A Modern Day Parable...

And it came to pass that a three day Table Tennis Training Camp was held at Twickenham Brunswick with five of the six places taken. A place was offered free of charge to eight or nine of the more advanced junior players of the club .... but they all had other things to do... ansd so I a veteran of many years had to act as a sparring partner. But then on the final day a young maiden arrives, just 13 years old, who has paid for a place, travelled 100 miles to camp, an hour and a half in the car and then the same return journey ....  and I ask who among these will rise above mediocrity.  

What can you do?

A story about four people named Everybody Somebody, 
                      Anybody and Nobody

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure Somebody would do it.  
Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  Somebody got angry, because it was Everybody's job. 
Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized Everybody wouldn't do it.  
So Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.


"Obituary - Someone Else"


Our club was saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valued members, Someone Else. Someone's passing creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Else has been with us for many years and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than a normal person's share of the work.


Whenever there was a job to do, a class to teach, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone's list, "Let Someone Else do it."

Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results; "Someone Else can work with that group." It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the most liberal givers in our club. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed Someone Else would make upthe difference.


Someone Else was a wonderful person; sometimes appearing superhuman. Were the truth known, everybody expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone! We wonder what we are going to do.


Someone Else left a wonderful example to follow, but who is going to follow it? Who is going to do the things Someone Else did? When you are asked to help this year, remember - we can't depend onSomeone Else anymore.
