TO CHANGE OR BE CHANGED, THAT IS NOT A QUESTION!


Jack noticed the results of the latest Bowls Wellington survey and sees some scary figures.
9 clubs with over 100 members but only 3 of those clubs have over 100 PLAYING members.

Don’t forget bowlers, playing or non playing!
 
Jack also notices that some clubs have membership categories that are a little cloudy. As far as Jack is concerned, it is Black and White, your members are either playing bowls or they are NOT playing bowls.

If they play bowls then they pay a levy, if they don’t play bowls then they don’t pay a levy. There is no such allowance that let’s bowlers play in certain events or non centre events but NOT pay a levy!

Jack hopes that clears up the confusion.

Jack also notices that some of the 9 clubs that that have over 100 members have very few playing members but many social members. Jack does not necessarily see this as a bad thing but are those social members playing any kind of bowls? If not, why not? Don’t forget bowlers, clubs first priority in this respect, is to promote and grow the game of bowls, not promote the bar! Be careful as licensing authorities are watching.

  1. So social members who want to play 1 or 2 galas etc a year and nothing else have to pay a levy and Jack wonders why membership is falling !

    1. Get real, where would you draw the line....3 galas, 4 galas? This filters down from Bowls NZ, not Bowls Wellington. I'm sure Jack is wondering about the mentality of some of the people making these comments haha.

  2. If a player is a member of more than one club should is there a good reason why they pay more than one levy? What is it used for

    1. Ask your own club the same question ning nong. If one member belongs to 2 clubs, does one of those clubs let that member join for free? Think about it! Possibly avoid drinking before publishing your comments!

    2. Call me what you like but the question was what is the levy for. Because a player is a member of 2 clubs is there twice the work for bowls nz or whoever else it goes to. The way I see it there could be a good legal case here for all the dual members that have paid 2 Levys for years.

    3. Mr Ning Nong. Why don't you ask Bowls NZ what the levys are for? Perhaps send a msg to Bowls Wellington and ask them, that's what I do.
      Good luck with the case Colombo.
