For the better part of this year, the Zone has been holding Rules Clinics to help with digesting the new rules that were published effective January 1, 2019. With the exception of one club, all Zone 5 clubs have experienced either an indoor or outdoor workshop. Thanks to Trevor Brown, he and Debbie Needham, have conducted these events throughout the Zone and will continue to do so as requested.
On March 26th, the Women’s Zone 5 Committee, lead by Rules Chair, Debbie Needham, conducted an indoor/outdoor session at Royal Colwood, ably assisted by Rules Referees, Trevor Brown, Alison Murdoch and Mike Martyns. These Referees volunteer their time to not only the Men’s and Women’s events, but Provincial and National events as well. We are very fortunate to have such dedicated and knowledgeable Referees in our Zone, so the next time you are involved in a tournament, be sure to show your gratitude with a wave of the cap or thank you.
A total of 111 ladies attended, spanning the Zone from Duncan to Pender and Salt Spring Islands. The day was beautiful for mid-March outdoors, followed by a lovely lunch. Our thanks to Royal Colwood for the use of their practice facilities and equipment setup in the dining room.
