Our motto: EVERY BLOKE IS A CHAMPION
Why do we have ShedNight
So much of the world tells men we need to be more, have more, do more, which often results in men living shallow lives of acquisition and pretense, without the support of their peers.
ShedNight allows the blokes to be real, honest and open about where we are in our life journey. And by doing that we get support and and encouragement from other bloke’s, some of whom may have been where you now!
We are a bunch of ordinary blokes who have a great night with friends, and we love meeting new blokes. So come along and get real.
What do we do during ShedNight
We start with a big feed, and we spend some time catching up with each other. Later three volunteers are interviewed about how things are going for them. They get asked questions like:
- How do you deal with stress from work?
- What are you learning about being a dad/granddad?
- What do you do for fun?
- Do you feel proud of yourself?
- How are you going in your marriage/relationships?
- What are some battles that you fought and won lately?
- Do you have a faith or something else that gets you through tough times?
- What do you look for in a mate?
So blokes answer real questions and give us real answers. We end up learning a heap from each others’ stories. There’s no judgement and no telling each other what to do. There is just great blokes enjoying each others company and having a great time and doing life together.
And it’s not always struggles that are shared. If blokes are passionate about a hobby or have a new car/boat/motorcycle/push bike, etc. they speak about it also.
