-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is with much sadness that I have to inform you that Jackie Hinton passed away in the early hours of this morning 5th May 2020.

Jackie was one of our social bowlers and last year won the Consolation Cup. A quiet and charming lady who will be very much missed. Her husband Alan will be known to many of you as he is a keen league bowler.

I am sure that we would all like to extend our sincere sympathy to Alan and family at this sad time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

To County Secretaries, Management and Officers, Leagues and Members.

Following the Government announcement this afternoon it is with great sadness that we now have to suspend all bowling for the foreseeable future.

Based on the advice announced we need to avoid all mass gatherings and sporting event as these will no longer be supported by the emergency services. 

If anyone within your household has symptoms then the whole family need to isolate for 14 days.

Limit social contact wherever possible and encourage working from home. 

At risk groups - those over 70 and those with medical conditions need to take additional care.

All BCGBA meetings should now be postponed as un-necessary travel should be avoided. Contact in Pubs, Clubs and restaurants to be avoided. 

Taking this all into account all leagues should now suspend matches until such time as we are given an all clear to resume competition.

All BCGBA and BCGLCC Competitions are now suspended until further notice this should include all qualifier events. 

As a Bowls community we need to look after our members and I encourage you to follow the advice being given and support those we are able to at this very difficult time. 

I will add links onto the website / face-book as these are updated. 

Please take care of yourself and stay safe.  

On behalf of the Management Committee BCGBA
Chris Hasselby  (BCGBA Chairman)
Mark Bircumshaw (CEO
)

Tidy up around the greens, we’re looking to start at 10am SATURDAY 14/03/2020 nothing too strenuous, we will be clearing out the ditches, removing weeds from the slabbed areas and some general maintenance of the furniture around the greens.

Connah Warr has been appointed chairman of our bowls club, Connah has been around the club pretty much all his life so knows the club inside out and at 21 years of age has become the youngest chairman we have ever had, what he lacks in experience he will more than make up with enthusiasm and a wealth of experience to call upon within our club. Exciting times going forward in the next chapter for our great club and I’m sure you all wish him every success in his new role congratulations Connah Warr.

 

 

————————————————————————————————————————————

 

Special thanks to Jackie Granger who worked tirelessly in the time she was in the role as bowls section chairman, Jackie resigned on Saturday with immediate effect and I’m sure we all wish her well for the future.

WINTER BOWLS

.

 

 

Winter bowls is OFF Saturday 29/02/2020 due to the weather sorry.

 

 

 

 

==================================================

 

 

BOWLS ETIQUETTE for our new bowlers and a reminder for our experienced bowlers for the season ahead.

 

As a team member you are expected to be present throughout the entire game and not just when you are playing your own game. When you are not playing you are expected to support the players on the green including marking score cards if required.

 

Arrive in good time especially if you are playing on your home green as you are allowed to practice before play commences. If you arrive late you will be disqualified and the game awarded to your opponent.

 

Smoking and Mobile Phones are not allowed on the green.

 

Introduce yourself and shake hands with your opponent(s) before play commences.

 

Bowls should not be dropped on the Green.

 

Do not spit on the green or on your bowls in order to grip them more firmly.

 

During the game do not talk or move around when your opponent is about to deliver his bowl. Stand well back, keep quiet and do not do anything that would distract your opponent. Wait until the bowl has been delivered before moving.

 

Bowls should not be kicked in until the result of the end has been agreed by both players.

 

Bowling is a friendly game and all players should show courtesy and good sportsmanship.

 

All Bowlers should know the Rules as laid down by the British Crown Green Bowling Association.

 

After the Game you should once again shake hands with your opponent(s) and congratulate/commiserate with them appropriately.

 

Place litter and cigarette ends in the bins and ashtrays provided for this purpose and not in the ditches around the edge of the green.

 

After the evening games some teams choose to round off the night with a small beverage in one of the local hostelries where the game is invariably replayed, analysed and discussed in depth! There is of course no compulsion to attend!

 

Knowledge of the above will make you a more respected bowler, keep things friendly and contribute towards the enjoyment of the game for everyone involved, both on and off the green.

 

==============================================================================

 

 

 

 

 

Winter bowls is on Saturday 08/02/2020 11:30am as long as it’s frost free.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Great news bowlers. as you hopefully know, the bottom green is already open and now the top green will open this sunday march 24th (weather permitting). lets hope that the sun shines on us.                                                                                                     ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank You.  On Saturday 6th January we asked for volunteers to a working party to clear the paths and gullies of leaves and twigs. A magnificent turnout of over 20 bowls members made light work of the task in hand with a generous serving of fun and banter to help us along. Thank you to everyone who gave your time and energy. Lets do it again before the season starts.

The Summer of Development

Well done to Les and Jacky Phillips for all their hard work in formulating, planning, initiating, promoting, gaining funding, procuring for and running the Thursday morning crown green bowls taster and coaching sessions this summer holiday. The initiative has been a huge success with over 70 participants aged from 5 to 75 years experiencing our sport for the first time and getting bitten by the bug. As a result, many of those who tried the sport out have applied to join and carry on bowling, which is a fantastic result and a fitting testimony to all of their drive and effort.

Young and Old

All ages came along and enjoyed, practising new skills.

County Bowls News: The South Staffs Ladies County Team play this weekend against Mid-Cheshire, and two of our Ladies are involved: Debbie Tudor is selected to play No 8 away from home at the Red Lion in Frodsham, with Jackie Granger selected as a reserve at the same fixture. Alison Morgan was also selected but had to withdraw. Best of luck to the South Staffs Ladies on Sunday 24 April and in particular to Debbie and Jackie - we know you will do Wombourne proud!

Meanwhile, congratulations to our juniors Ben Fieldhouse, Connah Warr and Millie Warr who are all selected to play for Staffs Junior County v Lancashire on Sunday 8 May 2016. All three are in the home side, playing at Woodfield (bottom green). Well done, and the best of British to you too!!

 
Fantastic performances from two of Wombourne's Juniors today in the County's Mini Minor Major competition at Pennfields. First, Ben Fieldhouse battled his way through to the final in the "Major" age group category, finishing runner up to the winner Josh Jarvis. Well done Ben, a great effort! At the same time, Millie Warr was pulling up trees in the "Minor" age group, progressing to the final smoothly before beating Connor Bray to take County honours! Well done Millie, superb achievement! The photo shows Millie with Staffs County Honorary Treasurer, Registrar and Welfare Officer Mark Bircumshaw, Junior County manager Chris Lester watches on. Congratulations to both, particularly to the new Staffordshire Juniors Minor Champion 2016, Millie Warr!

GOOD NEWS

 

The new safety fence to the bottom green is Completed.

 

This will enable us to use this green at any time without restrictions when cricket matches are being played.

 

So on Sundays when you have been 'knocked out' of the competition you can get some practice in.
