The really important question is whether or not there will be any voting going on at this meeting. Club members can get together and hash it out with an hours notice for all I care, but we need more notice and more methods of notification before any vote should happen. The direction we take at Camp Sekani will have lasting and significant impacts on the Spokane disc golf community and we shouldn't cut any corners in the process.
We need to find a way to contact all members of the club and give them the time to plan around the meeting. I hate to say it, but posting something on this forum simply isn't enough. Many members don't even get on this site and those that do don't always do it regularly enough to catch a meeting on such short notice. If there is any way I can help in this matter, just let me know. I don't mind calling or emailing anyone (or everyone for that matter) in the SDGA in an effort to get the word out.
As far as the course goes-
I wholeheartedly agree that no one should be cutting a damn thing until the whole club (not just the board) has a chance to vote on our direction at Sekani. I also agree that neither Jeff or Jeremy have any real authority to be making final decisions about the course design at Sekani.
we shouldn't overlook the qualifications that they bring to the table. Jeff may have ruffled some feathers and possibly exceeded his authority over the last year, but the results that he has produced have been impressive and really encouraging. And yes, I know that he is not the only person putting in work around Spokane.
Despite whatever misgivings anyone may have, Jeremy is a fantastic course designer. DBD at Farragut is quite simply one of the most technically complete and balanced courses that I have ever played. I may not be as well traveled as some, but I've played over thirty courses in the NW and it sits comfortably in the top three alongside Milo and Hornings Gold.
I also want to remind the board to practice what they preach. There have been many examples of the board ignoring, degrading, or countermanding the wishes of the club as a whole. The midterm appointment of a board member without popular vote and the handling of the Downriver redesign are the first few that come to mind. When people voice complaints, they are rarely addressed and are often scorned or marginalized.
All I am asking is that everyone keep an open mind and don't let your personal issues get in the way of what could be one of the pivotal moments for disc golf in the Spokane area. We have the opportunity to effectively double the number of public courses in Spokane and have an incredible property to work with, lets make the best of it.
