Coronavirus : Partial relaxation of rules (18th May)
Roll-up notes at end
You are no doubt aware that there is to be a relaxing of some restrictions taking effect from Monday, May 18.
As a result, Bowls WA have provided us with strict guidelines for the partial opening of clubs which means more of us can now play and even spend some time in the bar again.
I now urge you to read, take note and respect the following important points remembering that, without a diligent and combined effort as a club we risk the health of members, large fines ($50,000) and being closed down.
From May 18 we can have 20 players per green with a max of 3 greens in operation at once – ie. 60 players or, alternatively, we are allowed 40 players with 20 patrons in the bar – CONTINUING ALL PREVIOUSLY ADVISED SAFETY PRECAUTIONS BOTH ON AND OFF THE GREENS.
Change rooms will remain closed however, toilets can be used.
THE BAR – There will be TABLE SERVICE ONLY with no purchases over the bar.
All patrons MUST ORDER A MEAL and CANNOT BE SERVED ALCOHOL WITHOUT FIRST PURCHASING FOOD.
A variety of toasted sandwiches will be available with a menu placed on each table. A total of 20 PATRONS ONLY can be in the bar at one time.
FOR THE TIME BEING THE BAR WILL BE OPEN THURSDAYS AND SATURDAYS ONLY.
PLEASE OBSERVE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND HYGIENE RULES AT ALL TIMES
We are aware that these bar regulations and restrictions may prove difficult for some members however, for the welfare of everyone we must adhere to the rules.
With some Coved-19 restrictions being lifted we are now able to have 20 players on each green. I have checked with Bowls WA who advise that we can play in whatever format we wish and do not need to have a rink separation so this will make it a lot easier. The people who played on “A” green on Saturday will be moved to “B” green this week. Of course, dependant on numbers, it may not be necessary to use “A” green however I am sure we will need both greens. The weather forecast looks favourable so names to me, via email, at email@example.com as soon as possible.
As was voted at the last committee meeting a $10 green fee per player applies.
The bar will be open after the game for the first 20 people and a charge of $5 for a toasted gourmet sandwich or wrap is required to be purchased prior to buying alcohol using table service only. When booking to play please indicate if you wish to stay – First in best dressed.
