2010 Board of Directors Meets to Discuss Goals
February 10th was the first meeting of our Board of Directors. This meeting was crucial for setting the direction the Board of Directors will take the club. With the agenda set, board members sat down and finalized the goals for 2010.
The agenda for this meeting was as follows; this was the first opportunity for the sitting board members to meet and welcome the newest board members. We wanted to hear from each of the board members so that we begin to learn the strengths and weaknesses of our position. We now know and have a working plan to get the course opened up and back to providing a place for the local disc golf community to practice their craft.
