Just to update everyone on the latest situation and proposal.
As you are now aware League Fixtures have been cancelled for the season however we are still hoping to have some Bowls and organise our Club Competition.
Mel is going to be talking to Dafen Welfare to get things moving on using the green.
We are hopeful of arranging time/days for sharing use of the Green by using just three rinks at any one time to maintain social distances, with only singles Play allowed firstly, moving to pairs when guidelines allow us to mix in greater numbers in the weeks ahead.
In order to prepare for the Club Competitions can you please let me have your names if you wish to participate in either by 30th June latest.
We propose to commence with and complete just the Singles first, but hopefully we will get to the Pairs Later.
AS stated all will be dependant on gaining access to the Green at Dafen
Following discussions over the past few months with the County Secretary, we had reached an unofficial agreement that, should restrictions have been lifted sufficiently to allow some sort of League programme, by July 1st 2020, then those Clubs that wished to participate would take part in organised matches.
Following recent guidance from The Welsh Assembly Government, Bowls Wales and the WBA regarding the reopening of Bowling Greens from this Monday and the continued restrictions on numbers and social distancing, it is quite clear that any type of League programme is not possible.
We have also taken into account views expressed by individual clubs, during lockdown. The League Management Committee has met, by e-mail, and recommends that the 2020 be officially abandoned.
Please respond with your agreement, or disagreement, as this is a decision that should be made by the Clubs.
Once a majority is received the County / League Website will reflect the decision
A separate e-mail will be sent to club secretaries who had made entries to the County Competitions
Please note even though the official closing date for entries is 31st March 2020 , anyone wishing to enter a singles/doubles/rink must inform me by no later than 17th February as I shall not be available to place the entry after that date.
