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.
