He would like to be part of the meetings to discuss ideas, plans and issues. Those interested please let me know. I don't know if we will do the Prez, Vice Prez and so on formula....just have something established. I will post shortly time and place we will be meeting. Hopefully we can do this in a month or so.
i had this conversation with veedz after the BW cup tournament, and how if a club was organized which included a parks liaison who could work with the city to make course changes that the membership voted on would be great idea. That way if you're a paid member you can voice your oppinion well before work gets done. having a goal to work for is key.
i have the dsm bylaws and such and have read up on what a club would take. it's pretty in depth and a lot of work. i think it can be done with the right pieces in place. having lawyers and accountants involved is always a turn off.
i also think until this is done, no-one will take us seriously in our area, which i'm cool with too.
