Welfare of Juniors

It is now against the law to smoke in a vehicle with a Junior in the vehicle . So any one who takes Juniors to games please take note .

BCGBA Rule 11

Smoking of any kind is not allowed on the green

This means that you cannot smoke any type of Cigarette / E Cigarette or pipe once your game has started , you cant nip to the edge of the green while waiting for a measure or go to the toilet & have a quick smoke , if you do you will lose the game .

Size of a Bowl

At the last BCGBA management meeting an interim order was passed that states an addendum to Law 1.5

A player may use a bowl under the 907 gms limit as long as that bowl has a minimum profile height of 100mm & is not black , yellow or white in colour .
