Of the meeting, Nancy Spinatra (Sal Wright) said
“It was fantastic to see so many unanimous votes in favour of some of the changes we proposed to our working policies. It really shows that we are all on the same page and that UKRDA is truly representative of the current derby climate in the UK. I am especially excited about the mini expo tournament we are putting on at Tattoo Freeze next year – we did the draw at the meeting, and it has us all energised for the future of the sport in the UK”
Policy updates and news on new projects will be communicated to the general public via the UKRDA website as they are finalised.
