This email is to kick off the 2020/21 Taylor Bowls Super Challenge as well as outline details for the 2020 Grand Finals. Obviously these details are based on the premise that we will be bowling without restrictions.
Firstly, the Grand Finals have been arranged to be played at Adelaide Bowling Club on Sunday 11 October, commencing at 6pm. Obviously in programming the date, it was important to have this night before the commencement of the 2020/21 season. At the same time I was conscious that clubs would want to have all players available (which was unlikely if the games were scheduled too early). Thus this is the day after the first round of Metropolitan pennants.
A reminder of the match-ups…
GOLD West Lakes v Grange
SILVER Marion v Holdfast Bay
BRONZE McLaren Vale v Edwardstown
The second topic is the 2020/21 season. After going through the Bowls SA and MBA calendars, I have found thirteen Sunday nights where games can be played. Two of the nights (1 Nov & 29 Nov) will be Bronze matches only as these dates clash with rounds of the SA Super League. The dates are:
1 November 14 February
15 November 21 February
22 November 7 March
29 November 14 March
13 December 21 March
17 January 28 March
At this stage, all you need to do is start promoting the Taylors competition with your club members. Can clubs please have their nominations to me by the 11th October (Grand Final Night} with number of teams and what divisions etc. That will give me a couple of weeks to sort out the draw.
We would also like our Gold and Silver teams to consider what bowls they may require i.e Size and Colour and potentially which Model SR, SRV or GTR and place their preference with Ashley when doing their nominations, as most bowls will likely come out of Queensland stock first.
