Greg Brown- Gary Fettes

As a guide to marking the player performance sheet each week …and your own practice

To check your performance in a game or at practice count your GOOD and POOR bowls.

Lead – 19 out of 42 within a mat

Second  & Third – 19 out of 42 as asked for by skip

Skip – at least 5 conversions – if down at cross over, try to reduce the count, be in the head or obtain SHOT. Also add to or protect a winning head as needed

Division One standard – so this the HIGH BAR

GOOD BOWLS = >45% OK BOWLS = >30% POOR BOWLS = <25%  
2×21 ends (42 bowls) Draw Shot Scoring Guide  Weighted shots
GOOD BOWLS 45%. = 19 shots G =  < 1 mat from target spot G = hit target or just miss
OK BOWLS       30% = 13 shots O = 1 -2 mats from target spot O = OK = miss by < ½ mat
POOR BOWLS 25% = 10 shots P = > 2 mats from target spot P = miss by > ½ mat

Christmas Dinner 10 December 6.30 for 7pm (Ian’s Catering- conformed plus Daniel’s Jazz) – a great night

Pennant – from the Umpires Chairman UPDATE – FURTHER  advice means that the WORDING of *‘CAN’ did not imply MUST

Latest update a number of changes to the 2017-18 COPs

                                     please take note and these are to be applied for this season

     (a) the finishing time on Saturdays for an interrupted match is now 6.00pm not 6.30pm

     (b) In the 19 Instantaneous Penalties 19.1 was removed due to differences to BA policy. 

As a result the penalties for

  1. Smoking           17. Personal Devices 8. Consumption of Alcohol 

are now more severe than previously

The first offence can still be a warning, but it *can result in an 8 shot penalty for Pennant

Gary brings much experience and game knowledge that we need to make use of so we can gain the promotions for our teams. If you wish to have coaching please be sure to contact Gary. As coach Gary will be the main selector for the number 1 Saturday side, the other sectors Alan, Chris, Gary F will concentrate on the second and third sides.

It will only be for approximately 2 or so hours from 5.30 – 7.30 at the most. This will assist to relieve the pressures and assist those of us that are working for the club.

Monday Social Bowls

CHADSTONE BOWLS Monday SOCIAL  – Update

Chas, a novice, was certainly in the PINK Monday 5 June 2017!

He managed his 3 bowls on the Jack for the 1st two ends and continued to star all day – moving the Jack to within 20cm of the jack on a subsequent end.

AJ (green bowl) then also moved the jack to  about 10cm from the ditch. The opposition didn’t seem to have the skill on the day, with GT nearly in the money when he rolled the jack and his bowl into the ditch – BUT NO JOY as although nearly a RESTING TOUCHER – they will all need to try harder next time!

This team did win 3 shots up on this end and wiped the floor 25 shots up over 11 ends

Chadstone Classic Day 2017

24 teams played 2 games on the last day of March.

This event has been played for over 35years, traditionally a Women’s event the criteria under Equal Opportunity, now is for a Woman skip and it was worth noting that an all WOMEN’S Team from Ashburton skipped by Liz Kortum were the overall winners on the day.

Audrey Nelson (Murrumbeena) and Liz Kortum’s team both won 12 of the 28 ends played by each team, by a single shot and 7 teams won both games.   Of the 336 ends played on the day 164 ones, 46 threes, 22 fours, 15 fives and just 1 six were achieved.

These events are not possible without the great VOLUNTEERING ethic of the LAWN BOWLS community from green preparation, bar staff and the mighty efforts of the members who provide the catering on the day.  

 

The bowlers playing were non- employed, no appointments, childminding or caring responsibilities on that particular Friday, 

there were 24 women skips, and more women than men playing on the day
