From the Club Chairman  - Important update - September  2021


We are once again proposing to set up four leagues over the winter period 2021-2022 as follows:

 
1.         Pairs League (Planets) on a Tuesday morning at 0930hrs, where teams of at least 3

           players will be drawn out of a hat.
 
2.         Triples League (Towns) to be played on a Wednesday Morning at 0930hrs,
 
3.         Pairs League (Poets) to be played on a Thursday afternoon  at 1400hrs.
 
4.         Triples League (Countries) to be played on Friday evening at 1830hrs.


 

It is hoped that there are at least 8 entries per league this will fill the rinks and prevent “Bye” weeks.
 
It is foreseen that the leagues will commence from 20th September and run until the week ending 31 March 2022. This will allow the maximum number of games to be played over the season.
 
Team Captains who wish to play in any of the leagues with the exception of the Tuesday Planets league are asked to complete a registration form (attached below) so that the schedule can be published
as soon as possible prior to the end of the outdoor season.  
 
At this stage it is not necessary,  but would be helpful to list all members of their respective team.  


The Competition Secretary will contact team captains at a later date to complete the form, we just need to know team entry numbers so that leagues and fixtures can be set up early and play can commence immediately after the close of the outdoor season.
 
Those members wishing to play in the Tuesday Planets league should sign their names on the sheet displayed on the club notice board or send me an email stating you wish to enter.
 
Please note that beginners and members who don’t participate in leagues are normallyareencouraged to take part, you will gain invaluable experience, have fun and develop your bowling skills.
 
Those members who cannot get a team together but wish to play in any of the leagues should complete an entry form and the Competitions Secretary will put individuals into a team.
 
You should note that this year, the normal entry fee is not required and all entries are free.


The entry form is attached, if you are unable to print it off  copies are available in the bowls hall.

Warmest Regards

Wally

From the Club Treasurer -Important update - August 2021

Dear Members

I hope you are all well and looking forward to your indoor bowls this coming winter.

Your Subscription for 2021 - 2022 is now due. An application/renewal form is attached for you to print if you so wish. Further forms are available in the Bowls Hall.

The subscription has been set at £20 for individuals and £32 for couples living at the same address.

Please make your payment by cheque or electronic transfer. Sorry, no cash, please.

Some good news is that your Committee has agreed that entry into all club competitions (leagues and knockouts) for our 2021/22 season will be free of charge. It is hoped that this will encourage more of you to enter these competitions.

Could I please ask that you let me know if you will not be renewing your membership. This will stop me chasing you for payment and I will remove you from my mailing list.

Other matters:

It is anticipated that League Competitions will begin week commencing 20th September 2021. Entry forms will be available in the next day or two.

 

We have missed two Annual General Meetings due to Covid 19. A catch-up AGM has been planned for Tuesday 5th October 2021 at 6.30 pm in the Bowls Hall.

Full details and nomination forms will be displayed on club notice boards in the near future. Your Committee feels that now is a good time for some 'fresh blood to come on board' so you are asked to consider putting your name forward. Help and advice will always be available from existing committee members.

 

Rink Fees remain at £3.40 per session. Again, no cash, please. We will continue with the existing ticket system with most members purchasing 5 for £17 or 10 for £34 with payment by cheque being favoured. Committee members can make these tickets available for sale at the start of most sessions.

One Hour practice sessions have been charged at £1.50; as of today this fee has been increased to £1.70 and members will be put on trust to 'pay' one ticket of £3.40 on every second occasion.

I look forward to seeing all of you in the very near future.

Best Wishes

Tom Muir
