THE Western Bowling Association will be using the 2014 Pennants Championship as the selection ground for the annual East versus West clash.
The association hosted its Pennants Championship sponsored by Islands Electric Wholesalers late this year with Sheraton coming out as victors.
Sheraton had Curtis Mar, Arun Kumar, David Aitcheson and Samuela Tui. Western Bowling Association secretary Santok Singh said they would hold a meeting soon to decide their calendar.
Santok said the aim was to start their competition early.
"Bowls Fiji has released its calendar," he said.
"Now we will look at the free weekends and then slot in our games.
"This year we started the Pennants Championship in September. Obviously that was too late and Rakiraki failed to join the competition. "
Santok said they would give the clubs ample notice next year.
"By starting the Pennants Championship early, time will be on our hands to also prepare better for the annual meet.
"We will also include the women's teams from the affiliated clubs and would like to thank our sponsor Raymond Singh for all the support this season."
