OK Row - 8th and 9th October

 As you all know by now we will once again be holding our biennial "OK" row on the weekend of the 8th and 9th of October. This is a row from Oxford city boat club all the way back to Teddington lock (O-K, Oxford to Kingston). The event is a great oppourtunity for all the club to get to know one another better and enjoy the great scenary and stretches of water that the thames has to offer, as well as raising much needed  funds for our boatclub. The row will involve:
 - 144 KM
 - 60 rowers
 - 31 locks
 - 7 stops
 - 6 quads
 - 2 buses
 and one common aim: to have fun.

 We hope that by now all competant rowers will have signed up and begun fundraising. We would appreciate if everyone set themselves a target of £75. Although this may seem like a large figure if you get a little from a lot of people it will add up! Our top fundraiser last time raised around £600, so the competition is on!
 As well as supporting out club in our endeavour to buy new boats to allow everyone a fair opportunity on the water, we will also be making a very substantial donation to a local charity which supports people with ME. For infromation on the disease please follow this link to the ME association:

Thanks to everyone for your support; parents, sponsors and rowers alike. We look forward to seeing you all in Oxford!
