Federation Resource Kit

The sections of the FRK which are now on-line have had a large number of changes made reflecting decisions of the Federation Executive Committee made at their last two meetings and rule changes made at the 2012 AGM. Section D2, which contains rules and guidelines for exhibition classes and the official mark sheets, once updated, will also be available on the web.

Federation is still reviewing the site content and functionality; comments, and suggestions would be most welcome – contact the Federation Secretary, Bob Gibson. Has your Society updated club information?
