Practice / Quiz               from Howard Jarrold

Thank you to those members to whom I have spoken about the content in my last blog.
It seems to have been well received and so I'll chance my arm and have another go.
Talking to a member the other day, I happened to say that practice makes perfect to which he replied that that was wrong in at least 90% of cases. More accurate is 'Practice makes permanent' which of course is true. Most of us have set up and delivery actions which would benefit from a bit of tweeking, and without having those tweeked a session on the rink will cement those issues and become permanent. Food for thought !
