Coronavirus

Message From the President

 

Hello Members,

As you all are aware, the club and greens have now been closed as per a directive from the Federal Government.

What this means to all of us is that no one is allowed to enter the premises with the following exceptions as advised by the City of Gosnells:

• To carry out a security check daily.
• To carry out greens maintenance.

These specific tasks are necessary to keep the greens in tip top condition and to ensure that the Club and surrounds are secured in line with our Club’s insurance policy. I have set up a roster for the Management to carry out these security checks and have arranged with the Grounds Committee to take care of our greens.

Although the Club is closed, the Management is still working hard behind the scenes to ensure that our members and our staff are taken care of during this time of financial hardship.

The Management are also keeping track of daily updates from the Federal Government in relation to this virus and are taking the necessary steps to protect all of our members.

Our Management are keeping in contact with each other on a daily basis and will be meeting every Monday via conference calling.

On the bowls side, both Thursday and Saturday Pennant competitions and finals have been suspended indefinitely. It is very unlikely that these competitions will resume and cancellation may follow. What this means to promotion and pennant playoffs is up in the air at the moment and will be acted upon by Bowls WA in due course.

All Club run competitions and social bowls have all been suspended indefinitely. The Management will monitor the situation and make decisions as and when required.

It is only a matter of time before the Government impose a lock down and we all have to stay at home. This will be a good time for those of you that are fit and healthy enough, to carry out some of those little jobs around the house that your other half has been asking for, for possibly months or years. I most certainly have a list as long as my arm.

Please heed what you are all told by the Government so as not to come into contact with anyone who has succumbed to this awful virus. I cannot emphasise strongly enough the need to maintain separation while out and about. Keep an eye on the media and act accordingly.

Finally, I look forward to this terrible virus coming to an end and to getting back to the Club to get on with business and playing bowls.

Peter Charkiewicz
President
