A Cautionary Tale for Golf and Sporting Clubs
This book describes the management history of some North-West Coast Tasmania golf clubs, with focus on Seabrook golf Club. There is also a sobering message for all persons interested in playing golf.
Non-profit organisations that rely on volunteers to take on management roles lack control over the quality of the resulting business decisions. The apathy shown by the organisation's members is a chief cause. Sporting clubs provide examples. The lessons provided herein will have application at hundreds of other, non-profit organisations exposed to decisions made by volunteer committees. RRP $20.00. This book can be purchased by going to the Contact page and printing out the purchase form. Postage $2.70
This book should be read by every director
of every golf club in Australia, if not the world.
...a 'compelling read', especially for
those of us who love GOLF and are seeking to thwart its decline.
I recommend this book to all golfers,
and in particular to Tasmanian golf club committees.
COME FLY FISH WITH ME
Sharing a local affinity with the local Leven River, Graeme progressed through all the phases of fishing until , inevitably, he became hooked on fly fishing, he started to keep a diary which was the foundation for this book. Graeme shares in a straight-from-the -heart style both his joys and frustrations as a beginner fly fisherman. RRP $25.00. This book can be purchased by going to the Contact page and printing out the purchase form. Postage $2.70.
This book is written in a fluent and
easy-to-read style which dosen't get bogged down in jargon too technical
for the learner.
There is in this book a wealth of seeing
and doing that takes me back half a century.
This is a truly honest book, totally
without pretension. Newcomers to fly fishing will find it a comfort to
read that they are not alone through those first seasons of frequent failures,
and more important, that success awaits them if they persist.
Twenty-one stories and two poems fill this small book. Have you ever wondered: What it is like at Hell's aiport? or Why men fish? or Why Australians are Goldfish? or Why cats are purrfect partners? or How to apply for a job? or Why King Canute got wet feet?
Wonder no more. The answers, together with many more surprises and revelations can be found inside this book. RRP $10.00, however, if purchased by going to the Contact page and printing out the purchase form, the cost will be $7.00 (postage included to anywhere in Australia).
