2006 Tournament Regulations
The CA Tournament Regulations have been updated, and take effect from the start of the 2006 playing season. The major changes are:
- The old Regulation M1 (Powers and Duties of the Manager) has been split into two sections: "M1 - Duties of the Manager" (things which the manager must do) and "M2 - Powers of the Manager" (things which the manager may do should the need arise).
- M2d - Lateness. This new regulation clarifies the powers the manager has to deal with players who are not available for play at the required times; it also aims to provide more advice and support to the manager than the previous regulation which simply allowed the manager "to impose such sanction as he sees fit, including, in the last resort, disqualification".
- P1a2 - An extension of the list of "exempt fixtures" (those which can be entered by players who are not members of the CA) to include the Junior and Schools' Championships and Grass Roots and Centre Stage Golf Croquet Tournaments
- Appendix 1d - Initial Hoop Setting. New paragraph to define what should happen should a "protruding carrot" interfere with play.
