At a meeting held on Monday the 28th March the question of Tournament Delegates was placed before the Executive. It appeared that the Tournament Delegates were not working harmoniously but that they had decided to carry on together. A special meeting of the Executive was called on Monday the 41th inst., when the Executive was asked to consider the case and request the resignation of one of the delegates. This unpleasant task the Executive duly carried out, and an a result the following motion was passed unanimously:—That the Executive with great regret request Mr. Mason to resign the position of Tournament Delegate and give the following reasons:
- (a) That the Executive considers that Mr. Mason could have been of more assistance to Mr. Edgley although the Executive considers that the neglect has been somewhat unconscious.
- (b) That the Executive considers that this is a case of two people unsalted to work together.
- (c) That the Executive considers that it is expedient that the Senior Delegate continue in office, as he naturally has a more thorough grasp of Tournament rules and organisation and that Mr. Edgley personally is a man callable of carrying out the duties involved.
