Northern Rivers bowls clubs protest against fee increase

ELEVEN clubs at a Northern Rivers district delegates' meeting have unanimously carried a motion that has sent a letter of protest to Bowls NSW over its near 30% increase in capitation fees.

The letter has gone to the RNSWBA president and the chief executive officer.

District secretary Bob Adams said the motion at the meeting indicated a willingness to pay a $3 increase in line with previous years but objected to the rise from $46 to $60 that would come out of the fee bowlers paid to be a club member.

The meeting also suggested that all clubs join with those that already had sent individual protests. Bowler petitions also were suggested.

The NRDBA secretary said Tweed-Byron also had protested to state headquarters.
