In attendance:  Jon Baldwin, Stan Pratt, Steve Lonhart, Jim Hagin, Katie Beckett, TJ Goodwin.
The meeting was called to order at 6:10

Dan Shermis is going to do the tee box of 23 at the end of March, or early April.

Stan is going to get a letter from the city about work that can be done at the course, such as chain sawing and other clean-up.  We’ve been told we can do clean-up work, but want a letter.  Jon has an e-mail that says it’s ok for us to do work.

Steve Hammack called Jon about a player taking out envelopes and leaving a nasty note in the iron ranger for the city to see.  We should encourage the player to write the city, directly, to address his issues.

Tee pad for 26 a needs to be made.  It should be a smooth transition so it doesn’t get in the way of the mountain bikers.  Perhaps we can get permission to drive to the top with equipment.  Slingshot might know the guy so we can get into the gate.

Account money is okay considering the expense of buying membership t-shirts and bag tags.  We currently have $8,000. 

Steve H said budget meetings are in July so we need to consider what we need from the city.

Three or four years ago we lost our non-profit status due to tax issues.  Stan is trying to get in touch with an attorney who works with non-profit organizations to get some help.  Stan may need to ask Russ or Dave Levan for help to resolve the situation.  Having that non-profit status would help us raise money for big projects.

Stan is working on the Master’s Cup entry form.

We have about 80 memberships sold and a new order of t-shirts have come in.  T-shirts will sell at the Masters Cup

Steve is willing to be the point of contact for maintenance at the course.
On the forum, we can post that clean-up needs to be done, if interested, contact. Steve Lonhart.

Meeting adjourned at 7:30

Meeting was called to order at 6:24 pm

OLD BUSINESS

Stan reported that 67 memberships were sold during the February monthly.  We ran out of med and large shirts, so we’ll re-order a small amount of shirts.

Stan is going to set up the membership on PayPal

In the future, perhaps we can link club memberships with the City’s annual pass

Rob Harding – old membership e-mails that we can use?

Club Newsletter – Add that if people haven’t re-upped for 2009, go to web site or see Mark at the van.

Link minutes into newsletter, get involved in club, masters cup, etc.

Quote for tee-pad of 23 from Dan Shermis approximately $870.  Tee pad needs to be elevated because of erosion, which is why the quote is a bit high.  Mark moved to proceed with this, Steve 2nd, all approved.

26a may be the next tee pad to be made

Dave questioned the use of the cement pad for a storage shed.  The city needs to ok this idea.

Last sleeve for the old baskets is in the ground.  Perhaps we can buy five sleeves and DGA can buy five. Merle has one sleeve…

NEW BUSINESS

Pay to park should be starting on 2/23, so when this is confirmed, we should post the information on the web-site.

Course clean-up was discussed.  Eric said he’d make a list of things to be done.

Adjourn at 6:53 moved by Jack, 2nd by Steve, all approved

In attendance:  Jon Baldwin, Jack Tragaser, Stan Pratt, Steve Lonhart, Katie Beckett, Mark Karleskind, TJ Goodwin

The meeting was called to order at 6:15

-Parking: Parking down the middle is difficult for large vehicles to get out.  What can we do?  Ask them to paint “compact” in some spots…  Once pay parking goes in, parking along the road will be forbidden

-Club pricing structure: Cost for shirts -Tourists shirts for general public is $6.50; club shirt is $6.50, and club dri-fit is $17.  Quantity – tourist shirt – 10 doz   Dri-fit –

bag tag and shirt – $25
bag tag, cotton, & dri fit, & tag – $45 
tag only $15

At monthly, people can pay for their membership then receive t-shirt(s) at end of the monthly.  Stan, Jon and I will organize the shirts during the monthly.

-Steve Hammock
-He brought a sample graphic for a welcome sign for the park.  We asked about adding the club logo, but he said they don’t do that.  We have a lot of feedback for the sign, which he wants.  Steve said we can submit other graphic ideas to the city for further review.  Anyone who wants to add input, e-mail Jon soon, as he needs to get it to Steve by Monday, Tuesday at the latest.
-Timeline for a gate and/or pay-to-park.  Gates are made and will be installed around Feb 18, and they will install two baler (sleeves in the ground) to block the road.
1st alarm will open the gate at sun-up, and close it about an hour after sunset.  1st Alarm will be there until around midnight, then police patrol occasionally. Parking will cost $2.00for a daily pass and $40 for an annual pass.  323 Church St for parking passes. 
-Overflow opens when it is dry and closes around 10/15
-The parking will be flexible and the city will work with us to work out problems.  Keep it simple and things won’t get complicated.
-The city will post signs on the road about pedestrians
-If we can continue to pay for the porta potty and trash until July 1st, the city will take over porta-potty and trash payments.
-Can we ever request paving the lower parking area?  Very likely in two or three years we can request they pave it.  It may cost somewhere around $50,000
-The city can deliver wood chips to us.

-Steve wants to see trails on holes that have erosion issues.  Jon wants to talk to Tom about working that out

-Tee box re-build, such as 2, 26, 18, etc.  Building 26a and 23 are first priority for Master’s Cup.  Dan Shermis agreed to help with 23.

