A report from Devizes BC
On Saturday 7th May we held our annual Open Day from 10am – 1pm. From the very start the room was full of people – first of all there was a great group of members who had generously given up their time to help to introduce our visitors to the game we all love to play. Then, from 10am there was a constant flow of prospective bowlers – all keen to see what the game is all about. Each one was allocated to a ‘host’ and guided through the necessary paperwork before being helped with equipment and taken onto the green to ‘have a go’. There was a constant supply of tea and coffee and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves – there was plenty of chatter and activity in the room and on both greens throughout the entire morning.
A big thank you must go to all the members who helped both on the greens and in the clubhouse – we could not have run the event without you so your contribution was invaluable. We had approximately 40 visitors and more than 30 of them are planning to attend the follow up coaching sessions over the next few weeks so this was a hugely successful morning. Thank you everyone!!
This event was run as a BDA Silver Package Event.
