The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
So, I did this year was try to empower some of the people that were on the outside that I thought would be as asset to what I like to call "the team". So, this year I let other people handle the club nights (we have 3). I rarely even went as a matter of fact since we were running so many tournaments in 2008. At first people did not quite know what to do. I was always there running the weekly events and when I did show up I took no responsibility for what was going on. By mid-season those people that I had hoped to set up, did step up, and ran the weekly events pretty well. This year these people will have an actual title (they don't know this yet) of Course Captains or Club Night Captains.
This year in 2009, I going to be passing off the TD responsibility to some other members in the club. It will just be the smaller unsanctioned events but, this way they can get their feet wet and get a feel for what goes on behind the table. Running that many events (5 of them C-tiers) plus club events is pretty taxing on me, my game, and my family. So, I need to get other people out there active in this part as well.
Trust me I understand what you wrote in the end. I truly feel like I forged this club. There were groups of people out there who were running doubles but, I took that and made it to a 100 member club with 14 tournaments in 2 years. Handing over the reigns of power was tough but, I realized that it was something that I had to do...
It is the duty of all the officers of a club to take constructive crtiticism, fulfill there position in the club, and function transparently.
