Before then, however, Barry had become heavily involved in administration. Twilight cricket has been running on Tuesdays during summer in Te Puke since 1982 and Barry was involved from the outset. He organizes the teams, chases up fees, and runs the BBQ every Tuesday. If you add up the number of twilight BBQ's he has run over a 30 year period, a conservative estimate would be that he has cooked over 24,000 sausages and 9600 meat patties!
Barry has served on the Te Puke Cricket Club committee since 1982, 7 of those years as President. His contribution includes writing the Te Puke Cricket Club constitution. Barry was also the Te Puke delegate on the Bay of Plenty Cricket Board for 5 years.
Barry has also had a long involvement in Coaching. He got involved in junior cricket when his daughters started school, running what was then called the Milo Cricket Centre in Te Puke. Barry stayed involved with his daughter's cricket teams all the way through until they finished secondary school. During that time he filled various roles as coach, manager, scorer, umpire, transporter and general organiser.
Barry has also covered the cost of private coaching for a number of promising local cricketers who were not in a financial position to do so themselves and he has provided seasonal employment on his kiwifruit orchard for a significant number of Te Puke cricketers.
