PRESIDENT VERSUS CAPTAIN TRIPLES COMPETITION

On a glorious sunny morning 5 rinks contested  the competition.  The President's Team triumphed by 4 rinks to 1.  Rink 1 was the overall winning rink.  It was good to see spectators able to join us.The event ended over butties and drinks in the club room, and the time to sit together and chat was enjoyed by everyone.  

BOWLS BIG WEEKEND


On Saturday 29th May we were delighted to welcome 16 people to try out bowls.  They were assisted by 13 club members and the office receptionist and a good time was had by all in lovely weather, we hope they will return and join  us in the future,

FROM 17TH MAY

Bowls - relaxation of some restrictions from Monday 17th May.  Return to Play: Step 3

Information taken from the Bowls England (BE) website published on 10th May, and adapted for Totton & Eling BC.

The two main points in the introduction to a lot of detail are:

  1. All restrictions on formats and numbers for organised activity under the jurisdiction of Bowls England will be removed.
  2. Car sharing, spectators and indoor hospitality will be permitted.

What does this mean for our members at Totton & Eling?

Masks must continue to be worn and hands sanitised when entering the building.  Masks can be removed on the green and its surrounds.  30 bowlers can play at any one time.  

BE advise players to continue to avoid using shared equipment whenever possible and to use your own mat/jack during any session.  However, as most of us are sharing equipment, for example jacks/mats/pushers, we must continue to practise strict hand hygiene including sanitisation before and after using any shared equipment (and during use if desired). Should measuring be necessary, players (or marker if used) must use their own measure.  You should NOT handle woods other than your own.

Scorecards, when required, to be used by one person only. Chalk is spray chalk only.  Scoreboards are optional, and the GPC has agreed that they can be used in competitions and NF League fixtures provided that all hygiene and sanitation guidance is observed.

Spectators are allowed but must adhere to social distancing rules.

Car sharing is permitted at the discretion of individual drivers and passengers.  Our advice is, if car sharing, wear a mask and ensure a good flow of air from outside.

Changing room use remains unchanged – one person only at a time and to be used only for collection and return of kit.  You must continue to change shoes outside.

The bar can be open for drinks after League matches but it is table service only.  The way that this will operate will be explained to players before the start of each match.  The kitchen will remain closed, but can open after play on Monday and Friday mornings if one or two members are prepared to accept responsibility for being in the kitchen and ensuring full hygiene compliance – details available from Mandy. A lady member will open the kitchen in a Covid secure way after play on Tuesday mornings.

If there is any further information published before 17th May we will let you know.  At Step 4 (Monday 21 June at the earliest), BE expect all restrictions to be lifted and will update its guidance once the government has confirmed the country is moving to Step 4 (a decision is expected on Monday 14 June).

Steven Brice, on behalf of the GPC, 13th May 2021.
