Men’s Midweek Pennants Gosnells Bowling Club
Message from the Men’s Selectors
Welcome bowlers to the new season. We wish you well. Last year’s results and team selections are just that – last year’s! This is a new season.
Control what you can control: You can control consistency, enthusiasm and a positive attitude. You can’t control green speed or surface, weather conditions or your opponent’s ability.
Treat each other and our opponents with respect. This includes attitude towards all members irrespective of ability and gender.
Display appropriate etiquette and conduct on the green and at the Club.
Resolve selection issues politely in private and not in an open forum.
Be supportive of fellow team members and show positive body language.
If you finish early, stay out to support teams who are still playing.
Always play for your Club, team and teammates. (THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE).
Indicate on pennant board if travelling direct to away games.
Please list name on the “unavailable list” on the Notice Board.
Players are asked to arrive at the game venue by 12.30pm Midweek and 12.45pm on Saturdays to allow time for a roll up.
Green Fees/Afternoon tea are $6 ($3 green fee & $3 afternoon tea – cheese & biscuits).
Thirds are responsible for washing & drying afternoon tea dishes.
Managers, your scorecards, result sheets and envelopes for green fees will be printed for you by David Bradbury and left on the bench near the men’s pennant board. Any late changes will need to be written by hand.
Scorer or skipper to sign scorecards after each pennant game.

Factors Which May Affect a Player’s Selection
Availability: A player’s commitment for the full season & availability for selection in any division will be favourably regarded. Players who make themselves unavailable at short notice (except for a good reason) adversely risk affecting their selection outcome. Players becoming unavailable for any reason will not automatically be picked in the same team, position or division upon their return.
Personal Preferences: Players who limit who they will or won’t play with, or what position (except for medical reasons) or division they want to be selected in adversely risk affecting their own selection outcome.
Player Behaviour: Pennant Players who do not meet the behaviour expectations outlined in the Club’s Constitution, By Laws, Policies and Code of Conduct shall risk their selection to represent the Club.
Players Who Miss Selection: Players missing selection need to prove to the selectors, through practice and performance in Club events, that their form warrants them a regular place ahead of another player.
