And how can you say you have no input on issues? I think if the entire membership voted, smokers would probably not like the outcome.
well first i never said we should vote on everything, somebody else already pointed out the fact that nothing would get accomplished that way.
and yes i tend to agree that if every member did vote on the smoking/nonsmoking issue that the smokers would probably get the short end, but the point is that EVERYBODY would be able to have their voice heard and the decision wouldnt be made by a few people. instead the decision would be made by thousands of people. the decision would be made by the PLAYERS/MEMBERS.
I am not talking about the World championships, just to be clear. that decision has been made. and as somebody already pointed out, that decision was ultimately made by the local parks regulation about no smoking in their parks. even if the pdga didnt ban smoking, it would still be banned at worlds because of the local parks laws.
I am talking about a possible future ban on smoking that would cover any pdga sanctioned event.
