Hi To All Members
It has been some time since the Club asked members to advise if they would play pennant this year. Lots have happened since then and as you all know now, that pennant season for this year will be commencing on January 12th for Midweek and January 16th for Saturdays. This means that there will only be 9 rounds this year. Each game comprising 21 ends straight through and no afternoon tea breaks. We are again asking members to reconsider their opinions if they will represent the Club in pennant in 2021, especially if you had previously indicated not playing pennant for this season.
At present there will be a maximum of 5 games away and we can look at transport arrangements for this as time goes along. Maybe two persons per car but this will be determined along with COV restrictions. One good piece of news that has come through today is that while playing a game of bowls face masks do not have to be worn while playing. However, you must don your face mask prior to playing and on completion of play. This means you must have your face mask with you at all times.
We are looking at having an opening practice drills on Sunday 1st November at 11am followed up with pennant practice commencing on Monday 9th November for Midweek at 2.30pm and from Friday 13th November for Saturday players, commencing at 3pm.
I am asking members to once again submit your intentions re playing Midweek, Saturday or both to email@example.com so as we can decide how many teams to enter for this season. We have until mid-November to decide so please send your intentions soon.
We do need more players and I am hoping you will give this your utmost consideration.
Just a reminder to full members, the entries closing date for Men’s & Women’s 2-Bowl Singles and M& W Presidents Handicap matches is next Sunday 18th October.
From there, the Match Committee will publish the draw for all events. Matches to be conducted by players at a convenient time of their choosing. Matches to be completed prior to Finals scheduled for Sunday 6th December.
Entry sheets are posted inside Clubhouse, near Tournament office.
