BDA Annual Review

I've received the attached concerning the Bowls Development Alliance Review. It's interesting to see what efforts are being made to promote this game we enjoy.

Hopefully this link will work. If not let me know and I'll try again!!

To blog or not to blog? - that is the question.

Only four responses so far from those members who were contacted about the Penlee Bowls Blog - three for and one against. 

At present the blog is open to all, otherwise no-one but me would be able to see it!!  However, once up and running it would become a closed blog; only members of the club who have been invited to join the blog would be able to view it and make comments.  The blog would be a kind of social networking site but with very restricted membership and a world away from "Twitter", "Facebook", "Friends Reunited" and other such websites.

New idea

Come on - admit it - very few members of the Penlee Bowling Club even know we have a website, let alone have visited it.  The website is designed to provide information about the club to bowlers from other clubs and to people who may be thinking of trying out the game.  In a sense it's not the end of the world that members have chosen to ignore it. 

It has been suggested that the website could be used as a means of communicating information to members by adding a new "Latest News" page but there are technical difficulties in doing that with our existing site. As an alternative this "blog" has been set up.  It's very experimental at this stage - still working on the idea - but the kind of thing that could be put up on the blog would be team selections, match results and reports, photographs etc. The blog could also be used as a 'forum' for discussion between members of the club.

What do you think?  Is the idea a runner?
