The Annual General Meeting on March 18th confirmed Helen Milligan as President of ACA, with John McRae as Vice-President, Daniel Johns as Secretary, and Tingling Wei as Treasurer.

are available here (as pdf downloads):
Dates of Interclub matches were set and can be found on our Calendar page. Pairings are also available.
At our first meeting of 2018 we observed a minute's silence for our departed friend and colleague, then had the sad duty of nominating someone to take over his position of President of ACA until the AGM in March.
As a fitting memorial to his long and dedicated service, we agreed to name the A-Grade Interclub trophy after him - it will henceforth be the Peter Stuart Memorial Trophy.
A Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Peter Stuart will be held at the Chapel of Forrest Funeral Services, 8 Glen Road, Browns Bay on Monday 19th February 2018 at 11 am. Everyone is welcome.
