Our next elections are scheduled for November 5, we will be looking for 4 people to run on the board in addition to the 5 remaining individuals. Individuals currently on the board, may opt to re-run in order to maintain some consistency with the Board of Directors (BoD), or can be 4 new people altogether.
I for one do not plan on running again for the BoD. I hope to continue to support local disc golf through a variety of efforts, including continual partnerships with Civic and community leaders to help infrastructure needs of Disc Golf locally. I also hope to help in events to attract guests to our fine stable of courses. I can't speak for anyone else on the board as to their decisions in the future, but mine at this time is heading to work on more designs of new courses and possibly at a more national level for the sport.
It is time for others to help our local community. I will never be far in my stance nor love for disc golf in Kansas City, and I hope to still be an integral part of disc golf locally, just not on the BoD. There are many fine people to help continue the disc golf legacy that Kansas City has built. I will help when asked, and sometimes when not asked, because that is of course my nature.
THe best thing that you can do as you read this is to get involved with the club and see the power that a group can do. Our community is blessed to have as many people in it that love our sport, this is why we continue to grow, and this is why we continue to need additional help from everyone here that we can.
Help us by helping yourself, be a part of the solution to help make Kansas City a great place, be a part of making our disc golf community the best in the world by helping spread the word of our sport, and donate some of your time to make it great!
