Don Pablo BC Closes
Sol Don Pablo Lawn Bowls Club
Paseo Marítimo s/n, 29620, Torremolinos, Málaga )
For the attention of Mr. R. Jones ( Chairman Malaga F.A.B. )
A few weeks ago our Club advised that we would only be entering a Team in the Costa Del Sol Tigers’ League for the 2018/19 Season. Unfortunately, since that notification, our circumstances have changed dramatically, hence this correspondence.
Problems with long term health, and the fact some Members have opted to Winter elsewhere, has meant that our numbers have reduced to such an extent that we are unable to maintain a meaningful Bowls Club let alone enter a League Team. As a consequence the Committee has decided that our Club will cease to exist as a Club with effect from Friday, 1 June 2018.
We could have waited until October in the hope of recruiting additional Members over the Summer months but we feel this would have been unfair on yourself, as the Chairman of our Association, and Member Clubs. In recent years there have been a number of late withdrawals from the League which has resulted in a disjointed Fixture List.
We would therefore ask that, as a result of this correspondence, you remove Don Pablo’s details from both the Directory of Federated Clubs in the Handbook ( i.e. Pages 8 & 9 of the 2017/18 edition ) and the Federation’s Master List.
We obviously apologise for any inconvenience caused but trust you will understand, and appreciate, why we have taken this early decision. If you have any queries relating to our decision we would ask that you contact us immediately.
In closing, we would like to wish you, your Committee and all other Clubs, every success for the future and trust that subsequent Applications for Membership from our residual, loyal Members will be viewed sympathetically by any Club they approach.
Committee at Don Pablo L.B.C. 31 May, 2018
