I (RM) will be attending a MDGO (Michigan Disc Golf Organization) meeting this upcoming Sunday. The meeting will be a time discuss the various disc golf club events that will occur throughout the 2014 season. It will also be a period to discuss fundraising and how each club can spread the joy of disc golf throughout their communities.
I am also in the middle of getting the Ice Bowl event fully prepared. Don't be surprised if you hear something over the radio regarding it. The Ice Bowl's main goal is to help feed the hungry... which is why our main charitable organization is going to remain Feeding America. I'm working with someone who really looks forward to these types of events, to advertise and increase sponsorship for the event. I am hoping to increase turn-out for the event by using this person's skills of community outreach. Those who are interested in possibly ordering special Ice Bowl discs must contact me (RM) as soon as possible. I will be trying to place my order within the next week. I can provide you your options once I am contacted. I apologize for not having this info made available to you at a sooner time, but there have been some technical difficulties.
I am looking for sponsors not only for the Ice Bowl, but also for 2014 events and league season. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please contact me.
Lastly, I would like to begin holding meetings to discuss what can be done to increase members of the league, how GRDoD can benefit the communities in which our members come from, and to obtain ideas on how we can make Brewer Park, Riverside Park, and possibly other local courses better places to play at.... I have seen an increase in destruction of course items over the past few years. I know we can't prevent all damage from being done, but I would greatly appreciate any help in determining ways in which our club can decrease the amount of damage and course aesthetics changes.
Thank you all for being a part of the expanding sport of disc golf. I look forward to the opportunities that will arise as being the President of the Grand Rapids Dogs of Disc.
