The MWSS Rules


Rules, Competitons and Generally
what we are about

MWSS Management

Rule 1: Brett Turner the current El Presidente (El Prez) is always right.

Rule 2: If you want to be El Prez, you but have to ask, a vote can be called if the standing El Prez requests it, but he will probably just give you the job.


Rule 3; To become a member, you have to be invited by a standing member of MWSS. If for any reason any other member objects, it will be ruled on by the El Prez.  Members are defined as:
"Active" gets personal invites to games,.
"Appraising" basically a newby, play 3 games and you are up for "Active " status, no invites are sent
"Benched" We haven't seen you for around 2 years, you can become active by just playing a game, no invites are sent.
For more details go to "Members Categories" tab

Rule 4: Rites to play: Basically, the more MWSS games you have played, the more rite you have to play. So, it is last on, first off, if numbers exceed tee times.

Rule 5: For full playing rights you must be a NZGA registered member, with handicap, not pending.

Rule 6 Nonregistered~ ~ the player can be set a handicap by the El Prez after consulting with the players and friends. He will pay a full player Tax per time he plays but is only eligible for the Silverware, not the $$$ with the exception of Glug's Mug where handicap has no effect.

Rule 7: If you have not played a MWSS event in the past 2 years you will be BENCHED, meaning you will be taken off the invite list, but remain a member until you play another MWSS game and then are reinstated as a PLAYING member.

Rule 8: Under a true dictatorship, membership is but a word, the masses have nothing but the belief that The El Prez has their back. Disclosure will rely on how he is feeling on the day.

In the unlikely event of a dispute...see rule 1.

Playing taxation

Rule 9: There is a compulsory Haggle for those competing for the MWSS Trophy costing $20 (June 2011) per player per event.

Rule 10: There is a $10 per person charge that goes to the Order of Merit Seasonal competition

Rule 11: The last holder of the snake (over 2 putts) in each group, at the end of the round shall pay the holder of Glug's Mug $10.

Rule 12: Touring teams" cannot utilise "MWSS" funs, prize money or accumulated fine moneys, all funds must be self-generating on tour and be spent on tour. If not spent, it will be absorbed into the El Prez drinking fund

Rule 13: The El Prez can call a court session without notice at any time to balance the books. The Fines Master designated is all powerful for the time of the court session, cross him at you Peral

Whiskeys- please ensure that these are recorded in your 4 balls, although some of us prefer Rumbos.

MWSS Blazer Ruling:

On reaching the 50 game threshold, you become a Ďblazerí member of MWSS. Donít get excited, you must, 2 weeks prior to your 50th game, provide a blazer of your choosing (Op shops are good value), of any colour, any style, that fits. This will then get the famously stylish MWSS Logo to be embroidered on the breast. This will then be presented to you after your 50th game, and you will be fined for all costs incurred by MWSS.

Wearing of said Blazer:

The BlazerCAN be worn as of right at all Weddings, funerals, All Black reunions, roof shouts or any other auspicious social occasions where you just want to make a statement.

The Blazer MUST be warn at all MWSS Majorís after matches, Masters Monday and Pro Am, plus when another member is invested into the 50 game blazer club, to the centurion club or any other auspicious level of MWSS bullshit. Also required on MWSS Tours, and it can of course be warn at every MWSS event if you just want to look good.

The only other official Blazers: that can be warn of right, are the Green and the Black Blazers, no matter how many games played by the annual winners. All above functions they can also be proudly warn.
