    SDGA Elections

    This year the SDGA is offering a mail-in ballot to those disc golfers that sign up for or renew their membership prior to Jan. 1, 2011.

    Here are the election procedures for 2011.


    2011 Election Procedure


    There will be three positions up for election this year. The positions are the Treasurer, the Public Relations position and the Membership Whip. The election will take place at Stadium Pizza on Tuesday, January 18, 2011. The election meeting will start at 7:00 pm.

    Individuals that have signed up or renewed their membership after December 31, 2010 will receive their ballot for the election at the election meeting on January 18, 2011.

    Individuals that have signed up or renewed their membership prior to January 1, 2011 will receive their ballot in the mail. You will also receive two envelopes with your ballot for voting by mail if you choose to do so. One envelope will be blank on both sides; this is the envelope that you will seal your ballot in. The other envelope will be addressed to our Facilities Coordinator Jon Verbarg. Place the blank envelope with your ballot in it into the addressed envelope and seal it up. Be sure to sign and date the back of the addressed envelope. Your vote will not be counted if you have not signed the outer envelope. If you plan on attending the election you may bring your ballot and envelopes and vote at the meeting. You must still sign the back of the addressed envelope for your vote to be counted. Members that have received their ballots by mail will not be given another ballot at the election meeting for any reason.

    If you wish to sign up for mail-in balloting please contact Kevin Sakus at (509) 216-4929 or Bob Perrewe at (509) 991-1807.

    • Early renewal ballots will be mailed out on Tuesday, January 4, 2011.
    • Mail in ballots must be post marked by Friday, January 14, 2011.
    • The mail in ballots will be kept separate from those ballots cast at the meeting.
    • In the case where three or more candidates are running and no one gets a simple majority, the two candidates with the most votes will have a run off. The write in votes will be counted and those present will re-ballot.
    • If there is a tie vote, the write in ballots will be counted and those present will re-ballot until someone receives a majority.
    • If a re-ballot is required the Presiding Officer shall cast his vote only after the results of the re-ballot are known and if he desires that his vote should affect the outcome.


    I've attached the 2011 election procedure below for those that want to print a copy.

    cold= flurry to get things done

    Jeff is the reason that the SDGA may get Sakani and People's.
    Actually Stimpi was first approached back in 2004 about Sakani.

I also have ALL of the paperwork already filled out for 501c3 status. It is done correctly because I got it from a club that got approved. I have the lawyer and tax accountant's willing to donate their time for the club. There was something else too but I cannot remember, don't matter anyway.

    Yoduh, It seems you have everything you need to start your own club. If you count the brand 6 new members you brought to the last meeting and the 13 others who voted for you your well on your way.

    Go on! You know you want to rub the clubs nose in it what better way then to strike out on your own you and the rest of the Donner party or Adolphus Greeley Expedition

    Jeff is the reason that the SDGA may get Sakani and People's. He is also responsible for following through on my request to ask the city if we could put sponsors on the tee sign's. He also got the art work for the professional tee sign's donated. He has done alot for the club and it seems like alot to piss off the board. Maybe they don't like being shown up (Not like it matters). I just want to see stuff get done.

    While the board is certainly dysfunctional and I doubt any board member would disagree, I disagree that we can't get anything done.

    There have been a lot of positive changes in the last year to Downriver, Highbridge, and the fledgling People's Park. The funny thing is, however, that most of those positive changes have been spearheaded by the guy that everyone on this board loves to hate, Jeff Crum. And then the rest of the board (excepting me, probably) have done a great job on following up on Jeff's ideas and getting stuff implemented on the courses via work parties and elbow grease.

    We are stagnant at People's Park and Camp Sekani right now due to bureaucratic BS, but our other two courses are flourishing.

    Our club obviously needs a change and the charter review can resolve many of your issues.
    Complaining about the past will only net us naysayers and critics.

