2nd April 2021
The announcement from Mark Drakeford was helpful in that we have some provisional dates to work on, even if the detail may cause a few logistical problems for bowlers..
We can now confirm that the green will re-open on Monday 12th April and will be restricted to the use of only three rinks, each to be used by two bowlers (unless there are pairs each from the same household). The green will be closed each Tuesday morning until noon so that the green maintenance programme can be completed. As before, the online booking system must be used and previous passwords etc. will hold good.
Equipment for sanitisation of all mats, jacks etc. will be provided as before.
From 3rd May up to 30 people can use the green and league games will start. We have a provisional fixture list but conversations are still taking place as to how we adjust to the fact that we will not be able to allow each side to put out four teams of 4 as by doing so, the 30 person rule is offended. Requests to stretch the capacity to 32 people have been turned down by the Senedd. Hopefully we will get a definitive formula very soon.
Our Thursday night Club nights will recommence after 3rd May and I will send out more details nearer the time.
Our subscriptions will be as I set out in my previous note so for existing members the subscription will be a total of £70 and lower rates will be offered to potential new recruits. Please send cheques to Mike Jones or if you prefer to make an online payment, I can let you have the necessary details if you do not already have them.
In conjunction with the NAC, we have set out a programme of of repairs and improvements to the club grounds and pavilion and if you are happy to volunteer some time to help, please contact George Gibb to arrange a suitable time. Trust me, there's a lot to do!
Most members seem to be able to access at least one of the online sites to get up to date information, but if you know of anyone who is unlikely to be able to do so, please pass on the message.
It looks promising for a season which more closely resembles what we were used to ...
