The CA Council met on 15th December 2001. This report is based on the minutes of that meeting. Further information on any item may be obtained from the CA Secretary, Nigel Graves.
A Golf Croquet Selection Committee has been established. For 2002 the members are Bill Arliss, David Hopkins, Derek Old, Chris Sheen and Stephen Mulliner. In future, Council will elect this committee and its Chairman at its first meeting after the AGM.
The existing Selection Committee has been renamed Association Croquet Selection Committee. These two committees will have at least one member in common.
Purposes of the CA Website are:
Limited information about facilities offered by non-member clubs may be held on this site provided the relevant Federation has approved the information. These entries will be clearly distinguished from those of member clubs and the Membership Committee will set a suitable charge.
Planning applications have been submitted to the local councils at Surbiton, Cheltenham and Southwick. A Special Meeting of Council has been called to select the location of the new Office. It is expected that the construction will be completed before the CA staff have to leave Hurlingham. Once the decision has been made a Building Appeal Fund will be launched.
It was agreed:
David Openshaw has been elected to the Management Committee of the WCF.
The Commonwealth Games Federation Committee will include croquet in their next review of recognised sports.
Bryan Judson, Chairman, Management Committee.
