Friday Bowls

(Page updated: 3/9/20)

The Hills Club Friday “Ian Haggarty-sponsored” social bowls is a nominated-Pairs format. With our current “Coronavirus complications”, some changes have been necessary & everything is revealed here. (Being hopeful that we’ll revert back one day, the old formats are retained below, as a reminder of what we used to do?)

 

The Covid rules –

Game format:

  • played as a single game, 4 bowl Pairs over 21 ends

(Single names are acceptable, with organisers attempting to find a partner)

 

Draw format:

  • random draw

Start time: 10:30am – with players requested to be in the club 20mins before start time, to get teams underway no later than 10:30

No trial ends before the game

 

Prize format:

  • Ian & Scott Haggarty-sponsored $40 team prize from random draw of all wining team cards
  • plus, $40 rink prize for margin draw, jack-potting until won (margin calculated from lowest to highest + 10 with machine to draw the number).

 

Note:

  • May be played as “nominated-Triples” format whenever green space is limited (eg greens under maintenance)

 



Non-Covid times – (ie “the way we used to play”?)

Game format:

  • played over 2 shorter games with winners of game 1 drawn against other winners (with losers playing other losing teams); 4 bowl Pairs, time-limited (13 ends each game maximum)

 

Draw format:

  • teams will be split between two pools (Pool A & Pool B) based on the sum of 2019 Pennant Grades of team members.
  • teams listed lowest to highest by team points total and a line drawn at middle of list each week to determine both pools.
  • those teams above the line Pool A and those below the line Pool B

Start time: 10:30am – with players requested to be in the club 20mins before start time, to get teams underway no later than 10:30

No trial ends before either game

 

Prize format:

  • prizes for Winners and Runners-up in each pool (per payment guidelines posted on noticeboard)

 

Note:

  • May be played as “nominated-Triples” format whenever green space is limited (eg greens under maintenance)

 

Additionally, Ian Haggarty offers quarterly & annual awards for the series point-score leaders; points being accumulated for each player over the season with allocations of:

Win in game 1 +2 points
Win in game 2 +2 points
Draw in game 1 or 2 +1 point each
Loss in game 1 or 2 0 points each
Pool winner +4 points
Pool runner-up +2 points
