The Committee would like to advise that the AGM, indicated on the program for September 2020 at Gungahlin, has now been moved to November 2, also at Gungahlin, because of the current gathering numbers (currently 100 we believe), social distancing and providing a buffet styled finger food to that many people in a confined space. We are hopeful that restrictions maybe eased come November. The round on 21 September will be stableford. ________________________________________
The Committee is holding a number of prizes for members who have won a voucher or Woollies gift card and have not collected them. Vouchers have an expiry date (one expires in September), so the Committee would like these vouchers to be collected asap so that members do not miss out on using them following a good score/win on a Monday.
Out of Bounds - Local Rule
The ACT Veteran Golfers Association has decided that for all ACT Veterans competitions we would adopt the following out of bounds option.
However, Members will still be able to play a provisional ball from the tee if preferred.
Balls Lost or Out of Bounds:
Alternative to Stroke and Distance: A new Local Rule was adopted in January 2019, permitting committees to allow golfers the option to drop the ball in the vicinity of where the ball is lost or out of bounds (including the nearest fairway area), under a two-stroke penalty.
For more information on out of bounds rules , see golf rule 18 from R&A Rules of Golf, effective January 2019.
Australian Veteran Golf Union Championships 2020
Following an online meeting between AVGU Executive members and the 2020 organisers on 12 May it was unanimously decided to postpone the Championships scheduled for Yarrawonga in November 2020 for 12 months.
The Yarrawonga organisers agreed that they would host the 2021 Championships at the same time of the year. They also advised that they would contact all registrants on their booking system to organise options for November this
year (eg refunds, prepayment for 2021 or entry to alternative competitions to be held at Yarrawonga this November).
As a consequence, upcoming Championships will be put back 12 months; ie. Western Australia to 2022, ACT in 2023 etc.

to be held at the Black Bull course, Yarrawonga Murray Course and Yarrawonga Lakes course
