There will not be a mid-game break so make sure to bring some snacks and drink plenty of water. Nibbles will be available after the game for which the home team will pay as usual.

The Metropolitan Bowls Association has released an updated version of the Pennant Conditions of Play for the 2017 – 2018 Pennant Season.
Rule 3.12.4 states that players may practice on any rink of the green of play prior to the draw of rinks for the game. Once the draw for rinks has been made practice must cease. The wording of the last sentence, using the term announcement of rinks, has been changed to remove any confusion. It now says that ‘Once the draw for rinks has been made players should be notified and practice ceases.’ Also, Appendix D, attached to the Conditions of Play, which gives a summary of all pennant times has been amended to remove any confusion.
The latest version of the Conditions Of Play can be viewed here.

The Metropolitan Bowls Association (MBA) President’s Update Number 9 is attached here for the information of members. Please note item number 4 which states;
“Three Year Plan. To avoid ad hoc decisions being made annually, we are seeking to draw up a plan for the development of Metro Bowls. All clubs are asked to consider the future, consult with their members and be prepared to bring their ideas in mid- January to our next meeting. Plenty of notice!”
Should members have any ideas that they feel may improve the conditions of play or any other aspect of our game, please could you submit your idea/s to Les Cohen, Chairman of the Bowls Committee, in sufficient time for your ideas to be considered and taken to the MBA meeting in mid-January 2018.
