British Rowing and the romans...

I moved to NZ in 2006 but retained my ARA membership just in order to continue to receive the magazine and keep an eye on old clubs/friends etc.

BR have recently notified me that they will no longer send magazines to overseas members and that I can instead purchase a subscription to their online magazine.  

Apart from the issue of them imposing this mid-term of my membership (surely they should wait until the next renewal before stopping it?), and the fact that I quite like paper magazines (nicer to read on the train), I'm now struggling to see just what I get from remaining a member if there is no magazine......suggestions on a postcard please!

A bit like the Romans....apart from roads, sewers, education etc..."what has British Rowing done for us"

Have you looked at Rowing Voice?
http://voice.rowingservice.com/

The content is much less 'fluffy' (and IMHO interesting) than the BR version. It is online, but the design is aimed to be printed out on A4 so you can still get your read on the train.

Sorry. Missed the crucial word 'more' after 'IMHO'
