23 August: WCF postpones next Womens GC Worlds. This event has been scheduled for March 2014, and as you will recall we recently started the entry process by asking Members to say whether they wanted one or more places.  Clearly, the situation in Egypt has taken a turn for the worse in the past week, so we have agreed with the Egyptian Croquet Federation to defer this event until November 2014.  This means we will take stock of the situation in Egypt in February 2014, and then confirm to you the dates and arrangements for this event. from WCF Secretary-General Martin French
