Something's on his Goat
Jack thought he would take a little look at programs, local & national.
Jack has been made aware that the centre have been preparing the handbook for the upcoming season and notes that part of this process includes collating the various galas and events from each club. “Must be a bit of work involved in that”! Jack says. WRONG!
Pretty simple as it happens…..although it shouldn’t be. This is how it works. Apparently Bowls Wellingtons sends out the appropriate forms to be filled in by whomever at each club. The form is set out so clubs can record the list of events they are having during the season including date, time, type of event etc.
So what did Jack pick up when he took a squiz at these completed forms? I’ll tell ya…..NOTHING NEW!
Jack notes that he always hears a lot of noise in relation to nothing ever changing and how club’s are struggling and yet, here they are presented with the opportunity to shake things up and what do they do? They present the same event or gala program as last year and just tweak the dates…...which usually means simply moving the date on by 1 digit. What really get’s on Jack’s goat is, these geniuses re-schedule events that failed the previous season. The mind boggles it does!!!
