Procedure for applications:
The MNZ Office will advertise the Events and receive all applications.
- On receipt of the application ‘on the application form’, a confirmation will be sent to the club acknowledging the receipt of the application.
- On closing of the EOI, clubs will be advised a time frame for the Commission to do Due Diligence of the application.
This will vary depending on the number of applications received and the clubs that have applied.
- Clubs may be shortlisted, if multiple applications are received, with unsuccessful clubs advised.
- Clubs that have been successfully shortlisted, they will receive a copy of the Guidelines for consideration and we will further review the application.
The Commission will undertake further consultation, to allow it to select a Host Club.
- Successful and un-successful clubs will be notified
- The successful club, as part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), will have the guidelines incorporated within the contract.
- The successful club will also receive standard Supplementary Regulations to be incorporated as part of the entry form for the event.
It should be noted that if one expression of interest is received for an event, the commission will work with that club. However the Commission will only re-advertise the hosting of an event if the application is unable to proceed.
Our objective is to work with Clubs, especially those that have shown an interest in an Event, as our first priority.
Should an Event not have a host club application or MNZ is unable to award an event, only those events will be re-advertised in round two (5th January 2020- 20 February 2020)
The objective is to have all the upcoming years events allocated by the AGM and to be able to release the Host Club/ Event Calendar at the AGM for the upcoming year.

Notes for Events:
