Item 1 Confirmation of Last Meeting Minutes
Meeting agreed that in case of urgent problem, this meeting could be called with 7 days notice.
Item 2 Matters Arising
Refer to Item 2.1, Mr. Yuen Tung Nam of SOC said that OAHK did not response to his letter on conversion of his gained points from H21 to H35 in Colour-coded Ranking 1999/2000, but instead OAHK asked his club to nominate him to compete in Champions League Events 2000/2001. After lengthy discussion, TS said that his ranking class was based on what he completed in the entry form, i.e. H21 and the score could not be converted to H35.
Item 3 Champions League Events
They could exempt for one year only.
They could join the Champions League Events 2001/2002 again, but it should depend on the number of runners in the class they wished to join and priority would be given to those who could retain in League and those who could promoted from Colour-coded Ranking.
They should write to OAHK before the commencement of competition season in 2001/2002 if they wished to join Champions League Events again.
Meeting rejected the request from Ms. Wong Kin Yee on joining Colour-coded Events for gaining ranking scores to be promoted to Champions League Events.
TS reported that OAHK received an e-mail from Mr. Au Man Bun of HKOC on requesting to join Champions League Events 2000/2001. The meeting rejected his request since the deadline for nomination was already passed.
Item 4 Registration of Events Officials
TS reported that the event report for Night OL Event held on 6 May 2000 was received and the report was circulated at the meeting. Meeting endorsed the registration of event officials for this event.
TS tabled a list of event officials that were eligible for re-registration since they had taken up events in 1999/2000. Meeting agreed that the registration of event officials would be endorsed annually and the registration could be valid for three years. For example if an organiser took up a event in 1999/2000, his registration would be endorsed in TC and could be valid in 2000/2001, 2001/2002 and 2002/2003. The certificate for registered event officials would be presented annually. OAHK would prepare a list of registered event official which include the year when registered and year of valid.
The meeting also agreed that the registered event officials should be aged 18 or above and each map could register a maximum of 4 mappers.
Clubs could submit a supplementary list of registered event officials to OAHK one week before next TC meeting (i.e. before 27 November 2000).
Item 5 Any Other Business
TS reminded that Champions League runners should submit OAHK membership form as soon as possible.
TS reminded that Champions League runners need not complete the "Age Class" in Colour-coded entry form. Meeting also agreed that it should state clearly at the entry form that only "H/D21B" were non-ranking classes.
TS had tabled a document on the decisions made at the Technical Committee Meeting on Competition System for the year 1999/2000. The H/D21 course in Champions League Events would be added at the course combination of H/D35 class and H/DE course should be longer. TS reminded clubs to inform their members about the decisions made at TC Meeting.
TS also tabled the winning time of Champions League Events and Colour-coded Events in 1999/2000. It could serve as a reference for the course setting this year.
The organising clubs of Colour-coded Events No. 1, No.2 and the Champions League Event No. 1 would be invited to attend the next TC meeting.
