The club is looking at the probability of holding a markers course during the 2019 season here at Devizes. With that in mind enquiries have been made regarding the minimum number required for a course to be viable and we are informed that the magic number is 30 for viability and max 32 for practicality.
The committee recognises that reaching that number is something of a tall order but Bowls Wiltshire indicate that they will advertise the event across Wiltshire with a view to topping up the numbers from other clubs. It would be great if we could reach 10 or more volunteers.
To those of you who were listed on the website as qualified please be aware that the three-year certification came to an end on the 31st December 2018 so you are no longer qualified.
The course is a one-day event and costs approx. £10 per person. The bowls committee would consider canvasing the management committee with a view to seeking full refunds for all who volunteer to take this qualification.
