KNUTSFORD LEAGUE SUSPENDED.

I am sorry to announce the League and all Competions are suspended from today. This is as a direct result of a directive from the BCGBA. No competions are to start or continue, so the Union Club 4 aside has been cancelled and the pairs at Crosstown this Saturday will be postponed, hopefully to be played later in the year. All meeting are also cancelled so the meeting of the Cheshire County MC tonight has been cancelled, the Knutsford League MC meeting that was to be held on Thursday has also been cancelled.

Knutsford League Competions - They will remain on their scheduled date but will only be played if safe to do so. The first will be the Walter Baskerville Merit scheduled for Monday 25th May, followed by the Gallimore Pairs. The Emmett Cup will remain on August Bank Holiday at Wilmslow Conservative Club and I do hope we can bowl by then!  

There is nothing to stop practice as long as government guidelines are adhered to and any club restrictions are met.

KNUTSFORD LEAGUE SUSPENDED.

KNUTSFORD LEAGUE SUSPENDED.

Good morning.

 

I am sorry to announce the League and all Competions are suspended from today. This is as a direct result of a directive from the BCGBA (attached at the bottom of this message). No competions are to start or continue, so the Union Club 4 aside has been cancelled and the pairs at Crosstown this Saturday will be postponed, hopefully to be played later in the year. All meeting are also cancelled so the meeting of the Cheshire County MC tonight has been cancelled, the Knutsford League MC meeting that was to be held on Thursday has also been cancelled.

 

Knutsford League Competions - They will remain on their scheduled date but will only be played if safe to do so. The first will be the Walter Baskerville Merit scheduled for Monday 25th May, followed by the Gallimore Pairs. The Emmett Cup will remain on August Bank Holiday at Wilmslow Conservative Club and I do hope we can bowl by then!

Stay safe and kind regards,

Jid Webb – Knutsford League General Secretary.

From the BCGBA

 

To County Secretaries, Management and Officers.

Following the Government announcement this afternoon it is with great sadness that we now have to suspend all bowling for the foreseeable future.

Based on the advice announced we need to avoid all mass gatherings and sporting event as these will no longer be supported by the emergency services. 

If anyone within your household has symptoms then the whole family need to isolate for 14 days.

Limit social contact wherever possible and encourage working from home. 

At risk groups - those over 70 and those with medical conditions need to take additional care.

All BCGBA meetings should now be postponed as un-necessary travel should be avoided. Contact in Pubs, Clubs and restaurants to be avoided. 

Taking this all into account all leagues should now suspend matches until such time as we are given an all clear to resume competition.

All BCGBA and BCGLCC Competitions are now suspended until further notice this should include all qualifier events. 

As a Bowls community we need to look after our members and I encourage you to follow the advice being given and support those we are able to at this very difficult time. 

I will add links onto the website / face-book as these are updated. 

Please take care of yourself and stay safe.  

On behalf of the Management Committee BCGBA

Chris Hasselby  (BCGBA Chairman)

Mark Bircumshaw (CEO)

8 Rules Revisions.

From M.C.

Rule M 9 – Playing Twice.

Currently reads A player can only play one match during one calendar day. The exception is if a club has MORE than three teams registered and three of those teams are playing on the same night. Then players initially registered for that club’s lowest team on that day can play twice as long as Rule M 8 is adhered to.
The MC suggests the restriction of the number of teams is removed, permitting players to play twice on the same night as long as rule M 8 is strictly adhered to.

A new handicap competition for players registered Division 3 or lower – The Ray Brandreth Trophy. Played on the last weekend of July in the same format as the Emmett Cup. Final day with 32 entrants, qualifiers the week before if required.

Letters received.

From Crosstown BC.

The Walter Baskerville Shield should be played on the last bank holiday Monday in May. Played with a maximum of 32 players on the day, qualifiers played the week before if required.

9 AOB. None advised.
