2015 State Pennant Appeal
This afternoon, following due consideration, the Board of Bowls NSW resolved to uphold the appeal of the Zone 10 Bowling Association against the State Match Committee’s re-allocation of grades for the 2015 Pennant Season. As this matter has now been resolved, the Zone 10 Match Committee will proceed with the issuing of a draw based on its original grade allocations.
It should be noted that on relaying the news back to the club affected, whilst obviously disappointed with and remaining in disagreement to the decision, they accepted the ruling with a good grace and decorum for which they are to be congratulated and Zone 10 Match is most grateful.
