Competitions 2020

Due to the unprecedented circumstances this year there will be changes to how the club competitions will be scheduled and played.
Currently there are strict guidelines on social distancing which we all need to follow so currently there is no entrance into the clubhouse and only a limited number of rinks are available.
For this reason the number of ends played for some competitions have been reduced and the number of competitions have also been reduced.
However, the bowls committee believes many of our members would still enjoy having some club competitions this year so the following changes will be implemented:
There will be no entry fee or prizes and winners names will not be recorded on the competition boards.
Members who would like to enter for the competitions will need to complete the online Competition Entry Form by 26th July.
You will find the online Entry Form by selecting the same link as for booking a rink.
Where the selection tabs for selecting Top or Bottom green are located there is a small right facing arrow. Select this and it will take you to a selection tab for Competition Entry Form. Please complete by entering your name and entering an ‘X’ under the competitions you want to enter.
Any problems you can contact Sheila Garlick on 01380 730175 or Lynn Hicks on 01380 726116 with your selection.
The draw for the competitions will be posted online by the 1st August.
All entrants must make their own arrangements and book a rink on the top green accordingly using the online booking sheet. The normal rule of who is ‘on top’ and provide three dates does not apply. It is for both parties to make contact and arrange an agreeable date and decide who will make the booking.
When booking a rink for a competition game on the top green please refer to the Rules of Play section below to see how many sessions to book. Any games not completed by the ‘play by date’ will be chosen by drawing out names to decide who goes forward into the next round.
Please note due to the restrained time factors this year the ‘ play by dates’ will need to be adhered to.
No markers will be required for any of the games except the Rose Bowl and Gents Championship competitions. NOTE these two competitions are subject to minimum entrants in order to be played.
Entrants to keep a score record of their own games.
Winners of each game to contact Sheila Garlick or Lynn Hicks on the day of play so it can be recorded on the online ‘next round’ sheet to allow other winning members to start making arrangements ASAP.
