In this case the original obscurity posted in this thread was:
Will the SDGA pay up?
The SDGA promised that club members who signed up for the SDGA and choose to move their memberships to Disc Golf Uprising could do so before the vote. A number of golfers did so. The SDGA promised to make payment in March of this year. Several requests have been made. No answers have been received or checks and we are a tad past March.
Relax and enjoy your hair
The binding agreement as stated in the SDGA Initiative approved by the members under Article B was:
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.
The DGU supplied the SDGA with a list of 27 people that wanted their membership money back in order to support the 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 left 4 people eligible to have their SDGA membership dues transfered to the DGU which would amount to $80.
The transfer is not possible until the DGU abides by Article B Section 3. The SDGA would be missappropriating the members funds if they wrote a check to Jeff's wife, the parks foundation or any other entity other than the DGU organization specific bank account.
It's all pretty simple and clear if you look at it without bias and paranoia.
WRITE THE CHECK TO DGU!!! If there is no account than the check will be not be cashed at all. Write the check and watch your account with-in 3-5 (a day or two in the mail) days it will be deposited. I like how everyone is pretending that there is no DGU account. Non-profit status maybe only be applied for if that entity has a bank account. One or 2 people think that there is no account and everybody else buys the BS. Paranoia is someone (Jeff) who has been relentless building disc golf for the last 3 years is going to all of the sudden rip us off for $100.
