General Business

  • The date for the end of year function is now Saturday 7th October
  • It was suggested that the MPA Website have read only access for anyone wanting to see what MPA has to offer
  • The last Tournament for 2017 is Mixed Pairs on the 30th September with the breakup function on the 7th October at the Woodbourne Tavern
  • Those who attended the Seddon Shield AGM were disgusted with attitudes of some people including one person who walked out. Very disappointing.
  • The Seddon Shield Tournament held in Greymouth was a success and Marlborough bought the trophy home.
  • Committee approved to have the ability to pay accounts online. We need to arrange access to make payments by EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer).  MPA still requires two signatories to make any payment.  The signatories are:
    • Mike Budny (President)
    • Nicole Chauval (Treasurer)
    • Gail Perano (Secretary)
  • The Golden Oldies of Upper Hutt have been approached about hosting a rep tournament where Marlborough would go to Upper Hutt in the first year then the following year Marlborough would host the tournament
  • Condolences from The Marlborough Pool Association for the passing of Justin Carlaw
  • Woodbourne Classics were granted dispensation for a non regulated player to finish the Champion of Champions due to the passing of Justin Carlaw

Meeting closed:        There being no further business the meeting closed at 6:55pm
