July Update 3 COVID Competitions
Biddenden Bowls Club
COVID 19 Competitions - update from Paul
The special competitions arranged this year are progressing well.
The Yardstick is almost at the Semi-Final stage with three of the four participants known: Norman, Veronica and Ralph. Just a couple of games in the other group to be played this week.
The first of the Drawn Pairs ties were played this weekend with further matches arranged during this week.
The draw for the Covid Bowl and Mixed Singles has been made, details on the Web Pages. Matches are 12 ends, with four bowls each player. Everyone will play at least two games, playing everyone in their “round robin” league, two points will be awarded for a win and one for a draw. The winners of each of the three groups will progress to the semi-finals along with the best placed second. It is important that all league games are played the full 12 ends as shot difference may be important in determining final league positions.
Please arrange to play your matches by the 31 July, if possible, don’t forget to book your rink slot and arrange a “Marker”
A further very exciting competition … “Covid Pairs Scramble” this will provide an opportunity for you to play with three different partners providing lots of friendly competition in groups.
More information and entry details are available on the COVID 19 Competitions page.
