If you’re interested in running (or helping with) a tournament in the 2014 summer series or hosting Provincials, drop us a line. We’re now setting up the 2014 tournament schedule and volunteers are needed! Thanks for your help!
The Langley Disc Golf Club will be holding a bag-tag reshuffle January 1, 2014 at 11:00AM. Details on the poster.
Please note that due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from Open Division players, the remaining Duck Golf events will be PDGA C-tier events. Individual TD’s may choose to seek B-tier status if they desire.
To avoid a $10 event surcharge, all Pro players should renew their PDGA memberships for 2014 well before the end of the year (to allow records to be updated).
We will also be running a six event summer series in 2014 which will offer players the opportunity to compete for a series championship. The Summer Series is currently planned to be PDGA sanctioned for all divisions (Open and Amateur). Amateur players intending to compete in the summer series may wish to consider joining the PDGA, which will save them $10 on summer series event registrations.
We are testing implementation of an online registration and payment system for Duck Golf 4 at Joe Brown Park. Registration opens December 1 at 8:00AM and closes December 27 at 11:59PM. Details can be found on the event page.
Details for the Nanaimo Duck Golf event can be found in the Forum. Registration will happen between 7:45 and 8:45 and we are aiming for a 9:00ish start. We will play 2 rounds of 18 holes on the normal course layout. Pin locations will be determined the week before, and I will not be printing out a map. Open divisions and amateur advanced will be playing the white/long tees, all other divisions will be playing blue/short tees. Due to the short days, be prepared for a short lunch break, and please bring your own lunch.
Tournament central will be at the shelter near hole #1.
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.
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).
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.
