3rds drop one to the Kats, Captain's Dinner a Success

The Rowers 3rd division lost an away game to the Kats 22-15. The thirds played hard in the first half, defending well and leading by 3 at the intermission. The defense couldn't hold, so they were sent into the bye week with another loss. The Thirds have a bye next week while the Prems and First division take on UVic at home. The thirds play next March 21st away at Kamloops.

In better VRC news the annual captains' dinner was a terrific success. This reporter has scant recollections of the event, but this video was recovered.

Wild times!

Fortunately for Ruck Muck readers, the Captains' dinner was live-tweeted by the Rowers own @NotJeremySabell, so I'll use that to piece it together.

First, a polite request for civility.

Followed by a bit of a history lesson (no substitute for experience).

A bit of legal advice. This had to do with a Tom Braidwood story, IIRC.

Some practical encouragement...


And it all started falling apart.

In any case, make sure not to miss next year's event. While the specifics are fuzzy, VRC captains from as far back as the 1950s gave talks that showed how the club has grown and how proud all of its members are to be a part of it. Big thanks to Timmy Shaddick for putting it all together so well. We'll see you all next year!
