Posted on: 2 July
NSWVGA Executive Council have discussed what can be done to assist Veteran Members of the Association during 2020 regarding 2 tournaments at the beginning of the year were totally washed out and numerous tournaments that have been cancelled due to Covid-19 social distancing regulations.
The Executive Council have now approved the following gestures of support:
$300 SUPPORT TO CANCELLED AND TOTALLY WASHED OUT TOURNAMENTS
In a gesture of appreciation, it has been approved by NSWVGA Executive Council to allocate a “one-off” amount of $300 to Tournament Directors of NSWVGA Weeks of Golf which were cancelled as a result of an earlier decision by NSWVGA to cancel all Weeks of Golf held under its auspices prior to 4 September 2020 or a Week of Golf that was cancelled due to severe weather conditions.
These grants are given in recognition of the time and effort provided by the many volunteers and Tournament Directors who donate many hours to ensure the success of the many Weeks of Golf in NSW. The grant is conditional in that it must be used for the benefit of NSWVGA members only, whether that be at club or Group level.
GRASSROOTS PRIZE SCHEME – DUPLICATION OF PROGRAM FOR 2020
The Grassroots Prize scheme provides prizes for member competitions at the Club and District level. The individual clubs or districts decide on the form and timing of the competitions. Over 400 vouchers having already been provided across the State this year, with a total value in excess of $10,000.
As a further gesture the NSWVGA Executive Council have approved a duplication of the Grassroots Prize Scheme for 2020 bringing the total vouchers disbursed to over 800 with a total cost in excess of $20,000.
