Hockey Council Meetings

Hockey Council Meetings

During the Tournament, meetings were held of the New Zealand Women's Hockey Council and the New Zealand Hockey Association. The meetings were brief and informal, there being little to discuss apart from the question of "blues,"


Iris Orchard and Marie Walter, both of Canterbury, were re-elected President and Secretary respectively of the N.Z.W.H.C.

Delegates were unanimously in favour of awarding hockey blues in wartime and a recommendation to that effect was to be made to the N.Z.U.S.A.


Ken Hiddle of Victoria was elected in place of Arch. Ives (Vic.) to the position of treasurer and adviser on hockey matters to the N.Z.U.S.A.

Like the women, delegates were unanimously in favour of awarding blues, it being held that not to award them was unfair to the players, especially as the play was undoubtedly of a high standard.

Otago stated that as their executive did not approve of tournaments during wartime they were not allowed any travelling expenses. This attitude was deplored, it being pointed out that wartime or not the Governor-General apparently approved of such gatherings, as he had consented to be present.

It was decided that if possible future tournaments be held either in Christchurch or Wellington to avoid unnecessary travelling.

When two of the clubs complained that the grants made to them by their executives were inadequate, it was decided to pool information from all the centres so as to compare their relative positions before any action was taken.
