Jeff and Jeremy are hard at it to get a lot of details relating to their new Club concept and their plans to get a course in the ground worked out in a surprisingly short time. I think they understand the importance of having a reasonable presentation for the Club at tomorrow night's meeting so that we have a fair idea of what and who we are approving.
The SDGA is also prepared to move ahead on this project and will if that's how it goes. Personally I think this is a unique and rare opportunity to let something we've spoken of for years finally happen.
The first element of the SDGA's commitment to foster the development of Jeff and Jeremy's project at Camp Sekani took place on the day the SDGA Membership passed the initiative. The money raised at the various fundraisers for Sekani was turned over to the DGU from the SDGA account.
Now the second leg of support will be carried out. The eligible SDGA members who elected to have their 2012 SDGA Membership dues returned in order to support the new Disc Golf Service Organization will begin receiving their refunds as soon as this coming weekend. The DGU will be supplied with a list of these individuals so that they may work with them directly to receive their support.
So what was originally agreed was too simple that the SDGA would pass on the membership fee's to the new club... This more complicated angle is an interesting way to make it harder to figure out if people who intended to have their memberships forwarded to the new club. Instead of one check being written for say $220 so the new club knows that 9 people got refunded, the SDGA treasurer has chosen to come up with his own method of disguising payments due to Disc Golf Uprising. Thanks a ton from a small group of people who already have a bunch out their plate. I'm sure that your amended decision to pay DGU has been done through a unanimous club vote as the original agreement was voted on... Simple obstinance at it's finest!
