Following the EGM on Sunday 20th February 2022 a number of rule changes were passed by Rowing Ireland clubs.
According to our constitution these changes should be brought to the next RI AGM.
The next RI AGM is scheduled for October 2022. Therefore we propose that changes as voted by clubs should be brought to the board who can bring them in as temporary rule changes in advance of the AGM.
The rules also will incur significant changes to our tracker system and an outline document for this and the specific rule changes as voted on Sunday will need to be written for Rowing Ireland IT provider in order to make these complex changes.
At present all existing rules (prior to Sunday 20th February 2022) will stay in place until both these actions have been completed.
Once these actions take place Rowing Ireland will update our clubs accordingly so that there is ample notice of the changes. We will also update Clubs as soon as possible with an exact timescale once in place.
We really appreciate your cooperation and support during the changeover.
At present all existing rules (prior to Sunday 20th February 2022) will stay in place until both these actions have been completed. Once these actions take place Rowing Ireland will update our clubs accordingly.

The new rules document is being prepared and will issued by the board of Rowing Ireland in due course.
