I have received nothing of a response, so I guess people don't want to eat and talk disc golf?SERIOUSLY???
You give people a one week notice, and you're surprised that there's no response.
I know that it should have been announced earlier, but we couldn't secure dates and really didn't secure these dates until about a week ago. I wanted to wait until the note went out from Rick about the meeting before I posted anything in here.
The date should be predetermined, and it be up to the broad to ensure obligations for this "event" to occur. It should be considered as a duty of serving on the board. The board has few real obligations. You have to run leagues, club championships, and have a general meeting and elections once a year. That's it, every thing else is going above and beyond. With a club of 300 it should be a major focus to get every single one of them to the general meeting. It seems to me a lot of effort and focus goes into the Wide open every year, while energy and focus gets lost come time for a general membership meeting. The general membership meeting should be like the disc golf social event of the year.
As for the elections I certainly don't feel as though 40 people out of 300 is a good reflection for the majority of the clubs opinions. I am very serious about this issue and plan on attending the next broad meeting to address the issue.
