4th November 2015 - Green Booking Rules

Dear Section members,

Please note the following rules for national games green booking which will take effect immediately.

1.      A member can only book a rink if there is a definite game to be played.  For example, round 3 game cannot be booked if round 2 game has not yet been played.  However, round 2 game can be booked if round 1 game is “bye”.

2.      Booking of rink during rollup period, i.e. Tuesday evening 7 pm to 9 pm and Thursday evening 7 pm to 9 pm will be subject to approval of the Ladies Captain and Men Captain respectively.  The captain may assign a rink different from the one requested.

3.      If a certain time period is designated for a certain national game (e.g. Sunday morning outdoor green 10 am to 1 pm for Ladies National Single), then players for that nation game will have booking priority for that period.  However, booking must be made within 24 hours after the game status is clarified (for example booking for round 3 has to be made within 24 hours after the round 2 game is played).  Otherwise the booking priority will be forfeited.

4.      If a home game has been rescheduled and the player wants to reserve a rink for the next designated time period, then the player must notify the Green Secretary in order that a rink may be reserved.  The player must then notify the Green Secretary after the rescheduled game is played (whether win or lose) so that the reserved rink can be released if the player has lost the rescheduled game.  It should be noted that in such case the rink is not booked but only reserved.  Other player of the same national game with confirmed result will have priority and can book the reserved rink. Players of other national games will not have priority and so they can only book the rink if it is released after the rescheduled game.

5.      Eligible rink booking will be entertained only if request is sent by WhatsApp (97529500) or by email (koonlawnbowl@gmail.com) to the Green Secretary, on a first come first serve basis.  Email sent to the old email address of the Green Secretary will not be entertained.

6.      To facilitate the booking process, please list all possible rinks in descending priority.  If no other priority is shown and the requested rink is not available, then the request will not be counted as an eligible request.

7.      The Green Secretary will try his best to administer rink booking according to the above rules but there may be errors and omissions from time to time.  Players are asked to bear with oversights and accept apology from the Green Secretary.

 

Koon Cheng, Green Secretary

24th August 2015 - Booking of Outdoor Lawn Bowl Green for practice

To all Section Members

From time to time the outdoor green is open on days or hours that it would normally be closed.  These are special considerations granted by management, upon request from the Section, to help ease the pressure of the section players for playing league games, national games and special section functions such as club pairs.  Management does not allow section members to perform training or practice on these days/hours as the outdoor green is supposed to be closed for the grass to recover from heavy usage.  Section members are advised to practice during normal opening hours and also during organised practice evenings.

27th January 2015 - Entires for Premier League 2015
Time to sign up to the Premier League.
Please either sign up (before 21Feb) on the notice board by the Indoor Green
Or send an email to the Men’s Captain at the club email of hkfcbowls@gmail.com
Don’t forget to update your availability

The triples league is coming to an end and the entry for the number of sides the Club wishes to enter into the Premier league will have to be made to the HKLBA by 23 February 2015.

The fixtures will take place between 18 April and 4 July 2015 for the first half and between 22 August and 30 October 2015 for the second half. 

In order to ensure we enter the right number of teams we would invite members to sign up now for the Premier league.  We now have 150 members in the Men’s section and in the last Premier League we managed to get 89 Men to participate in the league.  Please highlight where your availability, as you know it today, and any preferences you would like to highlight.

The Committee and your Men’s Captain are asking that we attempt to get more men signed up and participating this year in the league.  That may enable us to enter more sides but if not at least we would have a larger supply of players to ensure we can always put out a competitive side.

For those that cannot commit to playing every week we welcome those members to sign up as a reserve.  Even if you are only available for a few weekend games it helps us know who is available and willing to support the section in the league.

Men’s Captain

31st December 2014 - New Laws of the Sport of Bowls 新版草地滾球運動規例
Please find herewith the "New Laws of the Sport of Bowls" for your information.   This will take effect in two phrases commencing 1 January 2015 as per below.  A copy will be placed on the Club Notice Board.
 
MEMORANDUM備忘

FROM:           Claudius Lam                       :           林志堅

DATE:            December 30, 2014             日期:       20141230

SUBJECT:     New Laws of the Sports of Bowls       

 

Earlier this year World Bowls has introduced a new set of the Laws of the Sport of Bowls, the Crystal Mark Third Edition. In Hong Kong the new laws will take effect in two phases:

 

l National competitions: Any competition commenced on or after January 1, 2015 will adopt this version of the laws. All other competitions that have begun before this date and are still in progress will use the existing laws up to the finals. In this case the first competition to use the new laws will be the Mixed Pairs.

l League: The laws will be adopted in the forthcoming Premier League

 

While a lot of the changes are on the wordings and clarification of the current laws, some of them did impact our game. To minimize the impact, Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Association will impose domestic regulation for some of the rules to ensure that no one will gain unfair advantage from them:

 

Law

Description

Hong Kong rules

3.3

Choosing the rinks for play

If, after the draw for rinks has been made, a player in a competition or game plays on the same rink before the start of play on the day of the competition or game, that player will be disqualified. This does not apply to open tournaments.

