DOLLAR SPOTTING

Please note that our Greens have been hit with ‘Dollar Spotting’ also known as the fungus ‘Clarireedia Jacksonii’ this is the reason D green has been closed, A, B & C are also slightly infected.

This fungus is not uncommon and affects our greens most years but not usually this early and is caused by low nighttime temperatures and dew dampness and if it seriously takes hold the greens could be in jeopardy.

All greens have been treated accordingly and D green will reopen Friday June 17, however it can be commonly spread by shoes from contact with other bowling club or golf course greens, therefore  as a precaution we are requiring everyone who comes to bowl to spray their shoes with spray detergent and use the shoe cleaning machine, both are located at the left side clubhouse door, this is MANDATORY for everyone who comes to bowl at JDF LBC.

It will be the responsibility of all members to comply and for BSI Coordinators to inform all league participants accordingly. Please do your part to protect our greens, your cooperation is required and necessary.

MONDAY NIGHT LADDERS LEAGUE PLAY

Monday Ladders is due to start at the end of the month on June 27th. This League is perfect for players of every level. The games are designed so that you play members of your own skill level making it fun and competitive for all players.

JDF LBC RESOURCES

Clubhouse Bulletin Boards:

  • Games: Your Games Committee have worked hard to ensure all the Posters for Leagues and Tournaments are displayed in a timely manner allowing members to be informed of what is happening currently and any upcoming events.
  • Social: Our Social Coordinator has her own Notice Board right outside the kitchen!
  • Novices’: Check out our new novices’ photos next to the “tag board”, welcome them aboard by introducing yourself and saying Hi.
  • Coaching: Look for the latest news on coaching courses and pictures of our Club Coaches

Notice Board: A new addition this year is the notice board located on the wall outside the Clubhouse at the equipment shed end. Gary works off the Games Committee’s notices to display all our League information and keep the Up & Coming Events current as well. Just don’t interrupt him or you get a new game the committee knows nothing about called Rop In Bowling 😊

Website: All items on the Clubhouse Bulletin Boards are also on the Website (except the sign-up lists). One of the newest features on the website is the Calendar (under Bowling Events) which has all Club & BSI events entered on the correct dates.

Members: Last and definitely not least, are our own members. There is a wealth of information just waiting for you to tap into. If you want information that you can’t find from the above-mentioned resources, then ask a member and if they don’t have an answer, they will point you in the direction of the person who does.

WEBSITE

Our goal is to build the Website up as a useful resource for all things bowling. Our latest additions are listed below along with links. Please take some time to review what we have created. If you have requests or suggestions, CONTACT US and if possible, we will incorporate them. Currently what we have under construction are a Player Development page, Updated Photo Gallery, Online Registration for Tournaments, Tournament Histories and CoP. Lots to look forward to in the future.
