CARE OF GREENS
The first priority of any Bowling Club must be the maintenance of its Greens to the highest possible standard and it is to this end that the Green keeper and the Greens Superintendent direct their efforts both during the recess period and throughout the playing season. There are a number of ways in which wear and damage to the Greens can be minimized and members are asked to take note of and make every effort to implement the procedures set out below.
Players with a bad delivery DUMPERS cause considerable and frequent damage, especially at the beginning of the season when the Greens are soft. If your delivery is not good ask one or more of our Club coaches for assistance in improving it.
It is only when Scrims are being used that the mat must be laid on the 2 metre mark. Skips and Threes will greatly assist in preventing excessive wear at the ends of the rinks if they make sure their Leads regularly vary the mat position.
DON’T LEAVE BOWLS ON THE GREEN
Bowls left lying on the Green during breaks in play morning tea, lunch or between games can cause burning. Place them on the bank or in the ditch.
Entries for all competitions must be made on the envelope provided with the entry fee of $5 per player included. Envelopes are to be placed in the box provided in the clubhouse not later than 5.00pm on the date stated in the programme. All competitors must be prepared to play as indicated in the printed programme or as specified by the Match Committee. Failure to appear at such time or dates will disqualify competitors for that round or rounds. Commencement times of matches are shown in the programme. Players should be in attendance 15 minutes prior to play. Any player more than 15 minutes late may be disqualified. As players are eliminated in any single event they will be required to mark in the following round, even if the next round is on the next playing day.
