WORD FOR THE DAY!
People, let’s be honest, you can’t please everyone. No matter how hard you try, it just isn’t possible. So before you point the finger, perhaps actually think about the dynamics of what you are about to suggest. Sometimes the wish list of bowlers is just not feasible and comments are made without a lot of thought or knowledge of what is required. So Jack encourages ideas and views, that is healthy, however those ideas should come with solutions attached. It’s easy to criticize but unless you have a better solution then…….?
Let’s talk about your club. As any good club member will tell you, there is always something that needs doing. It could be anything from promoting an upcoming event to weeding the garden or running the garage sale.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what the task is, if you pitch in and do it, it all counts.
As we rapidly approach the new season, secretaries and match committee’s start to scramble to sort their programme. So what’s on the agenda? Jack said this last year, it’s the same old same old. C’mon, you can’t expect to put out the same events year after year and expect enthusiasm.
Now Jack can hear you say….”surely that applies to Bowls Wellington as well”? Yes & No. Bowls Wellington is limited here as we answer to the bowlers. We put out the events you ask for, simple as that. However you have a real opportunity each year to be different, so don’t be afraid to step out of the square and give it a go.
When a member puts their hand up and say…”I’d like to give this a go”, don’t knock them back just because they are a first year bowler. Try it, what have you got to lose?
