Presidents Message

This Months President’s Message    

AFTER A SHAKY COVID START, 2021 IS STARTING TO TAKE SHAPE. I TRUST YOU ALL WERE ABLE TO HAVE A JOYFUL FESTIVE SEASON, AND I JOIN WITH YOU IN HOPING THAT THINGS SETTLE IN TO A MUCH BETTER AND MORE MANAGEABLE  “COVID NORMAL “ PATTERN IN THIS NEW YEAR, AT LEAST IN AUSTRALIA FOR A START.

NEWS AS I DRAFT THIS MESSAGE IS THAT THE COMMITTEE OF THE NORTH BALWYN BOWLS CLUB HAS  ON THE AGENDA FOR ITS  MEETING ON 21 JANUARY CONSIDERATION OF THE OPENING OF ITS CLUBROOM FACILITIES AGAIN FOR MEETINGS SUCH AS OURS.   IF APPROVAL IS GIVEN IT WILL OBVIOUSLY BE SUBJECT TO SPECIFIED COVIDSAFE RESTRICTIONS SUCH AS WEARING OF MASKS, SIGNING IN, SOCIAL DISTANCING ETC.  WE HOPE ,OF COURSE, THAT THEY MAY SEE THEIR WAY CLEAR TO GIVING US THAT PERMISSION UNDER THE TERMS OF THE PREVAILING REGULATIONS.

I AM PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO ADVISE YOU OF THE FOLLOWING POTENTIAL  NOMINATIONS FOR POSITIONS WITHIN OUR CLUB:  VICE-PRESIDENT – TREVOR MACKEY  AUDITOR -  PETER BROWN

ON BEHALF OF YOU ALL I EXTEND GRATEFUL THANKS TO THEM FOR THEIR WILLINGNESS TO ASSIST THE CLUB IN THIS WAY.

  I WISH I WERE ABLE TO THANK SOMEONE WHO HAS VOLUNTEERED TO RUN THE “OUTINGS “, BUT TO-DATE THAT SOMEONE HAS NOT SHOWN THEIR HAND. I WISH THEY WOULD HURRY UP AS THAT ACTIVITY HAS BEEN SUCH AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF OUR ACTIVITIES IN THE PAST AND WE NEED A VOLUNTEER ,OR VOLUNTEERS, TO ENABLE IT TO CONTINUE.

.I WAS SORRY TO HEAR TODAY THAT OUR MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY, JENY MATTHEWS,  IS NOW HOME IN MELBOURNE NURSING A BROKEN ANKLE AFTER SHE FELL WHILST  WALKING NEAR THE MATTHEW’S HOLIDAY HOME AT APOLLO BAY.  WE SEND HER BEST WISHES FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY

I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING A GOODLY NUMBER OF YOU ONCE AGAIN AT THE FORTHCOMING MEETING ON MONDAY 1 FEBRUARY. PERHAPS IT WILL BE OUR LAST ONE CONDUCTED ON ZOOM? 

Tony Smythe

President
