    Are the rules to the outdoor game online anywhere?
    Does anyone have a handy link?

    The Crystal Mark Law book edition 3 applies to indoor and outdoor codes,there should be a copy available in every club. I am sure i have seen a copy on line.

    Yeah, I have the book, but I was looking for an electronic copy

    Update: Like this: http://www.worldbowls.com/wp-content...sport_v3.1.pdf

    Interesting points:
    1) how, when searching, the last thing I'd look for is anything with the words crystal mark in it.
    2) The first search result back is from a bowls club rather than the issuing body (that says more about the lack of search engine optimisation by the issuing body and more about what a good SEO job the bowls club have done)

    Maybe me but I thought the obvious place to look would be the world governing body website

    Quiet right, Umpy - at least now that WB saw the light and provide the revised/up-to-date version on their website!

    The other caveat, of course, is that the one should always read the latest revised laws in the light of all recent WB laws decsions as shown on their website - as that can have a significant effect on interpretations, however one views them.

    If winning doesn't matter then why keep the score?
