Re: Inclusiveness

*possibly excepting leagues, due to low propagator numbers and the slightly more casual nature Yes, I would be very wary of leagues ratings. Bedworths looked skewed on occasion with 6 or 7 propogators. they looked better when there were 10+ QP with 3 propogators were a joke at times. 905 rated roun...

Re: Inclusiveness

MODS currently uses BDGA insurance of £1 per head. This can be sourced cheaper privately which is something I am looking at for next year (albeit at a larger upfront risk for me and I would prefer to see the money stay within Disc Golf rather than go to an insurance company) We have also had some bi...

Re: Inclusiveness

Suggesting the Tour is irrelevant because 1000s of people play in casual rounds, weekly leagues or one dayers is a bit like suggesting the Premiership is irrelevant because big Sam isnt including the star striker from your local pub team in his national team considerations... Not suggesting that th...

Re: Inclusiveness

20% ? Do 20000+ disc golfers use the forum? Don't undervalue the size of the sport in the country. There's over 100000 people that play every year and growing. With regards to 100000 I agree with Tom. Quarry Park sees around 5000 people in a summer (I think) and mendips is similar I believe. These ...

Don't undervalue the size of the sport in the country. There's over 100000 people that play every year and growing. The bdga appears only focused on a tiny tiny portion of this number If that is the case (and I've no idea where you got that number from), then the BDGA trying to be inclusive of 1000...

Re: Inclusiveness

I believe we pick a team of players who have not only shown consistency over the year but also a commitment to British Disc Golf and their reward for this is to represent GB at international tournaments. No. You are rewarding people who show a commitment to the BDGA Tour not British Disc Golf. They...

Re: Inclusiveness

There is a little bit of he who represents the country has the most money going on with the current system. minimum 4 BDGA events - total cost of each including event, travel, accommodation, food etc. around £200 so at least £800 + membership £35. More likely needing at least 6 to ensure enough good...

Re: Partners

I imagine he's referring to a UK based Disc golf company listing the BDGA as "partners" alongside commercial partners on their homepage. Were the BDGA aware this had happened? If so was there a pre-approved agreement between the two parties or can we all do it? If not aware - can we all do it or alt...

Re: Development Committee

As far as I am aware BDGA is not a commercial operation nor does it have a commercial role or arm to further its development. It is a players organisation that acts as a hub for those that need information about playing disc golf and helping to develop the sport. It has a role in helping develop ne...

Re: Development Committee

In January this year I was copied on an email from James from a holiday camp in North Devon, also copied were the other businesses. What a great idea that was, all of us could then give the person what they needed. I followed up as I assume did the others. The person involved at the Holiday camp lef...

Potential course owners / users / hirers need to be sold to. . This, this, a million times this. [mod edit - highly unnecessary and nasty] You're doing a great job.

Still no further with this. Massive miss. Please advise urgently the situation so all members can be aware of the plans.

Re: Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park Disc Golf Course

Turns out Beths just booked us on a group holiday with a few other families to Woolacombe, without realising it was the one I had just put a course on :) Looks like I get to go play my own course :) If you're looking at holidays to North Devon I would definitely recommend the park, it's excellent es...
