Use up the Old GC Handicap Cards !! The State Handicapper, Gareth Denyer has come up with a great idea. Although CNSW has distributed new GC Handicap cards to every club, many clubs will undoubtedly have old style cards that are new and perfectly useable, and some players may use their cards only occasionally. This being the case, once the conversion to the new system has taken place please feel free to use the `old' cards until they are all finished but apply the new handicap and index system.

Whilst the March newsletter was being put together and published the responses from Clubs were being received and considered. As a result the Board has agreed to move some clubs between regions and increase the number of regions from 7 to 9. The revised groupings can be found by accessing this information and if clubs wish to be in a different grouping, or a group want a different name, then please advise as soon as possible.The response to the expression of interest as a Regional Coordinator has not been as good as expected so the Board has decided to ask each Region to provide their coordinator. Regions can decide how this is to be achieved and clubs will be asked about this over the next few days.

Club officiers can and will assist in this process and if there are any serious problems clubs can contact or .