    Get involved and show the difference rather than preaching it.
    Get involved in the actions and make the change you keep talking about.
    Get involved, otherwise you are leaving us when we could use you most.
    I have always been involved, just not on the surface.. I will keep helping to grow the sport. I don't need to be in the SDGA to do that. You carry the torch. I wish you and the organization many disc golf victories.

    Jeremy, the majority of your speech was about our club becoming a non-profit.
    How do you plan on this vision when we can't agree on anything?
    Downriver layout? replacing a board member? running of an election?
    Hell, we can't agree on a quantitative distance measurement!
    Do you really expect this group to be a functioning non-profit?

    In the last 3 months, you have been to one meeting and complained about at least three.
    Get involved, do the leg work yourself, and see the results.
    I know you can do this and the club will be a better place for it.
    Sadly, I don't think you aret gonna be satisfied with the club unless you work to be part of the change.
    I think if we would have spoken before the vote we would have had a completely different vote. So just because this disfunctional board can't get anything done, how do you predict what our dynamic would the same, with a completely different board? I have only been to 1 meeting because in the winter I don't have Tuesdays free but I've got about 10 years in this club, and trust me I fully understand the blocking forces in the club. I've done alot of leg work and it usually nets nothing. You will learn more as you've been around. I do not plan on investing any more energy into this club. Not for a couple years.
    I will be focusing on the Valley and on the Idaho state park system. Have a couple other courses that may surface soon here in Washington.

    Jeremy Go ahead and post your presentation. It would be interesting to know what you see/hope is the future of the SDGA.

    Side note Treasurer is not the most glamorous of board positions far from it. Depending on what/if Jeremy posts he may have been better served running for a different position.

    Again the hardest thing any board member needs to cope with is only doing the job they were elected too.

    It doesn't seem that there will be an adequate revision here so I guess it might as well be dropped.. Time for the powers that be to back on track, to move in the right direction, to pull from the vast number of club members that they haven't burned.. Good thing this sport is growing eh guys?

    I agree with the Diva here. You have a lot of energy, and you certainly put in effort, that is commendable. Thanks.

    That's a pretty good point, but I think it would need to be in the charter to hold any water.

    Jeremy, we were given an opportunity to do so.
    Bob, Gordy, and I gave speeches in December, same day I accepted my nomination.
    You and Kevin were not present at this meeting.
    It was not a well attended event, sadly not everyone watches the debates.
    I had to work, furthermore what is the point of showing up to a "debate that there is nobody there to listen? That is a great way to make sure that voters decide who they want based on who's most popular not who has the best ideas and motivation to help lead the club. Who realizes that there aren't any emails going out to club members, and tells there friends, and their disc golfing friends, but doesn't let anyone else know? Even more importantly, A debate is held before all nominations can be accepted?? I accepted my nomination after the date of the "debate" Sp I don't get to speak???? This explanation holds no water. I appreciate your efforts to smooth it over and to show that the SDGA covered its bases, but it's not possible, because it didn't happen. I wrote on Facebook that we had an election where everybody voted, and after we all gave speeches. I had 60+ replies from golfers from all over the country and not one of them could even understand how it was possible, NOBODY HAD EVER EVEN HEARD OF IT! Golly gee, did we forget to have the speeches until after they voted.. better put it in the CHARTER!!

    I ask a lot of good questions and nobody seems able or willing to answer them. The overall tone so far indicates defensiveness and skirting the issue. If you'd like to tell yourself it's my fault you are free to do so. If you'd like to tell your friends that I'm not stopping you. You cannot convince me otherwise on this forum nor in person. It's too obvious. ("I guess it needs to be in the charter" What a joke!) This new tactic is really primitive, I guess it needs to be in the charter.. How bout the next time you pull a scam and try saying it needs to be in the charter you need to be excused from the club?
    The problem with adding this crap to the charter is that it's such a cock-eyed thing to pull in the first place, everybody would know full and well you did it on purpose if you tried it again.
    It doesn't seem that there will be an adequate revision here so I guess it might as well be dropped.. Time for the powers that be to back on track, to move in the right direction, to pull from the vast number of club members that they haven't burned.. Good thing this sport is growing eh guys?
