 COVID TIER SYSTEM IMPACT ON CLUB OPERATIONS - from the manager

Lincolnshire is currently in Tier 1 of the government's Covid Tier System. As far as we are aware, there are no immediate plans for Lincoln to be placed to a higher Tier.

It would be remiss of us as a Club however, not to consider all possibilities, especially given the speed with which these announcements are made.

First of all, the Club Directors wish to make it clear that whilst we are in Tier 1, any persons living inside the Tier 2 and Tier 3 areas SHOULD NOT travel for matches at the Club. Anyone known to live in these areas who enters will be asked to return home.

It is important that captains check their team rosters to ensure that no player that may reside in a tier 2 or 3 area is scheduled to play for the time being.

What would it mean for the Club if the Tier level changes?

TIER 1 (Current state) :
The club can continue playing League Bowls so we proceed as normal. Members in Tier 2 & 3 Areas should take responsibility NOT to travel to the club.

TIERS 2 & 3:
A move to a higher Tier would only allow the club to provide casual bowling for single players (or single households) on a rink. League and Competition Bowling (all fixtures) would therefore be suspended immediately. The Directors have agreed that this makes the club unviable from a trading position and would therefore CLOSE THE CLUB until Lincoln returned to Tier 1.


What would happen to the fixture programme in the event of a Tier 2/3 Club Closure?

This scenario has already been considered at both Director and Club Committee Level and solutions agreed. The following plan would be activated in the event of a closure:

a) Unplayed League Matches would be cancelled and teams awarded 1pt and 10 shots each for every game lost.

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

c) Upon re-opening, the Club Alert Level will return to 4b allowing for League games to recommence with all current restrictions still place. The match calendar would recommence on the date of opening as scheduled currently.

If the club has to close, it is important that everyone knows the plan for a return to competitive bowling when allowable. Please ask for clarification when next in the club if any of this is unclear.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

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

Club League Tables update  
   - by Dennis Skayman

Club League Tables update

With league games now assigned to a set rink at different start times it is throwing a spanner in the works of our current league website software.
Danny has worked hard producing captain sheets manually and if anyone requires an updated sheet ask at the bar.
Meanwhile he is working on either getting the current software updated or producing a manual system to input league results and produce league tables for this season.
He is hoping to have something in place by early next week so be patient.

Reminder of league formats for this season
