Update May 31, 2020

 

I am writing to you this morning to give you an update on our opening and to give you some information on upcoming schedule changes.  This is new for all of us so we will be making changes from time to time as we learn more about what is working and what is not.

Our first week generally went well with most days well attended.  By far the majority of the bowlers followed the guidelines.  However a number of you are still having trouble following the physical distancing guidelines.  If you are not living with your bowling partner you are to stay six feet away from him or her at all times when on the green or entering or exiting the clubhouse, not get shoulder to shoulder to impart a little bowling wisdom.

We have made changes to the schedule to reflect what we have seen in the first week.  For next week we have blocked off all 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. slots as nobody bowled in those slots this week and it is supposed to be cool next week.

For the week of June 8 and the balance of June we have revised the bowling schedule to allow more daytime slots and to reduce the overall work of the monitors by having three consecutive 90 minute bowling slots instead of a morning and an afternoon session.  A schedule for the week of June 8 has been posted.  You can review it now but you cannot book for the week of June 8 until June 1st at 8:00 a.m.  We may add more evening bowling in July and August if there is a demand for it.

 

You may now move the ground sheets if you wish.  We strongly recommend that you use the hand sanitizer before and after moving the ground sheet as we will not be disinfecting the ground sheets.

Non-bowling members may now come inside the green area to sit on the bench and watch the bowling if they wish.  If you wish to do so you must complete and give in to the monitor the first time you attend the Assumption of Risk form attached.  Each day please check in with the monitor (who may be playing) and provide a Medical Screening Form.  The physical distancing guidelines also must be followed by you.  And please don’t come to the green if you are at all ill.

A number of our members have expressed the wish to be able to play pairs games.  We will add the option of playing pairs games once we are convinced that the membership is following the current guidelines.  So, even if you think the physical distancing guidelines are not necessary at this time we encourage all members to follow them because if they do not do so we will not be moving to the next phase of our reopening, that is, allowing pairs games to be played.

Bowls BC advised me yesterday that it has obtained insurance which does not exclude covid 19 liability so that is good news.

 

Finally I want to thank Karen and Ralph Walker for all the work they have done to allow us to open.  With my many (too many?) email messages I have been the face of the reopening but Karen and Ralph have done much of the actual work involved in getting us bowling.

Hi Fellow TLBC Members:

Well, here is the news that many of you have been waiting for.  The green will be open for limited play with a strict safety protocol starting Tuesday, May 26.  Please review the  Guidelines, the Waiver form and the Medical Screening Form.  (see links below)

To some of you the rules we have put in place may seem “over the top” but the Board feels that they are necessary in order to reduce the risks associated with covid 19.  In any event, most of the rules we have put in place have been mandated by the City of Delta, the Provincial Health Office or Bowls B.C.  Without these rules we could not bowl this year.  I will be sending to you a further email outlining the procedure to schedule a time slot when you can register, pick up your bowls and bowl.

Start limbering up those old muscles folks.

David, 

TLBC President

Hi Again Everybody:

As we indicated earlier, the green will open for solo practice or singles games starting on Tuesday May 26.  To remind you, we will be using four lanes and there will be 90 minute bowling slots available at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. each day.  You may book appointments to bowl starting at 8:00 a.m. Friday May 22nd.  Do not attempt to book before then.  The document outlining the rules for the bookings and how to book the appointments is attached as the “Scheduling Protocol.”

In order to make it easier for everyone to follow physical distancing guidelines, after Monday the locker shed will only be open to be used by our monitors, or upon permission from a monitor.  We would like as many members as possible to

go up to the locker shed between now and Monday and:

  1.      Pick up your bowls and take them home with you.

  2.      Drop off in the folder in the locker shed on the card table we have set up there your cheque made out to “Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club” in the amount of $75 per member who wishes to bowl, and a signed and witnessed copy of the Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability” document which is attached.  The latter document can be deposited in the separate folder also on the card table in the locker shed.

Please respect the physical distancing rules by having only one person in the locker shed when you are picking up your bowls.

To make things run more smoothly on bowling days please fill out your Medical Screening Form before you come up to bowl so you can just drop it off in a folder that will be provided.  You will need a completed Medical Screening Form every time you bowl.

All things considered the green is surprisingly fast but I would still recommend you set the jack at a very short distance while you retrain your bowling muscles.  Good Bowling!
