BS& BC sail measuring date is set for 30 March 10 am -12 noon
OYS will have sail measuring 13 April 10 am - 12 noon.
Application forms will need to be available at these 2 events so that certificate holders can complete them and sign them for the club handicapper to submit to the PHRF office. It is suggested that this be handled ASAP as the PHRF-LO office will be swamped with all of the new data this season. Alison to find out from Diana the best way for the data to be sent to the PHRF-LO office.
Club handicapper needs to assist at either BS&BC or OYS if they have members attending.
Club handicappers asked if they could get the spreadsheet that contained their club data comparing 2013 to 2014. Alison to check if this can be released now or needs to wait until after next CC meeting.
Each certificate holder in the district needs to be informed of the changes in 2014 (powerpoint presentation provided by AJ) and particularly cautioned that the spinnaker that was largest in 2013 may not be their largest in 2014 with the change from girth to sail area.

Hinterhoeller 25 (Free Spirit, Chimo, Chimo II) SP 2014 = SP 2013 -3
Hobie 33 ( Rogues) SP 2014 = SP 2013 (new dimensions implemented) which results in a +6 to ASP for Rogues

PHRF certificate in 2014 is $5 more.! All clubs were reminded that 2014 certificates could not be issued until dues were paid.
None of the GH clubs are expecting any new boats ie no initial assignments expected in 2014
2013 1st level appeal in the GH district was handled satisfactorily at the club level (BHYC) with the assistance of Central Council. Another threatened appeal in the district did not occur due to the demise of the appellant.
Alison has resigned from the OYS and is now a member at PCYC therefore can no longer represent GH district on Central Council. Susan Sproule (Counter Intelligence - BHYC main handicapper) was proposed by Alex McMillin, seconded by Jan Varkevisser, unanimously voted in as Golden Horseshoe District Chief.
