Hall of Fame
Welcome to the Taurus Boat Club website, for past oarsmen and oarswomen of the Oxford Poly and Oxford Brookes University boat clubs. Current Brookes boat club members also welcome.
Our aims are simple - to promote social links between past and present members of Oxford Brookes/Poly Boat Club; to support the current student rowing club wherever possible, financially and otherwise; and to promote rowing participation amongst the Taurus membership.
If you haven't already joined Taurus, get in touch with our membership secretary and send in your form. Then let the partying begin...!
- June 2011 - The Taurus Henley Royal Regatta barbecue is hitting town: Saturday 2nd July in the Henley Cricket Club ground - all members welcome. See the official invitation, take a look at the "Ones to Watch" flyer listing Taurus and Brookes crews at Henley, and if you didn't come to last year's regatta, there is a handy cut-out-and-keep map so you don't lose your way. All PDF format.
- 7th February 2011 - We have just published a brand new 24-page Taurus newsletter, which should be dropping through your door shortly if you have paid your subs..... Click on the link if you haven't seen a print copy yet. Since printing and postage costs are so high, anyone who would prefer to just receive the e-copy and not the print copy is encouraged to let us know so that we can save Taurus money for better things (like partying and buying boats). Anyone who has changed snail address in the last year please let us know anyway (even if you're opting for the e-newsletter), so that we can keep records up to date.
- Despatches from Afghanistan - Antony Feltham-White, a former Poly oarsman, has been writing us letters from the front line with Her Majesty's troops, where he is working as a chaplain. We have a special page on this website for his latest letters, one of which is published in the February 2011 newsletter.
- Oxford Brookes University is running a campaign to build a new centre for rowing on the site of the current boathouse: see the OBU website for details. 2011 update - campaign currently on hold.
Taurus on Facebook and Twitter - See the Facebook link and Taurus on Twitter. There is also a group on LinkedIn.
Have you joined Taurus yet? If no, why not? Visit the Downloads page and print off the form. And send the website address to all your ex-OBUBC/Poly mates who haven't joined yet, and get them to do it.
