The Zone 9 Executive has made the decision to CANCEL this year's VETS/SUPER-VETS DAY that was scheduled for 6th April at Harbord BC.  Every bowls organisation has a duty of care to its members and a non-essential gathering of a relatively large number of bowlers whose age, let alone the presence of any other co-morbidity factors, puts them in a higher-risk category for COVID-19, simply cannot be held.


It is our understanding that BNSW is holding an urgent meeting this week to discuss the future of bowls events, especially Pennants, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Until we hear otherwise from BNSW, we carry on as planned with the 2020 Zone 9 Pennant Season.


If individuals choose to withdraw from Pennants or other Club/Zone events, then clearly that is their right to do so and no-one should argue against or criticise their standpoint.


Please monitor this website and your emails for updates.


Mark Alexander (Zone 9 Secretary)
