|The ULU Boat Club Ergathon,
scheduled for Friday, October 24th, was cancelled at the
last minute, writes Ade Oshineye. This was due
to "reasons beyond our control" according to
Dan Brown, Vice President Sport. Rowing stars such as
Greg Searle, Tim Foster, and Rupert Obholzer had been due
to make an appearance in the charity event in Covent
Garden, to raise money for Stoke Mandeville hospital, as
well as fund raising for the boat club itself. However,
according to Brown, "problems with the Council"
meant that the event had to be called off with reasonably
short notice. Browns response when asked about the
chances of rescheduling was: "not in the immediate
future." The sponsors, Waterrower, were unavailable
On an unrelated note, the Boat Clubs Chief Coach, Maurice Hayes, is leaving to join the Amateur Rowing Association. Interviews for a successor have already been finished, and a replacement for Hayes position will be announced shortly.
