Below are items from the WDVGA committee meeting held after the Toolondo visitfor the attention of members. Printed copies will be available at the next few events.

  • News from the President:    We are now well into the 2021 program, but have missed on our visit to Jeparit due to Covid. We are grateful for the co-operation of all clubs given the disruption over the past year, and hope we can keep to schedule for the rest of this year.
  •  Program for 2022:  The committee is starting to develop the program of events for 2022 and there are likely to be some changes for a range of reasons. Our association offers 26 events over 18 locations in each year, which is a large commitment on all. With participation reducing during the first part of 2021, we are looking at all options to provide our members - and the host clubs - as many options as possible. We would like to hear your thoughts on this. We are also revising the number of grades for each event, with over 50 as three grades, up to 30 is one grade.
  • Committee Members for 2022:  Due to personal reasons, President Barry will not be seeking re-election at the 2021 AGM, and Captain Rex Schirmer will also step down. The association cannot function without an executive and we encourage you to consider stepping into a role to assist with running the WDVGA. Nomination forms will be available in the leadup to the AGM in October.
  • Greens Champion 2021:  Congratulations to Ivan Reinheimer as the 2021 Greens Champion. Ivan won with the best two of three combined scores from Edenhope, Horsham and Nhill.  Apologies for the delayed notification but we had some confusion with the scores at one stage.
  •  SandScrape Champion 2021:  The three rounds at Rupanyup, Minyip and Natimuk will determine the 2021 Sandscrape champion - again with the best two of three scores from these events.
