MY LAST NEWSLETTER
This is the last newsletter that I will be producing for you, as I will be standing down as secretary
and editor at our AGM on Saturday and Joe Walters will be your new secretary and editor. I
produced the first newsletter in July 2012, the year of our 75th anniversary,
versary, and since then have
produced 58 newsletters.
In my 22 years of membership of the club I have served as Chairman, Green Director and Secretary
(twice). It is now time to stand down and let some of the newer members of the club take part in the
running
ning of the club. It is only by looking forward and adopting fresh ideas that the club can continue
to be a financially successful and vibrant club as part of the Maleny community in the 21st century.

Laws of the Sport of Bowls
Crystal Mark Third Edition
Section 1.2 – Getting a game underway
5 Starting the game
5.1 Trial ends
5.1.1 Before the start of play in any game, or before continuing an unfinished game on another
day, one trial end must be played in each direction.
5.1.2 For domestic play, the Controlling Body can limit the number of trial ends to be played
(no trial ends or one trial end in one direction). It can also decide whether the trial ends
are played immediately before or immediately after the scheduled start time for the
game.
5.1.3 Trial ends must be played on the same rink that the game will be played on.
5.1.4 Each player must not use more than the number of bowls being used during the game. If
a player or an umpire notices that a player is using more than the
permitted number of bowls, the defaulting player will lose the right to play any
bowls remaining to be played in the trial ends.
5.1.5 Each player can use any combination of bowls taken from different sets of bowls.
5.1.6 The opponents of the team which started the first trial end must start the second trial end.
5.1.7 The team which starts the trial end must place the mat, deliver the jack and place the
jack on the centre line of the rink at a distance they choose from the mat line (the
distance must not be changed during the course of the trial end).
5.1.8 When each bowl comes to rest, any player or the marker can remove it and place it
towards the front ditch.
5.1.9 If a bowl moves the jack, the jack must be put back to its former position.
5.2 Tossing for opening play
5.2.1 The coaches in a side game (or, in their absence, representatives of the sides), skips in a
team game or opponents in Singles must toss a coin.
5.2.2 The winner of the toss must choose whether to:
5.2.2.1
5.2.2.2
place the mat and then deliver the jack and the first bowl; or
tell the opposing player to place the mat and deliver the jack and the first
bowl (the opposing player cannot refuse).
5.2.3 The option chosen by the coach or representative who wins the toss in a side
game will apply to all teams or Singles players (or a combination of teams and
Singles players) who make up the side.
5.2.4 If the coin is tossed before the start of the trial ends, the option the winner of the toss
chooses will apply to both the first trial end and the first end of the game.

5.3 The start of play
5.3.1 In any game, the start of play is the delivery of the jack by the first player to play in the
first end.
5.3.2 In any end, the start of play is the delivery of the jack by the first player to play in that
end.
5.4
Play in other ends
In all ends after the first but apart from in an extra end, the winner of the previous scoring
end must place the mat and then deliver the jack and the first bowl.
6
Placing the mat
6.1
At the start of each end
6.1.1 Before the start of play in each end, the player to play first must place the centre line of
the mat lengthwise along the centre line of the rink, with the mat line at least 2 metres
from the rear ditch and at least 25 metres from the front ditch.
6.1.2 If, before the jack has been delivered, a player or the marker finds that the mat has not
been placed as described in law 6.1.1, the player to play first must correctly position the
mat.
6.1.3 If, after the jack has been delivered but before the first bowl is delivered, a player or the
marker finds that the mat line has not been positioned within the distances described in
law 6.1.1, the opposing player must place the mat as described in law6.1.1and re-deliver
the jack, making sure that it is centred, but the opposing player must not play first.
6.1.4 After the first player to play has delivered the first bowl, no-one has the right to
challenge the legality of the original distance of the mat line from the rear and
front ditches.
6.1.5 If one or more groundsheets are to be used (outdoor play only), the following will apply:
6.1.5.
The Controlling Body must consult the nominated greenkeeper before
deciding where the groundsheets will be placed. The position must be in line with
definition C.12.
6.1.5.2
6.1.5.3
6.1.5.4
6.1.5.5
6.1.5.6
The Controlling Body can make the decision to use groundsheets either
before the start of play or at any time during play.
The groundsheets must be securely fastened to the surface of the green
using flat-headed pins (or an equivalent) that do not stick up from the
surface.
The groundsheets must stay in the same position until the end of the game
or until the Controlling Body decides that they are no longer needed.
The mat line must be placed on the rear edge of the groundsheet.
For domestic play, Member National Authorities can decide the
requirements for using portable groundsheets as an alternative to thefixed
groundsheets mentioned in this law.
“Definition C.12Groundsheet:a rectangular piece of canvas or other suitable fabric
placed temporarily on the surface of the green to protect it from any damage caused as a
result of a player delivering the jack or a bowl. The rear edge of the groundsheet must be

