Help Required

General Reminder - Volunteering

The ongoing success of the Club for more than 80 years can be attributed solely to the efforts of its volunteer members. Unlike many other larger clubs, Nambour relies on the "lend a hand" philosophy. A helping hand is always appreciated so if you would like to help in any way, please come forward and don’t wait to be asked. Everyone has some special skills and/or experience which could prove beneficial. Little jobs like bringing in the flag and water coolers, clearing tables, cleaning benches and washing dishes arise every bowls day. Many other jobs require a team effort and on these occasions a working bee is usually organised.

Newsletter Scribe

Regular newsletters are an important element in effective club communications. Everyone enjoys reading them and they are also well received by visitors. With the advent of computers, email and other modern technologies, it is much easier to produce informative and interesting one or two page newsletters than it was 30 years ago. Today there are also many more activities and events on the program. Ideally one or two members could share this task so if you can help in any small way, please say so. Training will be provided and guidance is always available.

Assistance with the collation of weekly results and the preparation of a brief report for the local newspaper/s is also necessary. Games Controllers can assist greatly by summarising the respective activities.

Results Co-ordinator

To simplify the task of producing match reports for the local media and also for input into the Club newsletter and website, a well prepared concise summary of each event would assist greatly these objectives. The saying that "the job's not done until the paper work is finished" is true when it comes to the end of another day at bowls. Sifting through the week's score cards on a Monday morning for results and newsworthy information is an unwelcome task. One page Match Reports have been designed to simplify the task for everyone involved and these are held on the wall near the Games Desk.

Facebook Facilitator

Facebook is an exceptional marketing and communications medium which is recognised as a 'must have' in business today. In the world of lawn bowls and club activity, Facebook offers identical benefits through its speed and networking capabilities. Anyone with an interest, skills and a desire to assist in managing the Club's own Facebook account would provide tremendous support.

Get Well Soon

For those members who may be on the "Sick List" either through a personal or family related illness, and others who might be just sick of bowls for the present, we wish you good health and a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with you. Please drop into the Club as soon as you are well enough and re-energise through the enjoyment of the game and the company of friends.

Memorabilia

If anyone has access to memorabilia of any sort relating to the Nambour Bowls Club, please come forward and let us know. Items such as old photographs, newspaper articles, club badges, trophies or even a set of old wooden bowls would be of great interest to members. Many of our pioneering members were not only keen bowlers but instrumental in the development of our town and other facilities. Their stories and achievements are worthy of reflection.

Thank You Note

The Club is very much dependent upon the contribution of its members, many of whom toil unselfishly in a voluntary capacity for the betterment of the Club and others. We acknowledge their generous support and are reluctant to single out individuals for special mention.
