    I signed up for the PDGA this morning. I thought the $50.00 was a little steep to join, but I think it is real important to support the sport and support PDGA. I just hope the people are friendly towards a Newbie to the sport. Happy Flying

      I renewed last night and they sent me an e-mail today saying my packet had been shipped. I waited a long time for my first one in '06, and like almost THREE MONTHS for my first Revo bag before that. Don't get too frustrated, it's worth the wait (especially if you get TWO) . Also remember they're still the sports only governing body so this stuff will happen.

        If we all went by the "naysayers" posts on the internet.
        NOTHING would ever get done....ANYWHERE...not just in Disc Golf..

          I finally received an email from the "membership" staff who advised me that there is no membership staff or department...thus the reason for the delay in getting any of my stuff to me for the past year. She did say that they were going to forward me all of the publications that I never received last year. I must say that it was nice to get some sort of response in the end.

                every time I call PDGA headquarters, they answer the phone fast, and reply to all my questions and concerns immediately over the phone, anddd I'm doing it through relay. Imagine how much faster it is for you guys since no relay. Email is good, but PDGA headquarters is much better with answering the phone and helping you out. I waited about 2 months for my first ever PDGA new member package and its pretty nice to have.
                As far as fees goes, I think it's pretty cheap considering there's a full active staff helping run the PDGA on so llittle membership. Last time I looked there were only 4 thousand active members. For the PDGA to be more efficient and for the sport to grow mainstream recogniztion, cheapaxes need to start joining up and paying the fees etc. Disc Golf may be the fastest growing sport in the world but until we all start contributing to PDGA and to the courses finacially, we will be stuck in the mud trying to get the mainstream attention that we all so desire.
                Just as a note; DDGA has an executive board running the website everyday and is the governing body for Deaf tournaments and all the extra stuff etc. Membership fees are $20 for new, $10 for renew and all the work done for DDGA is volunteer. Sadly a big factor in the inability to grow more is the fact that a majority of Disc Golfers in the general population want to have the sport as cheap as possible.

                    Wow good for you I am still waiting for mine from Nov. 20th At this point whatever I don't really care anymore. I am tierd of emailing them, and getting some BS about your packet had a re-ship this or, it was shipped on the old rates that. Anyway I guess it get here when it gets here.

                      I got my renewal packet yesterday, really surprised the hell out of me, I gotta say. I renewed a couple weeks ago, and got the email saying I'd get it in 1-3 weeks or whatever. I was expecting more like 2-3 months (that's what they've been in the past), but I was pleasantly surprised this time around. I know that before it was some external mailing service that was taking so long, so the PDGA wasn't to blame directly, but still, it really shouldn't take that long to put something in the mail. In a day and age when most stuff you order gets shipped in the same day, even a 2 week delay is still kind of a long time. I'm glad to see that they're improving on some counts...still got some work to do though.

                        We renewed in December and it took roughly 10 days to get our packets.

                          Is there anyone else that would like to post how quickly they got their packets? I'm sure Cindy appreciates it!

                            I don't mind gives me more ammo when I email them, which I just got through doing for again for about the 10th time It was not a nice little note either. I mean really how hard can it be to drop my new member packet in the mail. I mean were coming up on three months now.

                            Don't get me wrong I have loved all the PDGA events I have taken part in. I also love the idea of being able to track my progress, and getting my first rating was way cool. However this whole hassle with the new member packet is taking away from all the good stuff.

                            Well there is always next week, or next month, or at this rate next year.

                              The good news in all of this is that from all the replies here it appears Cindy's is an isolated event and not the norm. You'll get it Cindy, be patient Grasshopper.

                                I got my packet acouple of days ago and in it was a Stratus. I thought cool I will try it out at the course. My first throw went long and into the brush.
                                It was really hard to find because it is black. I will never buy a black or a green disc because they are so hard to find. It can be laying right in front on me and I will not see it.
