    Firstly, an update on Open Gender with some recent progress on the Exemption that Bowls SA has applied for from the Equal Opportunity Tribunal. A Preliminary

    Hearing date has been set for Wednesday 25 November 2009 before Judge Trenorden in the District Court with a further hearing proposed for early December. Once these hearings have occurred further information will be provided. At the Bowls SA Board meeting on 26 October 2009 the Board ratified the formation of a Boundary Review Committee comprising the following members: Bob Cooper - Chair (Ascot Park &

    Region 11) Brian Cooper (Mt. Gambier, Lower

    South East Bowling Association & Region 1)

    Carol Bammann (Melrose, Flinders Womens Bowling Association & Region 3)

    Jeff Brown (Glenelg and Region 11) John Spillane (Goolwa, Great

    Southern Bowling Association & Region 7)

    Ken Stokes (Berri, Riverland Mens Bowls Association & Region 4)

    Mike Brown (Somerton & Region 11)The main objective of this committee is to review the current boundaries of Bowls SA which have been in place since 2004 following the unification of the RSABA and SAWBA in 2003. Other issues that will be considered and addressed by the Committee during the review include:Applications from Clubs to transfer from their existing Associations and/or Regions and applications from Associations to transfer from their existing Regions and the associated implicationsPopulation and demographic trendsEffects on Associations and/or

    Regions resulting from the Bowls SA Open Gender Policy

    Distances required to travel to competitions

    Implications of boundary changes on remote areas

    Aligning the mens and womens sections of Clubs within the same Association and/or Region

    The feasibility of unifying mens and womens Associations.

    As part of the review a consultative process will be undertaken over the next few months to ensure key stakeholders are able to contribute to the review. Information has been distributed to all Clubs, Associations and Regions to provide them with the opportunity to contribute to the process. The procedure will be thorough and be guided by what is in the best interest of the sport of bowls with a report and recommendations to be submitted by the Committee to the Board with any changes to be implemented for Season 2011/12. As I have previously mentioned, Bowls SA is currently undertaking the process to develop an updated Strategic Plan for the organisation. One of the most important facets of this is stakeholder consultation. With this in mind, Bowls SA is looking to engage the members to ascertain their thoughts and provide them with the opportunity to contribute to the future of the sport. This is vital for the success of the planning process and I encourage every member to take the time to contribute. For further information please refer to the article on page 20.

    Many clubs have been celebrating special anniversaries and season openings over the last few months and I have had the pleasure of attending the Karoonda 50th, Holdfast

    General Manager Ben Scales, Vice President Kenn Rogers and I recently attended the Annual General Meeting of the Council of Bowls Australia in Melbourne. Congratulations to Brian Marsland OAM, a member of the Grange Bowling Club, on being re-elected unopposed as President of Bowls Australia and Barbara Klose from the Northern Territory on her re-election as Vice President.

    A major issue discussed by the Council was the decline in the number of registered members; a concern facing most sports. A graph was shown that demonstrated that each bowling club in Australia would need to attract at least three new members a year to stop this downward slide. However if we look at the overall number participating in our sport, including night owl and casual bowlers, the outcome is very different and shows a very positive future. The National Merchandising Program and the allocation of funds to each State and Territory was discussed and adopted. Did you know that the revenue from this scheme goes back into the States development programs?A very interesting morning was spent at the Western Bulldogs Football Club where their CEO Campbell Rose and senior management gave us an insight on how the club had gone from being significantly in debt, to a profitable multi million dollar business and communitiy hub. Some of the outside interests that will be based at this facility include the

    Victoria University who are establishing their Sports Science department that will work closely with the football department and a commercial indoor sports stadium. They are also in the process of building a child care centre.The Bowls Australia Board met with the Board of Bowls SA on Monday 26 October as part of a plan to meet regularly with State and Territories on a rotational basis.This provided an excellent oppurtunity for the Board to discuss with Bowls Australia issues facing the sport in South Australia and to hear about the future direction Bowls Australia is looking to take.

    A joint Bowls Australia / Bowls SA Forum, open to all members, was held at Holdfast Bay Bowling Club on Tuesday 27 October and it was disappointing that more members didnt take the opportunity to attend.

    I encourage clubs to visit the Bowls Australia website to access resources such as the Fit 4 Bowls program (see page 35) and the My Bowls option for clubs to set up their own website to keep club records and bowling achievements.

    Cool conditions didnt deter the country and metropolitan players from providing a great display of skills in the Schroeter, Kennedy and Under 18 Country v Metro Shield games at Encounter Bay Bowling Club on Sunday 25 October. The day coincided with the National Pink Bowls Day established to raise money for the McGrath Foundation and thanks to members the clubhouse was a vision of pink balloons and stunning pink table decorations. The players and spectators also wore pink clothing and ribbons and $510.30 was raised for this very worthy cause.The morning saw the country men almost pull off a win, however, they fell in a hole on the last two ends to go down 64 - 70.

    After lunch despite feeling like a siesta the country men put up a fight but were no match for the
