The Zone AGM (April 2018) agreed to increase the Zone fees from £15 pa to £20 pa per club.

The IIBA AGM (April 2018) saw the IIBA Affiliation fee rise from £25 to £30 for the incoming season.

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.

If anyone needs to complete Child Protection Training, please contact the Zone Secretary asap   and if numbers are suficient we will endeavour to arrange a suitable course (September 2018).
