Bowls Notes 6th July 2020

posted 5 Jul 2020, 21:08 by Bowls Committee
Welcome to the Bundaberg Bowls Club Inc. July Newsletter.
A big welcome to new bowlers who have joined our Club recently and also the bowlers from other
Clubs who have been participating in our Roll Ups during Stage 1 and Stage 2 Covid-19 period
this year.
I hope you are all well and looking forward to Covid-19 Stage 3 playing Social and Competitive
bowls again. There have been changes by Bowls QLD and the Chief Health Officer; we can now
50 bowlers on each Green per session (i.e. 100 bowlers per session)
During next week there will be no changes but the following week from 10 July it will be back to
normal playing on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday starting at 12.30 p.m. until September or so.
Green Fees will be $10.00 a player.
Game nominations will be by phone each day from now. Phone John Clough on 0419643079.
There will be Nomination Sheets available in the Club on Game Days for the following week.
Keep in mind that we will be catering for Bundaberg Club members and Bargara Club members
who are without a home until late this year. Bargara members have supported us well during the
Covid-19 Period and just wish to continue that support into the future. Depending on numbers,
most games will be Triples but there may be some Pairs games. We are hoping to get both
Greens full on most bowling days. All social days will be Mixed Bowls but at times there will be
Competition Bowls too. Bargara Bowls Club will be organizing their own Competition Bowls
and will fit in with us.
Also if you are not feeling well before your nominated session let John know early so he can fill
your place with another bowler. Dress Code is Mufti or otherwise on Social Days and Money

Eye Clinic sponsored $420.00 Money Day. Then on the 30 July Bundaberg Marineland will
