Whilst still governed by the Provincial restrictions we will still be allowed to continue bowling as of Phase 2 last year. To recap we are allowed to only Practice: Singles, Pairs, or Cutthroat on 4 alternate rinks with a revised physical distancing of 3 metres (10 feet). There will still be a need for a supervisor for each session. Although Triples are now allowed it has been decided initially to remain with Singles, Pairs or Cutthroat, mainly due to the extended physical distancing.
The intention is to try to make the session format more interesting for the bowlers. We will start with bowling three days per week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. There will be two daily sessions, 10:00 am to 11:30 am and 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm. The morning session will be Open Pairs and the afternoon session an Open Draw. (Description below).
1. Each session will be one 10 end game.
2. Limit of 16 bowlers per session.
3. Session booking on the club website: qblbc.ca.
OPEN PAIRS – The choice to bowl with a partner of your choice or, if a single player, adjustments will be made by the session supervisor. Cutthroat can also be utilised.
OPEN DRAW – Similar to the pre Covid afternoon tagged draw. All bowlers attending the session will draw a position and rink.
We will also be organising small monthly weekend Special Practice Pairs and possibly a Cutthroat Practice league. This, of course, will depend on the level of interest. You can send your comments to the Games Committee at email@example.com
Our Guidelines have been revised and accepted by Bowls BC.
A new Waiver and Medical Questionnaire must be completed prior to each bowler’s first session. The required forms can be accessed on the club website or completed at the club at the first session.
Further details before the start day.
