- Please don’t place Bowls Bags on the seats.
- When ‘turning-over’ the score board, after the game, turn the ‘numbers’ towards the front
- Return scorecards to the controlling body immediately on completion of the match.
- As you leave a green (whether after organized bowls or just a ‘roll-up’) – look around you:
º If shades are still extended… roll them in (even if you didn’t extend them)
º Ensure all mats & jacks are returned to their respective Mat Box
º If yours is the last rink to finish on a green, ensure the Mat Box is locked
º Return all empty glasses to the bar (the sprinklers will blow them off the drink stand) and recycling bottles and cans in the blue lidded recycling bins.
º Return water barrels & cup holders to the bar
- Look after the greens! They are our major asset, eg:
º Move the mat to even out the wear.
º Don’t drop bowls from the bank.
º Don’t ‘dump’ your bowls or ‘shoot from the hip’
Please look after the greens, they are there for all to enjoy !
These are all very simple things that we ALL should be doing. Please don’t leave it to ‘someone else’ .
We ALL have an obligation to ‘Do The Right Thing’
If you see someone not complying… please politely remind them of their obligation as it is our Club for our benefit
