2016 National Training Squad - 01/02/20016
There is a slight delay in invitations for this year’s National Training Squad being sent out due to a few amendments that require finalising prior to release. This needs to happen so eligible bowlers know what is expected of them. The updated policy had been agreed in principle by the Board and should be out before the end of the week.
2016 Membership Numbers - 01/02/20016
From 1 January 2016 TBNZ is changing the way membership numbers are issued. Up until now bowlers received a different number each year when they paid their membership fee. From the above date a bowler will retain the same number each year, provided their membership fees are up to date, and TBNZ will only need to update address/phone number details when they have changed.
This change should eliminate duplication on the register and also assist bowlers to remember their numbers!

30 Year Milestone for the Ballcrushers League - 29/01/2016
Congratulations to the Ballcrushers League on this amazing achievement. This is a good reminder that league bowling is fundamental to the success of our sport.
BALLCRUSHERS LEAGUE EST 1986 BOWLAND PETONE
On Tuesday 26th January 2016 our Ballcrushers League here in Lower Hutt commenced for the New Year. The significance of this is that it is 30 years since being established.
We started in Petone as 4 bowlers per team but over the years have been reduced to 3. New Zealand Rail wanted the Petone land so the owners moved the Centre to Lower Hutt.
One of our Centre League coordinators then was Kerry Richmond and our Centre League Coordinator now is …….. Kerry Richmond, he also bowls in our League and is our Treasurer.
Our Historian and Record Keeper in 1986 was Boyce Wong and our Historian and Record Keeper now is ……. Boyce Wong.
This makes Boyce one of our Founder Members of which there are only 2. The other bowler is Marion Gunn who has been our President for many years.
We are planning a reunion by way of a get together and dinner on Saturday 19th November this year so if there are any bowlers who bowled in the Ballcrushers League and would like to email me I will add you to our list of interested bowlers.
I know there are hundreds of bowlers using Facebook so could I please ask you all to put our invitation on your Facebook page.
Thanks, I look forward to hearing from any interested bowlers.
