VETERANS LEAGUE – AWARDING OF POINTS

In light of ongoing problems with some hosting clubs not notifying the league sec of the result of their fixture. The committee recognises that this failure was adversely effecting the away team unfairly as both teams were being penalised with neither being awarded any points, the away team through no fault of their own.
The committee have discussed the best way forward and reviewed the awarding of points in these circumstances.
Regardless of the score on the day, if the sec is not updated with the result, then the away team will be awarded 6 points and 10 shots.
The offending home team will have 2pts and 10 shots deducted.
Points and shots will in the interest of fairness be added and deducted retrospectively in these circumstances.
A reminder to all, the results must be conveyed to Richard Johns by 5pm at the latest on the following day – Friday.

Llanelli & District Bowling League

MEETING OF CLUBS FOR THE LLANELLI & DISTRICT BOWLING LEAGUE WILL BE HELD AT LLANELLI BOWLING CLUB, OLD ROAD, LLANELLI ON TUESDAY 7TH MARCH 2023 COMMENCING AT 7.00PM

AGENDA

  1. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
  2. TO RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATION FROM THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE:

‘That Rule 8 of the League Rules be deleted and that subsequent Rules, and references to them, be renumbered accordingly.’

This effectively removes the restriction of the number of Registered Female Bowlers allowed to participate in League Matches, thereby assisting many teams in selecting full sides. The current situation restricts the number to four per team with not more than one on each rink. Clubs have, over the last two years, been permitted to request an additional allowance to avoid postponing matches.
The Committee also discussed the requirement that there should be, at least, one Male Bowler on each rink.

  1. TO CLARIFY THE SUBSTITUTE RULE IN RESUMED LEAGUE MATCHES
    The following should be added after League Rule 18

SUBSTITUTES IN A GAME THAT IS BEING CONTINUED AFTER A STOPPAGE.
If any one of the original players in a team is not available, one substitute will be allowed. Players, however, must not be transferred from one team to another. If players are transferred from one team to another, the defaulting team will forfeit the game to their opponents.
Any substitute may not play in the position of skip so other team members shall rearrange.

  1. TO DECIDE ON THE ELIGIBILITY OF FEMALE BOWLERS IN LEAGUE COMPETITIONS
  2. TO RECEIVE AND AMEND, WHERE NECESSARY:

a. LEAGUE COMPETITION RULES

  1. TO RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING
    a. 2023 LEAGUE FIXTURES
    b. 2023 D.J. JONES DRAW
    c. RESULT CARDS
    d. LEAGUE COMPETITION ENTRY FORMS
