Oct. 25th, Elver Park]]>Tue, 13 Oct 2015 18:54:34 GMThttp://www.madcitydisc.org/home/mcdg-fall-picnic-sun-oct-25th-elver-parkBetter late than never ... the 2015 MCDG Fall Picnic will be held Sunday, October 25th, at Elver Park. More details to follow, but as usual, it will include a singles round for bag tags, free lunch for MCDG members, the start of elections for the MCDG Board, and fun games. Please spread the word!
Speaking of elections, the following seats on the MCDG Board of Directors will be up for vote:
Vice-President (2-year term)
Secretary (2-year term)
At-Large (3 positions, all 1-year terms)
Seth and Brad will be starting the second year of their current terms as President and Treasurer, respectively.
The board generally meets once per month. Admittedly, we did not meet as many times this year, and club activities were quieter this year, in large part because we were down multiple board members. This upcoming year will be a very important one for the club ... in case you haven't heard ... WE'RE HOSTING AM WORLDS!!!!! With that, MCO, our normal club events and outreach activities, we're going to need lots of help. Please consider running for the board. You can let us know you're running by posting to our Facebook page or sending us an email. Please indicate the position you would like to run for. Thanks!

<![CDATA[Spring Kickoff POSTPONED to Saturday, May 9th]]>Sat, 25 Apr 2015 01:41:28 GMThttp://www.madcitydisc.org/home/spring-kickoff-postponed-to-saturday-may-9thThe MCDG Board has decided to postpone the Spring Kickoff to the rain date of May 9th, in two weeks.  Even if the chances for additional rain tomorrow morning and mid-day do not materialize, the forecast still calls for damp, cool, and windy conditions, and the course may still be soggy from this evening's rain.  We realize this decision won't please everyone, but we feel it is in the best interests of the club and the Vallarta-Ast disc golf course.  We look forward to better weather and a strong turnout on May 9th.  Thank you for your patience.

Also, please note that the Short Grass Open is still scheduled to take place on Sunday at Capital Springs.  The $10 additional fee for registering on-site on Sunday will be waived.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend, and gets some disc golf in one way or another!
