This will be the last newsletter before the winter season starts on Monday, 21st. For those of you who are not familiar with the new Covid etiquette for bowling at the club, please make sure that you read the “ winter bowling etiquette “ in Newsletter 18, on the web site and on the tables at the club. This is so that we can continue to bowl in a safe environment. We have spent a lot of time and effort covering every aspect necessary to comply with the new Covid code. All we ask is that you make every effort to follow them. The summer indoor bowlers have been very happy with the arrangements and have enjoyed their bowling. Long may this continue.
During this coming week, the trophies for the winning teams of last winter season will be placed at the end of the appropriate rink for collection. Because of these uncertain times, we will not be holding a presentation evening so we are doing it this way. We can but hope that, next year, we will be able to congratulate the winners of this coming season properly.
I was hoping to announce the names of those in the club finals but, due to a couple of reasons, there are some changes yet to be finalised. The different finals are to be held on 27th September, 17th October, 24th October and 1st November. As soon as the final participants have been finalised, I will make it known. As with all competitions, those taking part would appreciate support. Apparently the Nationals will be going ahead, as planned.
The good news for our club is that Sandy Kerr has come forward to take over from Bob Marsden as Competitions Secretary. Thank you, Sandy.
Last year Campbell McColl organised the Wednesday night Interclub which was very successful. I’m pleased to say that he has done so again this year and that there are the same number of teams taking part – 11. Thank you, Campbell.
The 200 Club winners for May are:
1st prize – Peter Hanks
2nd prize – Jean Baines
3rd prize – Anne Smith
Snowball – Ivor Harrington
Please can all the winners give Kath their bank details so that she can transfer your winnings.
Since the bar will be open on the evenings when the club is open, protective screens have been erected today at both ends of the bar where the tills are. As in a pub, it will be necessary to respect social distancing while at the bar. Please read the signs at the bar since the tills have different purposes.
Each time I start the newsletter, I wonder how I’m going to fill it but I seem to manage it in the end.
Be responsible, stay safe and enjoy.
