Covid Update August 2020
Back in Business - Sort of!
Well, here we are, mid August and there still doesn't seem to be an end in sight for this horrible virus. Some clubs in Canada have been able to get back up and running according to their provincial protocols. Kudos to those provinces for dealing with the pandemic in a timely and judicious manner. Some may have rushed their various along a little too quickly.
We are not out of the woods yet, and Brenda and I would like to encourage all Lawn Bowlers to take care when starting up their bowls activities again. The protocols of safe distancing, wearing a mask when distancing is not possible, and keeping your bowls and hands sanitary should be adhered to at all times. Covid19 does not take a vacation, even for a minute!
About eight weeks into the shutdown we were allowed to both offer curbside pickup (from our garage) and also to send parcels out via Canada Post. We have been pleased that we have now been open long enough to get all the special orders that arrived in our first shipment out to all concerned. We thank you for your patience in these trying times.
We have also been able to supply, from our current stock, bowls for various clubs that were fortunate to receive their grants this year.
We have a follow up shipment of Back Ordered product that didn't make the first shipment and we anticipate its arrival in the next 7 - 14 days. As usual something gets in the way of an expedient journey and this year is no exception. We have been advised there is currently a dock strike in Montreal and our shipment may be diverted elsewhere so that it may find its way here.
Our protocols will remain the same throughout this 2020 year, unless some miracle happens and Covid19 decides it has finally done enough damage. We will offer curbside pickup and Canada Post delivery only. Our retail and coaching showroom will be closed to the public until further notice. We trust that 2021 will bring us better times and we will be able to offer our vaunted retail experience once again.
If you wish curbside pickup, please email or phone us and we will arrange for a time when it is safe to do so. We will send you both our protocols and directions. We will be wearing a mask at the time of pickup and would ask you to do the same.
Most of all, Brenda and I wish everyone the best of health, and we hope to see everyone again as soon as possible.
Stay Safe - Be Well!
Dan & Brenda
