Following the Information Meeting held at the club on the morning of Saturday 7 December 2019, the Rotation Policy has been suspended for a trial period.  In its place some bowlers will be selected as Reserves.  This is to help consolidate some sides.  Comments made by some members regarding strengthening teams have been taken on board and it is hoped that this, together with bowlers engaging in further practice and training, will raise the standard of all sides.  Bowlers are reminded that training sessions are held at the club on Tuesday and Friday commencing at 1.00 pm. Additionally the club greens are available to all financial members 24 / 7.  For those who are unaware, a key to access the greens may be obtained from the Club Secretary for a deposit of $10. This will be refunded when the key is handed back.  All Pennant Bowlers are encouraged to attend the club and participate in the practice sessions.  It remains the club’s objective to enable members to play at least one pennant game per week wherever possible. Your understanding is appreciated and any inconvenience caused is regretted.Image result for lawn bowls dumping rules

Also, members are reminded of the club’s policy regarding “dumping”.  A major risk comes from bowls that are dropped from the bank or “dumped” during delivery from a height that has the potential to damage the green.  Bowlers having difficulty delivering their bowls smoothly from a height of less then 15 cm (6 inches) are urged to seek assistance from one of the club coaches.

Our greens are the Clubs most valuable asset and need to be protected from any damage. A major risk comes from bowls that are dropped from the bank or dumped during delivery from a height that has the potential to dent the green’s surface.  Please become familiar with the Elimination of Dumping and Dropping Bowls Policy which can be viewed on the Club News Page.
