Man this sounds familiar. I had suggested almost the same thing months ago in 2010 open ideas format for improvements on the upcoming next years open. My suggestion was met with critisism for all of the "extra work " it would take to do that.
Oh well, my guess is this "old man" was waaayyy ahead of the curve for this kind of idea.
I guess it does not matter who suggest the ideas, just so long as ideas are given.
Quote by Brian Auger "Successful conversation, will take you very far."
Always one of the hardest parts of any organization is open venues of communication. It takes effort and time but it pay great dividends. The LAKERS
just assembled a team a number of weeks ago so we could go up to Iowa and take 1st in a team match golf event between 3 other teams form 2 states. It was a huge amount of work, but that event was one of the funnest events we had ever taken part in. There were hours of meetings and even more time on the phone and texting, making a website and hunting sponsers all take time as well. Yes, there were bumps in the road. Some people had to cancel at the last week or closer, but with all of the communication we had we were able to overcome the obstacles to still enjoy and preform well. Just look at the turnout of well publicized events compared to the quieter/smaller events. I like to think the RCF has good communication skills but we can always scoure other clubs for their better ideas on how to spread the word and incorporate those ideas into our club.
