Dear Full Members

We are so much looking forward to seeing you all.

Monday 12th April 2021 at 9 am will be Set Up Day and many hands are needed, there will be some re-staining of the Clubhouse to be done and many jobs around the grounds, benches, equipment checks etc.

The formal cleaning that takes place in the kitchen may not be the same as we can’t use this until 17th May at the earliest. But we will cleaning, dusting and polishing.

The tennis courts are now open for restricted play and as members you do know you have every right to play if you wish. The gate code can be disclosed to you on request.

The first Roll up day will be 17th April but there will be no SPIDER nor will there be Presidents v Captains Day. The known fixtures are on the website but there are subject to change. Roll ups must still abide by social distancing rules.

Format of Play Organised sport Informal activity... Singles - Use of every rink ... Pairs - Use of every rink Triples / Fours - Play on alternate rinks. The ‘rule of six’ applies or two households. Any combination of formats may be played under the ‘organised sport’ exemption, however the maximum number of participants on a six-rink outdoor green at any one time should not exceed 24. Clubs with less or additional rink capacity may amend figures accordingly (average four people per rink) so long as they deem it to be safe. Equipment Try to avoid using shared equipment whenever possible.

The selection sheets for what games happen will be on the notice boards in the Changing Rooms for you to complete. 29th April is the first game at home against Walpole Bay but could be 3 triples at each site. TBC

No Catering, so bring your own drink and snack. The Kitchen is out of bounds until 17th May, however the Bar may be open occasionally if a Bar person is available for outside service.

Polling Day 6th May so no Roll ups allowed, TDC want to do a deep clean prior on the 5th May so some restrictions for Roll ups may occur then.

We hope the first Social Evening will be on Saturday 26th June OPEN TO ALL Bar, possibly bring your own food, BBQ?? We are still planning, make it a date.

Full members who are doing roll up’s must collect Social members fees for Bowls and issue a receipt at the time. There can be no more free go’s.
