Club News - 7th September 2020

Hi Everyone,

The Men’s Club Singles Semi-Finals and Finals took place on Sunday 6th September and the weather was kind for those playing and spectating. It was great to see so many friends and familiar faces down at the club  again, catching up with each other and supporting the players. A big thank you to everyone who came  down to watch and make it a great day.

Congratulations goes to Mike Parsons who beat Joe Moorley in a Final  which saw some great bowling from both players. Mike has now earnt  himself a spot in the Champion of Champions next season.

In what has been a difficult season, it was great  that we could get the competition on at all and give playing members  some competitive games. Thank you to all those who participated.

Special thanks go to Matt Hayzelden and Joe Moorley  who put in a lot of time and effort helping out with the draw, playing  arrangements, marking, and setting up of the green and club for the  finals weekend.

Also thanks to Rose Castle for marking the Final.

Your help is appreciated as always

Hope to see you all back on the green next year

Jamie Claydon
Competition Secretary

We’d like to welcome you all to come down to the  club to watch the games and catch up with friends from the club before  it closes, under the standard social distancing measures of course.

Toilet facilities inside the clubhouse will be open on the day, but the bar will not be.

In line with government and bowls England policies it is regrettable but inevitable the decision has been taken to suspend all Baldock Bowls Club events and fixtures until further notice.

It is planned to review the position around the end of may beginning of June, this will of course depend on how the situation develops.

On behalf of the committee I wish all members and friends well at this trying time. Keep yourselves safe and pay attention to medical advice.
