During the match a skittler fell and ambulance was called.   Gentleman suffered a broken knee.

 

C}            Discipline Item between 2 ladies teams. (Hon. Assistant Secretary left for this item)

 

A letter had been received about a game where some heated discussion had taken place about a ball coming off the side of the alley and knocking pins down, including whether they counted towards the end score. Also at one point a opposing player had been overheard making a controversial remark to the youngest player in home team. Home team felt this was not sporting conduct.

Committee agreed that clarification be sent to home team thanking them for raising concerns and pointing out rule number (pins remain down and do not count) and a reminder should go to the opposition that derogatory remarks should not be made about opponents
