MOJACAR BOWLS CLUB COMMITTEE LATEST UPDATE 10
Subject: Covid 19 IMPORTANT NOTICE to all members
Due to the New restrictions that come into effect from midnight tonight Monday 9th November The planned Committee Meeting and the Club Singles Championship Semifinals and Final, have to be suspended due to the fact that people cannot travel out of their municipality for the next two weeks until 23rd Nov when this will be reviewed again by the Junta.
The date of the next meeting will be advised when we know it is OK to travel again. Also the planned AGM will have to be rescheduled when we know more. Members living outside of Mojacar will not be able to leave their municipality to bowl.
Please note: You guy’s coming out from the UK will need to quarantine yourselves from the Bowls Club for 7 days. If by so doing, you would miss the entry closing date of a certain competition AND you are actually in Spain, then let a committee member know, so that your name can be added to the Entry form within the deadline.
Good luck everybody, may the best bowlers win.
** NEW MBC STATEMENT Wednesday 2nd September **
Following a meeting that our President Verna Bimpson and myself had with the management of Hotel Marina Playa this morning, they have confirmed that the hotel will be closed from October 12th 2020, until February 2nd 2021, as will all other hotels in Mojacar.
We discussed MBC's requirements during the closure period, and they have confirmed we can carry on bowling and that the water and electricity connections will be left on for us. Apart from a final clean they will only carry out a clean two times per month, which is insufficient to comply with the Protocol for us operating, therefore the cleaning which needs to be rigorously carried out after each bowling session, will be down to the club, and will be discussed at the next committee meeting
We have agreed with the hotel that no subscriptions will be paid until the hotel opens again in February, meaning that there will be no charge for the period that the hotel is closed, and all subscriptions will commence in February 2021.
For your extra information, talks are ongoing with FAB as to whether it will be possible to play leagues or winter competitions and as soon as we have firm news we will let you all know.
Rest assured that your committee are working in your best interests to keep everything going and to ensure that we all remain safe while bowling.
