- Grouse Season Opening tournament 28 Jun 2014 (details, registration, registered players)
- Hub City Huck @ Bowen Park, Nanaimo 12/13 Jul 2014 (detail/registration currently one and the same) [note: you may have had it on your calendar as 19/20 which were the original dates, in case you note a discrepancy on the internet somewhere]

Of the above only the Hub City Huck is a PDGA sanctioned event (B-Tier), while the others are just local tournaments which require BCDS membership.
Additional events without online registration are taking place as well, so look around if you want to play more or less locally.
The BCDS will award Practice Baskets to the first 12 clubs with 50 paid members for 2014/15 membership year. Current memberships expire August 31. Offer ends September 14, baskets to be awarded at the AGM. Contact Paul Brownfield (Membership Coordinator) to confirm your memberships.
Clubs with 50 or more 2013/14 members—don’t forget to take advantage of the BCDS Large Club Affiliation package. The club will receive 50 BCDS stamped discs for use as the club sees fit (for fundraising, allocation to members, as event prizes, etc.) and 50 custom bag tags (valued at approximately $105—club to supply image for the tag stamp). Contact Paul Bownfield (Membership Coordinator) to confirm your memberships.
The BCDS would like to work more closely with the Provincial PDGA representative, to be elected this year. As a result, for the first time we will be endorsing a candidate in the election, and will invite the elected representative (endorsed or not) to sit on the BCDS Board. Individuals planning to run for this position and interested in being endorsed by the BCDS should contact Craig Sheather. We look forward to working more closely with the PDGA!
The BCDS has allocated $4,000 to a second round of provincial course development grants for 2013/14. Applications must be received from a recognized club no later than May 30. There are no restrictions on the amount requested or requirements for a cash-match from the club; however, the pool is limited to $4000 across all applicants. As such, applicants are requested to provide a minimum and maximum grant request. Successful applicants will be expected to provide a report of the results of the grant to be presented at the AGM and archived on the Website. A letter of support from the municipality is required for all infrastructure improvements and course development, unless the course is on private land (in which case a letter of support from the owner is required).
Deadlines and submission information
To apply for these funds, please send a description of your course development project, as well as details regarding how the funds will be spent. Make sure to include a minimum and maximum funding request and send the entire package to Paul Brownfield. Closing date is May 30, 2014.
