“Twenty-four years or so ago when the Vancouver Rowing Club was making its annual bid for championship honors at the N.P.A.A.O. regatta the name of E.H. Grubbe was included in the list of athletes chosen to wear the club’s colors. On July 22 and 23 Mr. Grubbe, now manager of the Cordova street branch of the Bank of Montreal, will preside over the thirty-first championship meeting of the North Pacific Association of Amateur Oarsmen at Harrison Lake as commodore.

A more earnest worker or helpful instructor the Vancouver Rowing Club can hardly boast than in its genial vice-president. With the aid of an exceptionally well-chosen corps of officers he hopes to make the regatta this year one of the best in the history of the association.”
