Hello everyone and welcome to the online booking page.
We have been allowed to re-open the Kerrisdale LBC, provided we strictly adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines laid down by the Provincial Health Department. KLBC is now entering Phase 1 of the Bowls BC approved re-opening plan. You should all have been sent a copy of this plan by email and everyone will be required to read it, and agree to abide by it, before they are allowed to bowl.
The main points relating to members are:-
NO-ONE IS TO GO TO THE CLUB EXCEPT TO ONE OF THE SCHEDULED OPEN DRAWS
If you are sick, do not go to the club as you will be refused entry.
No-one may go to the club unless they follow the approved procedures:-
1). Every visit has to be pre-booked. We are limited to 16 players per session.
2). Every player has to sign a Waiver. This only needs to be done once for the whole season.
3). Every player has to complete a Symptom Screening Questionnaire EVERY time they visit and needs to hand it to the appointed Monitor for that session.
4). Everyone has to sign the Attendance Register when they arrive at the club.
Anyone not complying with all of the four items listed above will be refused entry.
This all sounds very officious, but if we fail to follow these rules the club could be shut down, then no-one would be able to bowl!
At present, there is no restriction on the number of sessions you can book for, but if it becomes apparent that some members are experiencing difficulty in finding vacant slots, then some form of rationing will be considered. Please don't book for any sessions beyond Sunday 5th July until we see how the first week goes.
The intention is that Phase 1 will be followed by Phase 2, but as yet we don’t know what the requirements for Phase 2 will be.
On week one, starting Tuesday 30th June, please arrive at the club 20 minutes before your session is due to start. Wait outside (patiently please) observing the 2 metre physical distancing, until the Monitor invites you into the club one person at a time. This process is going to be slow because there is a lot of paperwork that needs to be completed, particularly on your first visit. There will also be a delay before you can bowl because the Monitor needs to explain to you all the new regulations we have to observe for the way the game is to be played.
Phase 1 is the time when we learn how to play whilst observing the new requirements for physical distancing and avoiding cross contamination. It is for Practicing and Training, not for competitive games, although scoring is allowed. Hopefully Phase 2 will follow shortly after, when we know what we are doing, but nobody yet knows what the new guidelines for it will be.
Booking closes 2 hours before the start of the session
