RETURN TO BOWLS

 

Dear Member,

With the announcement of Queensland’s roadmap to easing restrictions the Club is now in a position to open up the greens for limited and supervised activity. The three stages out of lockdown have been addressed by the Queensland Government and details of each stage appear on the Covid 19 website. At the Board Meeting of the 25th May several issues relating to the current situation were discussed. One of these being a return to Bowls.

Advice received from the Queensland Government indicates that the Club is able to have ten people on the club premises at any one time ensuring that all the necessary Covid requirements are met. With that in mind it will not be get ready, get set, go, but a gradual return to normality. Depending on the decisions made this may be as long as several months. The first phase of our return to bowls will be in the form of roll ups only. This will commence on Monday the 1st June.

The following will apply:

  1. Only available to bowling members of the Bribie Island Bowls Club. Membership Cards will be required.
  2. All members wanting a roll up will have to book a time slot via reception (34081018). No booking, no rollup.
  3. Each session will be for a maximum of one hour.
  4. One booking per person per day.
  5. A maximum of two people per rink.
  6. A maximum of 10 people in the club at any one time.
  7. All activities will be controlled by a Club Marshal.
  8. Members will need to bring their own water. No alcohol can be brought onto club grounds.
  9. It would be beneficial if members had their own hand sanitizer.
  10. No spectators will be permitted to attend.
  11. Only two members in the locker room at any time.
  12. Members ignoring the directions of the Marshal will be required to leave the premises
  13. Members who do not turn up for a scheduled booking without prior notification will not be permitted to use the greens until notified.

Members who have booked a session should arrive no sooner that 10 minutes prior to scheduled time.

It is anticipated that the second phase of our return to bowls will be social competition. Based on current information this will be pairs. Current restrictions allows 20 people in the Club at any one time in the second stage out of the lock down.

These conditions allow social distancing to be practiced as well other safe practices to be put in place.

The Board of Management will meet when necessary to discuss the detail in relation to a return to bowls as new and updated information is released by the Government. This might mean that some of the particulars mentioned above may be altered to suit that updated information. If required further correspondence will be sent to all members.

Please remember that throughout this pandemic it has been the age bracket of our members that has been considered to be in the high risk category. This has not changed. If you are sick stay at home.

Installing the Covid Safe app is encouraged.

For your own information you might want to go to www.health.qld.gov/coronavirus and read the article Non-essential Business, Activity and Undertaking Closure Direction (Effective 16 May 2020)

Hoping all members have stayed safe and healthy through these unusual times.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Patrikeos
