I believe this brings us into line with other countries and a standard needs to be maintained or would be very confusing for those who compete at higher levels.

Why the complicated Divisions with minuses. Why can't we extend ranges from 1 (without having to go into minus mode). We should have 4 divisions - 1 to 16. The bottom division (13-16) should be encouraged to experience a competition (we could hold it at Mosman as we have a lot of new members).

Brenda et al – my reading of the revised Rule 16 that will apply from 3 April 2017 (see: https://croquet-australia.com.au/disciplines/golf-croquet/resources/gc-rule16-australian-version.pdf ) is that:
· there are no GC handicaps of 13, 15, 17 or 19 – the steps below 12 are in multiples of 2, so you go from 12 to 14, and 14 to 16 (see the revised trigger points on p4);
· everyone will now gain or lose points, including at either end of the range (which explains how someone might drop to 14 or 16); and
· I gather that CNSW is likely to stick to the 3 existing GC Divisions ie Div 1 would now be -3 to 4; Div 2 stays 5 to 8; and Div 3 is 9 or higher (I suggest that anyone on more than GC 12 shouldn’t be playing GC Pennants until their handicap improves). No doubt CNSW will confirm this before the 2017 GC Pennants entry closes…
