    dude, not to be all punctuation police, but come on, in that whole block of text, the only punctuation is 2 apostrophes! even Jub's posts are easier to read than that!

          Terry,
          I agree with your point here.
          BUT............. What IF ...
          there were gigs where the "Nons" had first crack at entering a non pdga gig and pdga members had to wait?

          May I suggest that the moderators move this particular post to the pdga forum.

            Not a valid point........
            The arguement has gone on forever on this subject........
            There are MANY non-sanctioned events where "entries" is by "Invitation Only"

            MOST organizations WILL NOT allow "non-members" to even participate, let alone take the spot of a "dues paying" member.

            I am NOT necessarily for a "blanket" members only policy.
            BUT if DiscGolfers want to play in a competitive eviron, such as PDGA events, shouldnt they be members? Is that so wrong?

                Ah I miss those days when I could get both of those for 50-60!!! Carton of Camels here is $58. 12 pack of decent microbrew is about $20...

                  You got me there...BUT that further proves my theory...

                  You can sign up as a PRO for the price of a Carton of Cigs and a Case of Beer...

                  Signing up as a AM is BY FAR cheaper...than Beer & Sigs

                    Well... Only if you live in Juneau and only for a carton and a half rack!!! I hate to think of how many years of membership I could have when paying $6.50 per pack per day!! Ok, I will quit thread jacking now!

                        How is limiting the number of players that can play in any way "accommodating"..?

                        Our state has reached a point where seperation is needed.........BUT there are certain sacrifices that would need to take place for this too happen.
                        1st and foremost is that the TD's..NOT the Oregon Series...have to be willing to throw 2 events instead of one.
                        I "kicked" a similar proposal around and was asked to "submit" a proposal to the "Series" that outlined my "thoughts"...
                        What exactly makes you roll your eyes at the idea of putting your idea in some written form for others to consider? Seems pretty reasonable and standard practice to me when you are pitching an idea. Or is the brilliance of the idea just supposed to cause the envisioned reality to take flight as a golden bird of glory as it leaves your mouth?

                          That... ...that was beautiful.

                            IMO the ORS staff is/was not quite ready to take this huge transitional step.
                            I really don't blame them as a change this big could be scary.
                            So, still IMO I don't think it would've done any good for Mike to write up a proposal, as I feel they weren't ready.
                            Actually, IMO I don't see where a proposal would be necessary.
                            I think that most of the ORS staff folks if not all, know what's going on with DG growth and splitting weekends with pros and ams.
                            I'll say it again Caloch, I'm not bashing your beloved ORS.
                            Just trying to deal with the fast growth of this sport as some others are.

                              Anyone that plays in a PDGA event will become a PDGA member.


                              Addition of PDGA Supporting Level Membership. Non-members who pay the $10 fee at a PDGA
                              event will receive a PDGA number, PDGA mini and a rulebook. This level of membership does
                              not include the calculation of points or assignment of a player rating.

                              Also, as stated by Magilla, we have been considering splitting up the series into pro and am weekends. The problem is finding the TD's and volunteers to run the events and keeping the events up to the standards of the Oregon Series. The current core group of Oregon Series volunteers have neither the time nor the inclination to run another 6 or 7 events each year. There is also the problem of raising more sponsorship from the local communities. Hitting up the same businesses for additional cash for additional events may be problematic, especially in this economic environment.

                              The time will come and change will happen, but until a lot more people are willing to step up and volunteer on a regular basis it will not change soon. If you would like to help Oregon disc golf grow, please contact any of the dedicated volunteers below to see what you can do to help out.

                                I have made several attempts to contact parties involved about the Oregon series. DiscGolfOregon.com is willing to help with anything that you need. I have told you this in person as well.

                                All of my email attempts have hit dead ends, and all i can do is keep offering.
