Sponsorship for Zone general activities
With increasing costs the Zone has been fortunate in securing sponsorship from a number of sources for our general activities this season. We would like to sincerely thank the following for their generosity:
An Anonymous donor
Ronnie Thompson Funeral Directors
White Mountain Tyres
This sponsorship is very much appreciated by the Zone Committee and will enable the further promotion of Indoor Bowls in Lisburn Zone. The above sponsorship is in addition to existing Zone Championships and Charity Competition sponsorship.
Zone Teams for Inter Zone matches 2023
The Zone selectors are seeking names for the pools of players for the Zone teams for the matches in 2023. The format this year has changed and matches will be played at Belfast Indoor Bowls Club, Shaws Bridge. Ladies on 4th February and Gents on 11th February.
Club Secretaries should forward nominations asap to the appropriate selector-Gents, John Mackey; Ladies Patricia Halliday. Their contact details are on the Contact page of this website.
Congratulations to Lisburn Zone players, brothers Raymond and Gordon Stubbs who recently won the “British Isles Pairs” championships.
IIBA events and venues are detailed below.
The other main change is to Rule 37 Last End or Extra End (page 51) which was changed to:
Rule 37 Bowl touching the jack and coming to rest in the ditch
In singles, pairs, triples and fours, if any of the first two bowls delivered by the lead shall touch the jack and come to rest completely in the ditch, they shall be declared dead and removed from the mat. If either bowl so delivered comes to rest intersecting the ditch line it shall be marked as a toucher. Where the former Law 37 covered the last end and extra end the change in wording means that it applies to EVERY end.
