I hope that the following situations and responses assist all players to fur ther enjoy their participation. Q: Who approves the application of a player to use an artificial device when playing bowls? A: The State or Territory Associations approve applications for the use of ar tificial devices for the delivery of the jack or bowls. Law DR. 3 .4 .2 Q: Can an Umpire, by obser vation, decide that a player is deliberately delaying play? If so what so what can the Umpire do? A: Yes. On the first occasion the Umpire will warn the player. If the player commits the same offence a second time the end will be regarded as completed and the opponents of the offender will score as many shots as there are bowls in use by such opponent. If the player offends a third time the game will be forfeited to the opponent. Law DR 14 Q: At the completion of a round in a tournament the skip wishes the third and second to change playing positions. Is this permitted? A:Yes. Prior to the start of any subsequent game in the same competition the playing positions of the constituted personnel may be changes. Law DR. 4 .1 .18(ii) Q: May players change playing positions during a game such as Pennant? A: No. Each player having delivered a bowl the team shall become constituted and shall not be altered during a game in either personnel or playing positions except by the necessary introduction of an approved substitute. Law DR. 4.1 .18(i) Q: A player deliberately measures the distance between the jack and some bowls by placing a foot between the jack and the bowls before the skip delivers the bowl. The opponent objects to this. What would the umpire tell the players? A: No measuring will be allowed before the process of deciding the number of shots scored starts. Law 40.3 Q: A player stands on the mat with their toes protr uding over the front edge of the mat. The bowl is delivered from this position. Is the player foot-faulting? A: Yes. Before delivery a player should be standing on the mat with one foot fully on the mat. At the moment they deliver the jack or bowl, the player should have one foot on or above the mat. Law 20.1 Q:Thejackis splitintwobya drive. What happens? A: The umpire would declare the end dead, (Law 31 will apply) and the end replayed with a replacement jack. Law 48.2 Q: If a jack in course on a windy day appears to pass outside the boundary of the rink but comes to rest on the boundary line. Is the jack live? A: No. The jack is dead if it passes completely outside a side boundary of the rink of play. Law 30.1 dot 2 Q: The club champion withdrew from the club fours without being constituted. May he/she be used as a substitute for a new bowler who is unavailable to play in a subsequent round? A: Yes. He/She will be regarded as not having entered the competition and is eligible to be a substitute. A substitute should be chosen from the eligible players whose playing ability should not be taken into account. Laws DR.4 .1 .22 and DR.4 .1 .6 Umpires Umpires Carolyn McIntyre