8 Bunya Street, Maleny, 4552
www.malenybowlsclub.com.au
placed at least 2 metres from the rear ditch and at least 25 metres from the front ditch (in
line with the requirements for placing the mat described in laws 6.1.1 and 6.1.5).”
6.2
During each end
After the start of play in any end, the mat must not be moved from its original position
except in the following circumstances.
6.2.1 If the mat is displaced, it must be replaced in its original position.
6.2.2 If the mat is out of line with the centre line, it must be straightened on that line.
6.2.3 If the mat is off the centre line, it must be moved to that line.
6.2.4 If a player picks up the mat before the end has been completed, an opposing
player must replace the mat in its original position.
6.2.5 If a bowl from a neighbouring rink, moving in its original course and on a bias
which will take it back into its own rink, is travelling on a path which will bring it
into contact with the mat, any player on the rink on which the mat is being used can lift it
so that the bowl can pass and then replace the mat in its original position.
6.2.6 To gain better grip during adverse weather conditions a player can, before
delivering their bowl, lift the mat, turn it over and replace it in its original
position.
6.2.7 After the last bowl required to be played in each end has been delivered, a player or the
marker must lift the mat and place it completely beyond the face of the rear bank.
Opponents in Singles can, however, agree to carry the mat up the rink so that they can
use it at the next end.
7
Position on the mat
7.1
Before delivery a player must be standing on the mat with all or part of at least
one foot on the mat. At the moment they deliver the jack or a bowl, the player
must have all or part of one foot on or above the mat.
7.2
Before delivery a player using an approved wheelchair must have one wheel onthe mat
and, at the moment they deliver the jack or a bowl, the player must haveall or part of one
wheel on or above the mat.
7.3
Any player not meeting the terms of this law is committing a foot-fault, and law 8will
apply.
8
Foot-faulting
8.1
If the umpire, either by their own observation or on appeal by one of the skips or
opponents in Singles, decides that a player has not met the terms of law 7, the umpire
must, on the first occasion, warn the player in the presence of the skip and advise the
coach when they are present that a warning has been given.
8.2
On each occasion after this, the umpire must have the player’s bowl stopped and
declared dead.
8.3
If it has not been possible to stop the bowl and it disturbs the head, the opponent must
choose whether to:

www.malenybowlsclub.com.au
8.3.1 replace the head;
8.3.2 leave the head as altered; or
8.3.3 declare the end dead.
8.4
If a player has been given a warning and still fails to meet the terms of law 7
while delivering the jack, law 10.2 will apply.
Law 10.2
“If a player improperly delivers the jack, the opposing player must place the
mat as described in law 6.1.1 and re-deliver the jack, making sure that it is
centred, but the opposing player must not play first”
Lawn Bowls Etiquette
Bowl… don’t drop!
Bowling greens are delicate arenas, and it’s easy to cause damage by throwing or dropping a
bowl. Different players have different delivery styles, but it’s polite to make sure your technique
isn’t damaging the green or causing scuff marks. If it is, try and bowl more gently. And it goes
without saying that you should never pick up and drop bowls out of laziness… pick up and put
down, or kick them along with your feet.
If you are having difficulty delivering your bowls without dropping them you should
consider using a bowling arm. This will not only reduce damage to the green but may
help improve your bowing delivery.
Avoid walking on to adjacent rinks.
Bowls clubs usually arrange their rinks in parallel, which means there may well be people
playing an entirely separate game next to you. Be aware of where the neighbouring rinks are,
and avoid walking on them when you make your way to the jack, the clubhouse, or when
walking from one side of the green to the other.
Booking in for a Game
If you are interested in playing in club or away games you need to put your name
down on the relevant nomination sheets that are available at the club.
Also remember that if you do have your name down to play and for some reason, are
unable to make it to the game or if you want to play and don’t have your name down,
it is common courtesy to let the Games Director know.
The best way to do this is to remove your name from the nomination sheet or phone
the club and leave a message before the time stated on the nomination sheet. As an
example, if the nomination sheet has 02:30 for 03:00, you should have your name
removed or leave a message before 02:30.
And lastly… shake hands!
It shouldn’t really need mentioning, but sometimes after a bitter defeat there’s a strong urge to
just exit the green as soon as possible. Do remember to shake hands with your opponent(s)
though – you’ll be glad you held yourself to that benchmark of sportsmanship when you look
back.
