President Les has asked me to issue the following statement.
In todays (21st May) statement, Nicola Sturgeon indicated that outdoor non-contact sports (including Bowls) may be allowed to resume on or shortly after 28th May, subject to ongoing restrictions on physical distancing, meeting up with other households and on ensuring appropriate hygiene measures are in place.
However it will not be bowls as “Normal”, unfortunately the restrictions will be likely to have an impact on how many people can be at, or on, the green at any one time and therefore the MC will need to ensure that all the required procedures and measures are in place. We have had an indication from guidance seen from other countries what these will be and have already taken some initial steps to enable us to comply, however we await the definitive guidelines from Bowls Scotland before outlining to you the members what is required to enable us to get back on the green.
PLEASE BE ASSURED WE AIM TO DO SO ASAP
