Grand Opening of Wanaka Rowing Club Shed

12 August 2020

Wanaka Rowing Club Shed, Grand Opening, 23rd August 2020 at 11.00am.

On Sunday the 23rd of August the Wanaka Rowing Club is celebrating its new home at the Wanaka Water Sports Facility with a grand opening. The new shed sees the club transition to the next phase of
its development.

From humble beginnings some 12 years ago at the A & P Show wool shed, the club has grown from tworowers to a club to be reckoned with.

This year our junior rowers have had a successful season coming away from the hotly contested South
Island Secondary Schools (SISS) regatta with four golds and a silver. Wanaka Rowing Club (rowing as Mt
Aspiring College) had its best ever SISS results.

While it was disappointing that Maadi Cup - The New Zealand Secondary Schools Championships, didn’t go ahead as the Wanaka rowers were in peak condition, the next season is full of potential due to our dedicated coaches, a strong contingent of returning juniors, novices ready to race, and a seasoned crew of
master rowers.

All current and former Wanaka Rowing Club members are invited to celebrate the Grand Opening of the
Wanaka Water Sports Facility on Sunday the 23rd of August at 11.00am.

Please assemble at the playground near the new rowing shed, for a short welcoming ceremony and
celebration at 10.50am. Light refreshments will be served. Please dress warmly as the event is outside.
