Honouring our new life members.

This year’s AGM the presentation of two honorary life members to the clubs favourite ladies.

 Thea Skidmore was introduced into the rowing circle by the late Gus Oakley and has been involved with the regatta stall for the past 10 years. Thea has contributed her time and effort for social functions and supported the old boys on their weekend regattas. Many a tale to be told, according to Thea.

Congratulations Thea on becoming an honorary life member.
