Oh my mistake, even better... So who does get paid then?cgkdisc wrote:Board members have not been paid. A few have a few adult beverages at late dinners after the 8-10 hour planning meetings at Summits.

The citizens of Georgia paid for it thru sales taxes, manufacturer and heirs donated the equipment for the three courses, labor to design and build the courses was mostly donated, the monthly rental for the building is significantly less than equivalent commercial square footage and the pro shop sometimes brings in more per month than those rental fees.
PDGA members have essentially gotten a free national HQ facility with three courses that could be considered a profit center. Even if members never go there, they should thank those who followed thru with the creation of this complex.

They've done a lot of good for the sport. It will never be mainstream entertainment.
You don't have to be mainstream to have millions of patrons, dollars, and influence. I disagree with the fact that we'll never be mainstream though, because it grows too fast and it's too universal for it not to. In fact, I would already call it mainstream in the US, it's just not mainstream on a professional level - which has bigger obstacles to overcome.
The future holds new owners and decision makers at the helm. All the OG disc golf pioneers are getting very old, and they protect their passion/investment with extreme diligence. My guess is that retirement will open up a whole new set of doors for this sport.
