WSDC 2011 – Tournament Committee Meeting 2011

Relevant documents embedded after the break.

Dear all

Sorry for the delay in sending this information out. Attached are all the relevant documents for the forthcoming meeting of the Tournament Committee (formerly Council) at WSDC Dundee. You will find attached the tournament rules, the committee nomination form and explanation guide, the minutes from the last committee meeting in Doha and the agenda for the Tournament Committee meeting in Dundee.

Although we previously indicated that there was going to be the standard one month time period applying to rule change submissions etc we know that there was a bit of confusion about the status of the current rules post the E-AGM which put some people off submitting any amendments. We were also aware that the Directors forum was active at the same time and many delegates were busy preparing with their teams post the release of the draw and might not have had the chance to think about any possible proposals. As such we have decided to extend the submission period for anyone who would still like to submit any changes or additions to the tournament rules.

Following from the E-AGM the tournament rules as they stand will still apply for WSDC Dundee but will need to be entirely renumbered and edited so that they are distinct from the rules of the charity. I am currently in the process of doing this and will have a revised version ready for your consideration and ratification when the Tournament Committee meets in Dundee.

As such, the new deadline for submitting proposals for rule changes is midnight GMT on Friday 12th August. The deadline for submitting nominations for the three committees (Tournament Executive, Motions and Complaints) is Tuesday 23rd August. The former should be sent to me at this address and the latter can either be emailed to Pardip Chopra (Canada) who is one of the returning officers alongside Dick Wafer (Ireland) at or you can hand your form into either of them, in person, in Dundee.

I look forward to seeing many of you in just over a week in Scotland!

Best wishes
Beth James
Acting Chair, WSDC Tournament Executive Committee
