 NEW MEMBERS LEAGUE & 2020 SUBSCRIPTIONS - from the manager

Following on from our 'Get to Know the Club Day' last Saturday, we'll be inviting all of our newest members to participate in a League specifically designed for them to get them playing and get them used to the League format at LIBC. As it's for new members though, there will be less emphasis on winning so, a step on the ladder towards bowling in the Leagues for those who wish to eventually.

The Facilitators will contact their 'recruits' with details in the next round of telephone contact and full details will appear on the LINK UP noticeboard to the left of the bar.

Subscriptions are now being taken at the bar and for the very first time we have card payment facilities available (minimum spend £10)for member's convenience.

It won't have gone unnoticed that despite the massive costs incurred this year on renovating the bowling halls, our subscription prices remain the same for yet another year. This is only possible in the medium/long term if our members support the Community Lottery.
My sincere thanks to those who have signed up to this in support of LIBC. Every ticket makes a difference to us as a club and could win you up to £25000 each week! Please take a look at the link on our left hand menu if you haven't yet joined up.

Alternatively, if you're nervous about signing up over the net, there's a telephone Help desk facility where supporters can join over the telephone. Just call 01522 253888 and be sure to name LIBC as your chosen cause.


Even allowing for a huge cost this last year to make improvements to the bowls hall, the Club Directors have agreed that Annual Subscriptions will remain at their current levels for the year 2020.

In addition, all Playing Members paying their subscription on or before 31st December 2019 will receive the usual £5 discount.  

2020 Rates are as follows and can be paid from 6th November 2019

Paid On or AFTER
Full Member
(Under 65)
£35.00 £40.00
Senior Member
(65 & Over)
£33.00 £38.00
Social Member £15.00 £15.00
17/18 Years £10.00 £10.00
Junior Member
(to 16 yrs)
£1.00 £1.00
Locker £5.00 £5.00

Given our facilities, I’m sure our Members will agree that these prices represent outstanding value for money compared to other Clubs in the UK.

If Members do wish to assist the Club further it would be most appreciated if they would sign up for a weekly ticket(s) in the City of Lincoln Community Lottery stating the club as their supported cause. Leaflets on the bar or on the Target Board at the Car Park end of Rink 3.  

Sign up can be done on line or via the telephone on Lincoln 253888. There are currently 100 people supporting us, if we could double that number it would enable us to continue improving the club without the need to raise prices.

Utter nonsense  
   - by Howard Jarrold

Utter nonsense
If you have heard the rumor that new members who join league teams whilst attending the formal coaching sessions are excluded from those sessions, then please ignore those rumors for they are absolute rubbish. That is not the case and in fact the opposite is true. If you are attending the formal sessions please see the course through to the end.
We strongly advise that all members take advantage of the coaching opportunities that are on offer, and to this end a new initiative will start on Tuesday 26th Nov. at 12.30 and every Tues. thereafter.
The first hour will be given ove ....... ....... .......

Social Activities at LIBC  
   - by Danny Brown

The Club Committee would like to know what activities people are likely to attend if they were provided in the evenings at the Club.

As people are well aware, bowling in the evenings is becoming less and less popular among our current membership, but would you come along to the club if any or all of the following were on offer to you? We don't really want to close the doors so we're looking at some alternative activities to ensure we remain open and perhaps even show the club off to non members.

A Darts Team in the local league (Tuesday nights) playing other pubs & clubs home and away? ....... ....... .......
