Vets Newsletter April 2023

Posted on 26th April, 2023


Two more tournaments have been held in late February & March, Port Macquarie, and The Coast. These are reported on later in the newsletter. Pictured are the committee, plus yours truly at the Port Macquarie welcome!

We have three more coming up in April and May. Long Reef was held on April 14th, Cootamundra is on 25/26 May and Wollongong on 29th May. Plenty to choose from with lots of different areas being covered. The event at Muswellbrook on August 21/22 has now closed. But they are starting a waiting list in case of cancellations. Gee you must be quick these days! It’s not too late to enter the Cootamundra tournament as it closes on May 15th. Why not come and join us?

Now for some housekeeping:
When you are sending information into us could you please scan any information on your computer and not your phone. Sometimes it is the formatting, sometimes the size and quite often just impossible to read. When entering a tournament in which you need a partner (2 ball) or more in a 4-person team event, would you please NOT pay singularly. It would be appreciated if you could please pay together in one transaction.

Should you have to withdraw from a tournament before the draw has been completed, you will get all your money refunded to you. If you withdraw after the draw has been completed, and you have a valid reason, you will get your entry money refunded less a $7.00 administration fee. If you withdraw without a valid reason, there will be no refund.

Vets Newsletter March 2023

Posted on 27th March, 2023

The tournaments are coming in fast & furious. Two have been held since the last newsletter, Bowral, and Bayview, both reports later in this issue. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the Bowral tournament but Virginnia Hewitt, VWGA Vice President, was there in my stead. Two more tournaments will be held in March, Port Macquarie, and The Coast. These will be reported in the next newsletter.

In the January newsletter I noted that I would report on the AGM that as held last November. As I have said the meeting went very well and we managed to get a quorum. Having delegates attend by zoom is a great benefit and certainly means that more country clubs can be involved.

There were a few questions that were asked and here is the committee response as per our December 2022 meeting.

1. Why is the AGM now held on a Wednesday instead of a Friday?
Answer: From now on the AGM will revert to a Friday.

2. Number of players and a shot gun start for Metropolitan tournaments.
Answer: We prefer to have no more than 120 participants. A shot gun start is purely a domestic matter. This should be a negotiation between the delegate and the club. The VWGA are happy to play in any format.

3.Co-opting local ladies to help with tournaments on the day.
Answer: We already do try and include any local ladies who wish to help on the day. Mainly this is the delegate.

4. Cammeray is due to re-open in its new format in Autumn 2023. Eva hopes that the VWGA show
their support when it does re-open.
Answer: The VWGA committee are very keen to support Cammeray, how we do that is still under discussion.
