The AGM will be taking place on February 27th at the Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service (7 Mansfield Road, Nottingham NG1 3FB - opposite House of Fraser), starting at 2pm (with an end time no later than 5pm). You can find the full AGM information pack, which includes reports from the Executive Committee and the motions for the AGM, attached to this article along with the latest Rankings Sub Committee meeting notes.



MOTIONS FOR THE AGM

The EC received 41 motions for the AGM. It is clearly not practical to debate all of these motions within the time available for the meeting, as even without any other business this would allow less than 5 minutes for each motion. The EC has therefore selected a small number of motions for debate and voting, 19 in total, in order to allow a full debate on those motions selected. In making our selection, we have attempted to reflect the range of topics and concerns addressed by members, and have also considered what is a matter for the AGM and what is a matter for the EC.

Some of the 'motions' were in fact suggestions or admin points which we have taken on board for consideration. Others proposed changes to the rules of minigolf, which is not a matter which members should vote on as the rules are set by the WMF. The EC is in the process of drawing up a comprehensive rules document, based on WMF guidelines, which will be formally approved by members at the 2017 AGM. Other motions dealt with tournament formats, which are the responsibility of the EC, taking into account factors such as the venue, course, time available and number of players/teams.


We are always happy to receive feedback and suggestions, and have taken on board feedback received in post-tournament surveys, but ultimately the EC as tournament organisers must be free to set the format. There were also two motions on the international selection criteria, which again is the responsibility of the EC, taking into account a range of factors including rankings, attendance and international experience.
 


We are therefore planning to table the following motions for debate and voting. Those motions not selected are published at the end of this section of the AGM pack, and can be discussed under Any Other Business if time allows.


The EC is always happy to receive feedback and suggestions from members but for reasons of efficiency and time management, it is not possible to debate every suggestion at the AGM.


The Motions to vote on have been split into the following subjects:


1)     PLAYER CATEGORIES

2)     RANKINGS

3)     GENERAL POINTS

 

The Motions not selected to vote on have been split into the following subjects:

 

1)     TOURNAMENT FORMATS

2)     RULES

3)     MINIGOLF BALLS

4)     GREAT BRITAIN SELECTION PROCESS



All of the motions can be found in the AGM information pack and details of the proxy voting process is covered at the end of this document.

Please note that the views expressed in the motions are those of the individuals raising the points and their motions have been included in full in their own words.

The Executive Committee would like to thank all the Tour Pros who submitted Motions for this years AGM and look forward to seeing the response from our members to the proposed points.
