On Saturday 20th September the first of five Bowls Wiltshire Roadshows took place. We are very grateful to the members of Salisbury BC who gave up their time to host the event and provide refreshments.
The idea was born earlier this year when the P&E Committee decided that there was a need to find a way to explain some of the Administrative processes involved in running a Bowls Club as part of Bowls Wiltshire. In particular the areas of Communication, Membership, Coaching and Umpiring were selected for inclusion. We appreciate that Club Officers are all volunteers and that they often need some help with the tasks they find themselves having to deal with so we decided to make it easy to attend a seminar by taking it to different areas of the County and inviting a manageable number of Clubs to send 3 Officers (suggested Secretary, Treasurer and Club Contact but any interested member could replace one of these if required) This was with the intention of facilitating a discussion which is not possible with a larger meeting.
The first one was successful on most of these counts although the attendance was a bit disappointing. Our thanks to those who attended and contributed to the very useful and informative discussions that took place.
We hope to have more Clubs represented at the next four events…
