15th November BOWLS
Following the decision passed unanimously at the Annual General Meetings of both the SCBA and SCWBA the unified County
Organisation will be renamed 'Bowls Surrey'. There will be one Constitution that will cover the administration of the Organisation. There will be no change to the way
in which each Association operates, they will continue as SCBA and SCWBA and carry out their day to day activities such as competitions etc. as they do at
present. The one major change is that there will be only one AGM in November 2018. A review of the Rules and Regulations is being carried out at present and in the meantime the Rules and Regulations
from the previous Constitutions should be used.
