Fixed Fees Are on the Way

Article excerpt

BOWLS NSW's new fixed fee reg-istration for clubs that comes into effect next June excludes Bangalow, Cudgen Leagues, Grafton RSL and South Grafton Ex-Services temporarily.

They will be due to pay the fee the following February-March.

This was reported by state councillor Ron Woodward to the Ballina meeting of Zone One delegates and executive committee.

He said clubs had been issued with invoices showing how many members they had at May 30 this year. The Bowls NSW board was to review the figures in the next few months, in time for the clubs to finalise what fees they charge members.

Information sheets on 'pay-as-you-play' systems had been forwarded to clubs for their consideration. The sheets were prepared with the requirement that clubs should register all bowlers -- social, casual, corporate, barefoot and competition.

"There is no doubt that there is a lot of misconception by club committees in respect to the fixed fee and the ratifications of the introduction of the module," the state councillor told the zone.

"The basis of the module is to have all clubs have their own independent membership structure/fee and to register all players with Bowls NSW."

He said the fixed fee would rise only in line with the CPI (Consumer Price Index) each year.
