Easter Monday 13th April
In light of both the Government and BCGBA announcements yesterday, it is with deep regret that I have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Les/Mel Evans MBE Invitation Classic.
I have been in contact with all 32 invitees and we discussed different options. All are in agreement that the event will return on Easter Monday 5th April 2021 and all 32 invitees from this year will be automatically invited to compete in 2021.
On a personal note this decision is made with a very heavy heart. That said the health, safety and welfare of us all has to be paramount.
Both our physical and mental health and well-being will be severely tested in the coming days, weeks and months. Please look after yourselves, your families and spare a thought for your friends and neighbours who may simply benefit from the odd phone call or message. This global crisis will have a long-lasting impact on physical, mental, emotional and financial health and well-being.
From my own personal experience I know the bowling community unites in times of hardship. There is nothing stopping the bowling community continuing that support for each other but it needs to be done in a different way until we come through the other end.
Stay safe everyone.
