New Season Unveiled
New Season Unveiled24 Apr 2021
By the Rituals of Pig-Cutting Ceremony
The virus means we are still far from a return to complete normality. Yet, the challenges presented by COVID-19 shall never curb our bowlers' keenness and enthusiasm!
With support from the Club, the Section tried hard to follow the measures without killing the fun. The traditional pig-cutting ceremony for the new season was held on Saturday 10th April. This annual curtain raiser for the Premier league was then followed by mini-league games, which also served as a warm-up session for the upcoming season. All 78bowlersenjoyed a joyful afternoon of bowling fun with generous servings of delicious roast pork takeaway.
The Section is fielding three teams in the women’s league and six teams in the men’s league. The opening matches for the new season started on 17th April 2021. “Arch-rivals”, Men’s HKFC-A and HKFC-B faced off against each other (again!) in the highest division. The nail biting game produced a real spectacle to watch. Meanwhile, the ladies had a great start to the new season by winning all three games. And our Men’s D team also had a great victory on the same day. Well done!
Special measures and arrangements will be observed in the coming season (e.g. wearing mask while playing indoor games) to safeguard the safety of the players. Many of us have probably had moments in which we wished life would get back to normal, but hey, isn’t it just great to greet all your bowling friends again in the field?
In this new normal, where almost nothing seems entirely normal, we all look forward to a rewarding season and let’s not forget: Happy Bowling!
