I hope this email finds you well.
We are now well past the half way point in the current season without most of us even lifting a bowl, either in anger or otherwise.
Since the majority of clubs are now closed with little or no chance of playing competitive games.
The West Wilts BA have therefor taken the sad decision to announce that there will not be any resumption, (or indeed start), of the White Horse League during the 2020 season.
We are therefor carrying this season into 2021 with the same Division line-up.
Later in the year we will confirm the Fixture Lists with the new dates, adjusted to recognise the changes we made last year to accommodate Corsham’s Green rebuild.
I can advise that all Fees paid for League and Team Entries will be carried over to next year.
A you will remember there are 2 vacancies for new teams. You will have until November 2020 to advise me of any changes so that revisions to the Fixtures can be made prior to our AGM.
I will issue revised fixture lists by end of July so that your Fixtures Secretary can plan into schedules.
As you know we tragically lost John Butterworth this year. He was a central figure within the West Wilts organisation for many years and created much of the Seniors League infrastructure prior to me taking over. He will be greatly missed by many throughout the Wiltshire Bowling scene.
We will be considering how best we can commemorate his life within West Wilts – any thoughts would be welcome – we will keep you informed of the outcome.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Please be safe and take very good care of yourselves during this difficult period.
