NEWS ITEMS – July 2023.


*** SEASON 2023/24 – . New rules apply for Tuesday Pennant – rules which are much less restrictive than previous seasons. We no longer have the gender bias that we had. If any member is interested in playing Tuesday Pennant this season, but didn’t play last season, contact a member of the Tuesday Selection Committee to let them know – see both selection committees below……. It’s never too early to start preparing for the upcoming seasons bowls – Even during these cooler months, 1 o’clock to 3 o’clock in the afternoon on days when the sun is out and there isn’t much wind (no, we don’t get too many of them!!!) provides good conditions for going down and having a roll. A good number of our senior bowlers set a very good example in this regard…….. If you want particular consideration from one of the selection committees for a change or a personal re-assessment of your pennant bowling, it’s not too early to talk to a selector or the particular selection committee…….. This upcoming season, we will certainly not have some bowlers who bowled for us last season. Hopefully, we will pick up some new bowlers. If you know of any bowlers not currently playing with BMS that might be interested in doing so, contact one or both of our Selection Committees to let them know…….. Let us make sure that BMS is once again, one of the best prepared clubs at the start of the 23/24 season.

*** SELECTION COMMITTEES – We wish all 8 selectors the very best of selecting for season 23/24……. Being a good selector is one of the difficult administrative positions in our club. The task is, arguably the most important in the “psychology” of the club and the social cohesion within it. Maximizing our Pennant competitiveness depends almost entirely on how well our selectors perform…….. Be supportive of our selectors; allow them and assist them to do the job as well as they possibly can…….. Our Selection Committees are as follows (interesting gender mix) :–

Saturday Pennant – Judy Lindsay, Mick Hampson, Linda Johannsen, Neil Ellard, Adam McLean.

Tuesday Pennant – Lyn Bryce, Michelle Tait, Di Hampson.
