The Spike or Victoria College Review October 1929
The rowing season has come round again, and we are sure that all active oarsmen will be anxious to get on the water again. The prospects of the club are extremely bright. We are fortunate in having a number of last year's "blues" available for this year, as well as several promising younger members.
A number of new members are availing themselves of the Star Boating Club's arrangement, by which they may become associate members and have the use of the club plant from 16th April to 16th September on payment of £1 ls., which will be used as part of their subscription if members decide later to join the Star Boating Club. These members are benig coached by older members of the V.U.C. Club, principally during the weekends, and the Club hopes to be able, from the promising material available, to select an eight which will be truly representative of the College. Any intending members are urged to apply to the Secretary or any member of the Committee and join early before the rowing season begins seriously, so as to get as much coaching as possible. A seat in the eight is gained only after months of good coaching and strict attention to training.
