The WCF and the hosts, CNZ, have been liaising regarding what balls to use at this event, given the current interruption in the supply of new Dawson Balls.
The decision is that we will use old Dawson balls, as closely matched as possible in condition and age.
The WCF are liaising with Paul Manwaring, owner of Dawson Balls. His current production problems have been caused by the banning of a substance previously used in the recipe. He is testing alternatives and hopes to have balls within specification soon.
At this time there are no other approved balls available. The SunShiny ball approval expired in 2020. The manufacturers in Taiwan have advised that balls are on their way to the CA for testing, so we hope to be able to re-approve these soon.
