Ice Bowl Feb 20th – Langley

IceBowl-flyer

Come out and support a fundraising tournament for the Langley Food Bank Feb 20. This PDGA C-tier event will donate 50% of net entry fees and will also accept donations by non-participants–100% of which will go to the charity. The goal is to reach $1,000; let’s do this!

Fun facts:

  • The PDGA has officially been supporting Ice Bowls since 1987
  • over 140,000 players have participated in over 3,000 events
  • more than $2.5 million dollars (US) have been raised and over 600,000 lbs of food have been donated by participating disc golfers to their local communities

Registration opens January 6 at 6:00 pm at AceRunners.ca

 

Important information for Jericho Duck Golf

  • First round will begin at 9:15 am sharp, with players’ meeting at 8:50 am. We strongly recommend you be at the course no later than 8:30 am.
  • The course map can be downloaded here: Jericho-Coursemap.
  • In case you may not be able to attend, the deadline to have your entry fee refunded is November 5th at noon.
  • Uncle Fatihs will be donating 80 large pieces of pizza at lunch. That’s one per person so you may want to arrange additional lunch and snacks. Lunch break will be 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on round times.
  • There will be NO day of registration or additions. If there are no shows, spots will be given to players who are already on the waitlist, and are present at the course before the players’ meeting. In case this happens, spots will be given in waitlist order. Sorry, no exceptions, Paul McBeth included.

 

Draft AGM Agenda Released

Please find attached the draft agenda for the 2014-15 Annual General Meeting of the BCDS. Location details to be confirmed, but if another location can’t be found, we will hold the AGM at the Langley Course, October 3, after the Duck Golf Tournament. Dinner at 6:00, meeting starts at 6:30.

All members interested in serving as a BCDS Officer are welcome to self-nominate or nominate a colleague at the meeting. The BCDS Nominating Committee has offered the following slate for consideration:

  • President Elect: Leanne Fulton
  • Board Executive (to a two year term): Carolynn Howard
  • Treasurer (to a one year term, completing a two year cycle): Steve Crichton

If any members wish to bring any business or motions to the AGM, you are encouraged to contact us as soon as possible. See you next Saturday!

2015-16 Duck Golf

We’ve made a number of important adjustments to this year’s Duck Golf league. Full details can be found on the Duck Golf web page. Highlights include:

  • All events are now PDGA sanctioned for all divisions
  • Registration rates have been standardized by division. Assuming you are a current PDGA and BCDS member, fees are: $40 for all Open divisions; $30 for all Advanced divisions; $25 for all Intermediate divisions; $20 for Novice divisions; and $10 for Juniors.
  • If you are not a current BCDS member, you will be required to join the day of the event ($10 for a full year membership). If you are not a current PDGA member, you can either join the PDGA at the event, or pay a $10 fee for the event (if you plan to play more than 4 events, it will save you money to join the PDGA).
  • Total series fees remain the same, but there will be smaller CTP and Ace pots to cover the PDGA fees ($5 to the series; $2 to the PDGA; $1 to the BCDS; $1 CTP; $1 Ace).
  • To increase transparency, new payout tables are in use for all events. TD’s may also use the tables rounded to $5. TD’s MUST use one of these tables for payouts.

Questions or comments should be directed to the Duck Golf Coordinators or any board officer.

AGM to be held October 3

The 2015 Annual General Meeting of the BCDS will be held October 3, immediately after the Langley Duck Golf Tournament (estimated 6:30-7:30PM) in River Walk Apartments Common Room (thank you Carolynn Howard!). The BCDS encourages all members to attend the meeting and to consider taking on a formal leadership role in the organization–if you want to help drive disc golf in BC, this is your opportunity!
