Karapiro Rowing held it's Annual General Meeting on Sunday 14 August. Most member associations were present with the exception of the Auckland Secondary Schools Association and the Wanganui Rowing Association - neither of them tendering an apology. James Boyce was appointed to the Board after the vacancy left by the resignation of Don Craig.
This year, a certain number of fees were increased as Karapiro Rowing has not increased it's regatta fees since 2008. The most notable of the changes would be the new penalty for crews who fail to appear at the start which is now $60 + GST and the increase in the Non-progression fee which has been raised to $150 + GST.
The opening date for entries for the Bay of Plenty Masters Tri Series regatta has been changed to the 17th August, the same day as the Bankstream New Zealand Masters Championships entries open.
Cambridge Rowing Club have requested that KRI put the Mixed Coxless Four back on the race program for this regatta on the basis that it is a popular event among masters rowers and that there are many rowers who will enter it. For this reason it has been added to the program.
Two new events have been added to the Masters Rowing Champs program for the 2016 event. A Mens and Womens Novice Double Scull events have been added. For details go to the events listing.
In addition to the two new events, the two Novice coxless four events have been changed to Novice COXED fours in the interest of safety.
This season sees the Karapiro Club Regatta return to being a two day regatta as it was for a number of years. As a result of information received last year from a survey of all rowing coaches who attended KRI regattas, the majority wanted more traditional racing formats at this time of the season and preferably over two days instead of one. This being the case, KRI are returning to a traditional program, raced over eight lanes with heats and finals. Depending on what entry numbers are like when entries close as to how many petite finals will be offered. The regatta will cater for both club and school rowing programs.
