Dear Members, Friends & Supporters,

Deaf-Lawn-Bowls-NZ-1Here are the forms for you fill in the for 2015 International Deaf Lawn Bowls Championships to be held at Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Please make sure that you can afford the deposit. This must be done before 2013 Labour Weekend at Invercargill, as squads for men & women teams will be picked by selectors during the 2013 Labour Weekend tournament.

Please talk with your family, friends and any supporters about these forms if they want to come to Northern Ireland with the NZ Deaf Team. Supporters will get the same price for air fares as part of the group, but we need to know earlier rather than later as the cost will go up! Also please make copies of the forms and put them up at your Deaf Club.

Also please help find any sponsors through your area and try to get grants from your local Council and or any Foundation, but applications it must be made under “Deaf Lawn Bowls NZ” and let the secretary know.

There will be a special meeting held at Invercargill to talk about news of the Northern Ireland trip sometime after our AGM.

Any questions, please email or fax me directly.

Thank you.

Dennis Herrick
Secretary DLBNZ
