President’s newsletter – August 2020

24 Aug

Well it is not long until we start playing Pennant again, most members seemed to be missing bowls if the attendance to social bowls is any indication. There has been some good turn ups with numbers in the mid thirties playing.

Availability List

However there are not a lot names on the availability list for all playing days, so if you intend to play this coming season put your name on the list so the selectors can start to work on who is available, this is so they can start to form what teams we will have. It will also stop the possibility of having to inform BTS that we may not have enough players to field the teams in the relevant divisions.

Fees

Another thing to think about is that club fees are due, they need to be paid by the 15 September 2020 as this allows capitation fees to be paid prior to the commencement of the season. We don’t want anybody to miss out on playing because the capitation has not been processed in time.

Bar Manager

There were a couple of positions left unfilled at the AGM but since then the Bar Manager position has been filled with the combined team of Kaye Upchurch and Shirley Hay. Kay will be the main contact point for the bar. Thank these ladies for taking on this very responsible position. All members with RSAs are asked to assist whenever called upon.

Secretary

The position of Secretary is still not filled even though it is not that hard, so if anybody would like to help come and have a chat and find out what truly is involved.

Working Bee

With the season fast approaching there is need of a Working Bee to neaten up our area. This will be held on Sunday 27 September 2020 commencing at 9:00am. There may even be a surprise for those that attend, so bring along your rakes, shovels, hedge cutters or anything that you think would come in handy. If anybody has any old paint, that can be used also.

Opening Day

Our club will be holding the season Opening Day on 12 September 2020 starting at 12:30pm followed by a BBQ and some Social Bowls if required. Please come along and attend this important event for our club. Invitations have also been sent to our patrons attend this day.
