28/02/2015  Re: Mary Stevens Park B.C. To all visiting teams SC Div 3 and 5

Due to our heritage lottery bid some 3.2 million will be spent on the park this summer with contractors vehicles parking on site. Dudley MBC has also placed some 320 staff in the main house with the park car parking of only 180 spaces.
Thus parking on-site will be very difficult this season so visiting teams should allow plenty of time and car sharing would be recommended. The local MP Margot James has organized a petition asking DMBC to return the car parking to the local visitors. It would be appreciated if any team can support this petition and help all park users to freely park on our park. The online address is https.// www.surveymonkey.com/s/marystevenspark
Your support would be greatly appreciated'
Thanks in advance Roger Wynne Bowls Secretary MSP

11/11/2014  The Federation of Crown Green Bowls
The League have been approached by Bowlers over the past season to see if there is possibility of starting up a County side to represent Dudley & District League similar to that which had been done with Central Midlands . The Committee have considered these requests and are actively investigating the possibility of restarting the status from the Dudley & District Bowling League and applying to join the above Federation. This Federation has some 33 teams or Districts so there would be a strong possibility that any application would be considered favourably. The match organisation would be formed as part of the Dudley League main Committee with its own Committee to oversee the games and arrangements. More details will be discussed at the Leagues AGM when it would be voted on to see the way forward.
If there are any questions then feel free to ask any of the following Committee members for further information
Mandy Pagett, Chris Lambert, Simon Totten, Mick Brown, Derek Aldridge or Myself
Derek Brookes League Secretary

17/10/2014 First of all thanks to those who attended Wednesday nights presentation at Rowley LC regarding the scoring system that will be implemented for 2015 season. A few general notes for you.

The Players registration Form will still be submitted as usual at the pay in meeting. Barry will then check 2015 list against those from 2014 list and adjust accordingly. New players can be added in the normal fashion.
Players can be transferred in the normal fashion.
It will be the HOME teams responsibility to complete the score card as normal and to have it signed by the away Captain. It is then the HOME team who complete the score card on line and submit.
Away Captain to check on line the accuracy of the card and accept accordingly.
All the existing Rules regarding late cards, late submission of card, unregistered player etc will still apply
Whilst teams would still be able to incorrectly play a player who has already played on the date, the system will not allow the recording of same and then becomes an unlisted player.
Clubs will need to retain the cards, as this year, if sent on line, in case there is a dispute.
If a dispute then the card would have to be sent to Barry.
Clubs if they do not have the facilities to send on line, can still scan or post FIRST class post.
Score cards will be the same as last year
Log in numbers will be issued at pay in meeting together with an information sheet
Log in numbers will be the same if you have 1, 2, 3 teams + Ladies + Thursdays etc
League Rule 11 will be amended to reflect the new system
The new system also incorporates notice to Barry when matches are approaching the 4 weeks overdue date .
The Leagues Web site has been amended to incorporate the new system, when on the League Web site click on League Statistics and it brings up the new system.
If you want to try the new system, go to bowlingresults.co.uk and click on here for PC or Lap Top demonstration, Click on Club log in, enter demo click ok, then click on Audlem A which gives you a blank score card and away you go. Derek Brookes League Secretary
