Elections

It's that time of year again to nominate the GVDG officers for 2014 - 2015. If you want to run or nominate someone to run get your nominations in at either Monday or Thursday doubles next week. Voting will take place from the membership monthly at Robert Avery's on May 3rd throught Thursday doubles the following week. You can vote in person at any of the 3 events or at anytime during the week via email sent to gvdgsecretary@gmail.com Emil's need to include your name as we may not recognize your email address. Remember only current club members may vote so pay your dues soon to be eligible to vote.
I know a lot of people have been looking for some new plastic in the club store lately. Unfortunately it was not prudent to order additional discs due to the large amount that was previously left in the store. All of last year we only made one disc order, and that was used primarily to replenish base line DX plastic that was low. Thankfully with the start of a new doubles season we are finally in a comfortable place to order new plastic and we are looking for as much input as possible. Please post here or contact a club officer about any plastic from Prodigy, Discraft, and Innova that you would like to see ordered. We will be looking into additional vendors after this order.

Thank you.
