    The two office computers will be replaced in the next few weeks in a long overdue upgrade for our accounting and records system. Currently we operate on the 1993 Windows XP system so this change will be a radical step up into the 21st century and we are bound to experience some teething problems so we ask for members to bare with us during the changeover period.

    The brand new Sykes Racing Coxless Quad "Stewart Allsop" and the brand new Sykes Racing Coxed Eight "Simone Richardson" have been added to the ERC fleet in October and now a brand new Sykes Racing Single Scull has been ordered for delivery in a few weeks time. This latest purchase is due to a Capital Grant received from the Essendon Football Club Social Club Sporting Groups Trust Fund for which ERC is very grateful.

    The ERC gymnasium carpet has been replaced with a new rubber matting which is much more appropriate for training and exercises using weights and other equipment. Some difficulty has been experienced with ergos moving on the new surface but the problem is being sorted out. A temporary solution is laying the old dark blue exercise rubber matting under the ergo machine.

    ERC has installed a new Solar power system that can produce approx 12.5kW with 48 Solar Panels installed on the roof each producing 260W of electricity. The system installation was completed on Friday 14th Oct 2016 and has had the final electrical inspection approval completed and is just waiting authorization from our electricity supplier AGL for ERC to be a power generator. The system will then be commissioned. The main AC/DC inverter is located in the Captain's room in the North-West corner. Obviously it is not to be touched by anyone other than an authorized person so as to avoid any safety or warranty issues.
