I am always nice to Kirsty....what do you mean. :wink:jameshowell said:This wouldnt be why you were being so nice to Kirsty all of a sudden on MSN would it? she thought it was a little fishy! Lol!
Seriously though, it sounds like good advice from Moy, I'm sure there are very few players who would begrudge helping a junior band woth their experience. It's a good feeling knowing you have helped a player progress.
In my experience just not good enough. Its great that they're comitted and regular players, but sometimes you can't help but feel that they're holding the band back ...Majoresteve said:well if they have done something that is against the rules of the band, then get the committee yto directly ask that player to leave.
but if its jsut because they are too old (not that you can be) then there is no easy way, try suggesting "retirement" as a joke and findign out how they feel about it.
but why do you want them to retire? are they a strain to the social side of the band (if you get what i mean) or just not good enough?
I'm afraid there is no easy way to deal with this one. Having pensioned a few off this year i know that nobody takes it well. Sometimes grim things have to be done for progress and the bullet has to be bit.Spanky Rear said:I imagine that many Bands have had face up to this thorny problem.Is there'a best way' to handle it?
I remember hearing that a band I know once wanted to "retire" a player so they held a big meal in his honour to thank him for his time with the band and made a speech at the event that he would be stepping down, presenting him with an engraved pocketwatch. That`s the way to do it I think!flugelgal said:How about having a collection to buy them a carriage clock or something similar... :roll:
