Whoever has them, if you could please bring with you this year's trophies to the Christmas do, we should be allowed to put them in the glass cabinet they already have in the pub.
They want to see how many we have and how big first.
I think in order to get away with it and not look like we're taking the mickey too much, we should only put in the most recent ones and swap them over as we win more.
Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow evening.
worth a check in Mike's garage, i'm probably a year out of date, but I'm sure there were a few under the far window at some time ?
If everyone brings what they have tomorrow?

( and polishes them tonight )
I have the old trophies 🏆 some have been polished,not all are good.
They probably need a buff up before being displayed and also new labels ( all mixed up in the box), I am not sure what goes with what trophy.
I think the recent ones would be enough for the moment if people are prepared to bring them along.
Bestist... Les ...🏆👏🏆
I have three trophies: Golden Rowlock - Winning the 2008 London to Paris race; First 4 Oared Boat 2010 Ocean to City; Havant Borough Sports Team trophy for the Veterans Team.
Also a documented Hall of Fame... a bit sketchy in places...
The Great River Race is the famous river marathon of 22 miles racing down the Thames from Richmond to Greenwich every September. LCRC crews race against over 250 other traditional rowing boats of all shapes and sizes. Each boat carries a cox, and passenger, who can also row. We do it for fun, for a sense of achievement, to get fit and for charity fundraising.
The race is not for the fainthearted, 22 miles is over 3 hours of hard competitive rowing against many other boats on handicap - slowest starts first. There are various classes - Clayton Skiff, Thames Waterman and Four Oared; plus ladies and veteran’s trophies plus the usual fastest overall and fastest on handicap, in all some 35 prizes that the 2000 people compete for. It is the biggest and most prestigious international race in Europe. Over the years the club has had great success in this race as follows:
Our first entry year in Gladys earned third place in the Clayton Skiff Class, 22nd among 4 oared boats and 34th overall – a very creditable result, which put the Cutters on the GRR rowing map.
We entered Gladys, Mabel and borrowed a third Clayton Russell Marsh. Mabel finished in 3 hours 5mins - WINNING the Claydon Skiff class and came 18th overall. The crew in Russell Marsh came third in class and 50th overall. Our ladies team in Gladys were also the first ladies crew in the class, fourth boat in class - they completed the course in 3 hrs 17 minutes and were 108th overall.
This year we entered four boats, Gladys, Mabel, and the new Teifi Skiffs Millie and Lottie. Mabel came second in class this time and 11th overall - our highest position so far. Gladys came third in class. Millie had a very creditable result, with a time of 2:46:37 they came 13th overall, not far behind Mabel, showing just how fast these boats can be. Lottie also did well, with a time of 3:20:33.
Again the club entered four boats, Gladys, Mabel, Millie and Lottie. The Teifis raced each other the whole way and Lottie came 44th overall and just behind came a ladies crew in Millie who rowed the whole course, they came 46th overall and WON THE HARRY PURCHASE TROPHY for the Fastest ladies on handicap.
This year pressure for boats meant we entered five crews Gladys, Mabel, Millie, Lottie and the Langstone Ospreys in a Thames Salter Skiff. To our great delight the Ospreys came in 5th overall and WINNING two trophies the BOB CROUCH ROARING FORTIES Trophy for veterans, and the FIRST THAMES SKIFF on handicap. Millie was 8th overall. Mabel and Gladys third and fourth in the Clayton Class.
Again we entered five crews with the Ospreys defending their trophy. The Salter Skiff came in an even more creditable 2nd overall (beaten by just 15 seconds) and retained both trophies: the BOB CROUCH ROARING FORTIES trophy for veterans, and the FIRST THAMES SKIFF on handicap.
