Boat naming and summer barbecue

Colin and Les at Sons of the Thames Rowing Club boat naming.

Members turned out in force for a boat christening in honour of Colin Price, the club president.  Colin rowed for Furnivall SC in the 1970s in a number of successful club crews.  He moved to Sons in 1981 with a group from FSC and set about revitalising the club.  Les, naming his double, shared a few anecdotes from those days and explained how important Colin's boundless energy and enthusiasm had been for him personally and the club as a whole.  Mel had arranged a fine barbecue, the sun was shining, many old members had come along to reminisce, the Becky M was rechristened after refurbishment and a good time was had by all.
