Without taking sides, this sounds like the best option...

I would like to know who questioned Brian's character and committment to ADGA at Tuesday's meeting and called for a change in leadership. This is an absolute travesty in my mind. Brian has done so much for the club this year and to call all of that into question and negate all that he has done due to the unrest regarding the USDGC bid is beyond my imagining. I agree with Dale's comments below about all of this causing a separation in the Alaska disc golf community. We are too small to have such division in our state.

I actually spoke to some peeps and nothing was ever mentioned about having an all ADGA board member vote saying John should go. The president resigned and from what I can tell about reading some of the responses, John has misrepresented himself about truths supposedly told and quoting people that didn't say what was quoted. It almost seems like this is an act of desperation instead of just dealing with the fact that we don't have control over the matter. It was for 2011 and there is a 2011 US ... more

We all know that I will get the 2011 bid if it was there to give, but as of now, the “bid” USDGC has been moved to 2012. 2011 was the label of the assumed next USDGC. The prize was the A BID to go to the USDGC. I know that, you know that and everyone else that spoke up knows that. You have had an overwhelming amount of people response to you about this matter. E-mails, phone calls, posts online and the document of quotes I put together for you, were all in response to you wanting people ... more

John, you won this year's point series and the prize was the 2011 USDGC Bid. If Innova decides that the State of Alaska gets a bid to the 2011 USDGC, then the bid is yours. As far as 2012 USDGC Bid goes, I'm not going to to make any kind of decision now for a tournament that is two years away. Innova has not even announced how qualification will be decided for 2011, who knows what is going to happen in 2012. I'm sorry, that Innova and the USDGC decided to switch things up and I really hope that you get to go to Rock Hill next year to represent the state of Alaska.

Edan, we have been playing phone tag for the last few days. I will keep trying to get you on the phone but until then maybe this is a better way to ask you a question or two. I realize we have alot of unanswered questions about next year. With that said, are you going to honer your points series and pay out a bid to the next possible usdgc? (That was the intention, right) Even if that means you can't pay it out until 2012. I'm asking this question only because their has been no final announcement that a bid will be paid out.

Kurtis- the Alaska Disc Golf Association has an official association website which is used for official information, announcemnents, schedule etc. Discgolfscene.com and facebook are social networking tools, to any business, and work great for their purpose- social networking. The club needs to continue to utilize the website for official business and announcements.

As always- big THANKS to Louie for keeping our website going!

I've made that suggestion before, but this isn't "our" site to post that kind of club business. I thought it was a great idea for the same reasons that you have Kurtis....there is more traffic here within our club, than on our club site.

I know we are posting the ADGA minutes on AlaskaDiscGolf but maybe we should post them here as well? It seems like more and more people are using this site for information and to chat rather then our ADGA site. Thoughts? Thanks to Jamie (I believe) for taking minutes and to Louie for putting them up on the site!!!

YAY! finally, closure on this topic. I've heard of the segregation this has caused in the disc golf community.

The announcement that the USDGC was moving to a biennial schedule was made August 25th, but it was poorly advertised. I was not notified and did not know about the change until after the End of Season Tournament. And just recently, on Dec 1st another announcement was made and now the dates for the 2011 USDGC are set and that the first qualifier is already scheduled. Innova and the USDGC have not announced whether or not there will be state representatives receiving bids in 2011. I sure hope ... more

Question for Edan. The announcement that there was no 2011 USDGC came in August before the 'Tall Grass Open.' Some quick research shows August 25th, there was an announcement made that the USDGC would become a biennial event. With the point series only halfway done, when the announcement was made, the reward for the winner could have easily been changed before the 'End of Season Finale.' What I'm getting at is this, why wasn't the prize for winning the point series changed when the announcement ... more

I'll call when I have time away from work today.



Also, my "committment" has nothing to do with the USDGC topic being discussed here. All my posts and statements were in regards to this only. Please stay on topic as these other things can be discussed in a more appropriate forum.

Hey Sean- I don't know what your trying to do here, but I'll tell you what i'm trying to do. I am doing everything in my power to ensure that the thoughts of disc golfers are conveyed to our SC. Everyone on that document knowingly committed to sharing their views. If you do not feel that way I apologize for not being even more clear. How dare you try to tear down the credibility of that document, and me. You should be ashamed of yourself. Remember Sean- we are on the same team- just disc ... more

My statement was construed as me changing my mind? My mind never changed, I was undecided by saying I can see both points of view. There was nothing listed in my previous statement that I decided one way or another. I remember when the point series was near final decision...it was for the 2011 bid, not 2012. We don’t have the ability to foresee what anyone involved in disc golf is going to do or not do. I would like to see the governance that the ADGA has over the State Coordinator i ... more

here in michigan it is the way it should be I believe the way that thad kind of touched on, the michigan resident that places highest in the state championships. the strongest player at that point in time in the state. and there is no issue about it the state coordinator is the last one to settle a dispute if there is even one other than that the michigan disc golf organization creates the program and then they stick to it which seems to be the problem that you have there... you need to stick ... more

What are other State Coordinators doing to resolve this issue in their home state? I'd be interested in hearing that as it might provide some insight.
