Tim hasn't voted against them even when he said that it made sense to.
My biggest issue in this whole thing is centered around Camp Sekani. Starting by building an upper course is as short sighted as a mistake as one could make.
1. There isn't a single property within 200 miles that is more difficult to walk on and play on.
2. Building a full upper course before we figure out whether or not we get 40 more acres means that we would build a course that would not use 40 acres that could make it out of this world. In other words all the work to build a course could be put in and than we could find out that we only used 1/3 of the land we had.
3. The lower course is playable by 90% of the disc golf population.
4. The lower course could be ready to be built immediately once the MOU and the Park gives it's final approval.
I also am of the opinion that the club shouldn't have $10,000+ in the bank account. Golfers have been waiting to have new courses for a while. Our courses are full and our parking lots are too.
With a club vote tonight and a park approval this whole thing could be irrelevant. There is nothing guaranteed about a new club being formed yet but it is a good possibility. I can guarantee that I will work to make sure that disc golf growth is the best that it could possibly be for the golfers in our area no matter what club I am working for. I want the best teepads, equipment and courses we can get. I look forward to helping make this possible with your support.
Interesting that Jeremy knows how I have voted on measures or elections in the past...fuzzy math and shaky facts. Simply because I consider Gordy and Bob my good friends does not mean that we agree and vote alike. That does not make any sense to me. Probably doesn't match their perceptions either.
I look forward to playing and working with Jeremy, Jeff and/or all other individuals and entities, in any capacity, to make disc golf more accessible to all! Tim
