Special General Meeting Outcome
The resolution to amend the rules was unanimously agreed at the SGM last evening. I have attached an amended version of the club rules so you can see this in the broader context, but the new rule 2.2-2.4 reads:
2.2 The College recognises the Onslow College Rowing Club (“OCRC”) as the sole provider of College level representative rowing within the Onslow College community
2.3 Students must be members of OCRC from the beginning of the current rowing season, or be subject to rule 2.4, to be eligible to represent the college at regattas. No student rowing for another club may represent the college at regattas
2.4 New Students transferring to Onslow College after the start of the season or current students wishing to commence rowing after the start of the season, may apply to the Executive Committee for membership. The Executive Committee may, at its discretion, admit new members after the start of the season on a case by case basis
There were seventeen present at the meeting (one of whom had two votes as they were the parent of two rowers). There were 16 eligible votes at the meeting. In addition, the Secretary received 10 proxy votes, but three were received after the "24 hour prior to meeting" deadline. There were 7 eligible proxy votes. The meeting voted unanimously in favour of the resolution (23 for, none against, no abstains).
The new rule applies immediately and we will ensure prospective rowers are aware of this as we recruit for next season. Thanks to those members who attended or gave their proxy vote.
The updated OCRC Constitution Rules v3.1 can be found on the Resources page.
The Maadi Cup runs from Sat 25th Mar to Sun 2nd Apr.
Rowers need to be at school in travel uniform at 7am to load the bus - equipped with homework, enough gear for the week and home baking!
