Last night I had the pleasure of being the lead guest Coach for the first of 6 nights of coaching at the Campbellford LBC. Steve Carlson asked me last year to spearhead this first evening and I was only to pleased to be asked... and then asked back this year again... must have done something right last year!
From what I understand the CLBC hosts 6 Friday evenings in a row for new bowlers, experienced bowlers and coaches alike. Each week they bring in a Guest Coach to work with the attendees.
What is more impressive is their marketing of this program. Steve showed me newspaper articles (with lovely mug shots of yours truly!) and press releases as well as flyers they had sent to surrounding clubs. Participants this year came from the host club as well as Trenton and Peterborough.
I am really impressed with what Steve and his crew have been doing at their club the last few years and am hoping that he will share his strategy with everyone here in the new future. Steve... are you listening? I then hope to be able to post what he can give me in the Resources section of this site for other clubs to use as a guideline!
