President Badge 2017

Bowls Scotland decided not to issue badges to club Presidents from 2011.

These badges indicated the year the club President was in office. Presidents were honoured to received them since it recognised their special year.

The Association decided that their Presidents should continue to receive this memento of their presidency. Consequently a badge has been ordered and when received will be issued to club Presidents.

Badges will either be posted to clubs or hand delivered by GBA Directors. Most badges will be presented at club opening days.