If a player in a competition or game plays on the same rink on the same day of the competition or game, that player will be disqualified. This does not apply to open tournaments.

5.1.4

Trial Ends

Each player must not use more than the number of bowls being used during the game. If a player or an umpire notices that a player is using more than the permitted number of bowls, the defaulting player will lose the right to play any bowls remaining to be played in the trial ends.

Hong Kong will adopt this. 

6.1.5.6

Portable Groundsheet

Hong Kong allows the use of portable groundsheets as an alternative to the fixed groundsheets mentioned in this law.

6.2.6

To gain better grip during adverse weather conditions a player can, before delivering their bowl, lift the mat, turn it over and replace it in its original position.

Hong Kong will adopt this.  This is a new law and players should always remember that they should ensure that the mat is returned to   its original position when turning it over.

 

 

7.1

Position on the Mat:

"Before delivery a player must be standing on the mat with all or part of at least one foot on the mat. At the moment they deliver the jack or a bowl, the player must have all or part of one foot on or above the mat.

Hong Kong will adopt this.  This removes the requirement that, on taking up a stance on the mat, a player has to have one foot wholly on the mat.

 

14.3

Touchers

No bowl will become a toucher if it plays onto, or comes into contact with, the jack when the jack is in the ditch.

Hong Kong will adopt this.  This clarifies that a bowl cannot become a toucher if it comes into contact with a jack that is already in the ditch and that a bowl previously marked as a toucher will remain a toucher if it is played into the ditch and touches the jack again.

20.2

Dead End

If the jack and bowls need to be transferred to the opposite end of the rink before the end is replayed, they must be transferred in a way which avoids distracting players on neighbouring rinks.

Hong Kong will adopt   this.  No longer mandatory to carry the bowls up the green after a dead end.

23.3

Deciding the number of shots scored

...If a player measures before the process of deciding the number of shots scored starts, the defaulting team will lose the right to play any bowls remaining to be played in that end and the non-defaulting team will deliver their remaining bowls to complete the end.

Hong Kong will adopt this.  There is now a penalty for measuring, i.e. using equipment to determine the shot, before all the bowls in an end have been played.

32.4.2

Game stoppages

Players, however, must not be transferred from one team to another. If players are transferred from one team to another, the defaulting team will forfeit the game to their opponents.

Hong Kong will adopt this.  This applies for games restarted on the same or a different day.

40.1.9

Players duties — The Skip

The duties of the skip will continue to include those duties pertaining to the scorecard. However law 40.1.9 allows Member National Authorities to set an appropriate "Domestic Regulation" for their own domestic play.

For all domestic games the duties described in Law 40.1.7, apart from the provision of Law 40.1.7.5, will be transferred to the second player to play in each team.

le: Pairs — the Skip; Triples and Fours — the Second."

The skip will continue to be responsible for entering the finish time, signing the card and agreeing the final score with the opponents.

 

Although the changes will not mean widespread alterations to the way we play the sport, I think it is essential that every bowlers in Hong Kong should be fully aware of the changes in the Laws.  The new law book, as well as the Chinese translated version is now available from the Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Association.

世界草地滾球總會已於本年中頒布一套全新的草地滾球運動規例(水晶標記第三版),而此等新規例亦將在香港分兩期施行:

 

l 公開賽:所有在2015年1月1日後開始的賽事都會採用新球例。而在該日前已經開始的賽事則仍會採用現有的規例,直至該賽事完成決賽為止。根據現時的時間表,首項應用新球例的賽事將為混合雙人賽。

l 聯賽:新例將由下一屆超級聯賽開始施行。 

 

新例中大部分變更都涉及字眼的使用及對現有球例的詮釋,其中有數項對我們的日常比賽有較大影響。而總會亦因應情況對某些規例進行本地化,以免被利用來取得不公平的優勢:

 

