May Meeting Minutes

 May GVDG club meeting. Location was Max's house. 

Attendance: Max, Daniel B, Joshua Lee, Mike, Vince, Jarrett

1-Finances: Adam could not attend so we do not have an exact figure in the bank. We donated $1500 from the GVDG IceBowl to the Pitt County Social Services Food Bank. We also paid Innova $961.25 for our most recent order. 

2-Club inventory: We are ordering 50 additional 2020/21 membership shirts to cover those that have not yet received their shirts. We are ordering 75 pins from DiscGolfPins. Jarrett is talking with Mitchell Frederickson about getting additional items for the club store. We can place another order with Innova at the end of May. We do not qualify currently to order from Discraft as we did not have an account previously, uncertain when they will open up for new accounts. 

3-Match Play - Max is ordering shirts for match play from Rob Gerard. Also ordering trophies. 

4-Summer events: We are looking into options for running either PDGA C-tiers or PDGA league on Friday nights through summer. Max is contacting Michael Blackmon to see if he still plans to organize some 1 day PDGA events this summer. UPDATE: Michael is planning on a 1 round flex start July 25th at Farmville and 2 round event at Meadow August 21, both events would be C-tiers. GVDG Mystery Tour and Membership Appreciation will be July 24. We are planning to run 2-3 flex start C-tiers on August 7th as part of National Disc Golf Day. 

5-Discord: Josh provided an update on the Discord server he's been maintaining for the club for the past month, currently we have 34 active members. We will continue to advertise the discord service. If we get a larger audience Josh explained some of the additional services that could be deployed to make the service more useful. These services have a monthly cost associated. 

6-Member outings: Brubaker is planning to start regular, possibly quarterly, outings of a non disc golf nature. Bowling, Wood Ducks baseball games, mini golf, and pub crawl are a few ideas with all disc golfers invited. 

7-DEPC: Brubaker is stepping up as a 3rd course TD so we are expanding the 2021 DEPC. It will now be a 360 person field. 3 pools of 120 golfers. 120 professionals, 120 Advanced, & 120 Intermediate/Recreational/Junior golfers. We are still on target to raise $10k added cash and will soon start advertising the fact. Waiting on final quotes but current plan for Am players packs is a Discmania Active basket, DiscDots, and another item. Prices are set at $150 for all professional divisions and $115 for all amateur divisions.
