Each autumn the Nottingham Rowing Club training centre, situated overlooking the River Trent between the Forest Stand and Ladybay Bridge, is transformed into a plush dining area for a glittering 'Oscars Night'. Organised by Helen Bloor, the club's newly-elected Captain (the first woman to hold that role), the evening is devoted to recognising high achievement by club members over the previous season.

Reflecting performances in the 2013/2014 season, the 2014 winners were: 

Senior Man: Rowan Law (who is actually still a junior!)

Senior Woman: Nikki Spencer

One to watch/up and coming: Hannah Stocks

Junior Man: Harvey Kay

Junior Woman: Katie Swales / Siena Hayes

Veteran: Paul Williamson

Rose Bowl for best performance by a crew: Women's Intermediate VIII

Coach of the year: Helen Bloor

Captain's Cup: Anna Thornton

The event was a great success and the venue was quickly returned to a training centre by club volunteers the following day.
