Then when play is in Summerside, Summerside will furnish the extra or third rink. When play is in Charlottetown, Charlottetown will furnish the third rink. Should both Alberton and Montague be in the position of entering only one rink each, then, Summerside and Charlottetown will send three rinks each. Under this system the full compliment of eight entries should be assured.

In T.A. Campbell's motion it was also decided that: Each member club must notify the Association Secretary or a member of the Games Committee the number of rinks it is the intention of the member club to have entered in the Provincial Play Downs.

The Filling of Vacancies on the Executive of the Confederation Bonspiel

A telegram from the Hon. T.A. Campbell from Ottawa advised the meeting that owing to duties which took him outside the province, Thane would not be in a position to carry on the duties of Chairman of the Bonspiel General Executive Committee. Everyone present felt that the loss of our General Chairman was going to hit the bonspiel hard and the general opinion was that it would be extremely difficult to carry our bonspiel through to success without Thane's guidance in addition to numerous duties which he shouldered. The fact that Thane has promised his assistance during any length of time he may spend in the province will somewhat ease the situation.

After a lot of discussion, joined in by Dr. W. MacDonald, W.R. MacNeill, E.F. Acorn, H.R. Carruthers, Art Sullivan, Herb Matthews and others. The following members were formed into a committee. This committee was to act as a nominating committee and were authorized to fill vacancies on the bonspiel executive with the best man they could get for the various duties.
