Bowlers and other interested bowling enthusiasts are asked to register their interest in a coach trip to the Australian Bowls Open at Darebin with the BDBD by Monday. Bookings need to be made to work out costings for the trip.

The first round of the women’s state triples is January 22, with entries to be received no later than Monday. Entry forms must be sent as soon as possible so the draw can be done.
Midweek pennant resumes on Monday with round 13.
Predictions for round 14 on January 14:
Avenue to benefit from home green advantage against Smeaton in division one.
Clunes will get up by a small margin in division two against Ballarat North.
Daylesford faces a tough game in division three against Webbcona. It is a must-win for Daylesford and that determination should get them across the line.
Division four ladder leader Smeaton should have the wood over Daylesford.
Rod Lindsay is BDBD secretary. Nora Thornhill is the assistant secretary.
