Awards at AGM

Field and Game - - NEWS -

Field & Game Aus­tralia’s An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing at the MCG on Oc­to­ber 13 failed to reach a quo­rum so the gath­er­ing went ahead as an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion for del­e­gates.

An­nual awards were also an­nounced with Sale Field & Game win­ning the Blue Wing Tro­phy for con­tin­ued com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion to vol­un­teer con­ser­va­tion and habi­tat im­prove­ment.

Bairns­dale fin­ished se­cond in the Blue Wing Tro­phy and North­ern Ter­ri­tory third.

North­ern ter­ri­tory picked up the Me­dia Award for con­sis­tently pro­mot­ing Field & Game ac­tiv­i­ties and ac­tively cam­paign­ing on im­por­tant is­sues.

Be­nalla FGA re­ceived the Pest and Ver­min Con­trol Award.

Gor­don Ma­calpine from Sale FGA was pre­sented with a Mem­ber Ser­vice Award in recog­ni­tion of out­stand­ing ser­vice to the aims of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The re­sults of the Board elec­tion were also an­nounced at the AGM and amended sub­se­quently fol­low­ing the dis­cov­ery of three valid bal­lot pa­pers in the re­turn­ing of­fi­cers junk email folder.

In ac­cor­dance with the con­sti­tu­tion a re­count was con­ducted, which did not change the per­son­nel elected, but did change the or­der and there­fore the length of ten­ure for two can­di­dates.

The re­sults were are as fol­lows (lower score in­di­cates high­est pref­er­ence):

• Mark Da­ley, Bendigo FGA: 274 points, elected for a three-year term.

• Peter Hawker, Frankston FGA: 306 points, elected for a three-year term.

• Glenn Falla, Gee­long FGA, 309 points, elected for the two-year term.

• Daniel John­son, Ballarat FGA: 371 points, not elected.
