The Forbes bowling greens are open for roll ups, under the COVID 19 rules. Regular updates are followed from Bowls NSW and Women's Bowls NSW.

The latest update stated that the club must keep (for four weeks) records of who has played, in case tracking is needed.

The popular times to have a social roll up still seems to be Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday. Although you will find the greens open every day from 10am until 5pm. The safety rules are posted on the walls of the club so stick to those rules until the club get the all clear.

Last Wednesday it was fantastic to see all the greens being used. Both ladies and men turned up in force for a roll up.

It seems that many bowlers are in need of lots of practice to get back to their usual good standard of play.

Nomination are now open for club championships. There is a book in the 'shed' to fill in. See Scotty Andrews if you can't find it.

The club championships will go ahead as soon as we get the all clear to play. So, get your name in the various events.

Away from the local greens interesting to note The Bowls Show is back on TV.

Season 4 of The Bowls Show will run from Sunday May 26 to October 10 in the national timeslot of 3pm.

Jack Heverin will return to the hosting role of The Bowls Show, in addition to anchoring the commentary of events alongside the sport's biggest personalities, with highlights of events to feature in the program to include the BPL09, Australian Open and Australian Indoor Championships.

Also, check out "Roll Back The Clock At Home" on the Bowls Australia website. It is a great exercise program to keep bowlers fit while not playing so much.

After last Wednesday a few locals might need such exercise especially the male player who left the green early due to the wet, must have been half dozen spots.

Catch you on the greens for a roll up at the 'Bowlie'.
