Most rowers and coaches enjoy watching good racing.  But often, you can’t get to the regatta in person – so here’s an opportunity to raise some money for your club and have fun watching excellent racing in the process:

We got the idea from Marlow Rowing Club who describe hosting an Olympic Breakfast – described here at 26 minutes through the radio show.

Things to think about before you start

  • How much money do you want to raise and for what purpose?
  • Plan your venue – you could just ask a local cafe, pub or restaurant to host it for you and share the profits.  Many venues are happy to open up if they know they’ll get customers.
  • Organise how you will tell your members and their friends about the event
  • Follow-up after each one telling them again how it went and what you raised

Enjoy the Olympic Rowing
