The results of the first Advanced PDI competition have been posted in the latest newsletter. The first PDI competition for Club and Intermediate members will be held on 25th October and the first print competition for the same groups will be held on 22nd November. Deadlines will be with us very shortly so it might be helpful to summarise the changes to the opportunities for progression from Club to Intermediate, agreed at the AGM earlier this year.
The particular matter for discussion at the AGM was to consider the position for those Members who have been in Club Class for some time already and any newer Members joining the Club who do not achieve promotion for some time. It was agreed that:
Existing members who have been in Club Class for 3 years or more and who wish to progress to the Intermediate Class will have the option of self-referral to Intermediate providing they have entered the main Club competitions during the previous year, irrespective of the marks obtained.
New Members placed in Club Class who have not been promoted after three years may also self refer to Intermediate, as long as they have taken part in competitions during those three years, irrespective of the marks obtained.
The alternative approach is to do very well in the Club class league tables for that year and gain promotion thorough that route
