News

Limited rollups now allowed on the greens. Keep social distance rules. Disinfectant spray (for the mats) and handwipes for the jacks are in the Mat Box.

Special notice: all events cancelled including all meetings and social bowls. AGM to be advised later by our Board.

The board is monitoring the situation and will advise via this website when we plan to re-open. It is highly unlikely that this will happen before June but will depend on the spread of the virus and on government advice.

Being mostly of ‘senior’ age we need to be especially careful by keeping our distance and following the government recommendations. Be safe everyone.

Stop Press:
Our secretary has received information from LSEBA. On BowlsSA advice it is possible to delay an AGM for up to 6 months. This would make it up to 31 October for us. In the meantime current officers will remain in their positions. LSEBA suggest that we should complete the audit of our finances and circulate these to members where practical. At this stage Malcolm will get the audit done but we think the copy to members can wait until we know when the AGM will happen. Malcolm assures us that all is fine with our finances.

Selectors will most likely be chosen at the deferred AGM.

We are asked, if possible, to send in the number of Pennant Teams and Tournament Dates to Match and Programme. This will be difficult for our club to achieve as meetings of more than two people are discouraged.

The publication of the Club Programme Book will not be possible without the BowlsSA and LSEBA programmes.
