BOWLS NEWSLETTER: JULY 2020

CONTRIBUTIONS FOR FUTURE NEWSLETTERS SHOULD BE SENT TO OUR EDITOR: KEN HOMEWOOD

WE ARE OPEN FOR BOWLING

The green has been open since 23rd May and we have now opened the toilets for access up to 6pm. Full details of how you may use the Green under Social Distancing rules are available on the website. For traceability reasons please ensure you book rinks via our website or, for roll-ups, you enter your name in the folder in the cabin.
The take up has been disappointing although it must be said that the weather changed for the worst shortly after we opened the green.
As you will have seen from the ā€œEā€ mail recently circulated to all bowls members, we have re-introduced the 6pm to 8pm Monday club night and have extended the toilet opening until 8pm for Monday evenings. Members coming to the club night or any of the other roll-ups should arrive so that bowling can commence promptly at the time designated.
We have also introduced a round robin singles competition and, as we already have 8 bowlers wanting to enter, it will definitely proceed. It will be a handicap singles competition, open to both Ladies & Gentlemen, with first to 21 shots OR after 2 hours. We will arrange mini league/s with the winners & runners up playing a knockout. Matches to played at your own convenience. Anyone wishing to play in this competition please contact me by Friday 3rd July as I aim to start the competition from Monday 6th July.(kenhomewood@live.com or 01483-282384)

PROTECT YOURSELVES
We now have a hand sanitizer mounted by the door to the cabin so please use it when entering the cabin.

FUTURE RELAXATION of LIMITATIONS DUE TO CORONA VIRUS
Your committee is constantly reviewing any changes to Government/Bowls England restrictions and will advise ALL members as soon as we can relax the restrictions. At this time we are operating under Social Distancing rules which are available on our website.

BONUS BALL
The winners of the Bonus Ball since the last Newsletter were:
Week 8:  Marion Andrews with number 33
Week 9:  Ron Hadingham with number 42
Week 10: Ken Homewood with number 13
This ends the Bonus Ball draws for this year. I am sorry if you were not one of the lucky winners but there will no doubt be another chance next season! Thank you all very much for your support for the Bowls section and thank you to Malcolm and Jenny for organising it.

INDOOR BOWLS
We have confirmed a date for our indoor friendly at Mole Valley on Saturday November 14th with a 2 pm start and light tea to follow. More details will be issued nearer the date.

KEEP IN TOUCH
Although we have opened the green some members do not feel able to participate at this time for various reasons. It is nice to keep in contact. A phone call can brighten up the day for people on their own so try to phone members when you can. Above all keep fit and be optimistic.
