2012 SDGA MEMBER INITIATIVE #1
SDGA Motion to endorse the formation of the New Disc Golf Service Organization
Purpose - To recognize the need for an additional Disc Golf Service Club in this area.
Spirit - To provide the opportunity for further participation and involvement in the expansion of disc golf in the Greater Spokane area.
Objective – The Spokane Disc Golf Association (SDGA) is presently recognized by the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department (SPRD) as the management, design and installing organization for Disc Golf at Camp Sekani. The SDGA will, upon the establishment of the newly formed Disc Golf Uprising (DGU) and the SPRD’s recognition of the DGU, recognize this Club as the management, design and installing organization for Disc Golf at Camp Sekani.
With the support of SDGA Membership and the approval of the SDGA Board we call for the inclusion of the following articles in the body of the motion;
Article A. The DGU will undertake all responsibilities relating to the Disc Golf project at Camp Sekani and be subject to the Memorandum of Understanding now under development by the SPRD for that project.
Article B. The SDGA and the DGU will each remain separate and sovereign. To ensure that sovereignty;
1. No one may occupy a position of leadership, have signatory authority, hold a brevet position or serve on a committee for both these organizations.
2. Neither Club may bring legislation that affects the fiscal or operational activities of the other Club.
3. Once the DGU has an organization specific bank account the monies raised prior to this agreement for Camp Sekani, held by the SDGA, will be transferred to the DGU.
4. Any 2012 SDGA members who wish to get their membership fee returned in order to support the DGU may do so prior to exercising their SDGA voting rights.
Article C. The SDGA will support DGU by sponsoring four (4) baskets on the first course they install. Upon notification from DGU that basket installation will commence on a given date, the SDGA will issue a check not to exceed $450 to DGU for the cost of each of the four (4) sponsored baskets.
With the adoption of the motion above by the SDGA’s Membership and its approval by the SDGA Board and the joint adoption of Articles A, B and C above by the two Clubs and with the consent of the Spokane Parks and Recreation Department, the SDGA hereby transfers it’s interest in the SPRD Camp Sekani Disc Golf Project to the DGU.

The text above is a copy of the Member Initiative that gave control of Camp Sekani to Disc Golf Uprising. I will attach the document below so anyone can download it.
A list of 27 people that wanted their membership money back was supplied to the SDGA by DGU. 23 of these people voted in the 2012 SDGA elections and thereby voided their opportunity to receive their money back as explained in Article B Section 4. This leaves 4 people that may request their money back from the SDGA.
Jeff has asked that any checks we write be made out to his wife. This is not how payment by the SDGA is specified in the Member Initiative that passed. The SDGA will gladly make all checks due and payable to Disc Golf Uprising as an organization.