-Dumpster – Dan will build it if we provide materials.  Materials may cost $2-3000.  Dan will let us know.
-Sleeve for 27 needs to be put in.
-Stan will TD the Faultline

October 30, 2008

In attendence:  Jon Baldwin, Stan Pratt, Jason Esper, Jack Trageser, Katie Beckett, and Mark Karleskind

Meeting called to order at 6:20

We need to be ready to begin with membership drive by January’s monthly.  We need to list what needs to be done:

-List of contact info for 2008 members – keep that current and should be contact list for 2009 members.

-2009 is the 25th anniversary, so we can use that in selling memberships

-Dri-fit shirt brand needs to change to a better quality shirt

-Jon can adapt the writing around the club logo to reflect the anniversary

-Stan will have Scott place the bag tag order after the anniversary logo is designed

-Tag ideas  – club number is not numbered
– another set that is different – numbered, for bag taggers – sold separately and handed out only at bag tag night or monthly.  Perhaps have a separate set of numbers for women
-Pay-out at end of season for top tags

Bulletin board needs to be moved. 

19 long is closed off – not a part of original plan
22 is seeded

27 can be moved about 10 feet away from where it used to be, up the hill
6 could be 30 feet shorter of where it is

People need to meet with city people to figure out what is going on with changes that were made that weren’t discussed, and see what else needs to be done. 

Maintenance crew – get a group of people who play a lot, to be ready to do maintenance work as needed.  (Kevin Crew may be ready for a break)  For example, some benches need to be moved, according to the city. 

Meeting adjourned at 7:10-

August Meeting

In attendence:  Derek Kotval, Eric, Jon Baldwin, Stan Pratt, Mark Karleskind, Dave Thomas, Jason Esper, Katie Beckett, Jack Trageser

The meeting was called to order at 6:21

Jon, Jack, Susan Harris and Steve Hammock met last Thursday.  We are going to be able to park at the course, in the area below.  Can take out 23 and park there – up to us.  Before they start, port a potty removed and can either place it at 8 or down by 22 and 23.  8 may be better for easier access by port a potty people.  We’ll get the big one removed and add a regular size porta potty at 8.

The dumpster needs to be relocated, so we should reduce the size as there aren’t many trash cans on the course, and move it.  The city would like graffiti on the dumpster to be cleaned off. 

The benches at 23 need to be removed.  The construction company will remove them and we need to think about where they should go.

27 and 6 needs to be relocated.  Until we re-design holes, 27 should move to the short position.  A temporary sleeve for 6 can possibly be placed, once we see what the project looks like.  23 tee pad needs to be moved up.  (6)They can pull out the dirt and concrete of a sleeve, and move that whole chunk

The bulletin board will need to be pulled.  We can figure out where the board goes after the project is done. 

The city was very clear that none of the resources for the paving project can go to disc golf – just the paving/erosion project.

Stan suggested we pull the practice basket to replace it with a new basket, which he may be willing to sponsor.

Bridge from 19 to 20 will be pulled, and they don’t want us to use the trail.  The trail is becoming a creek, so erosion is bad.  They want us to walk the road over to 20.  Jon suggested adding a speed bump.  25’s tee and parking lot, there will be two speed bumps.

Funding is through Coastal Conservancy

The bulletin board could be close to 1, with big huge phrases about etiquette.  Tee signs should include the road is o.b.

Tag a way

Web page links to alternate courses?  Committee – Stan Pratt, Derek Kotval, Jon Baldwin and Jack Trageser.

Derek wants to add to the web site, the ability to sell duffle bags and caddy books.  Perhaps we can sell the books to other clubs to put into their players packs or raffles.  The books can be used by the club as awards for am’s for the monthly.  We could run an ad in Flying Disc to sell caddy books and can give them away with a 2009 membership.

Extra Masters Cup gear can be used as prizes to Am’s.  (Masters cup stuff is tournament money, so the club would need to buy it from tournament

Monthlys – Am 1 straight cash and prize.  Am 2 prize.  Am master straight cash and prize.  10 across the board.  If Am 2 wants cash, go to Am 1.  Prizes can also be used for CTP’s, etc.

Monthly – Don’t show up by 9:15, cannot play – period  ****post to e-mail and web site***
September monthly will be August 30.  Emphasize it will be the last monthly on the course, as it currently plays.  St Francis fundraiser will be September 6th.

Mark has volunteered to run the Faultline.  The date needs to be changed.  November 1 looks like it will be available. 

St Francis fundraiser:
Nate’s 2nd place reception, accuracy, dddc,  Mark suggested this also be the club BBQ Mark would like the club to pay for the burgers and hot dogs.  We need to make this a nice event .  Club voted to donate $150 for BBQ and a keg, for $300.00.  Sean Ulrich might be able to get keg together.

Club members invited to BBQ after round to…

Picnic after the tourney, (after 1:00ish)

Mark talked to Dave LeVan – Steve Hammock mentioned van is illegal… Need a permit to sell in a park, but the city won’t issue a permit to sell in a park.  – the van goes back to original selling set-up – city said club has rights to sell – van is the club presence – van is a central point and present.  No van, could be more problems.  If the set- up was more permanent, then the city may want more involvement.  (he is saying they cannot build a place for us to sell)  Our best approach has to do with revenue  and security – Show them the servies we provide that the park and the community – Important to have club presence at the site.

May try for a space.  The “the club would like a space for activities.”  Maybe in the next phase, we can push this.

Gate and iron ranger?  May have trouble getting money.  It’s up to us to determine how much to charge for daily parking and long term passes.

Parking lot means the park is going to stay – we don’t have funds to pave, the more the course is legitimized, the better.  The club helps with that.

7:57 adjournment
