LAST ZONE MEETING FOR 2019
The next meeting of the Zone 9 Management Committee will be held at Belrose BC (not Forestville RSL) on Monday 9th December at 7.30pm.
A highlight for this last meeting of 2019 will be the presentation of the Open, Senior and Reserve Bowler of the Year awards. This is the first time the Zone has presented Senior and Reserve Bowler of the Year awards.
MOSMAN TRAVELLING BOWLERS VISIT NZ
Earlier this month 40 Mosman BC members participated in the club's 6th annual Bowls Tour, this time a return visit to New Zealand. Previous tours visited clubs in Port Macquarie, Perth, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Friendly tournaments were played at the Lyall Bay (Wellington), Palmerston North and Napier Bowling Clubs where the host clubs provided typically warm Kiwi hospitality!
The annual tours are a great way to end the bowling year and do much to continue the strong friendship bonds amongst everyone at Mosman BC.
NSW WATER RESTRICTIONS
In response to the NSW Government move to introduce Level 2 Water Restrictions from 10th December, BNSW has today released Circular 17/2019 - NSW Water Restrictions.
BNSW is mindful that many Clubs have commenced renovating their greens and is concerned at the impact these water restrictions may have at such a critical time of the renovation season.
Please refer to Circular 17/2019 (see link below) for some useful information and Clubs are also asked to be on the lookout for an upcoming survey being sent to all sporting bodies across NSW.
PREPARATION FOR 2020 PENNANT SEASON
Thanks to all Clubs for sending through their 2020 Pennant Grade Applications and their Pennant Player Availability Lists.
Between now and the end of the year, the Zone 9 Match Committee will assess all this data and prepare the 2020 Zone 9 Pennant Program that must be presented to BNSW by late December.
In the meantime, there are a number of matters that Clubs must be keeping an eye on:
1. Additions to the Pennant Player Availability Lists
With Clubs now having submitted their PPA Lists, any changes (especially additions) to these lists must be made as per the following:
We are aware of a number of players who have changed Clubs for 2020 but for whom we have not received a copy of their clearance paperwork. It is imperative that players who have changed Clubs have their clearance processed and cleared by BNSW and a copy is forwarded to Zone Secretary Mark Alexander. The Zone 9 Match Committee cross-references clearances with the PPA Lists to make sure all is in order.
Please do not send through any regrade requests until we have received confirmation from the State Match Committee that our 2020 Pennant Program (incl. Pennant Grades) has been approved. All Clubs will be notified when this approval has been received but this is not expected till at least mid-January.
