The future may be now! I feel the the non profit issue is a big deal, but not the main issue.
my feeling is that the ADGA should have the non profit status so that all clubs in AK can accept donations to promote local as well as statewide dg initiatives and those donating can write it off on taxes.
Each club can have a balance as well as the ADGA as a whole.

1. a group of people organized for a joint purpose.
2. a connection or cooperative link between people or organizations.

My feeling is that ADGA is the place to bring all AK DG organizations together.

Let's not get stuck on a name, ADGA, ADGC, AKDGC call it whatever you want the question is.....
Do those involved in Anchorage DG want/need a club solely focused on the Anchorage scene?

Whatever your position on the above question,I think that we can all agree that there is a need for what the ADGA has grown into, a statewide organization.

Than let the members vote and decide on who they want.

Thad, what do YOU think?

Thad Murgatroyd   December 19, 2013 at 12:47am

I think Anchorage needs a Discgolf Club/Association and a "council" of a Representative from every club that want to be involved .Due to the size of our state we will have to sort out the technical issue of having those meetings but it can be figured out.I have been off the mind for a yr o ... more

What's the Alaskan Outlaw Discgolf Club up to right now?

josh stewart   December 19, 2013 at 5:20am

The adga is the anchorage club. Name is irrelevant it was created first therefor Alaska disc golf association was available. If there is to be some statewide organization then the individual

Pulled a Boyd there. My iPhone sucks I'll finish the thought tomorrow. But as this is already anchorages club and the majority of the revenue comes from here, I feel it not out of the question to hold our elections based on our existing by laws. If rewrites and restructuring is to happen it should happen after we vote a board in.

josh stewart   December 19, 2013 at 5:29am

If we the majority of the membership chose to turn the adga into an all encompassing statewide club then we will

josh stewart   December 19, 2013 at 5:36am

Finished thought from earlier, presidents if the individual regional clubs can pool capital and resources to better the sport. The statewide club/association council needs to be set up. The handing over of the adgas capital to further the regional clubs agendas shouldn't sit well with the major ... more

I want course maintenance, new course designs and proposals, bigger tourneys, better players packs, and more participation for anchorage. I'm already confident that the other clubs/associations have that handled. Anchorage is not quite on track

Thad Murgatroyd   December 19, 2013 at 11:53am

I put the Outlaw club on hold in order to not cause any damage to the ADGA . I felt that if I didnt like how the club was doing I needed to get back involved with the board and work to make changes and improvments

kurtis schoenberg   December 19, 2013 at 3:21pm

How is the ADGA an Anchorage club when the President lives in Homer?

Jeremy Boyd   December 19, 2013 at 3:33pm

Well, the bylaws currently state that the ADGA is an Anchorage club. Can't we just create a new statewide org and allow the ADGA to function as it was originally created?

Jeremy Boyd   December 19, 2013 at 3:34pm

It seems that it would be easier to do so rather than essentially creating a new club and redefining another.

kurtis schoenberg   December 19, 2013 at 7:23pm

I personally feel that the bylaws are out of date and need to be rewritten. I would rather change a few words in the bylaws and be done with it then create a new statewide organization. I don't see that being very easy and considering its practically in place, why change it? The bylaws haven ... more

Jeremy Boyd   December 19, 2013 at 10:55pm

I agree that the bylaws could use revision, I guess I was just speculating (as I'm certainly no legal expert) as to which course of action would offer the smoothest transition. I hope that my earlier posts haven't given the impression that I'm necessarily in favor of one option or th ... more

kurtis schoenberg   December 19, 2013 at 11:28pm

it would be nice wouldn't it Jeremy? I thought people knew who to use the internet in 2013. Thanks for all your input J-Boyd, keep rockin the chains.

Pat Miller   December 20, 2013 at 12:27am

Where can I find a copy or link to the bylaws?

kurtis schoenberg   December 20, 2013 at 12:30am

kurtis schoenberg   December 20, 2013 at 12:30am
