    Mike
    All positions on the board are supposed to be for a term of one year but it hasnt worked out that way as we all know. I have not recieved any nominations for additional treasurers so Rays name will be the only one on the ballot at this time.

    Great question though!

      Bill Winkler
      Rob Dean

      Secretary:
      Briana Schumacher

      Maintenance:
      Jim Brassfield (JB)

      Promotions:
      Matt Schumacher
      Dan Lilley


      There is also a statement that read, “… you must be present to vote…”.

      I had a brief discussion with Mark Kilmer about the discrepancies between what is posted online and what is posted on the reader board. Mark said that as long as Rob Dean has a way for people to vote online, that voting online won’t be a problem.

      I am not exactly sure what the official nominations list is, but this list I just posted would be from the nominations that were taken at a meeting a few weeks ago. My guess is that people on both nominations lists are being nominated. Some repeats, some not.


      Mark stated some concern with nominations that may come from the online forum because of a lack of people to second anything.



      Mike Rideout
      Rest assured that I am not running for president at this time. I have not been nominated for this position. Also, any club member may nominate another club member as long as the e-mail nomination has another club members second on the nomination. I then will verify the nomination before adding it to the list of nominations.

                We need an official 2nd for the nomionation of Ryan DeRoche to the position of Vice President. According to Mark Kilmer and Rob Dean, Chris Waugh is not a current member of TDGPA. Therefore, unable to vote.

                    According to Rob Dean, somebody seconded the nomination of Ryan Deroche as Vice President. So its official.

                      The vote will continue on Feb 6th but it has changed a bit. I had long discussions today with Mark Kilmer and Rob Dean both before and after they had a meeting about the future of the club. I think they came up with an efficient agreement that will greatly benefit the TDGPA over the next year.

                      A lot of the guidelines and legal agreements the club has have expired and the club keeps running into kinks that hold us up from trying to progress out of this problem. So, Mark and Rob are going to keep their positions as president and vice president until October. Bill Winkler and Ryan DeRoche voluntarily withdrew their nominations for this cause. Their primary goal over the next several months is to work with the board members that are elected on Feb 6th to enact a new set of guidelines and achieve non-profit status for the club.

                      In August there should be an official announcement for nominations for the board positions of president and vice president. With elections to follow in October. There should be a fully instated set of guidelines and non-profit status for the club. The next president and vice president should be set up with a club built on a solid foundation.

                      Nominations for the remaining board positions will be accepted until Sunday, January 17th at 9pm. Nominations can be made either on this thread or by contacting Mark or Rob. Rob has set up an online vote with a company that should be emailing out the instructions of the procedure on Feb 1st. If you want to vote in person, that will still take place at the Fort Steilacoom disc golf course between 10 and 11 am. You must be a current club member to vote.

                      Board positions (with current nominees) still up for nominations until Jan 17th at 9pm and election on Feb 6th are:

                      Secretary...Briana Schumacher
                      Maintenance.....Jim Brassfield
                      Riverside Rep....Todd Bates


                      This should all be official.

                          Hey Chase

                          What did you hear?

                          From who?


                          I have been in direct contact with the powers that be and I would be very surprised if things changed.

                          If we don't make things clear now, things won't progress.

                            Mike is correct. Its complicated but Mike did a great job of trying to explain alot in a small amount of space. Give me a call Chase.

                              So are there really elections going on or was this just a rouse to get people to renew?

                                Information Update

                                Rest assured that our members renew their memberships because they they support both the aims and goals of the TDGPA and the promotion of the sport of disc golf as a whole in the Puget Sound region and not because we are having an election.

                                Really it comes as no surprise to our current members. Association members whos annual dues have been brought current are notified via e-mail of all major event issues that face the club. This year marks the final year of a five year plan to bring the club into the new millennium.

                                We have made leaps and bounds of progress and need only finish the work of bringing current the all paper works that make an association strong. For example, The TDGPAs current by-laws were drafted in time when the internet was in its infancy and computers could only be found in the office place. The redrafting and adoption of these,"new", bylaws will be a top priority of the 2010 Board of Directors.

                                When our Bylaws were written there were not that many golfers to take advantage of our beautiful course. Thats 30 years ago! Much has changed since then but those pesky old bylaws are still here so they have got to be updated. It is the wording of the bylaws regarding elections that has proven to be an issue.

                                After the election, a general meeting of the association will be held to discuss the 2010 goals. This meeting will be an informational session to bring our members up to speed on all the changes that are coming including the huge club vote on the adoption of the new bylaws. There will be more info posted on this site as well as our own website. We are currently upgrading the way we communicate with our members too! This means our website also. We are dedicated to to improving the way we communicate with our members!

                                Finally, it is anticipated that the 2011 elections (to be held in October 2010) will offer to the newly elected directors a stable platform to conduct business on. Its been a challenge to complete the goals that were set five years ago but I remain hopeful and vigilant that they will all be completed on time.

                                I will begin updating this thread with news as it becomes available. The newsletters located at the club website offer a wealth of information on the happenings of the association.
