Hello members! Well after a 5 year rest from this place I am now in a position to be able to relax and take it a bit easier so I am making a return in a much more diluted form. I have had a couple of life changing experiences during my ‘break’ from this forum and am truly grateful to have survived. These have changed my outlook on life quite a bit.

I also took on some bowls administration positions for which I was vilified and pilloried by certain members of the bowls community. As a result I have withdrawn from all forms of bowls administration, I have also given up coaching as well as umpiring; it’s time for ME to enjoy my involvement in this game. I am still involved with Junior bowls at club level and will be for another few years. Kids tend to non-judgmental and accept things on face value. That is until they come under the influence of some of the ‘best’ bowlers at clubs.

So there you have it, a précis of the past 5 years. I look forward to my involvement with this forum once again.

:cheers:

Time flys Sinbad, 5 years really? welcome back. I reckon you'll find tis just like Days of our lives - a few different characters, same plot line. :lol:

Thanks Keith, and Lefty you are probably right. However, I have reached that age where navel gazing is the major preoccupation of my day. Might as well be entertained whilst I do.

After you left KM advised me that you had left purely because of me. That's why I asked you the question on Facebook and was happy to convey your answer.

No PJ my departure was not because of you, or any other contributor to the forum.

As a Moderator I expected to cop a bit of flack for some of my decisions. However, those decisions were always in the interests of all members and not because of my own ethical standards. In the end I perceived that I had contributed all I could to the forum, the owners were happy with the status quo and were not interested in tweaking it any further, and based on my health at the time I thought it opportune to withdraw.

It was gratifying to know that a number of the forumites have stuck with me throughout, via other mediums. They know who they are so there is no need to name them. I will be forever grateful for their moral support.

Believe what you want. It's ancient history, anyway, but just for the record, you are distorting the truth again, PJ.


Great to have you back Frank. Just ignore the bile. :cheers:
