President's Message

Dear Members,

I, on behalf of the Governing Body, welcome you for the year 2020-2021.

The Bengal Rowing Club has recently completed 91 years of its glorious existence. All along, it has maintained its culture, integrity and codes of conduct. It has enviable credentials in this part of Eastern India. The website shall serve as an efficient medium for the members to learn about the activities and goings-on of the club. It shall also provide a brief glimpse at the facilities available in the club and its future expansion programmes.

To provide the best possible sporting environment for our members, we have been renovating the sports complex since beginning of 2020. The coronavirus crisis has slowed down the process of renovation, but our development committee is working hard to complete the work as soon as possible.

Even under the present, complicated circumstances, the club has undertaken painstaking safety and logistical measures to provide members the facilities of food delivery, a limited capacity a-la-carte service at Waterview and Al Fresco, and the partial opening of some sports facilities like billiards/snooker, dart and table tennis.

The world is going through a historic albeit unpleasant time with curtailments on movements and contacts, following the lockdown. As the people all over the globe pledged to fight the pandemic with social distancing and quarantined lives, your Club is finding Zoom to be an easy way to stay connected with you to host virtual events. We hope to get you through these hard times by providing programmes and facilities to keep you occupied.

I convey my best wishes to every member. I also congratulate the Governing Body and the various committees for their continuing efforts to elevate the prestige and worth of the Bengal Rowing Club.

Thanking You.

Rowingly yours,

Prashant Kanoria
