|QRSLMBC REVISED RETURN TO PLAY FRAMEWORK @1 August 2020
It is important that all club bowling members understand the QRSLMBC Framework for return to play in a COVID-Safe Environment before enjoying your time on our Greens.
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.
|QRSLMBC POST COVID-19 RETURN TO SOCIAL BOWLS
Social bowls at the QRSLM Bowling Club return on Tuesday 23 June 2020. With some Covid-19 restrictions Tuesday and Saturday bowls return to normal operation.
