recieved news today that john ( jack McGee) a bowler for the parkside and st winnies passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. 1 of the finest bowlers bootle has produced i am sure several ex bowlers on the site will remember him RIP Jackie.
thought it was a bowls competition so what's pat and billy line dancing on the green for congratulations terry and so the big question football has a referee cricket and tennis have umpire so what about bowls
after playing bowls for over 20 years bill, i can honestly say i have never come across a situation were a home captain has had to make a decision under those rules. the vast majority of distance of bowls from the jack are taken by the bowlers in question at each end, if they cannot decide a call for pegs are asked for. the peggers whose decision is then accepted as final. i will not dispute Bill that the rule you say is in the crown green bowling rules but as i say i have never or known of any other captain having to take that decision i captained a couple parkside teams ror a few years when i was bowling and i thankfully never called upon to make any such like decisions.
Hi Steve(I am assuming that is your name), I agree,I have never seen a captain have to make a decision about measuring, but I have seen seen them have to make decisions about the score, or whether a wood has been bowled illegally or not.

I am new to the game but have found it very competitive especially marking the card and have had a few disputes already only a few games left of the season for me, have managed to win a couple but has been all about learning so looking forward to next season already
Ed, we took over the green from the council and just pay them a peppercorn rent. In return we maintain the green and the huts and the surrounding grounds ourselves, otherwise it would have been closed down by now.
