I’m going to give Rod a done good on all of his tourney’s. Had a great time at all of them. Sad to see you resign but I understand completely. I have helped Rod on many occasions and will continue to assist any way I can with whomever steps up to take over. I have submitted the City special event permit that they require and would be happy to keep submitting them for any T.D.s . although they are not that difficult just a little time consuming. Someone will need to acquire the insurance required by the permit from a company for non PDGA tournaments. I have a local company that will provide insurance but I don’t know what the cost is yet. I have the insurance form but have not submitted it to see what it would cost. They need dates and such that I don’t have. They did say if we could provide dates for the year it would be cheeper/less processing for them. PDGA insurance is $50. The city also requires $100 special event permit processing fee. It takes 21 days to process the permit. Don’t know what the fine is for not having the permit. Could be cheaper, who knows. If you don’t get a permit, you’re on your own. Everyone I have talked to at the City from secretaries up to the Mayor seem to be very happy with NUDGA, what we have done, and I would like to keep it that way. I would suggest that if we don’t get the permit, don’t hang signs for tournaments at Riverdale on the course.
