These and other events are both critical to the success and standing of the club, and the success of rowing as a sport. For these and other events the club does ask its members for support in running the events. In addition Vesta runs a number of socials and parties throughout the year for its members and naturally asks that members provide as much support as possible. This includes preparing the club for parties and help with running the bar.\u003c/span\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: rgb(255, 255, 255);\"\u003eWe also ask as many of our members as possible become au fait with running and managing the bar.
