1: Finances- Club has $13009.35 in the bank however most of that is entry fees for the DEPC and sponsorship.
2: Monthlies- Sept 14 Jacob Whitton is organizing a Discraft AceRace. Entry is $30 and you must register by August 31 on discgolfscene.com. Vince Tricarico is organizing the Tour de Pitt on Sept 28 playing every course in Pitt County, flyer and additional information will be shared soon.
3: New Courses- Oakwood School has reached out to Vince to assist in the design of an 18 hole course, the course will be fully designed however it will be installed in phases over the next few years. The school will allow people to play the course after hours and on weekends once completed. Farmville disc golf course had it's first round of clearing completed, there is some additional clearing to be done before pads and pins will be installed. Vince has attempted to contact Ayden to see if GVDG could assist in improvements to their course however he has not received a response yet.
4: Grow the Sport- Vince has proposed GVDG setup a college scholarship program for a local graduating high school senior that plays disc golf. We are exploring the additional needs from the club, taxes, paperwork, and fundraising. Everyone at meeting approved of the idea and we will have additional information at the September meeting.
5: Old tee signs: So far 5 signs have been auctions off raising $540 for course improvements, there are an additional 5 signs to be auctioned off. We need to build 3-4 benches, replace all the tee sign posts, and improve 11 Alt and 13 All Star pad with the money raised. Picture below shows current status of the signs.
6: New signs- Rob Gerard has completed the design of all the new signs. Max is getting him the artwork for the hole sponsors then we will be ready for signs to go to printer.
7: Change to custom discs- Max proposed changing the club store to remove stock stamped discs and only carry GVDG stamped discs to help spread the club brand. We will be able to get custom discs from Innova, Discraft, Discmania, and Dynamic. We will be able to offer more companies however fewer disc molds due to order quantities per mold. Everyone agreed and we will implement this moving forward. We will continue to order limited edition and first run discs just not stock stamps.
8: DEPC next year- We will be applying to be an A tier for the 2020 DEPC.
Fundraising: If you know anyone or any companies that would be interested in sponsoring the DEPC please get in touch with Vince or Max. Currently $3832 in sponsorship in hand with an additional $850 to be collected.
Coursework: Vince is organizing a workday on a Friday he is off work to build tiered system on 11 Alt pin. Date TBA. Sept 15 after Sunday Baggers will be a workday to do additional trimming and clearing around the course, holes 11,12,13,15 will be primary focus.
