Barooga Bowls notes

By Cobram Courier

Last week's question: For domestic play what are requirements for stamps on bowls (Law 53.5)

Answer: For events where Bowls Australia is the controlling body, all bowls must carry the stamp of the current or future calendar year in which the event takes place. For domestic events no stamp requirements are required unless specified in the conditions of play for that event.

This week's question? Does the marker have to ensure the jack is rolled the correct length?

In pennant last week, Friday pennant had great wins in divisions ones and two.In Saturday pennant, the fours had a bye. Division three had a good win against Tocumwal Golf, however divisions one and two lost, but still remain within the four. The next round now starts, so players need to knuckle down and attend training and practice all shots.

Bowls is on up to December 21, so let's make sure we win the next three games and go into the break secure in the knowledge we will all be playing finals this season.

The men's pairs final was played during the week and the winners were Ray Emerson and Gerald Rothe who defeated Bob Adams and Peter Velardo, 17-12.
