UPDATES 

CHRISTMAS PLANT SALE

            Lynn Hope (lhope4335@gmail.com is running our Christmas plant sale fundraiser.  

Pick up of Christmas product ordered will be on Nov. 29th between 4 and 6 pm in the kitchen of old club house.

 

 

 Clubhouse:   Nov. 4, 2022:  We will not be gaining access to our new clubhouse until sometime in December, perhaps not until January 2023.

The smaller but still serviceable old clubhouse is open.  KinVillage has done a nice job of creating a safe and convenient entry to the old clubhouse with pavers.    Any member can open and use the clubhouse and its washrooms.

.The ranking tag board  will remain in the locker shed and draws will be conducted in the locker shed.

2022 Summer Season Wrap Up and Awards:

The Summer Season Wrap-up and Awards shown on the calendar at 3:30  PM  Sunday October 2 will not be taking place as all of the Awards and Trophies are still locked in storage somewhere in Delta. We will reschedule the awards for the Spring of 2023 when we will be in our new clubhouse facilities and will be able to recover our trophies. 

For now the bowling will continue with the 1:00 PM draws.

                On behalf of all of the members of our club I would like to thank Marty Vanstone and Dale Larock for the work they are doing sprucing up our green markers.  Marty painted the hog lines, etc., and Dale has been spending an hour most mornings refurbishing our individual lane marking chips.  They are now so bright and lovely we may decide not to move once our new clubhouse and green are completed....well, maybe we will move in spite of this great improvement.

Thanks very much for your hard work.

CLUBHOUSE UPDATE Aug. 3, 2022

                Work continues on our clubhouse but the completion date and our move in date have been moved back.  It looks like the clubhouse will be completed in mid to early September and we will move in on October 1.  The Executive of the club has been negotiating with the City with respect to the terms of a Licence Agreement which will govern our use of the clubhouse, and we are getting close to having a final agreement.  In very broad terms it appears that we will have exclusive use of the entire clubhouse and green for our “normal” season from April 1 to October 31.  We are negotiating primarily with respect to the access we will have to the clubhouse, or parts of the clubhouse, during the winter months.  We will have sufficient access to run daily draws during the winter as we have the past two winters.  Once a final Licence Agreement has been signed we will provide you with all of the details.


TUESDAY MAINTENANCE CREW
A group of us meets each Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. to do various tasks around the green. We can always use an extra hand. Come on out and help us make the green and surrounding areas look better.

Games Committee Chair, Ralph Walker, advises games related issues:

 We ask that the first bowlers set all the lane markers to the right colour as per the charts in the shed and the clubhouse.
Afternoon bowlers are asked to double check the markers in case no one was in attendance in the morning

- Last members on the green in each session are to ensure the green has been cleared of all equipment and returned to the shed

 (green sheets, mats, jacks, scoreboards, jack centring sticks, rakes). This is important as one evening in the past week scoreboards, green sheets and mats that were not used but on the green were not returned and left out overnight. This invites vandalism and theft.  Make sure the green, shed and clubhouse are all closed and locked if you may be the last person at the Club.

- Members are responsible for setting up and taking down the greens - for triples draws this is a group task, for reserved bookings setup and take down is by participants for that lane.

 Thank you

Ralph Walker

Bowler Rankings

            The Ranking Committee has met and made ranking decisions for 2021.  I would like to provide some comments concerning the ranking process.  The Committee has eliminated the intermediate rankings (for example “yellow with a green dot”).  The truth is that the ranking process is by its nature imprecise and trying to categorize our players into 7 different levels did not make sense....four levels is enough.  So, if you were a “green with a red dot”  and are now ranked “green” (or vice skip) you have not been demoted...just a change of system.  I have attached a sheet which outlines the general expectations of the Club for each position.  In theory each of Lead, Second, Third/Vice Skip and Skip should account for 25% of the members of the Club so teams of four can be easily and fairly assembled.  We are blessed with an abundance of skips in relation to the three other positions.  No bowlers were moved from vice skip to skip this year.  In some cases this was simply a matter of numbers...we don’t have room for more skips at this time.  Rankings are not really important...they just provide a rough way to fairly conduct a random draw for teams.  Ranked name tags will be placed back on the board tomorrow (just to the right of the clubhouse door for those newer to the Club) and those name tags will show your new or continued ranking.  If you have any questions or concerns about your ranking please address them to me and they will be dealt with.  As vice skips have new additional responsibilities we will soon be putting on a short course for new vice skips, or any continuing vice skips who would like a refresher course.  We will be notifying all vice skips of the date of the course shortly.
