Monday: Rosedale (Ladies and New Players), Olathe, Cliff Drive = 4
Tuesday: Swope, SMP, (Old Pike) =3
Wednesday: Rosedale, PDGA Wandering = 2
Thursday: Water Works = 1
Friday: WyCo, (FTL) = 2
So why the changes? Because that's what the people who run them can do. Our members don't want to be told what to do, do they? I know I don't. I have always been in favor of bottom up engagement by members. The schedule we are working on now it a result of who can do what and when. For example, there was no one to run New Players at Rosedale, but Aaron could do it at PHill. Rob started PDGA league last year, but now can only do it on Monday. Other folks have volunteered to help out even if the location isn't super convenient for them i.e Van Spratford moved up north but will continue at Swope.
Nate, Pete, and I put our feelers out and found out who could do what. Rob contacted me about PDGA league and he can only do Monday. Do our members want that? If so, thank you Rob. And thank you to everyone involved Jack, Tom, Rhonda, Van, Mike T, Jay Rivard, Jason Pennington, Greg Utz, Harold, Mark Hogins, Aaron and anyone I missed. If the membership doesn't want it. Let it be known. So far, I see only a couple of detractors and I think it is mostly personal and, frankly, it just pisses me off.
Obviously, this has become a mountain out of a mole hill and now I suppose we will need a formalized process of setting up the league schedule. OH JOY! I think this kind of behavior is what pushes people away from the club.
If I read this thread as a non-member, I likely would not join. Just saying.
So do we need a process beginning in February to determine the schedule? Will that make everyone happy? I think not. The sense I get is that the "almighty Board of Directors" has made some arbitrary decisions. Well being the head of the board, that has not been the case, I have simply communicated what I know. Funny me.
I have tried to give members the opportunity to communicate and engage in planning. It's working. I guess.
I can't wait to play golf tonight.
