I sincerely trust you are all well.
I am sending you the instructions for completing the affiliations for the 2021 season. I am sending this early so you can start collating the information required. The system will open on the 1st October
and close on 30th November
when all payments will need to have been made.
As you know we returned all the fees with the exception of the Champion of Champion entries. We are carrying forward the entries into 2021 and I will write out separately how we will handle this competition.
The purpose of this note is to ask you to start thinking about gathering in the information you will need. Bowls Surrey have suggested that badges are awarded for all unbadged players that reach the County Quarter Finals in the Open Singles, Two Wood Singles, Unbadged singles, Pairs, Triples and Open Fours. This is an excellent opportunity for unbadged members in your club to gain their county badge.
Please read through the below instructions and circulate your club members to encourage them to enter the competitions especially if they have not entered before and more especially if none of your club members have never entered the County competitions.
Lastly you may have seen notes circulating that the SCBA and SCWBA are to totally merge. Can I in this note state this is not on the cards. Numerous reasons stop this. All we are doing is to bring into line where obtaining your County badge for example is different. No total merger is on the horizon.
