A comprehensive coaching clinic for markers for singles games was held on Tuesday October 6, 2020 and NEDWBA President Nanette Jemmeson is to be congratulated for her expertise and willingness for club members to avail themselves of the skills of a competent marker. For instance, just say you were chosen to mark a State Singles match, would you be fully aware of all the things you needed to know? Would you know the correct way to indicate the distances between bowls and jack to the two players? Are you capable of knowing if the jack was thrown far enough? Have you got all the gear for marking and measuring the bowls? Do you know the correct way to answer all the queries from the two players without giving either one an advantage? All bowlers enjoyed and learned something from this exercise and appreciated the opportunity.
