Dear Hockey Friends,

my time as president of WGMA over a period of 12 years, and the earlier formative years devoted to setting up the WGMA organisation brought me a great deal of pleasure, commencing at a time when I thought that at the ripe age of 60, my hockey 'career' was over! 15 years on, I can look back in satisfaction in seeing how far the Grand Masters hockey movement has developed.

Problem during security update
Web Manager

The site had some unexpected downtime on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, for which I would like to apologise.

I was trying to update some Drupal modules, for which new releases (some security-related) were available, and managed to delete some important files in the process, with the result that the site no longer worked.

I believe that the problem has been fixed, but if you notice anything untoward please let me know.

The moral of the story is: "don't try to do website maintenance from a campervan 350 km north of Newcastle NSW".

Some bugs squashed...
Web Manager

Because of a design mistake in the initial version of this website it has not been easy to update tournament statistics after the tournament has finished. This problem has now been fixed, along with some other minor layout issues.

The History

Two organisations currently exist which have responsibility for Masters and Grand Masters hockey respectively :

Masters Hockey can play an important role in future wellbeing of the game through encouraging older players to continue playing and therefore being active members of their clubs and, in many cases, other hockey organisations.

By providing enjoyment in hockey for players over 40 years of age, Masters hockey is retaining in the game a pool of men and women who can bring a number of benefits to the game
