NSWVGA and NRVGA Veteran Medals
In 2015, the NSWVGA initiated the striking of a Medal, plus a Cheque for $50.00, available to each Member Group of the Association. The NRVGA Executive, at the time, discussed this gesture and decided to incorporate it into out Veteran Open Day program. The Veteran who accumulated the most points would receive the Medal. The Executive also decided to strike another medal – the NRVGA Medal, plus a Cheque for $30.00, for Runner-Up in that award.
Every Veteran who plays in each of our Open Day receives 3 Points for participation. Points are also awarded on a 10-8-6-4-2 basis for the first 5 placegetters. in each field played on the day. These points acknowledge “participation”, “ability” and “consistency”. The Secretary will keep a Register of each Vets Open Day tabling points for participation and ability.
At the conclusion of the Vets Open Day program for the year, the Secretary will be able to announce the Winner of the NSWVGA and NRVGA VETERANS Medals. These will be awarded at the Presentation of our NRVGA Championships.
