The "BEAST" Of The Woods › Capital City Disc Golf Club October 19, 2012 at 1:18am
Capital City Disc Golf has proven rather effective at collecting money and making good use of that money for events jackpots that benefit SOME of the players. It seems to me CCDG could afford to negotiate with the Camp Taloali owners for a annual membership for the club that would allow for a set number of CCDG hosted events without parking fees for players. The idea that Camp Taloali will be able to profit or break even for that mater on the disc golf course with "donations" or parking fees is not realistic.
So what's the point? I think the fact that Camp Taloali is private property IS it's best quality in terms of how CCDG can host events (with Taloali approval) of a larger scale with sponsors that would likely not be able to promote their products in city parks.
I have beat the street for sponsors more than any two other CCDG members combined, and I can tell you big sponsors are out there, but only for events were these sponsors can relate their products to disc golf at the events. Thus the private property quality I mentioned earlier.
I would like to see Camp Taloali disc golf events rival Horning's events in terms of the FUN FACTOR.
CCDG has the players to fill these events, we just need leadership to think bigger.
