The 2013 joint Ordinary General Assembly of EPPA/FIPPA was held on Friday, April 5th in the Hotel Flamingo, L'Ampolla (Tarragona).
Membership applications from the Basque Association and South France Association were unanimously approved.
The secretariat has exchanged correspondence with two new courses in Mexico and in Ecuador and encouraged them to form associations with other similar courses in their countries. Both are fully informed as to the FIPPA regulations and membership criteria.
For the World Strokeplay Championship, a competition committee of Myles McMorrow, Victor Rodriguez and Joep van Mourik has been appointed, to be coordinated by the secretary. This committee will oversee the distribution of vacant places among associations, which have requested extra places beyond the original allocation and, if necessary, based on the current European ranking system. With the championship hotel located in the city of Santiago, a bus shuttle service will be in place for transfers to and from the course.
