|Start the term!
|The term will kick off with a meeting in K9 Whewell's Court at 6pm on Sunday 6th October. This will be a chance to sign up and get to know about the races, training programme and coaches for Michealmas. Be sure to bring your diaries for the first week's outings!

|Men's Training Camp
|There will be a training camp for all members of the men's boat club in the week from the 29th September until the 4th October. It should provide a great opportunity to get back into the swing of things after the Summer break, and will be a good time to get in some serious training so that we can destroy LMBC in the Fairbairns.
The training camp will start with a meeting in E1 Great Court at 6pm on the Sunday. If you want to get in touch with me to ask any questions, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and my mobile phone number is 07989 555342.
I hope to see many of you there! (1 reply...)

|Women's Training Camp
|This is a great opportunity to row without the pressures of Term looming overhead as well as to refine your technique and improve your fitness under expert coaching while the Cam is quiet. It is a good chance for anyone who wants to try out for the top boats next term to get into shape before crew selection for the Uni IVs races.
The camp will begin with a meeting in K9 Whewells Court on Sunday 29th September at 6pm to arrange the first few outings and will run until 4th October. If you'd like to join us a bit later in the camp, just e-mail acl37 or phone 07764 475418! Hope to see you there!

|1st & 3rd vs BP cricket
|Last Sunday, First and Third played the Black Prince Boat Club (our old boys) at cricket, in the idyllic surroundings of Madingley. The match was a titanic struggle, swinging back and forth throughout the afternoon, but First and Third eventually won a tremendous battle by 69 runs to record victory in the inaugural match of what it is hoped will become an annual fixture.
See the Results page (or click here) for a full report, and the official scorecard.

|Michaelmas Training Camp
|Contact Andrew Fisher (ahlf2 - Men's Captain) or Alex Lee (acl37 - Women's Captain) if you would like to attend. Coaching will be provided from Sunday 29th September through to Friday 4th October. We hope as many of you will take advantage of this as possible, since it is a great opportunity to improve very quickly. We will be entirely on the Cam, and Mr. Coleman says it is not too late to change the date you want to come back up.

|May Term Campaign
|A large squad of the club's top oarsmen are leaving this weekend for a week in Dublin, where they will be training and competing in the Trinity Regatta next Saturday. (A second page of information about it is here.)
Others remaining in Cambridge or coming up early will be rowing on the Cam.
Last term's squads, which achieved good results across the board, will be strengthened by the support of our University level oarsmen and are looking forward to this term with confidence.
The club hopes to regain a great deal of the ground lost in last year's May Bumps come the end of term.
If you are interested in rowing this term to any extent, be sure to email email@example.com as soon as possible!

|2002 University Crews
|The University crews for racing Oxford have almost been finalised - sealing the fate of the 9 people from Trinity who have been trialling this year.
Steph Richards, last year's 1st men's cox who noviced here two and a half years ago, and Simon Knight continue to do very well trialling for places in the Blue boat or Goldie (the heavyweight men's 2nd boat) at CUBC. Unfortunately it seems likely that Simon may be in 'spare pair' (who are reserves in case of injury of another oarsmen), but we await the official press announcement on March 4th.
Simon Case, this year's president of the men's lightweights, will row in the lightweights' first boat. Tom Rose narrowly missed out out on a place in that crew, but will join Joe Grundy and possibly John Earl (depending on further selection) in Granta, the 2nd crew. Neil Talbott is a spare; it is thought he would have been firmly placed in a crew were it not for serious injury recently.
Finally, Alex Lee is to cox the women's lightweights and Sarah Taylor is a Blondie (women's 2nd crew) and lightweights spare.
We wish them all the best for the last few weeks of preparation. Goldie races 30 minutes before the Blue boat on the Thames, and the other crews race at Henley a week before on the 24th March.

|BPBC v FaT Cricket 2002
|Last year, we floated the idea of a cricket match between FaT and BPBC. Owing to a lack of planning and, consequently, enough players, the match stayed purely in the realms of the imagination and never reached the wicket.
This year will be different. Black Prince already have a team - we are already strggling to work out which bowlers we shall have to "rest" for the fixture.
I have provisionally booked the very scenic pitch at Madingley, 3 miles outside Cambridge, adjacent to the excellent Three Horseshoes pub, for Sunday 9th June. It's a good wicket, suited to all types of bowling.
Being the weekend before the Bumps, FaT should be fully available that day and will find cricket an excellent way to rest their aching limbs from incessant Grind pieces.
Format for the match is yet to be decided - and will be done by consultation between the two sides - possible plans are either 1 innings per side (30-40 overs) or 2 innings per side (2 x 20 overs). Tea will be laid on, umpires provided etc etc...the full works.
Black Prince BC CC greatly looks forward to meeting FaT CC on that occasion.

|Men's 2k ergo challenge
|In the new vein of challenges resulting in prizes, I am offering a bottle of wine to the man whose 2k on Tuesday shows greatest improvement on the start of term (in watts). The current leader is Dan Walker, who in the 4 weeks of the last training cycle improved by 20.8 watts, followed closely by Dan Jane with 19 watts. (2 replies...)
