Seems the production and PDGA have a lot in common....
Next year I'll trade - the PDGA can keep the marginal magazine and let me see the one event of the year I'd like to.
After 10+ years as a member I'm beginning to wonder if the BSF is the ONLY reason to join each year. It is the only one I could come up with.
Sure, charge non-members to see Worlds, but PDGA membership should have SOME worthwhile benefit for ALL members.
I'm more confused then ever about what the PDGA is TRULY doing for its membership.
(Annoyed, but happy to listen to reason.)
I have the same thought...often about my own membership in my association. There seems to be no benefits except it provides money for the courses (as far as the local organizations) but that hardly seems enough when plenty of people play without paying. I feel like a sucker at time with both my group and the PDGA. I echo your concern.
