The current events calendar shows forthcoming events.

Head of the River Race : 23 March 2002

We failed to get a crew together for HORR and forfeited our place on the river. Big Shame. QCBC didn't manage it either. Shambles all round.

4.25 mile course on the Thames Tideway between Mortlake and Putney (weather)

  • First division starts at 09:45
  • BHBC should enter one boat, probably in S2.8+ category

The BHBC VIII must avenge last year's horrible defeat by the Queens' Men. Sorry state of affairs.

The HORR website will have more details nearer the time. Kingston University is still the place to go for a course map.

Henley Royal Regatta : 3–7 July 2002

The 2002 Royal Regatta is some way off, but this is in way of a reminder for your diary. Boar's Head Boat Club are planning to meet up in and around the Stewards' Enclosure on the Friday afternoon and Saturday. We would like to organise a picnic for members and friends for 12 noon on Saturday 6 July. Actually there was no picnic but a lot of us did meet up on the Saturday afternoon.

Please get in touch with the Club Committee if you're interested in meeting up with other Old Boars. Suggested meeting points for Friday are at the Fawley Bar in the Stewards Enclosure at 3pm and (for those who can't take the afternoon off work) again at 6pm.

If anyone is able to help with Stewards tickets for BHBC and QCBC members without tickets, we'd be very grateful if you got in touch.
