Reminder that elections for the 2012-13 MADC Board of Directors will be held this month, starting at the Fall Picnic on Sunday, October 14th. Club members will be able to vote for candidates to fill two-year terms for the positions of President and Treasurer, as well as one-year terms for all three at-large positions. Candidates have until this Sunday, October 7th, to declare. Please see the 2012-13 Elections thread on the forum for more details.
With the growth of disc golf as a sport, so does the demand for more courses in the area. In turn there is an even higher demand for volunteers to conduct maintenance, design and
implementation efforts. Without our members this could not happen. MADC hosts this annual event as a way of giving thanks to our members for their continued support.
