The following e-mail has gone out to all club contacts this morning, just in case we haven't got the correct contact for your club posting it here as well.
We have asked for responses to email@example.com by Monday 8th March.
I hope that you are keeping well, you are being sent this as the 2020 contact for your club's Cannock Bowls League team(s). If this is no longer you then please pass the information to the new contact. If your club/green puts in two teams please make sure that the other captain has the information - up to you as a club whether you want to reply once or twice I don't mind which but please make it clear which.
If anyone knows who has taken over at Lea Hall can you let me know.
Given the circumstances it won't be possible to hold a physical AGM meeting this year, as such we will do a written statement and option to vote for the committee members to tide us over until next year, when hopefully we will be able to meet again on mass.
At this point it looks hopeful that some sort of league bowling will be possible this summer as such we would like each club to provide us with the responses to the following questions, by Monday 8th March so that we can look into what options we have.
Any plans that we make will adhere to BCGBA guidelines.
1. Please provide the name of your club, and the venue being used this year.
2. Please provide contact details for the club secretary and the team captain(s).
3. Is your club/green opening for league games?
4a. Will your club be able to open the toilet facilities? What part of the release from lockdown plan will opening these be reliant on?
5. Does your club still want to submit a team/teams for the 2021 season?
6. If the answer to 5 is No, is this just a withdrawal for this year, or do you wish to withdraw completely?
7. Will your team be able to provide a full team of 10 players each week?
8. If the answer to 7 is No, how many do you believe that you will have?
9. If a number of club's can't put in a full team which of the following options would you prefer (this would be a change for 2021 only)?
9a. To reduce the number of games played in the evening.
9b. To allow players to play more than once - to allow for the players in the teams that can put a full team in all to get a game.
9c. A mixture of 9a and 9b.
10. The committee has already be advised of a new team wishing to join the league, do you wish to submit another team this year?
11. If bowling is allowed but for a limited season would you be happy with a restructuring of the league to reduce the number of teams in each division to reduce the number of weeks needed (again this would only be for 2021)?
Please let me know if you have any points that you want added to the AGM statement. The current committee members are all prepared to stand for another year, but if you know of anyone who would like to be put forward for one of the roles or to join the committee then please send their details to me by the Monday 8th March.
Best wishes to everyone
Helen, on behalf of the Committee
I have been asked to pass on the news that Ron Neville of Hazelwood and Chase Terrace BC passed away last Monday.
On behalf of the committee and the league I would like to pass on our sympathy to his family and friends.
Mon Sep 7th
It is with great sadness that the committee learnt of the death of George Tweddle on Saturday 5th September 2020.
Until his resignation this spring, due to his failing health, George was one of the main stalwarts of the Cannock League, not only as a player but working in one or more roles on the committee for longer than most of us can remember.
He will be greatly missed, not just for all the years of work he did, but for the character he was on and around the green.Wed Jul 1st
Les from Chadsmoor asked me to pass on to everyone the news that Alf Preece passed away last Saturday. Alf, who was 88, passed away one week after his wife of 60+ years. Neither is thought to have been coronavirus related. Our thoughts are with their family and friends at this very sad time.
The fixtures (with the exception of the Knock out cup details) for 2020 are now live on the system. Fingers crossed there arent any errors but if you spot any problems can you let me know asap please.
Im now working through the contact details and as I update each team I will send out a pdf of the fixtures sheet for your division. Hope to have this finished by the end of next weekend.
I will be organising the draw for the knock out cup asap and will get those on when it has been done.
If I havent yet had your teams contact details then please you e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org the following information for your team or teams.
If possible the following details for 2 contacts for each team@
Name, Team Role, E-mail, Contact Number
Please note that the details for at least one if not both of the teams representatives will be displayed on the website in order to provide contact details for the committee and other clubs. By providing these details you are giving permission for the League to use the details in this way.
