 LATEST - LINCOLN IN TIER 3 - from the manager

Sadly with Lincolnshire scheduled to continue out of national lockdown into tier 3 we will not be able to restart bowling indoors yet.
Keep active, look after yourselves, stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Covid-19 secure facilities when we are allowed to reopen.
More information will follow regarding annual subscriptions etc next week.

When we eventually re-open the following plan will be activated:

a) All un-played (lost) League Matches will be cancelled and teams awarded 1pt and 10 shots each for every game lost. A further round of fixtures will be scheduled for March/April in the Morning, Afternoon and Early Evening Leagues and Captains advised of dates upon re-opening.

b) Competition Rounds will be readjusted upon return so that all games can be played during the remaining programme.

c) Unless we are advised otherwise, whilst Lincoln is in Tier 1 the Club Alert Level will return to 4b upon re-opening allowing for League games to recommence with all current restrictions still in place. The match calendar as it is currently scheduled will recommence on the date of opening.

We are indebted to those members who are paying subscriptions early and to those generous enough to contribute donations in addition to their annual fees. Some of the sums I have received have been overwhelming and we thank those people for their kindness and generosity which will go a long way to maintaining our reserves to see this battle through!

So far the members have raised the staggering sum of £14,665
and it is heartwarming to know that the club plays such a part in people's lives that they see fit to donate this money to help ensure it's survival. THANK YOU ALL.

Thank you too for your understanding and co-operation and we look forward to seeing you again very soon.

Please keep an eye on this page for further announcements and details of the club's re-opening.

A statement from the Governing Body (EIBA Ltd) is provided via the link at the foot of this page.

BOSTON BOWLS VISIT FOR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING  
   - by Danny Brown

We have asked Mark and Carol if they would like to set up at the club before Christmas to allow members to shop for any bowls related pressies they may have planned. This will be the first and only time they have visited us this season.

Assuming we return beforehand, we have booked Thursday 10th & Friday 11th December 2020 as the dates they will be on site.

In line with our safety measures, we will strictly control the number of people in the 'shop' which will set up at the far end of the restaurant to allow a one way system in and out.

Please add the date to your diary and I will upd ....... ....... .......

Belated Over 60s Finals 2019/20  
   - by Danny Brown

The Over 60s Section is determined to finish last season's competitions and a finals programme has been worked out to accommodate all the outstanding competition finals carried over from March 2020.

Some of the competitors are choosing not to play bowls whilst Covid-19 is an issue, and we must respect their right to do so. To get around such issues it has been necessary to make slight adjustments to the teams/formats in some of the triples and fours competitions which will obviously be for this season only.

In accordance with the Club's recent contingency statement, should we be forced t ....... ....... .......

ACTION PLAN TO ENSURE FINANCIAL STABILITY  
   - by Danny Brown

Dear Members,

We would all agree that the world is currently a vastly different place! Those of you who have returned to the club since lockdown have witnessed first-hand our efforts to adapt our game, whilst offering members the opportunity to socialise and enjoy their bowls in a safe environment. You may also have noted that we have been careful to operate efficiently, closing the club during our quieter periods. It should be emphasised that the club is in no immediate danger and we wish to remain open for our members but alongside increased costs, our income is greatly reduced due to Nat ....... ....... .......

Covis Steering Group Update - Monday 12th October 2020  
   - by Danny Brown

The steering group will now meet via Zoom on a Monday night.

At this week's meeting it was acknowledged that there is a need to improve on social distancing at the point players alight the bowling green after playing their matches. Very often the entire rink is trying to share one bench and all of the great efforts people have made during the game to adhere to the 2m rule are sometimes undone in this brief period!

Given that the staggered Match starting times are working very well, it was agreed that the time is now right for reinstating member's locker access - PROVIDED THAT THE GUIDEL ....... ....... .......
