Can I thank all crews who came today. I hope you felt welcome, I hope you had a good race.
We were fortunate this year with weather and river condition which were both benign. This made the event a lot easier as I'm sure you can all imagine.
Thanks you to ALL volunteers. The event simply doesn't run without you... from Chief Umpires through race monitors to stage marshalls and tea makers. This is a race organised by the YORKSHIRE REGION, not a club... and as a result it is a real team effort. THANK YOU
All medals for div 2 will be sent out in the post in the next 10 days for winning crews.
We aim to improve the event year on year and are obviously aware that there may be areas that need work... To that end we will conduct a wash up and discuss how we can do better. Any feedback of any type would be positively received and discussed.
Thanks SO much to everyone for today. I hope you all really enjoyed your time in York,
The meeting is aimed at umpires, but potential trainees, event organisers, etc. are welcome to attend.
Venue: University of York, probably 19:30 start. Confirmation to follow.
Congratulations to all the Yorkshire Volunteer of the Year Winners.
