Continental rowing championships
Hey rowing experts, in Template:Rowing competitions there are red links to Oceania Rowing Championships and Pan American Rowing Championships, but I have difficulties to verify that such championships exist or have ever existed. Does anyone know whether these two continental rowing championships are actually real? Do we have any relevant sources for such events? The "Pan American Rowing Championships" can easily be confused with Rowing at the Pan American Games, but this is not what I am looking for.
I do know that there are European Rowing Championships (since 1893, with gaps), African Rowing Championships (since 1993), Asian Rowing Championships (since 1985), and South American Rowing Championships (since 1931, Mexico southwards). With those four regattas only, there are no continental rowing championships for Oceania and US/Canada and thus I am curious… —MisterSynergy (talk) 20:39, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
- When you look at the template's edit history, you will see that it started out with a straight copy of Template:Wrestling and with the second edit, the term "wrestling" got replaced with "rowing". It would thus be fair to assume that it was just a wild guess that these competitions all exist and if there is no evidence for it, we'll just nuke those red links. I've done so.

- Yeah, I meanwhile recognized that as well and made some other changes to the template. Re. "Pan American Rowing Championships" I am not fully sure whether they really never existed, as such a regatta was apparently advertised in five "Rowing News" issues in 1998  ("August 1-2 Pan American Rowing Championships Fanshawe Lake, London, Ontario"). There were no Pan Am Games in that year, but one year later they were held including rowing events in Canada on Minnedosa Lake. Do we have someone here with knowledge about US rowing or Canadian rowing? —MisterSynergy (talk) 18:08, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
"Rowing administrators" and "Rowing officials"
Hey WikiProject, there are categories Category:Rowing administrators and its sub-category Category:Rowing officials. As a non-native speaker of English I have difficulties to understand the difference between "administrators" and "officials". The category hierarchy indicates that officials are a subclass of administrators (or, in other words, (rowing) officials are always also (rowing) administrators, but not vice versa). However, that alone does not really help me to understand the difference. Can someone please enlighten me about the difference, either with some formal definition or a descriptive explanation? Maybe some examples would help as well… (Sorry for the non-rowing-related question). Thanks, MisterSynergy (talk) 22:04, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
