WEST GIPPSLAND BOWLS DIVISION
PENNANT UPDATE 11 Nov 2020
There has been some discussion regarding our statement on spectators as issued earlier in the week. The following rules apply:
Spectators are only allowed if they are coaching, umpiring, or supervising children or if needed as support persons for persons with additional needs and exercising appropriate distancing requirements.
If present, spectators must not gather in groups of more than 10.
The reason we asked that legitimate spectators should be seated between the greens was to remove them from the presence of players.
Some Clubs may allow their members on Club premises whilst pennant is in progress, On no account are these people to sit at the ends of the green amongst the players.
Umpires Chief Ian Wilson has organised for aspiring and re-accrediting umpires, measurers and markers to have a series of tutorials commencing on Mon 16th November at Morwell BC.
Anyone that has not already made an application to Bowls Victoria can still come and attend, but they need to go onto the Bowls Vic web site to get the application form, have it completed and sent back to Bowls Vic. Ian can start them off without a copy of the form but he can’t have them do the final assessment without having it in his hands from Bowls Vic. Ian’s email is
The course will be held at Morwell Bowling Club starting at 9:30am and will go till about 1:00pm each Monday.
As all Pennant Teams are lodged on Bowlslink this is an accurate attendance record for bowlers playing pennant as it can easily be retrieved.
A number of Clubs have rung the DHHS and been given approval for four players to travel to Pennant in the one car providing they all wear masks.
