As I have received no requests for specific agenda items I propose the following agenda as I feel that we have made a lot of progress in key policy areas over the past year and I would like to seek guidance from you as to where you feel the IRF should be focusing our attention over the next 1-2 years


1:00pm                 Introductions – All attendees will be asked to advise their name, country and the role they play in rogaining administration there


1:30pm                 Technical – A general discussion on technical and rules related issues. If Sergey is in attendance, which looks very likely, I ask that he leads the discussion otherwise I ask that Lauri takes the lead


2:00pm                 Strategic Plan – We have received quite a number of constructive comments on the draft Strategic Plan. David Rowlands, who did most of the drafting, has agreed to take the lead on discussing these and the plan to complete this work


2:30pm                 Break


2:45pm                 National Perspectives – I ask that one individual from each country represented at the meeting take not more than 10 minutes providing an update of the status and forward plans for rogaining in their country. Key items to be addressed include:

·         Size of the sport (eg numbers of events and participants plus geographical extent)

·         Expected or proposed development and growth

·         Item(s) they would like the IRF to address and/or focus on
