Notice of Special General Meeting 23 January 2023, ballot

Due to issues related to Covid 19, the 2022 Annual General Meeting was not held at the 2022 Aon Maadi regatta in March 2022.

Due to this postponement, we hereby confirm that this 2022 New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association Annual General meeting will be replaced with an online/postal Special General Meeting as per rule 10.4Article 14.4 of the New Zealand Secondary Schools Rowing Association constitution.

The 2022 New Zealand Secondary Schools Special Annual General Meeting will be held by postal ballot on 23 January 2023.

We now call for any remits and agenda items, these will be due by 5pm on 19 December 2022.

Agenda items and remits can be sent to Mark Weatherall - General Manager Community and Development at Rowing New Zealand on [email protected].

All questions and correspondence can also be sent to Mark Weatherall on [email protected].

Bio-security ALERT

As responsible users of New Zealand's waterways all member schools need to be aware of the Didymo ("Rock Snot") bio-hazard. Schools should be proactive in their efforts to avoid the spread of this pest*. For more information see the Biosecuity New Zealand website.


* Users of Lake Ruataniwha need to be especially vigilent as Didymo is confirmed in the Lake, fortunately SIR has an excellent washing programme in place to help members "check, clean, dry"

Missing History Can you help???

It is an unfortunate and little-known fact that NZSSRA lost the bulk of its records in an arson attack on a Member school in the nineties. So when we were contacted by rowing's Archivist, Evan McCalman, who was looking for Maadi regatta programmes to try and fill some gaps in the record we were unable to assist.

The missing Maadi Cup Regatta programmes, which are needed to complete the Archives set, are: 1970, 1975, 1976, 1979, 1980, 1982-1989 inclusive, and 1991.

These programmes are needed to establish with certainty when girls events began, to establish who were the winning schools (pre Jubilee and Dawn Cups), and thus the names of the winning crews.

If anybody can assist the effort to complete the archives by donating (or lending for copying and return) a programme from any of the listed Maadi regattas then that would be greatly appreciated. If you have one of these programmes please contact Evan McCalman: 35 Marine Parade, Eastbourne, phone 04-562 7154, or e-mail [email protected].
