New Pre-registration Policy

As we move toward a prepay model for event registration, we are initiating the following policy regarding the current free preregistration system:
Pre-registered players must notify the TD no later than 6:00PM the night before an event if they cannot attend. After 6:00PM appeals need to be made to the BCDS Board on compassionate grounds. Failure to notify the TD or the BCDS Board will result in revocation of the right to pre-register (although your name can be added to the waitlist for the next event). TD’s will report to the BCDS all players who fail to show up without notifying the TD in advance, and the BCDS will report players ineligible for pre-registration to the next TD.

This policy will be pilot tested for the next event, so please make sure to get in touch with Ryan Hammerquist if you pre-registered for the Robert Burnaby Duck Golf event and cannot make it.

Thanks for your help as we improve our registration systems and policies.

South Surrey Course

The City of Surrey has developed three possible plans for some currently available park space in South Surrey. Option A, No disc golf and minimal services; Option B, Nine hole disc golf course and light services; Option C, 18 hole course and highly recreation focused. The full plan report can be downloaded at http://www.surrey.ca/files/Fergus_Open_House_boards_for_web.pdf. Relevant maps are on pages 8/9/10. The City has a survey online where you can vote your preference: http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/djmerry/fergus-watershed-park-open-house/. Please take the time to read the plan and fill in the survey. Please also make sure you send this info to friends and family in Surrey! Thanks for your help. (Note: Please feel free to fill in the survey, even if you don’t live in Surrey–they’d like to know if this will bring people to the city).

Beta Test E-mail list

The BCDS is testing a new member e-mail list. The list will only be used by administrators to send messages to subscribers regarding BCDS events, membership issues, and other important organizational announcements. This is not an open discussion list. We will pilot test the list over the next couple of months.
