In a time limit game the lead has rolled the jack out of bounds as the bell sounds. The leader’s side is
leading by one shot and the skip claims the game is completed as the bell has rung. The opposing player
objects and the umpire is called to resolve the dispute.
What is the decision?
In this instance the jack is not dead but improperly delivered. Law 10.1
The jack shall be returned and re-delivered by the opposing player who can reset the mat as in law 6.1.1
but must not play first. Law 10.2
A player deliberately measures the distance between the jack and some bowls by placing a foot between
the jack and the bowls before the skip delivers the bowl. The opponent objects to this.
What is the position?
No measuring shall be allowed before the end is completed. Law 23.3
