Bowls WA to postpone and cancel events
Following the release from Bowls Australia earlier today, the Bowls WA Board has decided in the interests of safety for its members to postpone or cancel a number of events.
The Board further recommends that clubs act similarly in postponing or cancelling social, club and championship events to minimize the risk to its own membership, staff, volunteers and visitors to the club.
Specifically, the following events will be impacted:
Ladies Metropolitan Pennant Finals
As per the email forwarded by Pieter Harris to competing clubs, this event will be finalized today and tomorrow, but at the differing venues as noted to lessen the impact of crowds:
Premier League / 1 White / 4th Division Yokine BC
1st Division Green Nth and Sth Osborne Park BC
2nd & 3rd Division Manning Memorial BC
Men’s Metropolitan Pennant
Both Thursday and Saturday competitions have been suspended immediately and indefinitely.
Although suspended, given the current health climate it is likely that these competitions will be cancelled, however that decision will be taken once further direction is provided by Government and Health authorities in the days and weeks ahead.
