We are hearing of more and more bowlers testing positive for Covid-19 and clubs that needed to close to necessary decontamination as result. It important that we as bowlers understand why wearing mask and keeping social distance is part of regulations. Wearing your mask may feel restrictive for many on green. But it shows we care for our fellow bowlers. We need to act like we are Covid-19 positive when on greens. I have seen a few pictures of bowlers lowering masks. Rather change your mask halfway and take a small break. But keep social distancing when doing this. The following video explains why not only wearing mask during play is important but why keeping distancing, hand washing all form part of us doing your part. Ask about regulations for #return2play next time you visit greens. youtu.be/P27HRClMf2U

Congratulations. We have now been rolling up in Farnborough UK for 65 days and amassed an amazing 1,000 roll ups. Not bowls as we know it but it has been great giving members the chance to enjoy safe bowls in the open air. I still have fond memories of bowling on you green in its beautiful setting last year.

GOOD BOWLS PRACTICE GUIDELINES No visitors/spectators are allowed during phase 3 of lockdown. Once you’ve completed your Attendance and Screening Register, proceed to your rink immediately. a. During play I. A distance of at least 2 metres between players to be adhered to throughout the game. II. For tracking and tracing purposes, bowlers are not allowed to enter neighbouring rinks which are in play. Note, there is an area of No Man’s land between each rink. III. Always carry hand sanitizers with you. There are hand sanitizers on the banks should you not have your own. IV. There is one jack and one mat at each end. V. In a game of pairs, one team (skip plus lead) will be designated as the mat handlers. In a game of singles, each player will be designated one of the two mats. VI. Always sanitise hands after touching the mat. The virus can be carried on the soles of shoes. VII. The jack will not be delivered but placed (using one’s feet) at a length chosen by the winner of the previous end. VIII. Jack markers must be applied with aerosol sprays and not chalks. IX. At the completion of an end, bowls should be gathered by using ones’ feet. X. Each bowler, if playing with at least one other bowler, must sanitise his/her hands before each end. XI. Bowlers are not to touch anyone else’s bowls during play. XII. ‘Dead’ bowls can be removed by foot and should be set to one side. XIII. One scorecard will be provided for each rink. The effect of heat on score boards, as suggested by BSA, has not been proven. b. On completion of play Mats and jacks will be sanitised by the staff prior to each session. i. During morning games or at the end of “first session” games, leave mats and jacks on the bank. Staff will collect and sanitise appropriately. ii. At the end of an afternoon game, place the mats and jacks in the trolley. Sanitise hands. Staff, if available, will transport bowls equipment to and from the club house. iii. Players must leave the premises immediately after the game. 24/07/2020

This week is Round 3! If you have not yet handed in your prize donation please remember to bring it along this Friday!! If you haven’t joined in yet – it’s not too late! Come along and join in the fun! Date: Starting Friday 10th January 2020 and carrying on through to Friday 28th February 2020 (8 weeks in total).

Format: An open draw will take place (we’ll try to stick to trips and pairs) and we’ll play 10 ends. Your teams’ points on the night will become your personal points for that particular week. (If you’d like to play more ends you’ll be welcome to do so but your teams score at the end of the 10th end is what will be counted) The more you play, they higher your total points will be. If you miss a Friday no problem – you’ll just have to get your team to win more points the next time you do play so that your total continues to climb! At the end of the 8 weeks, the individual/s with the most points will get to choose their prize first, going on down to the player with the least points who will collect whatever remains.
