BowlsLink Process for 2020/21 season
ATTENTION ALL CLUB ADMINISTRATORS / PRIMARY CONTACTS / CHAIRPERSONS OF SELECTORS AND SIDE MANAGERS.
For MPBR (Inc) Pennant Season 2021 / 2022 all teams and results will be entered in the BowlsLink system only.
THERE WILL BE NO MANUAL SYSTEM
This means that no Pennant Check Forms will be completed.
- 1. Side Managers will only need to complete scorecards.
- 2. Rink draws and shuffle of the cards will happen prior to the game, as before
- 3. It is imperative that the scorecards are retained after the game is completed, they may be required if there is a disputed entry.
In the event of a dispute, the on-line BowlsLink Pennant Match Review Request must be completed. This electronic form is found on the Bowls Victoria Website www.bowlsvic.org.au / pennant / regional pennant / pennant results dispute, and must be completed on-line.
- 4. At the end of the game the two Side Managers must sit together, the Home team Side Manager entering the results into BowlsLink. They must ensure that the Skips are matched and all players are shown correctly. Any adjustments must be made prior to finalising the game.
The Away team Side Manager needs to ensure that the entries are correct before the Home team Side Manager finalises.
On the Bowls Victoria Website www.bowlsvic.org.au / club assist / education and training, there is a training webinar “Side Manager Role Explained” which takes you through the process. Side Managers will only be expected to enter match results.
There have, however, been some changes to BowlsLink since this webinar was made, namely, the Away team Side Managers are no longer required to “Confirm” the results.
Prior to the first game when Club Administrators / Primary Contacts are entering players for the first game, they must ensure that the Side Managers (who will be entering the scores), have been authorised to “Manage the entry”.
If you are unsure how to do this, re-look at the webinar www.bowlsvic.org.au / club assist / education and training, “Side Manager Role Explained”.
Prior to commencement of the MPBR (Inc) Pennant season, all Side Managers must sign into BowlsLink and create their own Passwords.
Once you get started it really isn’t too hard, Good luck (if you really have a problem, you can give me a call).
