Called to Order
6:35pm, December 12th, 2012 - Our Lady of Guadalupe Day


Those in Attendance: Marsha Sonderfan, Dave Straight, John Bird, Ken Hughes,
Cam Farmer, Chad Francis, Rob Liebman, Max Maclay, Doug Bjerkaas, Lance Trott,
Mike Storrs, Kyle Harrigan, Josh ? (I apologize), Jay Burghardt

Finances - Ken Hughes handed out an Assets and Liabilities Sheet as usual, and
he stated our finances look good at this time

Website Update - Chad
mentioned that he is still perfecting the waitlist for tourneys that fill up.

Membership Updates -
Dave Straight said that he plans on ordering 500 tags out of gate this year,
instead of pieces at a time. He said that since it is a lower cost for the
bigger numbers, that even if we don't use them all, it still is cheaper in the
long run. He said that he is still working on exactly what will go into the
players pack this year, but he assures people will like it. (Ok, I added this,
because I like it!)

Tourney Updates - Winter
Warriors - Winter Warriors is in full swing at this time. They are on pace to
reach their goal of raising $8,000 for the Food Bank of the
Rockies, that they set at the start of the Winter Warrior Series. Jay
Burghardt motioned that the club donate $100 to the Winter Warrior Series in
the names of Jeff McCormack and Ray Woodruff as a thank you for their hard work
and countless hours volunteering they have put toward this.

The board
voted unanimously in favor.  

Spring Fling - Marsha
confirmed the dates for the 2013 Spring Fling, being Ams on Saturday April 6th,
and Pros on Sunday April 7th. She asked that registration be opened on March

Jay Burghardt
questioned the board about whether we solicited any input from
neighboring states about their schedule so we did not overlap some of
our signature events with them, but the opinion was given back that if the
neighboring states are concerned about overlapping events, they should be
contacting us.   

RMWDC - Mr. Bjerkaas
spoke about the 3rd Annual Rocky Mountain Women's Disc Golf Championship. He
had decided to make this a two day A tier for Pros and Advanced, and one
day for Intermediates, Rec, and junior divisions.  He is hoping this
will spark a desire to come join us this year from the top Touring Pro Women.
It is the week after Colorado states, and again hoping that top Men players
will hang around Colorado for the week, and then support the top Pro Women. He
is still working on which courses will be played, but will keep the board
posted as we go.  The board gave him a tentative on the amount of
financial support it will offer him and said, it will be at least as much
as what was offered last year. He also said he would like to have the
registration opened in the next month or so, to put into the minds of the
players a date to set aside a commitment.

Course Issues -
Lighthouse - One basket is missing a chain - Also still trying to find out who,
from the club, has authorization to move the baskets.

Outback - It was
reported that all 18 holes are in, baskets with multiple pin placements, and 18
concrete tee pads.

Elections - elections
were held during the last 30 days. 5 people ran, for four spots - 59 votes were

Rob Liebman, Marsha
Sonderfan, Mike Storrs and Jay Burghardt were the top 4 vote getters and were
welcomed to the Board for the next 3 years. 

Board voted to approve
the vote and welcomed the new board members

Summit Meeting - It
was suggested and agreed upon to hold a "Summit Meeting" with all of
the Board Members. It will be held at Ken Hughes house on Sunday, Jan 6th. The
purpose will be 

to discuss ideas, and
projects for the club as a whole before they are presented at a board meeting
for open discussion.
