What if it rains ?
It should be noted that any decision to cancel an event WILL be made by Rock n Bowl (NOT THE CLIENT). If sprinkling or lightly raining the event will still proceed (we have shelter, umbrellas and we provide ponchos free of charge). If the bowls component of the day is cancelled due to rain, all pre-ordered catering must be consumed at Manly Bowling Club on the event day/time. Rock n Bowl staff will endeavour to contact all clients on the day at least 1 hour prior to rain-affected events however please don’t hesitate to call us if you have any concerns.
The greens drain quickly therefore it needs to be raining quite heavily for us to call off your bowling session.
