The Learning Disability Indoor Bowls International Series Management team are pleased to announce that the next LDIBIS event for the Munro Cup will be held in Cardiff on 15th, 16th & 17th June 2021 (Subject to covid-19 restrictions)
Having had to cancel the organised event in June 2020 due to Covid-19 the team at LDIBIS have been working hard behind the scenes to give our athletes something to plan for and look forward too.
“Covid has affected us all and cancelling the event in June was the right decision but so heart wrenching for all involved,” said LDIBIS Competition Manager Janice Gower, “This announcement is fantastic news. Everyone can start planning for the Munro Cup in 2021.”
Richard Maddieson Operations Manager said, “I am really pleased that we have been able to get the support of the Cardiff Club so that we the team at LDIBIS and the Head Coaches can start to plan ahead for another superb International Series. Of course we do realise that this will still depend on Covid-19.”
“I’m really happy that we can give our dedicated athletes something to look forward to after many months of not knowing if we will ever get back to competition,” commented Head Official Dan Bluett. “We must remember that there’s still a long way to go and the World is changing daily with regards to the covid-19 pandemic but I hope that we can all meet up in Cardiff as planned. I’m sure most, if not all, of our volunteers are also chomping at the bit to be involved once more.”
The athletes would have been disappointed at the loss of the scheduled 2020 games but now they have something to focus on and train for.
The event and the teams are self funded and we have some wonderful supporters but, as all events like these, we are volunteer led and if you would like to make a donation or be involved please do not hesitate to contact us via our Operations Manager Richard Maddieson @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Or contact one of the Countries head coaches.
