I was interested to hear the RPRA Manager's opinion on the Hall report, this is what he says in this weeks British Homing World 10/11/2017.

"The Hall report contains many recommendations that i personally believe are essential, not only to rationalise the RPRA but to facilitate the decisions required to move the sport forward. Therefore, to say i was disappointed with the decision of Council to reject the report in it's entirety would be an understatement. However i respect the decision of Council who vote in a manner that they believe to be right. It's now done to the membership to attend their relevant Region's meeting to put forward their thoughts or proposals on the matter and i would encourage anyone who is able, to do so." - Ian Evans, RPRA General Manager.

Well said GM, all RPRA members would be best advised to read this report. Click on the Link Above HOMER.
