Nina will once again be organising the traditional post-Christmas club gathering and lunch this year for those who are in London over the Christmas break - as last year, rather than arranging this for Boxing Day, it will take place on 27th December. The plan is to go for an outing or a walk along the river, and then to meet back at the club for a lunch of hot soup, bread, and various cold cuts etc. Please let Nina know if you plan to attend, so she has an accurate idea of numbers for catering purposes - email@example.com
On Saturday 8th December 2012, 9 MAABC scullers took part in the annual Scullers Head, racing in singles from Chiswick to Putney. It was a brighter and slightly warmer day than the previous weekend, but racing in December on the Tideway is always a rather chilly affair! First home from MAABC was Lisa Kallal from the Senior Women's squad, in 23:53, missing out on the Women's Vet B pennant by just 2 seconds. Full MAABC results were as follows: Lisa Kallal W.MasB 23:53.17 2nd in category, 28th woman overall Gemma Peck W.IM2 24:01.56 5th in category, 37th woman overall Anna [...]

The day after the Fours Head, it was the turn of the veterans/masters squads to take on the Chiswick to Putney course at the Veterans Fours Head. The grey skies and drizzle of the day before were replaced by glorious sunshine and perfect conditions for racing. One of the 5 MAA crews originally entered from the Veteran Women's squad unfortunately had to scratch, but we had 4 crews racing, and of those 3 came home with pennants! A fantastic effort, with the wins going to the men's Vet B, men's Vet G and women's Vet B4x. Full MAA results were [...]
