SATURDAY'S return of the Bendigo Bowls Division pennant season has been called off because of heat.
The pennant season was set to resume on Saturday for the first time since December 7 with round 11.
However, because the forecast temperature is for more than 38 degrees, the BBD has evoked its heat policy.
Division one games were to have been: Golden Square v Castlemaine; Eaglehawk v Kangaroo Flat; South Bendigo v Bendigo; and Bendigo East v Inglewood.
Sunday's Provincial Championship at Bendigo East has also been cancelled.
