    Spellcheck

    All you guys who are throwing around Leroy's name would do us a service by knowing how to spell it. E-A-D-I-E

      Misspelling one's name

      Having a last name like Perrewe, I understand about misspelling and mispronunciation. I apologize to Mr. Eadie for this error. I was using the spelling that Jeff used. I was not throwing anyone's name around, my intent is a heartfelt THANK YOU.

        Point taken

        I guess you guys with the frenchy sounding names have learned to put up with it. But Eadie? That's Scottish! We don't roll that way.
        Can I get a member ship renewal while I'm there? Thiss'll be my 10th year running. Do I get one free now?

          Big Deal

          I got a call from Tom Schot this evening from somewhere in the Sierra Foothills of N. California. He is just finishing up a Disc Golf Course design there. He said he is already familiar with our courses and then heard about the opening of the site at Sekani. He told me that he would like to come to Spokane later this month and spend two or three weeks here to study the property and create for us a course design or two course designs or a 27 hole course design what ever we want.
          I told him I just wet my pants . I couldn't believe I was having this conversation with the Jack Nickalus of disc golf. He said he will give me another call over the weekend so I will have more concrete details for everyone in the next few days. This really is becoming a magical time in our Disc Golf story! Way to Go SDGA.

            Camp Sekani Thread

            I contacted the Webmaster at NWDGNews on Wednesday and requested a new thread to be posted under Disc Golf Courses/Washington: Eastern WA./Camp Sekani.

            I haven't heard back yet but I'm sure it's not far away.

              I hope that Kevin will bring some membership forms for 2012. I would like to sign up for next year as well.

              I'll bring a few forms myself.

                    Hmm...approaching from the East? Drive ~1500' past the Boulder Beach parking lot and take a right at Camp Sekani. There is a terraced parking area just inside the gate and to the left...can't miss it. The first tee of the "Jam" course is to the right of the kiosk on the upper level.

                        Sekani Benefit #1

                        18 people came out to play in the 1st Sekani Benefit. Jeremy handled the registration and the scorecards and turned in $190 to the Club.
                        There were two more donations from two guys who couldn't play; $10 more.
                        The INWS sales table turned in 20% of its sales from the day; $14 more
                        Altogether that's $214 raised and dedicated to the Sekani project in the first day! There will be a second Benefit in two weeks. Keep checking in for details. A big thanks to all who kicked down and had a great time in the process!
                        Gordy.

                              transition

                              The Sdga Board met tonight to discuss the transition of the Sekani project from the acquisition phase to the implementation phase. The measure before the Sdga to appoint a project manager to spearhead the project and their attendant
                              measure to subsequently designate a course designer was met with overwhelming support from the Board present.
                              The discussion was specifically about whether the Club contact to the Park's Dept. reservered the right to designate himself as Sekani course designer and designate the courses as finalized prior to these options being presented back to the Board. The Board concluded that the first step forward must come back to the Club first. We agree this decision underscores the Club's role in this process from it's very beginning. We further refer to the Club the services of Tom Schot, a nationally renowned disc course designer, to tackle the unique challenges of camp Sekani.
