Return to bowls - important updates

 Breakers Country Club will be reopening on the 11th October,2021.  We will be resuming bowls on 12th October but there are some important things our members need to have in place before they can enter the Club.

Firstly, you need to be a financial member of Breakers .  They are closing renewals on 8th October so you won’t be able to renew on the 11th at the Club as was previously thought.  You will need to do it online.

You need to have proof of double vaccination.  Unfortunately , it cannot be a letter from you GP. The reason for this , is there have been quite a number of forged documents found in the community.  There is a document you can get from Medicare .  Please let someone on the executive know if you are not sure what to do.

You will not need to go the pro shop before entering the Club .

We will have to enter the Club from the front entrance so Breaker’s staff can see these documents.  That will happen from 9 am on Tuesday. It could be a slow process for this to be completed properly, so we will  aim to be on the green by 10 am.

We are also going to collect our own fees, so no card facility will be available.  It would be appreciated if you could bring the right money - $15 if at all possible.

I am sure there will be more details to follow, but I am looking forward to seeing you all on the green, bowling again on 12th October.

Sad news today

I received the sad news today that Chas Henderson passed away today.Chas, along with his wife Nicki, have looked after the pro shop at Breakers golf course since 2010. Chas and Nicki have looked after us as we navigated our way through new rules with covid sign ins which we all appreciated very much. Our sincere condolences go out to Nicki and her family at this very sad time. I will keep you informed when we have more news about funeral arrangements.

Getting ready

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all coping with our situation at the moment and finding ways to entertain yourselves. To get ourselves ready for a return to bowls I am pretty sure we will need to be able to prove we are double vaccinated. I don't know that for sure of course as I am not setting the rules. To access your covid vaccination certificate, you can go to my.gov.au and then go to medicare link. from there look for immunisation history or vaccination history and it will bring up a certificate giving the 2 dates of your vaccination.I took a photo of my certificate so its on my phone but there is probably a better way to do it than that.For those people without computer access, I am assumong a letter from your Dr will be ok. Its not looking like we will get a return to bowls very soon , but its good to be ready. Remember the Girl Guides motto " Be Prepared " . Cheers everyone, Margaret

Renew your membership

Renew your membership.

I guess by now you have all heard the news of extended lockdown. I could hear a collective groan around 11 am today.  Let’s hope everyone abides by the rules .  That means our first day back at bowls will be 20/7/21 which also happens to be our AGM. We will go ahead if possible so please make sure you have renewed your membership. You can do this online if you have the means or back in the Club as soon as it opens. You need to be financial to stand for positions .

I did try to publish a photo of your latest donation to Women’s Refuges on Central Coast which was 20 moisturisers of different types.Obviously, that didn’t work so you will just have to use your imaginations!   They will be included in “ pamper packs” for the women who find themselves in the refuges.  Thank you everyone for donating your spare cash over the last couple of months. Just a small way we can help to make a difference to these women and children. 

Stay safe and I am sure our Club Coaches would be telling us to keep up our stretches !
