  10. General Business
    1. Remit - Clearance Certificate

      Any Individual Member leaving a Club upon clearing all outstanding financial obligations to the Club shall be given by such Club a clearance certificate in the form prescribed by the Wellington Pétanque Association confirming that she/he is financial. No Club shall admit to membership any person who is or has been a member of another Club unless such a clearance certificate is produced.

      Proposed by Michael Rocks, Khandallah

    2. Remit to change rules re winners of tournaments

      At the moment it is the teams with the same number of wins but the team with the highest differential is not the winner. It is decided on who beat the highest ranked team of the tournament.

      I believe the ruling should be teams with the same number of wins but the one with the highest differential would be declared the winner. If both teams have equal wins and differentials, then the who beat who would be the deciding factor of who is the winner.

      Proposed by Margaret Mordecai, Otaki Pétanque Club.

    3. Remit - Men's WPA Tournaments

      That the WPA establishes Men's competitions for singles, doubles and triples each year, on a par with the Women's competitions.

      That WPA seeding points be available for both Men's and Women's competitions.

      Proposed by Trish Smart, Manawatu Pétanque Club.

  11. Matters for discussion
