Novice Eights feature as Exhibition Events in 2014
It is with delight we announce that the 2014 Aon Maadi Cup and the 2014 Meridian South Island Secondary School Championships will include Novice Eights as exhibition events. The girl's event will take place as event 9A and the boys as event 17A. So get your crews training and we will see you competing at Lake Ruataniwha!
Crew Limits at Championship Events
There will be limits again for entries to these championships events, due to the large numbers and limited time regattas have to complete the events we are forced to restrict entries.
All races with limits imposed will be open to supplementary entries after the entry closure date to fill any remaining lanes or races.
The annual account for membership has been emailed to schools. If you have not received an invoice please contact Sonya to check the accounts address for your school. Payments need to be made in order for your school to enter the school regattas in March (entry will not be possible without membership completed.)
New 2015-18 Championship Programme
After a lengthy review process the 2015-18 Championship Programme has been decided. This programme will for the first time include the new octuple events which were voted in at the last AGM. And due to their popularity novice eights will also again be included. The programme in 2015 will consist of a massive 52 events!
The octuples will first feature in the 2015 programme and will be raced towards the end of the programme. We look forward to seeing these extra events in 2015 at Lake Karapiro.
School Colours updating your rowsuits
Schools are required to compete in approved colours so if you are updating your rowsuit stock please make sure the colours you have are the ones registered against your school name. Check out www.schoolrowing.org.nz for a list of colours. If your school is new or would like to change its colours you will also need to contact Sonya.
