Barlows League Captains,
Hi all, we, your committee, have started to consider how and when to start the 2021 season.
There are some problems to over come, second vaccines, club house usage,BCGBA guides etc. Mike has suggested the following, which I think can/will work.
Start the league later, that will solve many of the problems. To enable this later start we should have FOUR leagues of about 10 teams in each league over 18 weeks. The leagues will be based on how each team finished in the last set of results. The season would start on Tue June 1st and end, as normal, the last Tue of September. This will avoid overlapping with the start dates of indoor leagues. Fixtures would be created by Mike for bowlers to download from our site. This avoids the need to have booklets reprinted.
Could you, as previous and/or future captains, ask your bowlers if they wish to take part. We want to know their feelings and how many potential teams could be entering.
Could you please submit a reply as soon as possible so we can finalise and publish details of the season ahead.
Regards and best wishes, keep safe and stay healthy, looking forward to seeing you all in the new season,
