Just thought I should share a bit of my findings over the past few days in regard to the Nelsonboardriders surf club.
Basically, surfers are non-fuss people and organizing a surf club is a bit like trying to get the lead singer of a grunge band to wear a suit.
We had a little bit of a get together friday evening and things such as "blanket sponsor" and "make the club bigger and better" were some focus topics and whilst all this sounded great after speaking to a great friend and business mentor yesterday I was eluded to the point of........why !!??
The quote was "dont set yourself up for a fall"... and then the old fashioned, if its not broken dont fix it came about.
I was then made aware that people love the club for what it is, GrassRoots.
The problem we face is having some play money to do projects with.. but then this friend of mine posed another question and the bizarre thing was that I had no answer to it,.,,
The question was "If I gave the club 100k" what would you do with it??
... I had no answer.... because I didnt know....
Pop up gazebo for shitty weather snappers for the mums and the spectators was about it,,,,
Basically a shipping container in the carpark with all our shit in it....
This is where I hand the microphone over to you guys...
