Shade Cloths Installation


Shade cloth - thank you

 

 

I had written him a letter which I had, for want of better

   Knowledge, sent to where I met him down the club, years ago,

He was bowling when I knew him, so I sent the letter to him,

   Just "on spec", addressed as follows: "Chris Beany, Greens and overflow".


And an answer came directed in a writing unexpected,

   (And I think the same was written in a thumbnail dipped in tar)

'Twas his bowling mate who wrote it, and verbatim I will quote it:

   "Chris should be do’en the shade cloth, and we don't know where he are."


And the hurrying people daunt me, and their pallid faces haunt me
  As they shoulder shade cloth in their rush and nervous haste,
With their eager eyes so seedy, and their stunted  forms and weedy,
   For bowlers have no time to grow, they have no time to waste.

 

In my wild erratic tizzy visions come to me of Chrissy

   Gone a-riding "down the Marmion" where all the cyclists go;

As the boys are slowly stinging, Beany laughs behind them singing,

   For the bowlers life has pleasures that others never know.


And the green have friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him

   In the murmur of the breezes and the making of the grade,

And he sees the vision splendid of those cloth arms far extended,

  And at days the wondrous glory of the everlasting shade.


And I somehow think though teeny I'd like to swap with Beany,

   Like to take a turn at bowling where the seasons just come and go,

While he faced the round eternal of the cashbook and the journal -

   But I doubt he'd suit the office, Beany, ‘cause he has a green to mow.

 

Chris would like to thank all members who came down today and assisted him putting the shade cloth up on all greens.

Changes to artificial devices policy (BOWLING ARMS)


 

BY AIDAN DAVIS (BOWLS AUSTRALIA)

Bowls Australia’s (BA) Board has signalled an impending change to the national Artificial Devices Policy, pertaining specifically to the use of bowlers arms.

 

The revised Artificial Devices Policy, which will come into effect from May 1, 2019, has removed the existing stipulation that players need to have received approval from the State/Territory Association to use a bowlers arm, and also removes the need for a medical certificate to use a bowlers arm.

 

The changes to the policy come after extensive consultation and feedback from key stakeholders.

It is envisaged that the leniency will result in greater opportunity for persons with physical restrictions and impairments to continue playing the sport, and is in line with the policies of other national bodies.

Further to the changes, Bowls Australia wishes to clarify the procedure to request replacement National Merchandising Program (NMP) logo stickers for approved bowlers’ arms.

In the event that an approved bowlers’ arm’s existing National Merchandising Program (NMP) logo sticker has come off due to wear and tear over time, Bowls Australia may be contacted to request a replacement sticker be posted out, to then affix to the arm.

Players will need to provide details of their arm (ideally a photo) so that BA can confirm that the device is indeed an approved bowlers arm, which can be done by post or email to admin@bowls.com.au.

 

Any queries relating to these changes to the policy can be raised with BA’s Tony Sherwill or Bronwyn White on 03 9480 7100 or admin@bowls.com.au.
