2011 Board Elections

Postby Chris K on Tue Jul 13, 2010 2:48 pm

It is time to think about the past year and what went right or wrong. The River City Flyers needs your help as volunteers to improve the disc golf scene in the St Louis Area. Do you want to get more involved in the direction of the club or on a specific course? Do you have an idea to raise money? The current board members are willing to repeat for 2011 but we need new blood on the board. Please post your thoughts and solutions and your willingness to help here.
The best way to make changes for the better is to step up and help out.

I was very disappointed that the price of plastic went up almost immediately. One of the "benefits" to joining the club was discounted merchandise. I'm not sure why that decision was made, but I'd be willing to bet that less plastic was sold in 2010 than in 2008 or 2009. I think the pricing scheme from those years would sell higher volume, thus yielding greater profits on merch
Plastic: Price
DX, Elite X, most GDS putters: $8
Pro, SS & SSS GDS Putters: $10
Champ, Elite Z, Evo: $12
Star, ESP, GDS equivalent: $15
FLX: $15-$17
CFR: $20

I also think volunteers shouldn't drink while they are dealing with tournament scores, payouts, and money collected

Saving a buck or two plus tax is huge to me. No complaints about pricing.

More important is getting work done on the courses, improving relations with the government agencies, stabilizing the Club's finances, and increasing awareness of our sport through interpersonal and media contacts.

i would like to see some of our tourneys turned into fundraisers for specific purposes like concrete pads, tee signs, trashcans, repairs, benches or whatever but i think if lets say we had a tourny for tee signs for unger and ALL the money from the tourney went to teesigns we would have a good turnout and get some major stuff accomplished and im sure im far from the only one who wouldnt mind my 20 bucks going to fix or improve a course or even sell cfrs for improvements like there doin in st.chuck for new chains but with as large as the club in stl is all of our courses should be in top tier condition

St Louis golfers and club members, be aware it is time to think about the elections in October for the new year, 2011. Who wants to be President of the club or a member of the board? You can throw your name in the sombrero here and/or send me an email. The club is growing and there is much to do. That is, the club needs your help.
Many of you have ideas for change and this is your opportunity to make them a reality. Grab a seat and get in the conversation.
Thanks for your interest,
Chris Kinsella

It may be helpful to people that are thinking about running if the board positions & responsibilities are listed. Also, who holds each position now and, of those volunteers, who will be running for another term/stepping down?

This may not be the place to post this but I'm going there anyway.

Our club nationally is really one of the best in the country. Our marketing plan has been copied by many clubs. We've had our sponsors ask, do you mind if this club contacts you about how to run a good club. I know many people may no believe this but it's true. Now having said that our club is not perfect. It never will be. You can't please everyone 100% of the the time. The fact we have nearly 500 members tell me we must be doing something right.

Even though I've not helped in a long time with the club I've been very vocal about what I'd like to see the club direction. To me it boils down to "Making Our Courses Better". This last year we've had many people step up to make this happen like bridges and drainage issues. The thing I'm more excited about than anything else is the fact we're going to plat trees. This actually makes the hole more challenging and in many cases makes the hole safer. We've lost many trees in the last couple years and by planting trees this will help get the holes back.

The present officers with Chris as the helm have done a great job. But, they need more help.
Lastly, I'd like to see the St. Louis Open get bigger. How do we make this happen?

James, Course Captain is an appointed position. The right person spends a few days each week at his golf course. Some of our course captains work on their course every day. They are the face of the River City Flyers. Many of our course captains were doing the work long before we recognised them as Course Captain. The board will take your request under advisement. Thanks for your interest.
