MEMBERS BOWLS @ The QRSLMBC

Updated 30/5/2020
QRSLMBC GREENS NOW OPEN – BUT SUBJECT TO RESTRICTIONS
Welcome back.
The Queanbeyan RSLM Bowling Club greens are now open via bookings but under strict conditions.
Under Covid-19 restrictions, participants must comply with our current return to play framework and have an understanding of the new bowling sessions information.
Just reminding bowling members that the club was closed to all members. As the club re-opens but under restrictions, if we stray outside this reopening framework you jeopardise access/use of the club not only to bowlers but all club members.
These documents will be reviewed regularly in line with Government advice.

QRSLMBC RETURN TO PLAY FRAMEWORK
Please read and understand the attached “return to play framework” for the QRSLMBC.
Please read and understand this document, before enjoying your time on our Greens.
It is important that all club bowling members understand the QRSLMBC Framework for return to play in a COVID-Safe Environment.
It addresses the vulnerability of bowlers particularly age and health during these time. It also address the use of greens including Practice only, Bookings, Numbers, Physical Distancing, General Hygiene Measures, Monitoring and recording of attendance and use of greens, and Penalties.
Bowling members must understand that the club was closed to all members. As the club re-opens but under restrictions, if you stray outside this Framework you jeopardise access/use of the club not only to bowlers but all club members.

CLOSURE OF THE QRSLMBC DUE TO COVID-19
The Queanbeyan RSLM Bowling Club is following the guidance & guidlines issued by Bowls ACT and Bowls Australia which has seen the suspension all Bowls ACT and Australian events.
The closure of the club it-self is because of the NSW Government restrictions put in place for the over-all health safety and welfare of all state residents – you and me.
The closure of the club, restaurant and club facilities is a licencing matter where any breach could see the club permanently closed or liable to substantial fines/penalties.
We hope that you understand that the QRSLMBC will work closely with the NSW government and the club will re-open when restrictions are removed and we can provide a safe, healthy, friendly environment that we can all enjoy.
Hopefully we will enjoy your company soon.
