While at the cocktail function to bid farewell to Glasgow 2014 Queen’s Baton Relay in South Africa at Olympic House on Thursday, 13 February 2014 it was heart-warming to see many of the 'regulars' in sports administration.. But isn't that also the problem? But is it because the administrator is trying to hold as many positions as possible, or, is it because there are just not enough people today who are prepared to forgo the cash rewards and volunteer both their time and money to a sport and to the development of the athletes? Yet there are many others, many of whom will go silently into the night!It is through the club structure that South Africans can influence what happens at every level in sport. It is, in other ways, the only way in which South Africans can vote in sport.But more than that, participation through clubs, in the sport of your choice, can be most rewarding. The look at the faces of those selected to represent South Africa is almost pay-back enough. So, if you want to make a difference, take a chance, join a sports club, and get involved!
