Hello, I was asked to post the following for Josh Jones, his computer is being worked on and couldn't post. See below, vote for Josh Jones = )
Good morning all,
After seeing the state coordinator ballots go out, I realized I completely forgot about discussing sanctioned tournament scheduling and sending out the document I wrote explaining how I will handle scheduling if re-elected. Unfortunately, my personal computer kicked the bucket a few weeks ago, and I am waiting for the hard drive to be recovered if possible. I haven't had a chance to retype it up, so here is the general idea:
In the past, I've tried to work with the ADGA when it was the previous leadership to work together on the schedule. This did not happen as fairly as it could/should have, since their schedule was already set by themselves. So I went on a first come first serve basis, which is not ideal. To make the scheduling more democratic, I would have each region give a tentative schedule to the State Coordinator by the end of October each year. The SC would then come up with a statewide schedule based on the regional proposed schedules by the end of November. At this point, the leaders of each club/region can discuss changes to the schedule that need to be made with the SC and other clubs/TDs. The final schedule will be completed by mid-January
The clubs/regions are as follows:
Anchorage (including hilltop, PC, girdwood)
I'm not sure how to deal with PC and Girdwood, any suggestions are welcome. Of course, if any TD wants to run a event at any course, they will need to work with the local club for initial scheduling. Financing events will be on the TD/club organizing the event, although other clubs are encouraged to help as well.
A couple of things that the SC should keep in mind, from my perspective, are:
1. Recognition that Anchorage has the highest number of competitive golfers and is essentially centrally located. Therefore Anchorage should have the most sanctioned tournaments, assuming there are TDs willing to run events there.
2. Events on holiday weekends should be distributed among the regions, not all in one area every holiday weekend.
3. Either the Alaska Championships move yearly, and prospective TDs bid for it when the regional schedule is submitted -or- the USDGC bid changes events/regions yearly. I think every one wants a chance to win the Biggest title on their home course, but this topic can be discussed among all the clubs' leaders.
I am proposing this system for a couple of reasons. It seems the past the schedule was decided on by only a few people, and made to benefit only a few groups or people while all the other TDs had to work around their schedule. This system is more democratic, because of the proposal of schedules and following discussions and compromises to the final schedule. This is the process for scheduling sanctioned events in Alaska that I would employ if re-elected. Please forward this to anyone who is interested who I may have missed, or who asks about it; Thanks. I look forward to hanging out and golfing with everyone this summer more. Keep on hucking.

I just want to say thank you to all of the members and officers putting in so much time on Kincaid for the state championships. If I could get into town and had free time I would be there to help you all. I know how much work it can take to make these things happen and really appreciate everyone putting in the effort to make states what it is!
See you all Friday!
