Hey NUDGA'S! I am pumped up for 2012, even if it will be the end of the world, lets go out with a bang! I don't know where else to post this, so here we go.

First, I think there should be an organized leadership in NUDGA. The way things are ran now is if someone wants to run something its up to them individually. The guys who do run things are awesome and thank you, but there is no real NUDGA schedule of events. There needs to be organization overseeing who and how and when events are run. For example, I would like to help out and run some events this year but am not sure what is happening in Northern Utah. I want to continue running Huktoberfest. In addition, I wouldn't mind also either running Riverpark Open or helping to run a series of tournaments similar to the "Eyez On The Prize" series that was run in 2010 (and 2009?). I ran a series like this in Idaho last year and would much rather do it closer to home.

Also, there is great potential for new courses in our area. I would like to help us get some more courses. If you know of any areas or parks that would be good disc golf potential from Bountiful to Idaho, let me know! I have a ton of experience dealing with cities and universities in proposing disc golf courses. A good NUDGA leadership would help follow a proposal through from beginning to end.

I was playing a tag round yesterday and didn't really understand why. Is there some point during the season that we get a reward for the tags we have?

NUDGA has always been great to work with ever since I lived in Idaho. I really do love you guys and am not trying to bag NUDGA in any way. I just have a fire in my belly and want to help get NUDGA up to its potential.
