Some how or another I forgot to mentioned in my list of things we have done, is we just co-hosted and ran a Discraft Clinic... =) Not sure how that one slipped my mind as I was running around my head cut off trying to keep all that organized.. lol

The tags can be purchased from league or myself as soon as we get the tags in, Once we have the Tags in, I will post the outline of the tag system and how its expected to work out. A short list of things the CDGA does other than league. -We maintain the course, Part of the mowing that gets done to the course is done by the club members (yes physically push mowing at times) as well as paying for mowing. The city doesn't cover it all unfortantly. -We have a handful of tournaments ... more

Thanks for the info Patrick. I hope that I did not come off as sarcastic in my question as it was truly earnest.

A couple more questions if you would be so obliged.

-When can we buy bag tags/when does bag tag start?

-If the CDGA is an umbrella organization what other events/leagues are run by the CDGA other than Tuesday League?

I never said they did not have the right to complain. I would just like to see more from them. Though if throwing a round on Tuesdays and complaining is all some people want out of the CDGA not much I can do about that.

I only provide time, places, and outlets for people to get things resolved. I can only do so much.

well patrick as a paying customer 2 the league players have every rite 2 voice displeasure in way that they see fit.


Patrick Fulkerson    May 31, 2012 at 10:40am

This is not confusing its very simple. 1) CDGA is not just a League. It is a club which has lots of things it does. Paying to play in a league should not give anyone the right to tell the club how to run its affairs. You don't go to a bowling alley and play on a league and expect to tell the owner of the bowling alley how to run his alley. 2) Everyone's invited to the meetings as everyone's opinions matter to me. I will listen to anyone who has an opinion on something espe ... more


larry j    May 31, 2012 at 10:28am

why is so confusing. so why invite people 2 a meeting if they cant vote doesnt make sense. if u play in the league players should be able 2 talk and vote on issues dealing with league plain and simple. also how much money is in the cdga league account This league is just rec league for fun and enjoyment.


larry j    May 31, 2012 at 10:17am

so the more money u pay means more voting rights.


larry j    May 31, 2012 at 10:15am

so do all board members need a tag also to vote also


Patrick Fulkerson    May 31, 2012 at 9:47am

Correct playing leagues and being a voting member are different. First meeting I was going to explain everything but again no one showed up. Short version is buying a bag tag is your voice when it comes to voting. 15$ for the tag 10$ of that 15$ goes directly to cash payouts the other 5$ goes to club to cover cost of tags and to help league payouts. Top 1/3 of the field will be paid in cash. Come to voting time you tag is your your vote essentially everyone is welcomed to show up to the meeti ... more


Blake Walters    May 31, 2012 at 8:09am

Patrick, who actually gets to "vote" on anything? The way I understood it, paying the $35 dollar league fee doesnt give a league member voting rights.


Patrick Fulkerson    May 30, 2012 at 11:24pm

Not sure how we lost a lot of players, when last year we had 37 players total for league, and this year we already have 39 players.

As far as the politics go, Its easy to view something as a dictatorship when no one shows up to the club meetings to submit votes / express opinions.

Speaking of which, Next club meeting is June 24th, After Sunday dubs. All are welcomed at Reidys in town. Every club meeting will be the last Sunday of the month after Sunday dubs. Hope to see more players show up for the meetings.


Nic Kronberg    May 30, 2012 at 5:14pm

Looks like you guys lost a lot of players this year.. sorry to see that. I miss being out there with everyone. Apparently I am not missing much, except a lot of bull$#!= Politics can do that to people. Especially when its a dictatorship.


Blake Walters    May 23, 2012 at 8:47am

How did I just find this news talk section??!!!

As for peoples oppinions on drinking, smoking, and how league is run I am glad to hear them being said someone where everyone can see. I personally dont have a problem with people doing what they want, but discretion should be used.


Davis _    May 22, 2012 at 12:13pm

Your argument has a huge hole in it. That would be the fact that just or not, pot is illegal. Even if you have your card it's still illegal to smoke it in public. It's still illegal and irresponsible to smoke it in front of children. Such flagrant illegal activity is bad for disc golf clubs. Patrick is well within the realm of reason to request that smokers use discretion while breaking a law.


Eric grimwood    May 21, 2012 at 10:49pm

What I want to know is why u are trying to parent other peoples children and why u think its ok for a child to learn how to gamble. 9 weeks and u will have one less person out there medicating them self to null the pain there body goes thew so they can have a good time. Must be your medication must come in a pill form for it to be ok. Sorry I don't want pills or alcohol eating away my stomach


Eric grimwood    May 21, 2012 at 10:42pm

Before u have people thinking I'm some inconsiderate prick I know this kid and his parents I respect there wishes to be educated about it and not ignorant about it. If it was someone else's kid I would have totally agreed with u. Some where in the argument i didn't hear u ask to step off to the side now if u would of started with that it wouldn't have been a problem. I don't need people telling me what I can and can't do


Patrick Fulkerson    May 21, 2012 at 8:16am

Frankly as a club this issue has already been debated and discussed. I do not care what your habits are, if your a pot head, a drunk, or what ever. No one really does. I do have an issue with anyone doing drugs in front of kids its unacceptable. If this makes me controlling or petty because I wont tolerate it then so be it. I do not care if you have a Pot card, I've already posted the Michigan statue law on what that card allows you to do. I also do not care if the kid has se ... more


Eric grimwood    May 20, 2012 at 11:17pm

Every plays with the same people cause of people like u that want to control every thing. In stead of being up tight try to make it fun for everyone. So what if someone wants to smoke or drink. Does it effect everyone playing prolly not. What I would like to see is these so called board members put there own issues a side and try to bring people into the club instead of running people away over petty stuff. What does it take for the board of member to sit back and realize there the reason why th ... more
