My choice has been made and forwarded to the PDGA and USDGC Director.
The 2010 USDGC Rep. for Oregon is.......
There were MANY highly qualified individuals who requested this spot and it was not an easy decision to make.
I feel that Jeff will make an AWESOME Rep. and this experience will help him with his future as a TD and promoter.
Very sorry to those who didnt make it this year. You can hate me now.
Thank you all for the kind words and thank you to Magilla for both considering me and for selecting me as our state representative this year. I am both honored and extremely excited to be awarded this opportunity.
Here is the exact letter I wrote to Magilla for all to see...

I think I would be an excellent representative for the state of Oregon for a number of reasons.
As a frequent tournament player, I always try to keep a good attitude even when I might not be playing my best. I always try to treat my fellow players with respect and be a positive addition to any group of players. On occasion, I can even put together a half-way decent round.
As a member of the disc golf community, I am on the board of directors for Stumptown Disc Golf, arguably the largest disc golf club in the northwest. I run my own sanctioned events, I have mentored first time TDs and I also volunteered to help them run their own events. I frequently attend work parties, and have played a role in the installation of several courses in our area.
While I am probably not going to be the guy fighting it out for the win at the USDGC, I am certain I would represent Oregon with class.
