***************************************************************************************************************************************************

Notice to all Bowls Club members (prospective and current) - especially those of you who play short mat.

We can begin to play short mat again, with winter membership available from 1st October for those of you who have not yet rejoined us for this year.  Only one mat will be available due to Covid restrictions.  Unfortunately, there will be no opportunity for our usual socialising in the Clubroom, which I know for some of us is an important part of the short mat season.

We propose to run competitions within the Club starting during the week beginnng 12th October.  Depending on demand, these will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with matches starting at 11.00am, 12.30pm and 2.00pm.  These matches can be pairs or triples but the required social distancing might be difficult with triples.  Before we can decide how we proceed we need to know: 

1. if you wish to enter a short mat competition;

2. if you wish to play pairs or triples; and 

3. which day(s) you wish to play - Tuesday and/or Wednesday.

Please let Mandy know asap.
