C'MON SMOKERS, PLAY BY THE REGULATIONS!
Jack has been out around the greens in the early part of the season and seen some great bowls, but has also witnessed a number of things that cause concern.
Dress is a real concern with Interclub and Pennants sides suppose to all be in white or all in club colours. With clubs changing shirts quite regularly, it appears that as long as all the players have 1 or other of the club uniforms there is no problem, but Jack has seen players wearing street clothes and shoes and appearing to pay no regard to the regulations governing this area of the game.
The other area of concern is SMOKING on the green, with Jack understanding that all Bowls Wellington events are No Smoking on the greens and if host clubs have a regulation at their venue, then this may include the surrounds as well. In Jack’s travels, he has observed bowlers smoking while playing at almost every green he has visited and wonders what the Controlling Body will do police this regulation.
