CVBD have several plans in place

By Brayden May

CAMPAPSE Valley Bowls Division officials have several plans in place to get the season under way.

Last month, ‘plan A’ was revealed, which would see play begin on October 9 (mid-week pennant) and 10 (weekend pennant).

Under the plan, divisions with eight teams would play 14 rounds and those with six teams would play 15 matches.

All games would feature 21 ends.

“The current restrictions in place mean we’re unlikely to go ahead with our original plan,” CVBD chairman Barry Brown said.

“But the committee has been working hard to get other plans in place so we can get people out on the greens.

“Any decision we make about a start date is going to be based around the safety of our players.

“We need to ensure everyone feels comfortable about playing their games.”

Brown said three other potential starting dates had been discussed.

“If we start in either November or December the plan is to play a full season,” he said.

“But if we’re forced to wait until January, we will only fit in half a season.

“There is still a lot of water to go under the bridge before we make a decision.

“The committee has been meeting regularly to keep our clubs and members informed.”

CVBD said for play to go ahead it would require government restrictions to allow for public gatherings of more than 50 people.
