It has been a big month for rowing history matters. Firstly, the two hour story of the 1924 Olympic Eight, "Paris or the Bush" was launched with great acclaim at Murray Bridge. The film makers Wayne Groom and Carolyn Bilsborow have undertaken this massive task with great skill. The final product is superb. My heartiest congratulations.

The other news was the launch of the City of Warrnambool Rowing Club history by Susan Finnigan. This history will be reproduced on this site shortly.
