Hello Everyone!

We are going to need to move the next meeting to the second Tuesday in March as Brian G., Louie and I are going to be out of town at the Discraft Memorial Championship. I appreciate everyone's flexibility.

FYI-I have secured a toll free conference call center for the out of towners or in towners to call in on. This number will be coming shortly as will the location of the meeting.

Thanks Again

Matt Forney

Hello All, Some things we need to start thinking about before summer is upon us, are Tournaments and TDs. I would like to get these taken care of sooner than later to get them in the PDGA magazine and get to the business side of raising money and growing our sport. Do I have any volunteers for TDs. The following is a preliminary schedule that was discussed at the last ADGA meeting: May 7th World's Biggest May 21st Girdwood (PDGA/TD=Kurtis) June 11-12th Homer City (PDGA/TD=Edan) ... more

Since I started the discussion, here are my goals: 1. Avoid the injury bug. Avoid the injury bug. Avoid the injury bug. It bears repeating. 2. Continue to grow the Kenai Eagle Club. 3. Finally get tee pads in for the yellow tees. 4. Help with planning/installation of a rumored Nikiski course. 5. Help prepare a new batch of players for leagues/tourneys 6. Further support promotion of DG in Seward 7. Play in one tourney outside of Alaska. 8. One 1000 rated round (this is my pipe dream). ... more

In 2011, I want to see the Back Nine Project at Russian Jack installed. Begin working on North Jack, an eighteen hole course on the north side of the park. Run a recreational league on Tuesday nights at RJSP. Get a few rounds in at the new Hilltop Course. Work out a new configuration and upgrades for Peters Creek. Play On!

Fun topic Chris.

I would like to win a sanctioned tournament (preferrably States). Attend three tournaments Outside: The Memorial, Am Worlds and ??? And lastly, end 2011 with a rating above 920.

WIN State


Chris Goodrich    January 20, 2011 at 7:42am

Now that things have died down a bit. How about a fun topic.

What are everyones' DG goals for the 2011 season?


Chris Goodrich    January 12, 2011 at 8:39pm

I figured, wasn't worried just amused. Who hasn't had typos in their papers? Thanks again for posting it, I had been interested in reading the bylaws for a while now, some of it was a little surprising, but it is all good to know.


tim kosednar    January 12, 2011 at 6:24pm

Yes Chris, $20 is correct to renew. I had to transcribe the document and may have made some errors. Hopefully only a few.


Chris Goodrich    January 12, 2011 at 5:47am

Thanks Tim, that was an interesting read. I especially liked the (assumed) typo on the renewal fee for membership. Here's to hoping that was supposed to say $20.


AK Discer    January 12, 2011 at 5:36am

Thanks a lot for the post Tim, I've been curious of this info myself.

Today is the last day to have nominations for board elections next month February 1st, 2011.


tim kosednar    January 12, 2011 at 4:56am

My previous post is a copy of the bylaws from 2004

Anyone who wants to be a part of the future of the ADGA and disc golf in Anchorage and Alaska should renew their membership or become a new member of the ADGA. Nominations are currently being accepted for board positions and voting will begin later this month. Only current ADGA members can vote so get your membership and become part of this election process. The more votes we get the stronger the club and the board will be. GET OUT THERE AND VOTE PLAYERS!!!


Chris Schaefer    January 5, 2011 at 8:22am

Thanks to Brian for a calm, civil meeting. I was happy to see an agenda and to have it followed in diplomatic fashion. Thanks to Chris G, Edan and Kurtis for calling in and being part of the conversation. I think we got alot accomplished in a positive manner which cannot be said for the last few months of club meetings. Let's keep moving forward in a supportive, positive manner. Remember to turn in any additional nominations for Board positions to Brian by 1/11/11.

Chris Goodrich    December 31, 2010 at 10:05pm

More questions in the run-up: Who is eligible to vote? Are only 2011 members eligible or are 2010 members still able to? How does Honorary Membership work? Are they always eligible to vote? I had previously asked for a copy of the by-laws to be posted. Brian let me know how difficult it is proving to find an original copy. Is there anyone on this board who has a copy stashed away somewhere? Maybe one of our original members? It would be good to see the original vision statement( ... more
