    disc vending

    hey sausageguy here as most of you know(i hope),iam the vendor at pier.Yes i pay fees to health dept fire dept(cuz i used propane) and of course the parks dept.i would say protocal for tourneys, parks or whereever would be talk to the person in charge.You should expect to pay a vendor fee at tourneys.On the flip side if you are paying fees for tourneys the tournament should limit the number of vendors so the vendors have a crack at making there money back.thats my two cents anyway have a great day

            I don't usually eat soy anymore. What are your veggie dogs made of.

            If you slice your dogs thin, wouldn't those be discs? (There, back on topic.)

They are the ones responsible for the people being at that park at that time and should enjoy the fruits of their labor. If they wish to let others sell, then it should be on their terms (payment, product donation, etc).

              As for selling at parks when there is no event running, you should check with either the parks department or the local club. It could be something that is desired and could be mutually beneficial or it could be verboten. No matter what, just showing up at a park and selling without an okay, in my opinion, is not the way to do it. Chances are a lot of folks went to a bunch of trouble to get that course in, so don't step on toes. If it turns out you can sell by giving the host club a buck or two per disc, then hurrah!

              As always though, I will say that if you are not a licensed business and are not paying sales tax on your sales, then I am against it period. There are people out there with shops that are doing it by the book and should not be undersold by trunk-junkies that do not pay their fair share. Again, just another way that we can get the image of our sport to become more legitimate is to not be hawking merch out of every random person's car. How many other sports does this happen?

              So there's my input....from a TD, a course owner and installer and a pro shop owner....and a supporter of clubs and their needs to raise money.

              Later!

              I agree pretty much entirely with Papa here but just want to point out that there IS a shoe/apparel company that got their start selling sneakers out of the trunk of their cars. They'd probably think it is pretty cool to see disc golfers doing the same. I'm not saying I agree with it but just saying.

                Funny, that was the first thing I thought of, too. Where do you come up with these things?

                    These are good Papa points.
                    Something to remember though is most of the discs that were sold at courses in the old days were out of trunks.
                    That's sort of how a lot of it started.
                    I wonder how many ex trunk junkies have rehabilitated and now run their own "trunk free" pro shops?
                    Maybe we should call them "trunkies".
