With the relaxation of restrictions enabling us to have gatherings of 24 people we have been able to run 2 sessions of organised play on both Tuesdays & Thursdays. These are proving to be very popular with sessions being oversubscribed. If you are one of the unlucky ones who get ballotted out you will get a guaranteed slot the following week.
Those who are participating will have received email advice that they are “in” & a follow up text with their team members. This is the first stage of our move to on line bookings. It is a learning experience for us all but we will get there. While there is an option to cancel if the date no longer works for you, it would be appreciated by the organiser (currently Sandra) if you could acknowledge receipt of either the email or text. Then I can stop worrying as to whether everyone is going to turn up on the day.
Now that we can have gatherings of up to 24 we believe it is no longer necessary to run a booking system for casual play or practice. The same rules apply – sign in, use the sanitised mats & jacks, scrims unless Hamish advises otherwise. Club rooms may be accessed for collection of bowls & using the toilets only. Knightsbridge & Mayfair are unavailable for casual play on Tuesdays & Thursdays, but Harcourts Community Carpet Green is available at all times for double vaccinated players.
Unvaccinated or Undeclared members may use Rinks 6 – 9 on any day EXCEPT when there are organised games (either on the natural or carpet green). Currently organised games are on Tuesdays & Thursdays but from December Business House Bowls will be using the greens on Wednesday afternoons/evenings. Please note that unvaccinated or undeclared members no longer have access to the clubrooms or natural greens & surrounds.
Please also note that if vaccinated members join with undeclared or unvaccinated members they will be ineligible to play in any Double Vaccinated tournaments for a period of 7 days.
