I was under the impression that the ADGA was the group focused on the state as a whole, but apparently in the bylaws of the ADGA this is not the case. I agree with others who see the need for the overarching association, and feel like Anchorage should have an Anchorage oriented club like Moose Pretzel in Homer, FDGA in FBX, etc. With this in mind, I can think of this taking place in two ways. 1) ADGA bylaws are changed to focus on Alaska in general and Anchorage starts a new club or association. 2) Anchorage keeps the ADGA as it is, and all of the clubs (ADGA, MPDG, FDGA, etc) form the new union. Either way is doable, and both will take some work.
(Below I use clubs to refer to the local clubs/associations, and association to refer to the larger state-wide organization)
Concerning the 'umbrella' association, I think it would be great if this association had representation from each of the clubs involved, this association carried the non-profit status so that all clubs could benefit from it, the association would carry the insurance under which all local clubs would use, the association would take bids from the clubs to host state-wide events (AK championships, State Doubles, etc), the association would work out any scheduling issues, and the association funds would serve as a pool for the local clubs to borrow from for running tournaments/events. Funds could come in the form of sponsorships, donations, profits from state-wide events, fundraisers, and memberships. One idea I had about membership fees is to split with the local club. For instance, the initial entry fee is $25-$30 ($25 with a disc from the ADGA, $30 with a disc from the ADGA and the local club), with the $20 split between the ADGA and local club, $10 each. Then renewals, which are $20, are split between the ADGA and local club as well. Officers for the 'umbrella' association could be elected from the state membership pool at large, completely separated from elections of the local club. With some sort of organization like this, all of the local clubs would benefit from contributing to and collaborating with the ADGA, and the ADGA would truly be a state-focused disc golf association. These are just some thoughts thrown into the mix. I am more than happy to work with folks to see something like this go through.
