Pennant Season Commencement and Speaker

Commencement of Pennant

Pennant begins tomorrow for the Thursday Pennant side, on Saturday for the Weekend Pennant sides and on Tuesday for Midweek Pennant sides. Members are reminded that there will be no breaks during all pennant games or serving of tea/coffee until further notice because of continuing COVID-19 restrictions. Masks are no longer required outside or on the greens but are still required to be worn inside if not eating or drinking. Please also adhere to the 1.5m social distancing rules when at the club.

Pre-Season Talk

To celebrate the start of the 2020/21 pennant season, tomorrow night we will have our traditional guest speaker before the first game of Saturday Pennant. We encourage everyone to attend Swinburne Avenue as we launch our season off with a talk at 7.00pm. Our speaker this year will be fellow member Paul Morris. We will be serving a BBQ, so come down for a practice and stay for an interesting talk.

Please note that due to the current COVID restrictions we can only seat 47 members in the clubrooms. Other members will have to sit outside to listen to the talk.

To allow the club to monitor numbers, we encourage members to use the Trybooking system to book in tomorrow in the Thursday 2.00pm to 8pm timeslot. Members can then turn up to bowl any time during the given timeslot. Cut off for bookings is 9am on the day. Ian Smith will print a list of attendees which will then be signed along with start and finish times by members. Alternatively, members can scan a QR code using their mobile phone.

There is also a new link. Please click on the link below

https://www.trybooking.com/BMWQK

and the screen will look slightly different. Instead of clicking the desired date at the bottom of the screen, members will need to click the “Book Now” button at the top right of their screen.

The Trybooking system will continued to be used on a Tuesday and Thursday for training at the Swinburne Ave greens for the foreseeable future.

Vale – John Sykes

Dear Members,

It is with deep regret that we advise members that John Sykes passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer. John was 85 years old and a 15 year member of the Section until illness forced his resignation in January this year.

John will be sorely missed around the club for his friendship on and off the green. He was always happy to volunteer his assistance with functions and other tasks as required. He was a great clubman and avid Demons supporter who was often at the ‘G’ watching them play.

Condolences to John’s family.
