Rowers will enjoy three ‘club’ days at Brockton Oval–

All three divisions will play home games at The Oval Feb. 22, March 8, and March 29. The annual
Spring Family Day will be held March 29.

VANCOUVER–The spring schedule for the Province-wide Third Division was released this week and now a revised version is up on the BCRU website. Now the overall picture for the club’s 2014 campaign is complete.

Both the 1st and premier sides open the second half with two homes games in February, a road trip to Victoria (Windsor Park) in March, two home games, and a jaunt to Jericho Beach. They finish the regular season on the road in April at both Burnaby Lake and Victoria (Wallace Field).

The Thirsty Thirds open their campaign Feb. 8 at home to the Brit Lions ‘A’ squad, hosting both of their February games at The Oval. The squad visits Balaclava Park twice in March and plays their other two games that month at Brockton. They finish the regular season in April at both Burnaby and Trout Lakes.

The Rowers’ annual Captain’s dinner is scheduled for March 8, the annual Spring Family Day is scheduled for March 29, and the awards banquet will be on May 3. Here’s a look at the spring schedule:
