30 June 2021 – UPDATE re 2021 BDBA Men’s Pennants

The following is a note from the Brisbane District Men’s Match Sub-Committee re Pennants Round 1.
 
Dear Club Secretaries,
 
As you would be aware, the Queensland Government has imposed a three day lockdown between 6.00pm Tuesday 29 June and 6.00pm Friday 2 July 2021. 
 
If the current lockdown ends as at 6.00pm Friday 2 July 2021 and bowls is permitted to be played under any Chief Health Officer imposed restrictions, 
 
Round 1 of the BDBA Pennants competition WILL proceed as scheduled.
 
However, if the lockdown is extended, or restrictions are imposed that would restrict the playing of bowls, Round One of the 2021 Men’s Pennant competition would be abandoned with all teams awarded one match point.
 
The BDBA Men’s Match Pennant Sub-Committee will provide an update to all clubs once additional information becomes available.
 
Please ensure that all your Pennant players have a face mask with them at all times, whether playing at their home club or playing at the AWAY club and when entering the Clubhouse.  
 
Clubs have the right to restrict entry of any Pennant Player who is not wearing a face mask. 
 
Regards 
Brisbane District Match Pennant Sub-Committee.

24 June 2021 – Club Jackets

Hi Bowlers
 
Just a short note to remind everyone that orders for club jackets close this coming Sunday 27th of June.
 
As we have now reached the minimum order quantity, our order will be forwarded to our supplier next Monday.
 
Order sheets are on both the Men’s and Ladies notice boards……….  doesn’t matter which sheet you use.
 
We are asking all members who order a jacket to pay up front at the Bar ($72) so that the club won’t be out of pocket until our order arrives (delivery expected first week of August).
 
Please note your Receipt Number beside your name on the order sheet.
 
I will leave a copy of the order sheet on the notice board (marked Orders Closed) for the next week so that those members who have already ordered can add their Receipt Number to their order details.
 
The club is not purchasing spares.
 
Based on the fact that it is five years since our last order, and at this time we have only just reached our suppliers minimum order quantity, in all likelihood it will be many years before another order for club jackets is placed.
 
Regards
Graham Collingwood

31 May 2021 – Umpires and Measurers Urgently required at Ferny Grove
 
Dear Bowlers,
 
Ferny Grove Bowls Club’s stock of Umpires is reaching crisis level. The few good souls who are our Umpires are being drawn on repeatedly and it would be good if we could ease their burden by increasing the number of our bowlers who are qualified.
 
The same applies to Qualified Measurers.
 
Bowls Queensland regularly runs courses for Umpires and Measurers and we are urgently appealing to members to put their names forward to gain their qualifications in these important positions.
 
If you are interested in either course, please contact Men’s President Geoff Manser (mobile 0458 001 749; email gemanser@westnet.com.au) and he will make the necessary arrangements.
 
Please help if you can!
