Another round of Barooga bowls

By Liam Nash

Answer to last week's question: “If in a pennant game there is a absent player after 30 minutes has elapsed and there is no substitute available, what happens?”

Answer: A team with an absent player plays as though the second is the missing player. The order of play shall be maintained by the second of the complete team playing consecutive bowls. Usual number of bowls are played by both sides.

This week's question: If during the course of play the jack or bowl at rest is altered by the wind, storm or any other unforseen incident what happens?

The draw for the B grade singles has been done.

The draw is as follows: J Slater bye, M Whelan v K Newton, G Bennett v G Ashcroft, P Linquist v J Canning.

The envelopes and score cards are on the wall with the draw. Good luck to these bowlers First day is Sunday, November 3, at 9.30 am.

Saturday pennant had three wins and midweek pennant one win and one loss.

Divisions one, three and four won on Saturday and division one won on Friday. Most scores are on the Murray Bowls website.

Murray Bowls apologised for the non appearance of some scores but there was a problem with the set up, which has been rectified, but with Allan Clarke being unwell it has not been possible to put in the earlier scores just yet, but would be updated as soon as possible.

Barooga's team app just refers to the Murray Bowls website, so that is why scores do not appear there at the moment for all grades.

Share the wealth is on again on November 12 and more teams would be appreciated so if you can, please put your name down.
