1 The Objectives –To nominate and provide qualified referees of the games of bowls played under the laws of British Crown Green Bowling Assoc.  To promote local interest in refereeing, measuring and fair play in general. To hold periodic examinations of the Laws of the Game.

2 There is an opportunity to learn the Laws of Crown Green Bowls and anyone wishing to do so can attend seminars that are held locally commencing in November. All attendees will have the opportunity to take the Referees examination if they so wish, but no-one is under any obligation to take the examination or even to join the Referees Society if they are successful.

3 There is a serious shortage of qualified referees in Cumbria. If  you are an aspiring referee, a team captain in need of a referesher course on the Laws of the Game or just an interested player who likes to see things done properly and fairly then please contact Colin Haworth. address above or email