規例

內容

香港規例

3.3

選擇比賽線道

如果在已經決定比賽線道之後,任何球員在比賽開始前的同一天於同一線道上打球,此球員將會被取消比賽資格。此規例不適用於公開錦標賽。

如果任何球員在比賽開始前的同一天於同一線道上打球,此球員將會被取消比賽資格。此規例不適用於公開錦標賽。

5.1.4

試局

每位球員進行試局時,不能使用超過比賽用的滾球數目。假如對手或裁判發現一名球員使用了超過指定數目的滾球,該違規球員將失去繼續試局的權利。

香港將採用此新例。

6.1.5.6

流動式護地墊

在本地賽事中,地方總會可以決定是否容許使用流動式護地墊作以取代上述之固定式護地墊。

香港容許使用流動式護地墊以取代規例中提及之固定式護地墊。

6.2.6

在濕滑環境下,球員可在發球之前將地蓆翻轉並放回原位,以防滑倒。

 

香港將採用此新例。

球員應緊記在把地蓆翻轉時必須將之放在原來地點。

7.1

地蓆上站立位置

球員準備發球時,最少其中一隻腳的部份或全部必須踏在地蓆範圍內。在發出目標球或滾球的一刻,球員必須有一隻腳完全或部份踏在地蓆上或處於地蓆上方。

香港將採用此新例。

球員站立地蓆上準備發球時,再不需要有一隻腳全部處於地蓆上。

14.3

接觸球

任何滾球擊中或觸及在壕溝內的目標球,都不會成為接觸球。

香港將採用此新例。

此例澄清了任何滾球擊中或觸及已在壕溝內的目標球時,都不會成為接觸球。而一個已標記的接觸球即使被推下壕溝及再觸及目標球,它仍然是一個接觸球。

20.2

作廢賽局

假如雙方須將目標球及已發出的滾球帶到線道對面,他們必須以不騷擾鄰線球員的方式把球帶回發球點。

香港將採用此新例。

在賽局作廢後,球員不再硬性規定要用手拿球回發球方。

23.3

決定得分球數目

... 如有球員在決定得分球數目的過程還沒有開始前進行量度,違規隊伍將不能繼續發出此局餘下的滾球,而未違規隊伍則可繼續發球以完成賽局。

香港將採用此新例。

此新罰則應用於球員在賽局所有滾球未全部發出前已利用量度工具進行量度的情況。

32.4.2

暫停比賽

球員不能由一小隊轉往另一小隊出賽。假如一名球員由一小隊轉往另一小隊出賽,該隊將被判落敗。

香港將採用此新例。

此例適用於在同日或另一日重新開始的比賽。

40.1.9

球員的責任— 主球手

主球手繼續負責處理記分咭。但規例40.1.9容許區總會在本地賽事中另作安排。

在香港所有本地比賽中,除了規例40.1.7.5外,主球手在規例40.1.7的職責都會由第二球手擔任(雙人賽由主球手擔任,三人及四人賽由第二球手擔任)。主球手須要記錄完成時間、簽署記分咭及與對手確認比分。

 

雖然新規例並未帶來重大修訂,但我們覺得所有球手都應該對新例有所認識,由世界草地滾球總會準備之新規例及中文版本現已在香港草地滾球總會有售。

18th April 2014 - Good Friday Changing Partner Challenge

A total of 30 members joined the Changing Partner Challenge in Good Friday 18th April 2014. 

Photos in our Gallery.

Details of the Event here.

A paragraph from Mark Mahoney

Many Years ago, at the place I worked, they organized a “Progressive Supper”. On the evening of the event we were telephoned and given an address to find. Three couples arrived at the address and the host or hostess presented us with our first course of the evening. At the end of this each couple was given the next address, where we met up with three other couples and sat down for our main course. We were then given an address for our dessert where we met three other couples. A final address was then provided where everyone met up and spent the remaining part of the evening partying away. It was an interesting concept but could only survive as long as Hong Kong had no drink/driving laws. 
It was rumored a computer program was used to work out the logistics of this event.

Not to be out done, our Competitions Secretary, Walter  used his immeasurable logistic skills to devise “The Changing Partners Challenge” which, in my mind, rivaled the Progressive Supper in its complexity and design.

The tournament was designed in such a way that during the afternoon each bowler had four games of eight ends and had the opportunity to bowl with different team mates in different positions on different rinks.

Thirty bowlers took part. They were randomly drawn into ten triples teams. The draw decided who you played with, which position you took and which rink you played on.
At the end of the first game each winner received a prize of twenty dollars. There was then a draw for the second round which ensured winners from round one were mixed with non-winners in new teams and positions and new rinks.


The afternoon continued in this way for the four games with each individual bowler recording their points and shots difference.

