The Year Ahead

September 30, 2009 in Captain's Blog, John Blacker Society

Fresher’s Week is almost upon us and so too is another exciting year of rowing. The misfortunes of last summer have been put behind us and everyone is chomping at the bit for a piece of revenge. Both the men and women’s sides of the boatclub are looking as healthy as ever and anticipating strong performances throughout the year ahead.

Michaelmas as ever will largely focus on development. The senior crews will be building a base from which to attack in the spring while new novice talent will be put to use in Christchurch regatta towards the end of term.

Support for the boatclub continues to grow, we hope to see you along the river banks soon.

New Look Website

September 20, 2009 in Web Officer's Blog

Following the addition of the BCBC Friends Network, I’ve given the website a new look. Firstly, you will notice a new banner across the top of the page, shamelessly copied from the updated Balliol College website. The major change is that the main pages, blogs and friends network now appear together seamlessly. Of course you will have to log in to see most of the new features. Sadly I have had to remove the crew lists section as it seems not to function completely with the new design – it shall return (eventually).
