Tier 3 Restrictions

With the announcement today that Lancashire has moved into Tier 3 restrictions, we have had to take the difficult decision to shut the District Club from 10 pm today until the rules change again to allow opening.  As you will know all licenced premises must close as of midnight tonight 16/10/2020.  This means that the indoor parts of the club must remain closed, however, the bowling green can remain open as an outdoor sports facility.  As earlier in the year the side gate will be left unlocked during the day to allow access and the required track and trace log sheet will be available in the lean-to shed.  Members must comply with social distancing rules when using the green.

We appreciate that this is a disappointment for all members but we must act appropriately with the new rules.

What’s Happening @ The District Club

Since re-opening, we have been pleased to see so many members making use of the club once again. Following our first council meeting after re-opening, we have a few bits of news.

Club Competitions

The Barker Bleasdale – We are continuing from where we left off to get the competition completed. Ian McLay has taken over the running of this for and will be contacting those still left in the competition.

Bowls Singles & Doubles – An entry list will be going up in the club or email the social committee to enter. If you are entering the doubles then please confirm with your partner before entering. The first round of the singles will be a round-ribbon with progression dependant on aggregate. For the doubles, it will be a straight knockout. All first-round games must be played by 5th September when the bowling green will be shut for 2 weeks. On reopening each round must be played within 2 weeks.

Open Bowls Competition – Peter Fielding is organising an open bowls event for Wednesday nights. Everybody who turns up will play. Please arrive by 6:30pm on Wednesday nights (starting 5th August) if you wish to join in.

Events

There will be 3 events later in the year (at the moment, situation dependant). Firstly we will be having a social event at the district club instead of the bowls dinner (all members welcome)

Secondly, we will be using the AGM as a social event

Thirdly we will be holding the Xmas draw and draw night.

All dates to be confirmed. Further events as we can arrange them.
