Meeting Notes


Meeting Notes is a repository of information provided during meetings of the Northern California Rugby Referee Society. We make this available to all in the hopes that everyone can enjoy and learn from it. This is not to say the product we produce (or reproduce without permission and definitely not for profit) is the only way to do things--just one of many ways.

Some presentations are also available as video podcasts (viewable in iTunes). Due to limited space, podcasts are only available for a short period of time (months?).
