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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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 seen it ... more

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

I also made the last statement in regards to just Tuesday leagues. If your referring to the Sunday (free) handicap doubles, or the 5$ doubles, those are each week. I just assumed you were referring to Tuesday leagues though.

If people want to be included in the weekly points for their division / ctps / Longest puts and such, its 35$. If someones in town and they want to join you for your league round. Bring them out and have them play a round with ya. They just are not eligible for the Ace pool/ CTPs/ LP or points from the league as that's all end of the year stuff. If you do have extra people playing, to make it easier on the League admins. Please have their scores recorded on another scorecard for them or k ... more
