Becoming an Umpire

 Interested in becoming an umpire?

In January 2018, Bowls BC published details about Umpire courses. Courses were held in various locations in May 2018. So far, we have no information about any other umpire courses in the 2018 season. Any member interested in taking an umpiring course, please contact David Mathie of Juan de Fuca LBC at davidmathie@shaw.ca

 

Notes on Measuring for Umpires

Bob Akins

Bob Akins

The nine pages of notes shown below were copied from a document prepared in 1999 by the late Bob Akins, an umpire and long-time member of the Oak Bay club. He bowled into his nineties!

Faith Magwood found the document in 2018 and has given it to the club. It is shown online here for easy reference. Note that the Laws of the Sport have changed since Bob wrote his Notes. Now, for outdoor play in Canada, the minimum distance for the jack is 21 m, not 23 m. See Bowls Canada, Amendments section.
