YMGCR Bowls Report June 21st, 2020


Change of Current Restrictions 

Good news for our Bowls members.

As from June 24th, 2-4-2 Open Bowls will return to our Club. A maximum of 40 players, 20 per green, will be allowed to participate on a first in best dressed basis. The entry list will be on the notice board near the Bowls Office, and members will be required to complete written registration before commencement of play.

For other days we will continue with existing arrangements until the end of June, when it is expected we will be able to return to normal use of the greens, however the existing sanitising and distancing rules will remain in place for an indefinite period.

Green Management 

To simplify the hand over to the new Committee on the 28th of June, Men’s Match Committee Chairperson, Danny McNeill will take over managing the use of the greens working closely with Green Keeper, Warrick Henderson.
