Well the day has arrived when we can return to our bowling green! The green will be open from 1.00pm on Tuesday 23rd June although, because of the restrictions introduced because of the Covid-19 pandemic, games will have to follow a specific format.
Firstly all rinks have to be booked in advance and they will be offered in 2 hour slots commencing at 9.00am each day from Wednesday 24th June. The delayed start on Tuesday 23rd will be to allow green maintenance and in future weeks, sessions will start at 11.00am each Tuesday.
Bookings can be made via the website, caerleonbowlsclub.co.uk , following the appropriate link and at this stage only registered members of Caerleon Bowling Club (men’s and ladies’ sections) and of the Newport Athletic Club bowls club (NAC) WILL BE ABLE TO BOOK RINKS. As and when some of the restrictions might be lifted we will review access and options at that time.
Each game will be for 2 members only and only 3 rinks will be available. Strict hygiene controls will be enforced and full details can be found on literature at the Clubhouse and it will also be useful to look at the Bowls Wales website (bowlswales.com) where the rules and regulations of how the game can be played are set out very clearly. As a general guide we would like members to restrict their bookings to 2 a week but if it transpires that there are sufficient unused slots, it seems a shame not to use them! Let’s see how it works out.
Please note that you should not turn up at the Club more than 15 minutes before your allotted rink time and you must leave within 15 minutes of your game finishing. The clubhouse will be closed for access to change. Access to toilets will be permitted, one person at a time.
If you have difficulty in accessing the website to book a rink, contact another member to act as a “BUDDY” so that he or she can book on your behalf.
This is new territory for all of us so don’t be surprised if the system will need to be tinkered with to cope with individual needs….. but at least we can get back on the green and leave those poor weeds in our gardens alone for a while.
I look forward to seeing you on the green soon…social distancing permitting of course!
