Here is the updated points for the GVDG Monthly series. As always please check behind me that was a lot of people to calculate points for. Only 2 monthlies left to win free entry to the DEPC. Intermediate is the most contested but you cant blink in the Adv or Pro. But I am thinking Leanne has the ladies division all wrapped up. With PDGA divisions being a little different than our monthlies I've moved a few people around to be in their normal monthly divisions, I only did this for a few that are serious contenders for the points. If you would like all of your points in one division let me know and we can get them changed.

June Club Meeting

Club Meeting Agenda
The GVDG Club Meeting is this Wednesday, June 11 @ 7:00pm at Big Bubba’s Burgers near Pitt Community College. Club meetings are open to everyone and current club members are eligible to vote on agenda items. So join us on Wednesday for some food, fun, & focus-time on the following agenda:

Doubles Price Increase
Over the last 10 years the club has been in existence we have never raised the price on any of our discs. As you can imagine, disc manufacturers have risen along with inflation. Because we value paying out as many players as financially possible on Monday & Thursday evening, we will be discussing & voting on a possible price increase for doubles registration. 

Upcoming Workday for New Benches
Stew has done an amazing job of building the club some new benches to replace several rotting ones. We’ll need some help setting these new benches into place. We’ll be voting on a day so that we can make this happen. 

Down East Players Cup Preparations
October is right around the corner and we are starting preparations for the DEPC. All members present will be voting on the invested amount of merchandise for CFR discs. These are the custom order discs that will feature the DEPC 2014 logo! 

Possible New Disc Golf Course For Greenville
The GVDG club officers & board members have been invited by the city of Greenville to the Bradford Creek Golf Course next week to discuss the possibility of expanding this ball-golf course to include a Disc Golf Course. Bradford Creek is looking for various options to increase traffic and revenue for their grounds.

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 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.

January Monthly Tournament

Sunday January 19th we are running our second annual "David Guy's One Disc Extravaganza" so don't miss it. What is a one disc extravaganza? Well thats the best part leave your bag at home and bring two things a putter of your choosing for the first round. A putter as defined for this tournament is any disc with speed 3.5 or lower with a blunt nose so if your putt with a firebird you are SOL. the second thing you need is a disc you are wiling to let a stranger throw. The second round will be the mystery disc round using any disc speed 4 or higher (mids drivers etc.). All the second round discs will go into a lottery and each participant will be given a number assigned to a disc and you will play the second round with only the mystery disc. When bringing your second round disc keep in mind that it must be PDGA legal (no holes, not broken, and not the 99 cent dog discs from pets mart) and it should be marked in a manner so that we can easily return it to you at the end of the day. When you pick this disc remember its what your competition will be throwing so chose strangely, just to make it interesting you wont even get to see your mystery disc until the cards are picked up on the way to your hole to start round two so good luck. As always with a Guy event expect a few interesting mandos and different basket placements just to keep you on your toes.
