A bowl has been delivered fairly wide. As it re-enters its own rink it contacts an opponent’s bowl which had been declared dead but left lying just outside the boundary line. As a result of the collision both bowls come to rest in their own rink.
What is the position with regards to each bowl?
The dead bowl must be removed. Law 17.4
The delivered bowl must be replayed. Law 126.96.36.199
A bowl in course is deflected by a spectator’s hat blown onto the rink and displaces the head to which it was played.
What should happen?
The bowl has been displaced by a neutral object. The Skips must agree on the replacement of the head and have the bowl replayed. If the Skips are unable to reach agreement on the replacement of the head they must declare the end dead. Law 188.8.131.52
