Message from the Club President – Coronavirus (COVID-19)

I hope you are all well in these troubling times and washing hands and social distancing. It is now almost 8 weeks since our closure in accordance with Bowls Australia and Bowls Queensland directives.

The Kirwan Sports Club renovations are proceeding apace with the completion date being approximately early July 2020. The Management Committee has met with Justin Wilkins, CEO of Brothers Leagues Club this evening to discuss planning for a return to playing bowls. It has been confirmed to us that a start is not possible before the completion of the renovations and because of the limited trading possible under the Roadmap Stages released last week.

For those not aware the Roadmap to easing Queensland’s restrictions from Covid -19 has three stages, Stage 1 commencing 16 May 2020 allows up to 10 people to dine at Clubs, with Stage 2 commencing 12 June 2020 increasing that to 20 people. Finally Stage 3 allows for a maximum of 100 people. These numbers in relation to Bowls Clubs include inside Club patrons plus bowlers on the green.

As time goes on things may change but prepare yourselves for a further 6-7 weeks of inactivity.

Please stay safe.
