I feel like I've taken over your question with a complaint session. Anybody else doing the Queen's Tea? I would love to hear about it! What does your club do?

That sounds like fun, but I do not believe that the club I go to does that kind of shindig. Like I said earlier though I am not there for that part of it. That said, I would doubt they would go all out like that as a few weeks back when they were having the special events for Women's Health Week they made a big deal about daily things happening and one day it was samples of the new protein shakes. The owner acted like it was a big joke and didn't even bother making them even though there were about 8 people working out while I was there. I just thought she missed out on a good time to make some extra sales. If they promote things I just think they should follow through.
I do agree about letting people know the winners of contests is part of the fun. I have been made to feel like I have sour grapes if I just ask, being told "Well, it wasn't you." Who thinks that way? They should call people if they won if they haven't been in to pick up prizes in a reasonable time. I hate seeing prizes sitting around gathering dust (and I have seen them there doing that).

The summer is the time of year most curves do contest. it helps to keep members motivated since it gets pretty slow during the summer with Aug being the slowest so Curves awards those faithful thru the summer months. I do think your club should mention each winner when she wins that's the fun of it : ) The nice thing is that you can play or not. It all good : )))

We go all out for the queens tea. It's an outdoor tea beautifully decorated. Ladies wear hats and gloves and we are served tea in real tea cups and saucers along with all kinds of finger sandwishes and small desserts. along with prizes. we also do bingo, one bingo and then two bingos. we also do a scavenger hunt that's the summer stuff and then the winner months Nov and Dec is the other time we do games.

My curves is doing it for the second year and once again I am not participating, though I do everything except sign up. I didn't sign up because once again it ends during my family's vacation time so I can't really participate fully. Most of the things the club does seems to do that.
How do you feel about contests and such being promoted at the clubs? Do you feel they are helpful to your motivation? I enjoy daily games and such but the longer things I find somewhat annoying.
One thing that does bug me about contests is what they do about winners. In my club the winner is only known until the winner comes in (if that...I'm not always sure that is the case because we have a monthly birthday drawing and this year I finally won. I asked several days into the month because I was curious and they had to check to see.) If the winner comes in first thing they get the prize and no one else finds out who won. The only way you find out is to be there when the winner is. If the winner doesn't come in you see the prize with their name on it and sometimes it will sit there for months because the person never comes back. How do they do things at other clubs?
