League format discussed at August Executive Meeting

posted 12 Aug 2018, 11:06 by Graham Duck

Input from President (John Barber):

Despite this season's excellent weather conditions, there has been a notable increase in failures to field a full team.  
By early August*, 21 rinks had been conceded in the Mid-Week Pairs but only 3 in the Friday Fours.

These proposals, to help rectify this situation, apply only to the Mid-Week Pairs:-
1.  To amend the 4 Pairs (8 players) format to a 2 Pairs & 1 Triples (7  players) format.
2.  To permit any player from a lower league to substitute for a player in a higher league.
3.  To permit any player from the Friday Fours (not registered in the Mid-Week Pairs) to substitute for a Mid-Week Pairs player.
4.  To notify, in advance, any proposed failure to field a rink to the opposing team.

These are entirely separate proposals for consideration, at the September meeting, for submission to the A.G.M. and any additional suggestions are welcomed.

*League Secretary will be able to update these figures at the meeting.

2018 Leagues - Drax D drop out!

posted 30 May 2018, 02:09 by Graham Duck   [ updated 15 Jul 2018, 12:11 ]

Please note that I have been informed that:

Drax D have withdrawn from Friday Fours Division E.

previously we had lost...
Jemmy Hirst have withdrawn from Friday Fours Division B
West Park C have withdrawn from Friday Fours Division E.

In Division E with Drax D withdrawing, at this late stage the only change shall be that in the last week of the season Howden (home) will now play Pollington C, not Hemingbrough as in the book.  This will ensure that all teams play 13 matches.  (Unfortunately not all teams play the same no of home and away, but there is nothing much more that I can do at this late stage.

Encouraging Young Bowlers

posted 18 Jun 2017, 13:02 by Graham Duck   [ updated 13 Aug 2017, 12:58 ]

Many of you will be wondering how we have been spending the £1000 donation towards encouraging new young bowlers to the sport.  So far we have made the following purchases of equipment for use by any of the bowls clubs in the Goole and District Bowling Association to use in encouraging young bowlers into the sport.  So far £386.79 + £350.34 = £737.13 has been spent.  An order with Eleven is awaiting completion.  We will be looking for everyone's support in making good use of the new equipment.  The bowlsparc equipment has now arrived from Eleven.
