The SDGA Board, having recieved no reports back from the Steward on this front,was the second party to be excused by the Steward to be privy to progress on this paramount issue. After an entire summer of waiting and pressing for information on this highest priority matter the Board and the Club were finally informed that the then SDGA Steward, another member of the Board and another Club Member had formed their own club and were negotiating on their own to install two new courses: one at Plantt's Ferry and the other at Gateway Park near Stateline. That two new courses were about to be installed in the valley is good news; that the then Steward, his Board member and another Club member 'spirited' away this Club's perogitives and derailed the Club's mission for 2009 is a grave missappropriation of the SDGA's good name. At this time it is crucial for this Club to again re-engage these Valley entities to determine if they understand that they are working with the SDGA or not. If so, there is a whole whale of opprotunity for us that exceeds even our current massive undertakings; if not, then we are still very fortunate to have the excellent sites to develope that are on the books now. Given that elected representitives of this Club have in the past used their association with the Club to forward their own specific interests at the expense of the Club's stated objective in no way inhibits this Club or the current Board from doing what's best for this Club in the right way and at the right time.

yes at the beginning of 2009 expanding toward the valley was one of our #1 objectives, however alot of your other information is incorect. and the accusation that " elected representitives of this Club have in the past used their association with the Club to forward their own specific interests at the expense of the Club's stated objective" is completely false. the clubs job is to promote and improve the sport of disc golf, if a club member or another board member helps another club in some way that does not hurt the sdga nor does it hurt disc golf, in my opinion the more the merrier.
