 A Few More Details Around Our Safe Return......... - from the manager

Upon our return to bowls (19th May) we will play on six rinks and Leagues will be triples play as is normal for the Summer Months.

We'll be open again on Wed 19th May and rinks for roll ups can be booked over the telephone from Mon 17th May 2021 from 10am.

This Summer (May - August) the club will open 8am - 8.30pm Mon & Tues and 10am - 8.30pm Wed to Fri. We won't be open at all at the weekend.

Assuming the Government Roadmap plan does not deviate, consideration will be given to reinstating the Bingo Evenings on a Wednesday night after 21st June 2021.

I have finalised the Summer Leagues for 2021 and will upload them to the website in the next few days.

Staggered start times will be in play once again to start with but we are hoping that after 21st June we can revert to two hour sessions on the half hour as before and that members can simply turn up and book rinks on the day. Government guidence will inform on that nearer the time.

From 19th May though, we will once again stagger the rink start times for League matches according to the rink your match is played on:

Rink One - will commence on the hour with Morning Leagues at 10am, Afternoon League matches 2pm and Evening games 6pm

Rink Two - Sessions/Matches will begin at 10 past the hour as appropriate

Rink three - Sessions/Matches will be 20 past the hour

Rink Four - Sessions/Matches will be at half past the hour

Rink Five - Sessions/Matches commence at 40 Mins past the hour

Rink Six - Sessions/Matches commence at 50 mins past the hour.

Rink fees should be placed to the plastic tubs at the bar end of the rinks prior to the start of the game and cards will be issued by the bar staff upon receipt of monies.

A reminder that Rink Fees are £4 per two hour session.

Multi-session cards can still be purchased at the bar to avoid handling cash when paying each time you play.

Mats and Jacks will be cleaned after each session by our facilitators who will be employed up to 21st June 2021.

No spectators will be allowed around the green prior to 21st June.

I am pleased to say that we have managed to renegotiate the return of the Grand Prix singles and the club will be open at 8am Mondays and Tuesdays for the Grand Prix, commencing 24th May 2021. Roll ups can be prebooked if there are any early birds out there!

We also aim to trial a new roll up theme with a 3 bowl Pairs Ladder at 9am on Tuesdays for 1 hour duration, open to people turning up in pairs or single players can draw for partners on the day. Further details on the News pages.

Howard Jarrold has kindly volunteered his expert coaching eye during these sessions and will assist anyone who wishes to benefit from advice.

I am still searching for one person to make up an Early Evening team this Summer - Please contact me on the club number (01522) 526237 if you can help or email me at danny@lincolnibc.co.uk

Later in the Summer we are planning a few changes to our website which will be announced in more detail very soon. Amongst the various changes we can enable members to access their own area of the site via a unique ID & password system and book their own rinks on line.

If anyone requires bowls or shoes from their lockers to play outdoors, please call me and we can arrange access.

See you Soon

DANNY

Management Committee Treasurer  
   - by Dennis Skayman

At the March Management Committee Meeting Betty Clark stepped down as committee treasurer. Our funds have been in Betty's safe and capable hands for a number of years and it's a wrench to lose her but our thanks go to her for the fantastic job she has done whilst in post.

We are pleased to announce that Brian Smith has kindly volunteered his services as a replacement Treasurer to the Management Committee and has been co-opted to the role at the Committee Meeting last week.

We thank Brian for his kind offer and look forward to working with him.
