Low Petanque turnout

PNZ received 20 replies to their request for selection process feedback from the NZ Petanque membership (some are published here). Considering we have 60 players on the national selection list and at least 1200 affiliated members this is a disappointing result. It can't be easy for PNZ to formulate policies and get it right, if people are not showing any interest. It's no good moaning if we are not prepared to provide input. Twenty replies with 6 of these from players not on the selection list. This leaves only 14 replies from the 60 players that had put their name forward for selection. PNZ no doubt will be looking for some kind of mandate to make changes, but with only 20 replies this is going to be difficult.
