The Conditions of Play and Tournament Format documents for 2016 have been approved by the board and uploaded to the website under “About Lawn Bowls”…and in the last section “Policies & Procedures”. There are some notable changes to the formats for tournaments with entries of 4, 7, or 8 teams and for entries over 12 teams. Also the number of ends to be played for the Major’s playdowns have been reduced from 18 to 16 for Fours, Pairs, and Mixed Pairs and from 16 to 14 for Triples. All significant changes are marked with a “new” symbol.
Also updated posters have been put up for the Majors events and for Senior Triples. And a poster has been prepared and posted for the Singles event to be held the long weekend of August. The posters are found under “Events”, the first selection, “Provincial Events”.
