1st Team Report (Jim Fossett) – Where are low handicap players?  Events are falling on unfavorable dates for Currie players, format is not liked by some, and pace of play is ridiculous.  With Dretzka waffling that they would have a team; allowed for the format to be tweaked back to the old format minus stroke play.  Informally, there are number of first team players across the county which prefers the head-to-head matches.
2nd Team Report (Jack Bruss) – 62 point lead; Captain Jack says get busy to win more points!  Next two matches are at Whitnall (lineup set) and Currie (We need some volunteers to do some spotting).
