Happening at the Club

October 30, 2021

 Following a recent statement from Bowls NZ the Management Committee voted on 1st November 2021 that Hutt Bowling Club will be a Club that requires vaccination.
The Bowls NZ statement was fully discussed and endorsed at the Bowls Wellington Delegate’s meeting on 2nd November. The Bowls Wellington vaccination statement was published and circulated to clubs the following day.

Clubs that do not declare as vaccinated Clubs will not be able to host Bowls Wellington events, including Centre events, Interclub, Pennants, Champion of Champions and Bowls 3-Five. To play in these events at outside vaccinated Clubs will require vaccination certificates.
Similarly,  declared vaccinated Clubs will not be able to allow unvaccinated entrants into Galas or other events or they will breach their vaccinated status.

The consequences of not being a vaccinated Club will also include inability to run bar facilities in any other than a very restricted way and it will be impossible to hold the corporate events from which we derive significant income.

There was general acceptance of the policy by Delegates, although sadness was expressed that some people who decline vaccination may be lost to Bowls.

The Management Committee voted that we should be a vaccinated Club because we firmly believe that being fully vaccinated  is essential for the protection of individuals and society as a whole.
