Stratton Churchway Bowls Club


It’s with great sadness that on Sunday 13th September 2020 our friend, long serving club member, ex-club president and club stalwart Dave Humphreys passed away.
Dave had been at the club for well over 40 years and had been instrumental in the club's survival in the late 1970’s when things were tough for the club. Through the following decades Dave gave his time and committed so much to the club, he was a key figure in the club launching the floodlight gala in the 1980’s which is still an annual success over 35 years later.  Dave held numerous officer roles at the club over the years, his most recent was club president which he stepped back from a few years ago. Dave was a great club member, a great player on the green in his day, a proud Welshman and a great friend to many of us and it’s a sad time.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time.

LAWS OF THE SPORT OF BOWLS
LAWS OF THE SPORT CRYSTAL MARK EDITION (VERSION 3.1)

 

The revisions to the Laws of the Sport which were approved at World Bowls Council Meetings in December 2016 and April 2018 have been incorporated into the ‘Crystal Mark Third Edition’ to create Version 3.1 of that document.

 

A copy of both Version 3.1 and a document containing the Revisions can be downloaded from the ‘Laws of the Sport’ section under the ‘Laws & Umpiring Link’ on the World Bowls website: www.worldbowls.com or here SCBC - Laws of the sport v3.1.pdf  SCBC - Laws of the sport v3.1 Revisons to Third Edition.pdf

 

The section has also been updated to provide an explanation of the Laws review and approval process. Your attention is drawn to the final paragraph in the section which explains what Laws and Laws-related documents individuals should have in their possession whilst participating in the sport.

 

As a by-product of the creation of Version 3.1 of the Laws, the text associated with the ‘WB Laws Decisions’ section under the ‘Laws & Umpiring Link’ on the WB website has been updated and the Revisions approved in 2016 and 2018 have been removed.
