The Blackmore Club is named after Mr EG Blackmore who was, for many years, coach and adviser to the St Peter's College Boat Club.  In 1893, as President of the South Australian Rowing Association, he presented the Blackmore Shield for competition between the first crews of St Peter's College and Prince Alfred College.  At that time it was a race between fours, unlike today where it is a race between eights.

The Blackmore Club is different to the other clubs in that it does not involve itself in a regular competitive schedule but is presently more of a social grouping bringing together Old Scholars, supporters and friends, with a common interest in Rowing.

Blackmore Club Membership and Tie

We are pleased to invite you to join the Blackmore Club.  The Blackmore Club was established to assist former Saints rowers to stay in contact, and to support rowing at Saints. We attempt to achieve these goals by hosting Blackmore Club dinners, as well as evening sun-downers at the boat shed. We also provide a pasta night for the senior crews the weekend before the Head of the River, and of course we award all winning Head of the River crews with an engraved Blackmore Club Medal at School Muster. Many of you would know how special this is.

Your membership money should be viewed as a donation that will be invested to fund these on- going activities, and thereby preserve this great tradition at the Saints Boat Club. To join, visit The Blackmore Club Website:
