The ASRL Committee would like to advise that while in Perth they would love to talk to as many people that are interested about any issue confronting our sport or issues you think can improve the sport.

We will pick a time on both Friday and Saturday and have a call put across the Boat Area PA as to where committee members will be so you can simply stroll up and talk to us because like always we are always open to hear your opinion on a range of issues.

No one will have escaped the debate on safety and PPE. By the time you all arrive in Perth we will have held a meeting with the SLSA Board and hopefully have a clear picture of the road ahead. This is a very complex issue that we believe still requires work. We are well armed to debate the total merits of all safety issues with a SLSA Board who have opened the doors for us. Don't believe for one minute that the Board decision has been made with anything but the safety of its members at heart so they are as keen as any of us to have a comprehensive end result. That doesn't mean that we have to or do agree with every aspect of the current policy nor that we can't run an argument to change aspects of it.

Under the headline "Comprehensive" we are suggesting some pretty big step additions to the overall safety in our sport. This will include the Bond Safety Matrix that we have been supporting in development for the last 12 months and a complete new look at Sweep Accreditation. We are keen to listen to your thoughts on all this because if we are successful at the Board meeting we will need to consult widely in formulating the next step.

If you have the time you are very welcome to come talk to your committee so hopefully everyone goes home that little bit wiser.
