Top Club at Leamington.

Fancy a few days in September in Leamington?

Now, I can't promise the current weather on 15 & 16 September 2018, and I'm not sure most of us would want it, (neither can I make weather promises for August, by the way) but I can promise Markers & Umpires an interesting couple of days!

What am I on about? I am as usual looking for volunteers to work at the Bowls England Top Club Finals.

If you didn't feel confident enough to volunteer for the Championships in August, or you couldn't make it for some other reason, now is your chance to work at Leamington when it is much less pressurised than in August. Even if you are new to your grade, this is a prime opportunity to find out about the Leamington that you hear everyone talking about!

Let me have the Application form below back by 29 July (either by email (ebuasecretary@btinternet.com) or 'snail mail') to apply.

Johns Trophy and Middleton Cup

Your attention is drawn to Bowls England Regulation 52 8.3 (Middleton Cup) and 53 8.3 (Johns Trophy).

"In the group stages, should a match end as a tie (both shots and points) after 21 ends then an extra end or ends will be played by all six rinks simultaneously until there is a winner.

The total number of shots on all six rinks will count on the extra end and the winning team reported to Bowls England. The extra end will not form part of the score within the group stages but will ONLY be used to separate the two counties if they are level at the conclusion of the group stages after points and shots difference have been taken into account."

A full copy of the regulations can be found on https://bowlsengland.247.tv

Leamington Duties

Reminder

There still seem to be quite a lot of you who have been given duties at Leamington who have not yet confirmed that they will be doing them.

The letter sending out your duties asked for confirmation by return and was posted at the beginning of April. By return seems to be very slow from some parts of England!

If I don't get your confirmations very soon I shall be looking at re-allocating your duties.

Leamington Duties

The letters telling you what duties you have been allotted for Leamington will be arriving with you in the next few days. Please don't forget to send me your confirmations that you can do them, or, let me know if you can't!

Markers

Don't forget that to work at Leamington you must have reached Level 3 competency. There are some marking duties at Leamington available for you, and I will be sending out to those of you who have reached that competency level later to give you the chance to volunteer.
