Latest noticeboard -  SUMMER SATURDAY AM FUN LEAGUE   - by Danny Brown

We have been asked to provide for a Saturday am Fun League whilst we are open for the Park Run on Saturday Mornings.
This will run from 9.30am to 11.30am the same way as the Friday Lunchtime Fun League where people can turn up on the day and their scores are retained week on week towards a prize for Winner and Runner up at the end of the Summer Season.
Obviously the more times you play, the greater your chance of winning the top prize so we look forward to seeing as many people as possible on a Saturday Morning
The Fun League is an ideal opportunity to meet people and practice your bowls in a care free environment under match conditions. Do come along and give it a go.
     

Noticeboard extra -  IMPORTANT UPDATE - MAJOR SUMMER CLUB PROJECTS   - by Danny Brown

The Directors of the Lincoln & District Indoor Bowling Club Co Ltd have always sought to deliver the very best facilities for our Club members. We are the envy of most clubs – a lot of whom cannot believe the facilities we offer for the price our members pay.

In seeking to further upgrade facilities once again for the benefit of all, we have actively applied for funding through a variety of avenues including Inspired Facilities, WREN and County Council funding pots.

It is bitterly disappointing to have to announce to the club membership that no fewer than four separate bids for grant funding have all now been declined, in spite of our enlisting experts in grant bidding to assist us. We have reluctantly concluded that the club is too well run to benefit!

If the funding had been awarded, the plan was to:

a) Upgrade the bowls hall lighting from tubes to LED panels (4 of which are currently on trial at the car park end of rink one) at a projected cost of £20,000.

b) Extend the car park - Having already invested around £20,000 obtaining specialist advice for drainage and clearing the area of trees and remaining stumps - to complete and properly tar mac the car park to the outer boundary of the club, to include fencing, lighting and CCTV coverage – at a further cost of c£100,000.

Following the latest and largest bid being rejected, an Extraordinary Board Meeting was called for Tuesday 10th May 2016, at which the Club Directors met to discuss the issues and analyse the options available to the Company.

I AM DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE BOARD DECIDED UNANIMOUSLY TO PRESS AHEAD WIITH BOTH PROJECTS THIS SUMMER and will now self- fund the LED lighting project and borrow funding to accomplish the Car Park extension.

The LED light panels will produce a better light with far less electricity usage and will effectively pay for themselves in around 3 years and the club will benefit from significant savings in electricity year on year thereafter. The Board were unanimous that this longer term saving opportunity should not be delayed. Suitable panels have been sourced and the changeover is likely to take place at the beginning of August 2016. This will be paid for out of existing funds.

The car park extension however will necessitate a very significant bank loan.

We have already had a very generous donation of £1000 from a member towards the car park for which the Directors are extremely grateful.
In addition I have received pledges from 2 further members for another £1500. Obviously, any such donations would lessen the pressure on our borrowing the funds from a financial institution and should anyone feel they can help they can speak to me or Company Secretary Roger Clark in total confidence. (This is not an appeal as such but obviously the club would benefit from such donations should anyone feel they can assist)

The overriding message here is that 'the show goes on' and I will release details of these projects as we progress through the summer, not least the impact to members on car parking.

Please watch this space and should anyone require further information, please don't hesitate to ask me.
