This relates to the Data Sharing Agreements, which Existing and New Members have been required to complete. These were on the reverse of the Membership Forms for 2018 . This system will continue for each annual renewal, to ensure that we hold the correct contact details for each of you. If any of your personal details change during the course of the year, please inform firstname.lastname@example.org so that club and CA records can be kept up-to-date. Handicap changes are normally notified to the club and the CA as part of the Competition / Tournament reporting system. As Members of the CA you can view your details by going to the CA’s website using the following link:
Some of you will already have received copies of the Croquet Gazette. A few of you will have had e-mail’s from the CA concerning handicap changes, these have now been dealt with. They arose from a review of GC handicaps undertaken by the Club Chairman, and in a couple of cases from participation in CA Tournaments (AC) & (GC).

The CA Membership Database as at 28/02/2018
As of the CA’s deadline of 28/02/2018, 57 Members had renewed their Membership of the Hunstanton Croquet Club and their details have been passed to the CA, so that they might receive personal copies of The CA Gazette in April 2018. I should be grateful if any Members who wish to renew their Membership would do so before 31/03/2018.
The following message was received from the CA
“Further to your work uploading your club’s data to the CA website, I can now inform you that it has all been processed and imported into the CA Membership database. It will take about one working day for the changes to cycle through so that your members can log into the website and access the directory and enter tournaments online. You might like to inform them when this has happened, and point them to the welcome page https://www.croquet.org.uk/?p=members/WelcomeNewMembers
Please note that directory access specific to fellow club members is a feature that is not yet available, so if one or more of your members has said they wish to be visible to club members but not the wider CA membership, then for the moment their details will not be available to fellow club members. We hope to implement this feature in the coming months.
If you need to amend or add to the details you have provided, don’t forget you can upload a replacement file at any time, and this will supersede the information you have currently provided.
Many thanks for your help with this process.