The tournament provided a welcome afternoon tea which  disappeared  rapidly, causing a temporary lull in the delivery of bowls.

After the final game everyone gathered together to see if anyone had been lucky enough to have been in the winning team in all four games and indeed there was one such charmed person. Cheng Koon Wing had amassed eight points and made him the overall winner, with Warren Cheung coming in second on seven points and Hannah Ha in third on six points and 18 net shots.   In addition, Rupert was awarded the most colorful outfit player and would receive his prize on Pig Cutting Day. 

It was a great afternoon’s bowling with everyone enjoying the event. Koon kindly spent all of his winnings and more on providing everyone with a drink.

Sincere thanks to Walter on organizing this and may there be many more like it.

5th April 2014 - Friendly with HKCC / Melbourne Cricket Club

Social with HK and Melbourne Cricket Clubs 


HKFC lent a helping hand to HKCC to host their lawn bowls guests from Melbourne Cricket Club today as their bowling green was "temporarily" enlisted as a cricket ground on the public holiday Saturday afternoon. 

Our dozen bowlers - Daisy, Dorothy, Hannah, Harold, Leo, Louis, Matthew, Philip, Roger, Shirley, Walter and Wanis were mixed with the 20 visitors to form 8 multiple club rinks to play 3 rounds of short games. Good idea of Howard and Glyn to make sure every club particularly HKCC has a winner. 

While on that subject if it matters the rinks of Daisy, Harold, Luby of HKCC and Norm from MCC and Shirley, Matthew, and Lynda and Henri of HKCC came out as the top teams. They received a well-earned round of applause as the prize.

At the end of the day, it's about having a good time which we all had. Thanks once again to Glyn for the bottle of red and Norm for their crystal glasses, which Bernard has decided to put them in good use at the next Section function.

24th August 2013 - Rollup with Visitors from Bangkok

Friday 23rd August saw the section host the Royal Bangkok Sports Club's lawn bowlers to a friendly warm up game in preparation for their triangular tournament with KCC and KBGC. Despite the heavy rains the excellent drainage of our new lawn enabled us to play three rinks and once our visitors had gone the hang of our green we ended up having a very close game. The visiting captain Ken Ho exchanged mementos with our Chairman Roger who confirmed that we were looking forward to a formal Interport fixture in Bangkok this coming December.

Thanks to Johnny for all his liaison and coordination work that enabled this event to take place.

18th August 2013 - CCC Friendly Game on 17th August 2013
Saturday 17th August saw us host CCC for the Friendly Neighbourhood Trophy which was in the hands of our guests.
 
Six mixed rinks had been organized by Bernard and in proper friendly atmosphere we were able to recapture the Cup by winning 4 rinks to 2 with Wanis, Derek, Terry and James leading their respective rinks to victory. Undoubtedly the advantage of playing on our indoor green proved the crucial point as it was noted that in the 5 times we have played for this cup the home team has been the victor.So the challenge for us next year is to see if we can retain the cup playing away to CCC. 
 
My thanks also to Walter for all the pre match organization.
Roger

7th August 2013 - Messages on Outdoor Green from Groundsman
Please note two messages below from our Groundsman.
 
Outdoor Green Re-opening
 
The green is scheduled to open at 6.00 p.m. on Friday, 9th August.
 
 
New Umbrella Table

Please note Club Management is going to replace a new set of umbrellas with tables (see the sample of the attached photo) at outdoor green.

The new umbrella stands are heavy enough to support the whole set of unit and the old drinks cabinet will then be replaced; in result this can spare more space for the area.

Comments are welcome.

6th August 2013 - HKCC Friendly Game on 3rd August 2013
In spite of the very unsettled weather caused by Tropical Storm Jebi the rain abated in time for the HKCC lawn to quickly drain and dry and we were able to play our Social Game on schedule on 2nd August. They had invited us to send seven mixed rinks to play them and there were some excellent performances on both sides. HKCC won four of the rinks but we were able to clinch the aggregate thanks to Hannah, Connie and Neil's rinks winning handsomely so honours were even.
 
The hospitality we received was first class and a splendid time was had by all who participated which we will be keen to reciprocate.
 
Apparently there is an old trophy 'The Apple' that previously existed between our two clubs so we will see if we can find it, or if necessary,replace it in time for the return fixture which should take place later this year after the completion of the Premier League and before the start of the Winter League.
 
My thanks to Walter for his organization and coordination work that ensured everything ran smoothly from our end and of course my thanks to HKCC's Glyn Davies and Howard...... for all their hard work preparing for and receiving us so warmly,
 
Roger
