NSW Field and Game Association

NSW Field and Game Association weathered a fairly tumultuous period in their history recently with an Executive that simply would not listen to their members. Some members of SSAA thought it would be a good idea to amalgamate the NSW Field and Game Association into the SSAA and set about ignoring the wishes of their membership by attempting to do just that.

The members finally had their say when they requisitioned a special meeting in Yass in April 2002.

The outcome was that a new President and Executive were elected, the so-called affiliation agreement with SSAA was thrown in the bin and the club that led the move was expelled from the Association.

The Association now has a fine team to build their future with Jim Pirie from Mudgee as President and Richard Mould from Cooma as Vice President. They have excellent plans for the Field and Game Association and I'm sure they will be able to stop the leakage of clubs to Victorian associations and reassert NSW as the predominant Field and Game State.
