Zoom meeting this Thursday – 1:15 for 1:30 start
Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video.
Zoom is free and each free session can last for 40min. which is enough.
Just need PC with camera and audio.
The Web address to click on is https://zoom.us/j/773982820 to be connected this Thursday to other bowlers of JBC. It should start automatically and then follow the prompts.
Firstly, I hope everyone is well and taking care of family and friends. During this not so nice period it’s important to keep in touch with each other, a quick phone call or email can lift the spirits and make a big difference.
Now down to business, as you all would be aware Chris B has said we need to remove the shade cloth from greens before the colder and in particular more windy months approach.
We are looking to gather a number of people to the club but keep numbers to say two people per shade cloth run.
The date would be Thursday 9/4/20 8:30am. If you can assist fanatastic.
PLEASE, if you are uncomfortable about attending that is not a problem it will be understood. If you can assist please let me know so we can pencil in volunteer numbers.
Reply to email or to email@example.com if you are available to help.
On behalf of JLBC
I hope you are all keeping well and following the Health Department and Government guidelines in regard to social distancing and self-isolation as necessary in these troubled times.
Just to keep you updated -
Your committee met last Wednesday and made the following decisions:
· Greens closed until at least 2 April pending review
· Presentation night 1 May postponed
· Singles and mixed pairs championships postponed
· Corporate bowls cancelled
· Bingo cancelled pending review
· Open forum meeting set for 8 April cancelled
· AGM set for 20 May to continue at this stage
We have another meeting scheduled for the 2nd of April but the latest Government directives have the effect of extending some of the above decisions.
As many of you will know, the Australian Government decided on Sunday that as part of the fight against COVID-19 that all licensed clubs would have to close from midday yesterday the 23rd March.
Naturally this applied to our club premises managed by the Joondalup Sports Association which is now closed until further notice with regard to bar trade and functions. Please note that as the JSA’s liquor license extends to cover our bowling greens and surrounds this means that they therefore must remain closed until further notice.
Our greens will continue to be maintained during this period of closure in preparation for a quick return once we get the all clear to reopen. Greenkeeper Craig will be taking some leave on and off during this time and Wes will continue his part time hours. I thank the greens committee and volunteers for their continued support during this time but fully understand if they cannot continue in the circumstances.
Our bowling club is in a strong financial position and we expect to be able to ride out this storm during a period of uncertainty and no income. We are hopeful that the JSA can also bounce back and send our best wishes to all the JSA staff who unfortunately find themselves unemployed or stood down for the time being.
The Pitch Inn will continue to operate from Thursdays to Sundays for takeaway meals only. 0403 788 599.
I will advise you all further following our next committee meeting especially in regard to the AGM.
Hopefully we can all keep in touch via email, telephone or social media especially the JBC Facebook but for the time being please keep safe.
David Webber Acting President 24/3/20
Closed until further Notice
While the incidence of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is still low in Western Australia, the health of our patrons, community and volunteer staff is our greatest priority.
Joondalup Bowling Club Bingo is therefore cancelled until further notice
We will continue to monitor the situation via the Health Department of WA website (www.health.wa.gov.au) and encourage you to do the same.
Thank you for your understanding and see you all again soon!
David Webber President
Scott Baldock Bingo Manager
We have a wrong bias tin in which members deposit $2.00 if they happen to put down a wrong biased bowl. So if you are playing pennants, a championship event, and social bowls or even just practicing we are sure your fellow bowlers will remind you about the tin, if you happen to forget. In the time the wrong bias tin has been going over $950.00 has been raised to go towards a donation to Cancer research and Legacy.
Thank you to all those members who continue to forget to look at the bias before delivery
