Called to the bar

Peter Cross explains why he’s just put himself forward as a voluntary bar person

I’ve been a member of the club a few months shy of a decade. During that time there have been five presidents, three managers and hundreds of newsletters. And of the many newsletters I’ve seen almost all contain a line or two imploring members to help out behind the bar. The hope is to have enough volunteers to have one person for each day of the month. It’s a losing battle. Helping out only once a month is the big selling point which to my mind is a bit like urging people to go to the dentist as it doesn’t hurt too much.

I read these guilt inducing pleas so often and felt so bad that I did what any sensible person does in the circumstances: I stopped reading the newsletters. But a seed had been planted and I continued to feel awful seeing the same faces smiling at me as I ordered my pints of Mac Gold. Without exception each person is good natured, unfazed, and friendly. I told myself that I’d never be able to master the till: I’m a late adopter and struggle with anything invented since the sundial.

Only the brave will be out walking

I've always thought that in the animal world, bears have the right lifestyle. Eat all summer and sleep all winter. I am at my laziest in winter and I have to have a plan to ensure that I don't become too much like a sloth when I feel cold.

The Plan. And you definitely need a plan. If you don't have a plan then you are not going to move.

Need help? 

If you would like me to sit down with you to develop a winter exercise regime for you to achieve, then I am only a text or email away. There's no charge but I won't say no to a coffee. 

Do you want a new class time? 

If you would like a new class time for you and your friends then simply email or text me the time and day that would suit you and your friends and I will try to make it a permanent class time for Term 2. Otherwise class times are Monday and Thursday 9:30am
