Too many options

Today marked the end of yet another working year and for another year running we spent the afternoon at the South Oakleigh Bowling Club for lawn bowls and a barbecue. It was interesting to note that only a handful of people actually played bowls, the remainder did other activities.

So what were the other options?

  • Wii Sports on Ben’s Nintento Wii
  • Arcade games on Andrew’s MAME setup with his X-Arcade controller
  • Chess, which included the final of a tournament that started a week ago
  • Talking, etc

One contributing factor against the lawn bowls was that it was the only activity that was outside in the 35°C heat instead of inside with air-conditioning.

The point I am trying to make is that when there are multiple options people will take them which is not necessarily compatible with doing things as a group.
