We have a number of green and white hats for sale at $15 each. We also have a few Parksville Lawn Bowling pins left .. we will not be ordering more … Please see Chuck Benson for the pins .. cost $1.00 each.

 

Tenderfoot Tournament

Novices!!! Our tenderfoot tournament on July 15 and 16, 2023 is in desperate need of some novices to join a team. It’s just like bowling at the club in a draw except if you place you can win some remuneration. There is a notice on the board to sign up.

Revisions to the latest Laws of the Sport

World Bowls has recently rescinded two of the new laws that had come into effect in Canada just this spring. They are Laws 37.1.3 and 37.1.5.3.

The laws were introduced to combat cheating. If a player either stopped one of their own bowls or lifted another bowl to clear its path, that team would immediately forfeit the game. The circumstances might be stopping your team’s last bowl that was likely to disturb the head and take away shots you were holding, or to lift another bowl to clear a route to the head where you could improve your team’s situation in the head. Believe it or not, it seems these things happened somewhere.

Somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere, where the new laws came in last fall, the new laws have been applied to punish those that innocently stop one of their team’s bowls heading directly to the ditch, with a forfeit of the game. (Who hasn’t intercepted a bowl before it hits the ditch?). The laws were not created for this situation, but are loose enough to be interpreted that way.

So when you get your new Laws book, strike out Laws 37.1.3 and 37.1.5.3.

Here is a link to the article on the World Bowls site that explains the situation in more detail. https://www.worldbowls.com/laws-umpiring/wb-law-decisions-2-2/#May%202023
