EARL ASKS WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO???
Back in April 2018 I wrote an article titled “An article I really didn’t want to write”. The article was a follow up to an article I had written at some time previously titled “Tournament Players Needed” looking for ideas from our readers as concerns what we could do to increase participation in our tournaments. Maybe Stan will put in a link for those of you that might want to refer back.
The article I really didn’t want to write refers to the accelerated decline of participation in tournaments by our players and is a bit critical. Our FSA board tried to take a first step by adding tournaments so players wouldn’t have to travel so far but never had a chance to address any other changes. The main change mechanism is the “10-day notice” and the meeting that addresses the 10-day notice was the end of the season meeting in March and that meeting had to be canceled.
Our readers came up with a number of ideas and under the current situation maybe they can help come up with some ideas as to what changes we could make that will get us back on track for the coming season. No doubt we will lose more players who don’t want to take a chance of getting Covid-19; can’t blame them.
Do you have an idea or a comment as to what you think we should or could do? If Yes, please leave it in the Comments Section Below.
