Lets work on 2k12...why stop at this year, and next? 8)

Planning on staying around awhile I see....good to know.......

ON a related note, put my house up on the market after hearing this news! ;D

Just hit an ace then, it comes with the ace fund (minus the $20 deduction!)  SO make it count, take home more money......

Beckett has not lived here for what 3 years now....I think that his dues are finally up this year from all the stupid aces that he hit.......got like 5 in one year, I don't think that he paid for dues the entire decade last time....so watch it when he comes to play on a visit, he'll probably hit another one.......

no cabinet position, sorry, but I agree whole heartedly about this as an item that MUST be explored more.

I remember in High School taking Golf in PE, and they didn't even take us to the golf course......I think now that had they just taken us to the disc golf course and explained rules and etiquette, that they would have gotten the same points across.  But hey I was young then,a nd didn't understand what little I try to understand today!

Rest assured it is a hot point and topic in today's environment, and I agree that this is something that is played by people of all ages, and all sizes, and should be a fabric for schools to use to promote cingular activity that can be played at all levels within reach (think academic decathalon) for each to deveop and grow as they play!

"The Discatcher comment is a tad subjective and open for debate I think."

VERY much open for debate.  The best baskets made to date are not on any of our courses in Kansas City.....the TITAN is probably the best catching basket out in the market today.  To bad its a Gateway product, or it would be used more.  I bet as more people play on them though, the more that they will become frequent on courses.

I went to bed very late, and Drew was upset that he did not have the results up last night.

I know that we had 18 open, and 8 masters, and only Ash asked about Adv playing.....

It was a good time, then Deano and Andy showed up to watch a little Alacartoona (quite the show to say the least......think old school burlesque, and a production theme with an accordian player...)
 to rub in our face that they can play Olathe and go out near Cliff Drive....

Those guys are ANIMALS!

I don't care about how much I pay to be a member.  I care about what his vision is going forward with the organization.

Its hard to say until I get in there and konw what I am dealing with from the other board members.  I would only be one vote in a group, so I would have to see what happens. 

Initially, I really would like to see a much more defined plan to help the outreach to the media of the 50 largest metropolitan markets to help launch events.  I want to capitalize on the issues that I thought the PDGA should have done with worlds and help to bring that closer to every disc golf community.

I'd like to see a better realistic approach to NT events and above, and I think that starting with getting contact information for all the media outlets, and knowing who they are within each city is a start in the right direction.

Beyond that, lowering dues is not something that I am a big proponent of. (I think that our club dues are too little, and feel that the PDGA dues are definately within a proper range for our sport).

I know that I will want to explore options to help foster our game to the educational piece, trying to put us in a position to help with childhood obesity, and write grants along those lines.

I'd like to understand better the infrastructure of how the organization works in order to determine what may help it work better for all of us.

In general I think that being a person with a wide array of knowledge on the sport from fund raising, tournament planning, grant writing, organizational development, that I bring in a new set of eyes to hopefully help us push our sport to new challenges.

Allows Timko to post ratings if he were to play......

It's tough to leave work early every week day to play league (but I'll be doing it today :D).

I meant that if HE WAS A MEMBER, then they coulda had 3 to make you able to DO the ratings!

I know how much work goes into the stats Chris, why I haven't kept up on it, its tough, but as long as the people post in here within a day or so trhe scores, its easy to slam that extra 20 minutes to enter it.  It just gets harder and harder when you start looking for names at the end of the season, and you have like 150 people at each league......
