2018 GC Championships - Survey

Peter Freer
 

The Australian Croquet Association (ACA) is committed to improving the processes of organising all Croquet Tournaments. ACA is again using Survey Monkey as a platform for its members to provide candid and honest feedback. This feedback will greatly assist the Tournament & Events Committees, and ACA as a whole, in providing events that meet the needs and expectations of its members.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could click on the link below and take the time to complete a brief survey.

ACA welcomes all feedback from players & officials, but also from members who didn’t attend the GC Championships in the Hunter in Sept.

Information Documents to CNSW Club Secretaries

 

This week, CNSW emailed three information documents to Club Secretaries. They were (a) an incident report dealing with trip hazards in and around the clubhouse, (b) updating handicaps and indexes in the database and maintaining a single Golf Croquet Handicap Card, and (c) publication of the 2019 Yearbook and future Yearbooks. Your club should post these documents on the club notice board so that you can read them. They will be available in the Members Area shortly.

Club Information Grouped into Regions

 

On the Clubs Section of the CNSW Website, viewers will now see that Clubs have been grouped into their regions rather than Metropolitan or Country. This layout will be carried forward into the 2019 Yearbook. Enjoy.

2019 CNSW Yearbook/Member Directory

 

The 2019 CNSW Yearbook/Member Directory has been emailed to Club Secretaries, CNSW Officers and Regional Coordinators as a Portable Document Format file (PDF). The PDF is fully searchable. In the New Year, CNSW plans to make the Yearbook/Member Directory available in the `Member Area' which can only be accessed after Signing In.

Revision to 2019 Yearbook

 

It has been necessary to make a revision to the yearbook so that the details of a number of referees and coaches who changed clubs have been reinstated. New referees and coaches are also included. The PDF version has been emailed out to clubs and the hard copy is to be printed shortly.

We would like as many CNSW members to complete the survey as possible as the more responses we get then the more valid will be the data. If you are happy to undertake the survey please use this link – CLICK HERE to complete the Croquet NSW 2019-2021 Strategic Plan - Member e-Survey Members may receive an email about this survey from their club or CNSW Officers but will only be able to complete the survey once !!

Entry open for GC Golf Croquet Doubles & Singles, Melb 4-12 May 2019

Peter Freer
 

I confirm that entry is open for the Golf Croquet Doubles & Singles in Melb 4-12 May 2019.  Closing date is cob Thursday 18 April

 

The fliers for each event are attached. 

 

Pls note that on-line entry via the ACA website https://croquet-australia.com.au/entry-form/  is working, but don’t be surprised if payment via PayPal doesn’t work.  There is no need to re-do everything!  Events will be in touch with instructions on how to pay, and confirmation that you’ve entered (also an eye on Entries under each event on croquetscores).

 

Pls also note that entry is open, via the ACA website, for all national events in 2019.  There are some glitches – the Patrons is showing as a GC event (it is still AC!!), but hopefully this will be fixed next week….

Start of game Wrong Ball problem

Ron Humpherson
 

At the Mosman AC tournament this weekend I was called to adjudicate on this situation at the start of the game

  1. Player A correctly plays Blue to East boundary
  2. Player B correctly plays Yellow to Corner 4

  3. Player A plays Red to West boundary and measures in

  4. Wrong ball called
  5. Player A places Black on baulk-line in Corner 3 but Red is left in place

  6. Player B shoots Yellow at Red, misses and measures in
  7. Wrong ball called
  8. Referee called
I ruled:
  1. Return Yellow to Corner 3
  2. Remove Red and place anywhere on baulk-lines
  3. Player A to continue
Was this correct? the discussion with other refs here was uncertain.
