NOVEL CORONAVIRUS / COVID - 19 UPDATE (12 June 2020)
Greetings Fellow Indoor Bowlers
Great news this week with the NZ Government announcing that from Tuesday 9 June we can move to Alert Level 1 - what was just a light at the end of the tunnel is now a spotlight focussed on the opening/resumption of the 2020 season.
With the relaxing of all restrictions, events at National, District and Club level can now be rescheduled. Your NZIB Executive will be meeting on 13 June to revise the dates of events for the remainder of the 2020 season - keep an eye on the website for the updated calendar.
Although there are no mandatory public health requirements for community sport under Alert Level 1 your NZIB Executive recommends that Districts and Clubs remain vigilant to minimise any further outbreaks of the disease as follows -
Pleasing to note that some Districts and Clubs have taken advantage of the financial assistance on offer from Sport NZ through their Community Resilience Fund. For those who are still considering making a request for funds from this source you are reminded that applications will close on 19 June. Districts may apply for assistance up to a maximum of $40,000 and Clubs up to $1,000, to offset fixed administration expenses during the Covid-19 pandemic.
As always we thank you all for your understanding, support and co-operation over the various stages of the lockdown. We greatly appreciate your feedback about the numerous ways in which you have kept in contact with your membership over this challenging period…. please accept our congratulations.
Good Bowling for the remainder of the 2020 season!
