Annual General Meeting March 22, Karapiro

The Annual General Meeting of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association will be held at Karapiro on Sunday 22 March 2015. It will take place at the Don Rowlands Centre after the Maadi Cup safety breifing has been completed.

Annual Subscription $160 per school

Invoices for the NZSSRA annual membership subscription ($160) were sent out to member schools' Sports Coordinators at the start of the Season and were due to be paid by 1 December 2014 at the latest.

Some members have yet to pay the annual subscription. If your school is on the list of non-financial members you will not be eligible to compete at NZSSRA Championships regattas.

Note: there is a late payment penalty ($40 per month) for schools that have not paid their annual subs by 1 January 2015.

Important: if you are paying the subscription on behalf of the school then please remember to let the school know so we don't receive multiple payments of the subscription!

Limits on entries at Championships new & tougher limits required for 2015

There will again be limits for entries to the Championships regattas. These are due to the large numbers of crews Members want to enter and the limited time available to complete regattas.

  • 2015 Aon North Island Championships: the limit for doubles has been lowered from 2 to 1. The limits are now as follows:
    • Doubles: 1 crew per event per school
    • Single, Pairs, Fours and Quads: 2 crews per event per school
    • Eights and Octuples: no limit
  • 2015 Meridian South Island Championships: these limits are unchanged:
    • Eights and Octuples: no limit
    • Other boats: 2 crews per event per school
  • 2015 Aon Maadi Cup: the limits around small boats have changed. The limits are now as follows:
    • Doubles: 1 crew per event per school
    • Singles: 2 crews per event per school
    • All other events: 4 crews per event per school

All races with limits imposed will open to supplementary entries (after normal entries close) to fill any remaining lanes or races. During supplementary entries the limits are slowly raised. This provides a limited opportunity for some extra crews to be entered on a first-come first-served basis.
