Hi Roger
Perhaps it would be useful to share this information on the cnsw community facebook page as there may be people on it more interested in this format?

Hi CNSW Players,

You are receiving this e-mail from the new 'groups.io' platform and all the valid members of the old Yahoo list have now been transferred.

The message archive from the old list has also been transferred and so everything should now be up and running.

As mentioned before, at this stage the list is open so that anyone can subscribe to it but, if this becomes a problem, we can restrict it so that a moderator must approve a new subscription.  By leaving it open it makes subscription to the list easier.  A moderator can send an invitation to someone and all they then need to do is to reply to the message to validate the subscription.   Alternatively, anyone can go to the associated web site: https://groups.io/g/cnswplayers and click on 'Join this Group' and be guided through a couple of simple steps to subscribe.

The group e-mail address is cnswplayers@groups.io and, at present, there are 66 subscribers. You can see who is subscribed at: https://groups.io/g/cnswplayers/members

An e-mail sent to the group list will be sent to all subscribers and a reply will also go to everyone.

On the left hand side of the 'Home' page https://groups.io/g/cnswplayers you will find a number of menu tabs, one of which is a Wiki where I have attempted to define the purpose of the group and what I believe it should be used for.  If anyone would like to add to, or comment on it, then, as with any Wiki, it can evolve over time.

Hopefully this list will continue to help us share knowledge on the sport we all love.

Hi Roberta,

I am not a great  fan of Facebook but if you would like to advertise this list on Facebook then please do so.  I suspect that many of us old timers are more comfortable with an e-mail list than Facebook.

Cheers

Entries open for the annual Makara

Roberta Flint
 

Entries for the annual Makara competition held in October/November each year are now open. This is a friendly interclub and a great way to get out and play against others on other lawns. The event is organised by a number of the Clubs in the southern met region (historically the seven sister clubs, hence the name Maraka) and played at a range of venues.

There are events for association, golf and ricochet croquet so something for everyone!

I encourage you all to think about entering as many events as possible!

Offside balls in GC

Brenda Evans <brenda@...>
 

Hi All,

I would just like to ask about a situation we had this morning.

Pink runs hoop 5

White is more than half way to hoop 6 but is not offside, having come off green.

Brown immediately runs hoop 6.

White has not moved but is also halfway to hoop 7 (coming from hoop 6)

Is White offside now?

I know this has happened occasionally when a player runs hoop 11 and, before all players have taken a turn, hoop 12 is run. The same question arises : are balls offside if they are still near hoop 11 (and therefore near hoopp 13)???

Thank you.

Brenda Evans

Re: Offside balls in GC

Barb Piggott
 

Hi Brenda
White is still OK as it reached that position having come off an opponent ball regardless of number of hoops scored. The question to ask after each hoop is how did that ball get there to determine if it is offside.

Re: Offside balls in GC

Dear Brenda,

White has still come off Green.  Thus it is not offside. Rule 10(b)(3).

Your second question depends on how the potentially offside ball(s) reached their positions.

Cheers,

Tony

Thank you, Jan.

Yes, I am aware of that but sometimes it is hard to find. Also, there are sometimes differing interpretations.

I like to confirm with the experts, as has happened today. Thank you, Tony and Barbara.

And the rules can be unintelligible sometimes. For some reason we cannot understand the playing the wrong ball rules, we can stay with it up to 2 (e) but from then on ...

What's the penalty - GC

 
Edited

A player is setting up for jump shot.

Just before striking the ball he has on last set up swing and touches the ball. The referee says that is your stroke.

The player continues and plays shot.

Is it wrong ball play- since the first touch was his stroke and can a warning be issued in accordance with Rule 14?

or is there some other breach of the rule?


All thoughts gratefully received

Croquet Club Governance and Planning Documents

Ted Woodley
 

Hello all,

 

I have recently taken up croquet and just been appointed to the Committee of the Chatswood Croquet Club.

 

As I have previously had experience in corporate governance matters I have been asked by the Committee to review its policies and documentation. 

 

Before doing so I would like to know of any such documents and policies that other Clubs may have so that I can more quickly come up to speed and not reinvent the wheel.

 

I have spoken with Roger Evans, who has kindly emailed me a number of Jamberoo CC documents (Constitution, Standing Resolutions, Committee Guidelines, Success Factors, Risk Management Policy, Strategic Plan), and has referred me to the relevant CNSW documents, particularly the Committee Guidelines.

 

So I would appreciate it if anyone can send me any relevant Club policies and documents.  I would be very willing in turn to share any documents that we end up producing.

 

On a related issue, I would also appreciate receiving any Strategic Plans.

 

Thanks

Re: Croquet Club Governance and Planning Documents

Ted, I pinned a copy of the club’s policy documents on the noticeboard last week.

It’s about visitors to the club, club draw mornings, invitation days etc...

It should still be on the board, is this what you are after ?

 

Cheers

Bebe
