Item 5.3: A player’s foot must be placed on the footer (or “mat” as we know it) when delivering either the jack or a bowl. A player placing the right foot on the footer must play the jack and bowls with the right hand, and a player placing the left foot on the footer must play jack and bowls with the left hand. Nothing in this Law shall apply to any player who suffers a permanent disability of a limb.
Item 5.4: A player must bowl with the same hand throughout the game. Where disability or infirmity prevent a player from delivering jacks or bowls directly from hand than a mechanical aid, of a type approved by the Association, may be used to provide assistance.
Item 5.5: Any bowl not played in accordance with Laws 5.3 and 5.4 may be stopped by the Referee and returned to be played again. If a player offends again during the course of the game, the bowl wrongly played shall be forfeited.
Gwyn set up, and ran for many years, the original website for the Club. He put a lot of love and hard work into it plus he built up a huge stock of photographs taken by him and other members of the club. This has left a rich history which we hope to continue long into the future with the newly structured website. We will always be very grateful to Gwyn for laying the path of the Vardre Deganwy Crown Green Bowling Club into the mysterious World Wide Web where even our cousins on the other side of the world can see what we’re doing.
The basis for the website will always remain the same: we all want to have fun and to enjoy playing bowls and aim to reflect this in our website pages. Thank you Gwyn for all your help and support. Together we will continue what you started.
John Cartwright, the Captain of Clwydian ‘A’ Team, says: “I am very pleased with the team’s win on Tuesday. Well done to everyone. You all always play your best for the team. A very high-scoring match. Thank you all.”
“Item 3.4: The result of the end shall be clearly indicated by the winner, to the two markers, except at competitions at which an official marker for each game has been appointed and official scoreboards are in use. Where there are two markers they must sit together and agree each other’s score cards every third end and at the end of the game. Where the score cannot be agreed by the markers or players, it shall revert to the end where both score cards show the score to be in agreement.”
