At the AGM, we will vote on ammending the WDVGA constitution so that ladies can become members: The notice of motion is:

"To amend Division 1 section 9 of the WDVGA constitution by deleting the word "male" so that section will read as follows - Any person who is over the age of 55 and who is a member of a Golf Club recognised within the Wimmera region of the Victorian Veteran Golfers Association Inc, and who supports the purposes of the Association is eligible for membership."
