discussion on further clarifying of ambiguous rule are needed (Tables)

Johns suggested table below for member discussion only

NZMPBA Rule Simplification of General and Class Racing Rules.
1. Section 4 in the General rules should be removed and located in the Class Rules.
2. Remove the table following that section also.
3. In section 4 (General rules) look at the C1 class – it mentions that it should be for MONO only.
4. Again in section 4 (General rules) I believe it is saying that you can only run X and PX in Open Oval at a NZMPBA National Championship meet, yet the table below it indicates you can run them in Offshore!
5. Redo all tables to only one as below and possibly delete Deepvee (It’s just a simplified Offshore!)

List all courses together
List all timings systems in one place
John Belworthy has agreed to look into this some more this month and report back at the next committee meeting.

Murrays one off regatta entry fees
Murray suggests we put forward a remit at the AGM setting a fee of $25 for those who only want to compete at a one off regatta each year to cover insurance for them.

Dallas Gibson.
A celebration of Dallas’s life is to be held on 18 may in Hamilton.
Contact David at for details.

Fail-safe’s Murray raised an issue he has had with dynamite fail safes not always shutting of his engine. Scrutineers should be aware for boaters using this brand with Spectrum radio gear.

Increasing participation in our sport Peter suggests maybe we do a survey attached to the rear of our membership form to survey what people have in the way of boats and what events they want to run in.
