New Zealand Disc Golf Association Incorporated Virtual Special General Meeting

Date: Saturday 12th December 2020

Time: 6pm

Venue: Zoom Conference

Date: 8th December 2020

Member announcement regarding change of nature of scheduled Special General Meeting on December 12th 2020.

Due to circumstances beyond the control of New Zealand Disc Golf, the Special General Meeting, which was to be held at Bella Rakha Retreat in Auckland, will now not take place.

Instead, a virtual meeting will take place online, using Zoom software. The link to the meeting is attached to this announcement, below.

Board member Mr Chris Smith will now chair the meeting, as Mr Martin Galley has stepped aside from the role due to his being the subject of a members motion. Mr Allen Gorthy will also be present, at the unanimous request of the board, as a sign of its confidence in him.

The time and date remain unchanged: 6pm, on December 12th, 2020.

The board regrets any inconvenience this change to the format causes and reassures members the meeting will go ahead, despite this late change.

The board wishes to encourage all members to participate in the current online vote, which remains open until 6pm on Friday 11th December. Online voting will then re-open at 5.45pm to 6.15pm on 12th December.

Scrutinising of the results will be performed by Luke Hetzel, of Frankly Web, and the final result will be published on the NZDG website (
