Goulburn Valley Bowls Division will discuss the possibility of cutting down division one of its Saturday pennant competition from 10 teams to eight.
GVBD president Maurie Rowlands said the idea had been talked about in bowls circles, but stressed it was an issue for club delegates to discuss at the next meeting on February 4.
‘‘It has been talked about, but it has to be determined by the clubs,’’ Rowlands said.
‘‘Until such a time comes that all the clubs have had the time to look at a motion, we won’t know anything.
‘‘Naturally, at the end of each year we look to see if there’s anything that can be done any better.’’
Rowlands said the upcoming meeting was a regular meeting of club delegates, which occurs five times a year, and offered a good opportunity to discuss the issue.
‘‘The opportunity at this time of year is to give all the clubs a chance to comment on what they would like to see going forward,’’ Rowlands said.
‘‘The meeting next week with all the delegates of the clubs will give us an indication of what they’re thinking, but it is certainly something to talk about.
‘‘The clubs are aware that it will be discussed, but we don’t know what each club thinks.’’
Rowlands did not expect any other major talking points ahead of the meeting.
‘‘There haven’t been any motions from other clubs, so I think it will just be a number of small things to talk about,’’ Rowlands said.
‘‘It’s just a regular meeting and there are no other issues of significance at this point.’’
