To further clarify the APA’s October 29, 2016, E-News regarding the D-grade results at the 2016 Nationals Tournament, the Board does not claim that Sandie Creek or its players intentionally or willfully violated the stated requirements, nor was its purpose to imply as such. The E-News listed at length the reasons that the Board and Tournament Committee had considered in determining that there had been a rule violation. This event has prompted the Board this month to make clarifying adjustments to the APA Standards of Play, Tournament Requirements and By-Laws to prevent future misinterpretation. The players and members of Sandie Creek have been and continue to be in good standing with the APA.
