The BLI Championships for 2021 started last night in brilliant sunshine at President Pat Wall’s home club Westmanstown. The fans who traveled to support their fellow bowlers were treated to a great nights bowling. Unveiled on the night was the new BLI Electronic Scoreboard a phot of which is included here. The new scoreboard as well as the website online scoring system are fed from the same file so those that cannot attend can keep up to date with the on green scoring.

Just a little note.
The BLI Championships will be run as per previous years and will not be using the guidelines for play that the BLI executive recommended at the start of the season like 3 meters minimum distance from the ditch, individual jacks etc.
Wishing all competitors and clubs a fabulous week.
Best of luck to all

Dear Fellow Bowler,
I attach a statement from Crumlin B.C. in relation to the information that three members of their club have recently tested positive for Covid.
The BLI Executive have discussed the situation and are satisfied that the individuals concerned and the club itself have observed all the necessary protocols and all precautions are in place as outlined in their statement.
All matches and fixtures involving Crumlin players should go ahead as normal. I appeal to visitors to the club to cooperate with their requirements in the best interests of all.
I would also ask that where a club is aware that a member may have been infected with Covid they notify me so that the BLI can take appropriate action.
