Whilst we are in Tier 3 we are prevented from opening the Club.
At a meeting this week, the club Directors discussed the impact of the various Tiers and decided that the club should remain closed until such time as we are in TIER ONE. This protects our staff and members and ensures that the club is trading viably when it finally opens it's doors for play and social activities.
All of our staff will remain on furlough whilst the club is closed.

A staggering total now in excess of £15,000 in Member donations since lockdown in March has played a significant part in keeping the club financially stable throughout the pandemic and we really do appreciate every penny that has been raised by our wonderful members.

As we approach annual membership renewal time a lot of you are asking about paying subscriptions to the club which fall due at the end of December 2020. At a time when we obviously have no income at all, the payment of subscriptions will ensure that we have income enough to pay our overheads through to re-opening and set us up for a full scale return to competitive bowling as and when appropriate. The club will be in a satisfactory position financially and we can begin to recruit again and promote our great sport.

We realise only too well that you have all had very little bowling for your money this year but we do hope you will stick with us as we look towards returning to some sort of normality very soon.

League entries for Summer and Winter will be available from February, whether we are open or not at that point, and you can be assured we are planning for a full scale return from the Summer onwards (and hopefully much sooner if circumstances allow)!

PLAYING MEMBERSHIPS (both FULL and SENIOR) are all £50.00 this year and will be reviewed next year again.
JUNIOR MEMBERS remain £1.00
*SOCIAL MEMBERSHIPS remain at £15.00
LOCKERS remain at £5.00

*As soon as it is safe to do so, the club will reinstate BINGO on Wednesdays and Saturday evenings - we know you are missing this!

There are three ways in which members can pay subscriptions:

1. Direct Bank Transfer
Contact Danny via email ( or telephone the usual club number 01522 526237 (which is now diverted) and request bank account details. If you pay this way please send a further email when you pay so that we can track payment via our statement. Your annual membership form will still require signing for data protection purposes but will be filed and can be signed upon re-opening.

2. In Person
From next Wednesday 9th December 2020, the club will be manned on a Wednesday afternoon 12 – 4pm and a Saturday morning 9am – 12 noon for members to pay their subscriptions BY APPOINTMENT ONLY to avoid more than one household at each visit. Payments can be made by card, cash or cheque.
Members can sign their annual membership forms.

To make an appointment you must call the club on 01522 526237 and you will be given an appointment time on a Wednesday or a Saturday of your choice.
You should arrive promptly (no more than 2 or 3 minutes early) and park in the staff car park.
Enter the Hall Drive entrance lobby and ring the buzzer to announce your arrival. A member of staff will deal with your subscription at the door.
Please wear a face covering and don't forget your membership cards.

3. By Post
Post or drop off a cheque through the letterbox at the club. Postal applications can be sent to Lincoln IBC, Hall Drive, Lincoln, LN6 7SW and will be dealt with the following Wednesday or Saturday.

Members can pick up their receipts and cards when we re-open and sign their annual membership renewal forms which will be filed at the bar awaiting signature.

If anyone has any further concerns or queries, please call the usual number and you can speak to Danny.

Our thanks again to you all for your generosity and understanding and we look forward to seeing you all again as soon as possible.

   - 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 ....... ....... .......

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 ....... ....... .......
