The additional costs incurred as a result of our implementing covid safe procedures now represents a real challenge to the Company. I have recently reviewed opening hours and will consolidate fixtures to enable us to provide a league programme with space for ad hoc competitions in the most efficient and effective way. This will inevitably mean closing the club when no fixtures are likely to be played.

As from Sunday 20th September 2020 the club's opening hours will be:

MON 9.45am - 8.30pm (8.00am when Grand Prix)
TUE 9.00am - 8.30pm (8.00am when Grand Prix)
WED 9.45am - 8.30pm
THUR 9.00am - 10.30pm
FRI 9.45am - 10.30pm
SAT 6.00pm - 10.00pm ONLY
**SUN 9.00am - 1.45pm

**SUNDAYS - Lunches & possible afternoon bowling will be considered will be introduced dependent upon the Member's demand from Mid October. Once this returns the club will consider opening in the evenings for set date competitions & Nationals to be played)

The Bowling committee has decided that TWO BOWL TRIPLES will be played in the Morning Afternoon and Early Evening leagues. Matches will be 21 ends or 1 hour 45 minutes. This change will mean less bowls require removal from the head at the end of each end allowing for better social distancing among the players, and will also remove the age old debate - whether any third bowl should have the correct sticker applied.

Captains Sheets are now available and I can email Captains a copy of their team sheets upon request. THERE WILL BE NO CANCELLATION of league fixtures allowed but temporary substitution rules for this season will allow captains to borrow players from teams in the same division or below to help alleviate any fixture difficulties. The League Secretary reserves the right to move fixtures as the Club requires and will notify captains accordingly.

Most triples fixtures are timetabled through until end of Feb/ beginning of Mar 2021. A review of league bowling will take place prior to Christmas.

The Club Committee will supply a number of volunteer Covid Facilitators to attend throughout sessions of League bowling for at least the first few weeks. These Facilitators will wear a club shirt and an ID badge and will be on hand to help members returning to league bowling safely and answer any questions members may have concerning the covid procedures and distancing guidelines within the club.

A reminder that at LIBC currently:

1. The wearing of a face covering upon entering the club is MANDATORY (Persons with a disability that prevents them from wearing a mask will be issued with an 'LIBC Exemption Badge' on confirmation of registered exemption)

2. The wearing of a face covering on the bowling green is still recommended but if you feel it impedes your ability to bowl it can be removed PROVIDED THAT SOCIAL DISTANCING AT A MINIMUM OF 2 METRES IS OBSERVED.

3. If you decide to remove face coverings on the bowling green you MUST BE ON THE MAT or ON THE 'STARS' provided to meet the 2m Distancing rule.

This will be strictly enforced.

We now put our trust in you – our members to help us. We need you to take responsibility and ensure that our COVID-19 Secure Policies are followed. Failure to do so will put people - and ultimately the future of LIBC - at serious risk.

PLEASE NOTE - Before booking however, it is vital that you note two key conditions that apply:
  • Face Coverings are Mandatory. This is subject to a weekly Club Status review, so if you cannot wear one for any reason, please wait until this requirement is relaxed before you return to the club. Anyone NOT wearing a mask will be refused entry.
  • You MUST AGREE to play by the rules of the club in force at that time. Full and upto date details are available at the menu item 'Coro Documents'.
