How To Organise & Run A Successful Sporting Event

Playing sport is fundamental to the lives of millions. Organised events are easily one of the highlights for professionals and amateurs alike. In many cases, though, they wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of the organisers.

Like many others, I’ve benefitted from those efforts on many occasions during my badminton days. On behalf of anyone that’s ever competed in any activity, thank you for all that hard work. While it’s a very rewarding task, it is also one that carries a lot of stress and responsibility. Don’t think it goes unnoticed.

One of the most important factors is to ensure that facilities are always of the highest standard possible. After all, inadequate resources will limit the success of competitors. It could even put them off playing altogether.
Keeping those facilities in top shape is no easy feat. First and foremost, you must ensure that you are prepared for any accidents that can occur. After all, injuries are commonplace in the sporting environment. Medical equipment should always be available on site, as should a staff member with first aid training.

Ultimately, the safety of your players should be the number one priority. In addition to their healthy, you don’t want the guilt hanging over your shoulders. If you get these factors right, it sets a great foundation for a successful event.

Another key element is that you need play to take place. Unfortunately, you cannot predict the weather. But you can prepare for the worst with field drainage systems.   Let’s face it, those facilities will improve the playing venue for years to come.

However, it’s not only the players that need to be considered. The spectators need to be account for too. The weather isn’t a problem with indoor events like badminton. For outdoor activities, though, it’s important to arrange some sort of cover. Whether it’s rain or bright sun, marquees could be the perfect solution for keeping everyone protected.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
