  1. Renovation of Indoor Green

Work commenced on the 9th July and is currently progressing in accordance with the program to allow re-opening of the Green on 8th August 2018.  Redecoration works to the ceiling over the standing and sitting area adjacent to the bowls store is in progress with completion expected before the green is reopened.  The upgrading of the Chilled water supply to the additional air conditioning outlets has not yet commenced and may not be completed before reopening.  Access to the indoor bowls lockers and store room has and will be maintained.

Just a gentle remind that Section members may be required to hire public indoor green as their home green for National Indoor Pairs during the close of the Indoor Green.  They can claim back the hiring fees from the Section’s Treasurer but they have to present the relevant receipts.

The Outdoor Green will be reopened after maintenance on Sunday 29th July 2018.

The Improving Clinic will run on 2, 10, 15 and 24 August 2018 and the Beginners’ Course enrolment form will be available at the 1/F Sports Desk for registration.  The entries deadline will be on 15th August 2018.

  1. Re-claim of Lockers from In-active Section members and Section members not playing for the Club

We have previously collected those lockers occupied by the Absence members and allocated to the currently leagues players.  For the Second stage of the re-claim exercise we will collect lockers from those Section members who have not actively play for the Club in both Premier and Triple Leagues for over 5 years and those Section members who are playing for other clubs but occupying the Section’s lockers.

In late July the Section will issue letters to the above-mentioned Section members concerning the details of the re-claim of their occupied lockers through the Club Management.  They are required to clear their assigned locker/lockers on or before Sunday 26th August 2018.
