 NEW MEMBERS VERY WELCOME - from the manager

Please check here for any further information about the Open Day (Saturday 14th September 2019 9.30am – 4pm) mentioned below. Current members, if you are interested in helping, please have a word with Danny Brown or Paul Davies.

If you are a visitor looking in for the first time and like the look of our facilities, please do come along and see us. We are now into Half Year Memberships from June onwards - very reasonably priced at £20 Full Members and £19 for Senior Members aged 65 & over. Our Junior Memberships remain at just £1 for ages 16 and below.

If you don't think the bowls is for you but wouldn't mind using the club's restaurant and bar facilities why not try a Social Membership? We have BINGO sessions every Wednesday and Saturday nights commencing at 6.30 and a half year Social Membership will cost you just £7.50.
 
 CURRENT MEMBERS - CONSIDER THESE FACTS:
  • The Club's playing membership has fallen from 1065 in 2013 to 900 in 2019.
  • The average age of an LIBC member is ever increasing.
  • Quite a few members give up the game year on year due to illness etc.
  • On average, approx 100 new members sign up each year.
  • But only 50 of those remain with us longer than two years.
SO WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?  The Board of Directors and the Club Management Committee recognise that there is an urgent need to both recruit and retain members if we are to sustain the Club. They are taking active steps to address these issues and further improve both our support and facilities for new members including::
  • Agreeing an Action Plan with the assistance of the Bowls Development Alliance.
  • Massively increasing our effort towards advertising and marketing the club in the Lincoln area. 
  • Creating the 'LINK UP' initiative dedicated to assisting and integrating new members.
  • Planning 'open days' where potential new members can experience the club first hand.
CAN YOU HELP? YES! Our first Open Day will be:
'Bring a Friend' on
Saturday 14th September 2019 from 9.30am – 4pm.
Please help us by encouraging your friends, neighbours, family members etc to attend. We require helpers in the following roles (volunteers to Danny Brown or Paul Davies asp please):
  • On Open Day - Club Ambassador – to greet visitors on open day.
  • On Open Day - Coaching Assistant – assisting our coaches on open day.
  • After Open Day - New Member Facilitator – to be a 'buddy' to groups of new members, to provide friendly assistance to help them to settle in, and to try and find the answers to all those questions new members inevitably have!
   

 Coach's Corner:
  
Ask not what the club can do for you – Ask what you can do for the club ( a nod to J F K )  
   - by Howard Jarrold


One aspect of the game of bowls that I like is the fact that wherever it is played the camaraderie and friendship is a constant and the membership of clubs up and down the land will mirror ours in that they will have members that rely heavily on the club as a home that provides friendship and companionship when it is most needed.
Many take up the game when more physical sports start taking their toll, and soon get hooked by its subtle combination of line and length.
Children and young adults often take up the game having been introduced by relatives.
And of course, in modern parlance it ....... ....... .......

VERY SAD NEWS   
   - by Gordon Wood

---This is from the Mansell family and was the best way we could think of to contact all his friends. ---

This is one of the hardest things to write but we unfortunately lost our Husband, Dad, Grandad and Great Grandad on Friday, at midday, following an unexpected admission to hospital Wednesday evening due to his angina. Unfortunately he deteriorated through the night and underwent an emergency procedure and due to him being far worse than anyone knew, as in his typical style he never complained (unless it was about Trump or Politics), he did not recover and we had to let him go.

Please ....... ....... .......

   - by Danny Brown

A big thank you to Steve, George and Joy from the LIBC Coaching Team who took the travelling mat to a disabled event at The Showroom, Tritton Road, Lincoln on Monday 17th June 2019.
Looks like a good time was had by all and there were a few willing budding bowlers!
Thanks too to Steve Tinker for arranging transportation of the mat and equipment
