The number one goal I have is to try to consolidate pro fields in surrounding states. This may be a slow process, but I'd like to try to work with maybe 1-2 tournaments next year where we (Iowa) would have an Am only and a Pro only weekend and swap with Missouri or Minnesota so we'd travel there and they would travel here. It would take the cooperation of the SCs and a couple of tournament directors, but I hope to be persistent enough to make this happen and it's something I would start working on first thing this fall.
The second thing is to devise a fair and competitive way of allocating the state bid for the USDGC. I don't know that I would change what we've been doing the last couple of years, but I might make it consist of 1-2 less tournaments. I think it's been successful thus far, but I would like to hear from a few of the guys who have been involved to see if they like how it's going.
The third would be to simply uphold tournament standards set forth by the PDGA and to be involved with our TDs to make sure everyone has a reasonable chance to hold events in their areas. As I stated before, communication is going to be the key. This job is going to get tougher as more ambitious clubs and TDs are stretching the calendar.
