The DCIBA County Finals for 2019-20 were postponed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
These Finals were due to take place at the Dolphin IBC alongside its own finals, which re-opened on 27th July 2020, and has agreed a date in Sept to play its own delayed Finals from 2019-20.
I have been made aware by some players, that there has been an assumption that the Mens County Finals will also take place at the same time.
I can assure you that this is NOT the case, and can confirm that none of the Mens County Finals outstanding from the 2019-21 Season, will be played in Sept 2020.
I shall continue to assess the situation, and do not intend to hold the Dorset Mens County Finals until a time that I feel the conditions are far safer, and more suitable, so that we can all feel at ease and enjoy the occasion, as well as allowing each of the finalists the opportunity to relax and bowl at their best.
This could well mean that the Finals are not played until 2021, but if that is the right thing to do, then that is what will be done.
Please note that I have added another page to the website, detailing the outstanding Finals and Finalists from 2019 / 20, which can be found under the Competitions tab. Please follow the Details link.
Everyone keep safe and well.
DCIBA Competition Secretary.
