British Rowing (BR) is moving towards reforming the way rowing events are run and,
as part of this, the points system. Much more flexibility for event organisers is
to be introduced together with a different way of assessing individual achievement.
BR’s Council on 18 June 2014 is to consider the outline and some of the detail for
the new system. Our two regional reps on Council , Barbara Millns and Michael Laing,
will be able to offer comments on our behalf.
To give them guidance on regional views, an open meeting is being convened by the
Northern Rowing Council at 6.30 for 7.00pm on Monday 9 June 2014, venue Durham ARC.
The meeting will discuss any issues arising from the Council papers, which are downloadable
from the links below. If we have time, we may also have a look at our own regional
event calendar and discuss if any changes are needed in the light of the review proposals
or for any other reason.
If you cannot attend, please email any comments on the review or regional calendar
to Colin Percy, NRC Events Coordinator, at email@example.com before the
meeting. Please state if the views given are from you as an individual or on behalf
of an event or club.
