For today's meeting there are some key guidelines and info to keep in mind:

For the Summer PS feedback:
We are looking for open and honest constructive feedback. All views and ideas are welcome if they are presented for that purpose. You never know where the next great ideas will stem from. Many call this "Green Light Thinking" and we all should (especially me) simply take the feedback and log it to think about over time. No qualifying or validating this feedback now - capt ... more

Jake - Thanks and I agree with your desire and motivation. The question on this topic, from many discussions in the past, came down to balancing the very active players with not so active players; new players and those who have very busy schedules. How do you define a PS so it encourages more play but does not discourage those who wish they could but are limited in how often then can play. "If I can only play 1 or 2 times and others are able to get points for 3-4 rounds a week then I mig ... more

on a side note....Does anyone have a good website to order discs from? I have CJ's around the corner on North Territorial and there are a few shops in Brighton/Ann Arbor that are carrying discs, but I know I can get a better deal. I am digging around on the web, but I'm not seeing the deals I know are out there. Amazon.com has discs, but I can't find anything with a free shipping deal or anything. And nothing against CJ's, but sometimes they can be a tad high on the prici ... more

I wont be able to attend in person, however I will follow in this section. My only concern with the CO-OP has to do with the limitation of rounds used to rounds played. I think there should be incentive to play more league rounds. Our winner played 50 league rounds this year which is roughly 1.75 league rounds per week. If we are trying to bring leagues together and get people mobilized there should be a feeling of "Gotta get to leagues" Maybe increase the cap from 2 league rounds per week to 3 or 4.

Usually to join a Skype room, you have to be on the Room Admin's buddylist. So basically we need your Skype name, add you as a friend, and then you can invite people into the Room. I think you can do a public room, but those can get crazy because ANYONE can just join it. Once added to the room you can bookmark the room.

Looks like Skype has a group video option if everyone has the latest skype. I think I may just setup a WebEx meeting for 1.5 hours. I'll post the link here and you can open it in a browser and we can share documents, audio and video. I'll set that up tomorrow and post the info here by 5:00 and have that for anyone who needs to join the meeting remotely. I have not had many confirmations so it may just be a few of us - less input but things will go faster.

Your ahead of me Mike - since you are the first to respond back on a video connect I guess Skype is going to be the video connection method. I'll look into a "Skype room" - new to me but I only do limited skyping with Grandma so she can see the grand kids. I'll check it out and post the info here for anyone who wants to see and hear all the fun. Thanks - Join when you can

So I looked ahead at my work load and it's going to be a crazy Friday. Won't be able to make a 5:30 meeting, but I can jump on Skype. Is there a Skype room already setup?

Ok - so I would sign up 3 or 4 times for homemade pickles but what would get others out there, besides me promising not to bring my pickles - Flip City - you just have to love it.

Sounds great. I sold out long ago, so fortunately I have a 8-5 job M-F. 5:30 for this Friday might be cutting it a little close, but I can certainly follow stuff online. Will there be a link, or something like a net meeting, con-call, etc? I'm doing the family thing, so it kind of restricts my playing in the past few years, but I'm willing to help where/when I can :) I live right around the corner and have made Independence Lake my sudo-DG home. Drop me line, add me as a friend or w.e I am loving this site btw :)

Mike - Great! Everyone's input is welcomed and any help is greatly appreciated. There is a meeting this Friday online and at my house to discuss the recent Point Series and plan for the Winter 10/11 and Summer 11 PS and league activities. This is a state wide activity that is the result of the cooperative collaboration of the leagues and those players who wish to contribute.

You can always get involved in any discussion online here at any time. That is one of the great aspects of th ... more

Hey fellas. Just starting off on tracking all my disc golf needs online. Been playing for 13 years but never really did anything online. Would love to be more involved with the local crew(s). I see you guys have a meeting coming up this week, maybe I can catch the next one. If anyone would like to point this DSG noob in the right direction, I would sure appreciate it. Cheers
