SDG April 7th “Emergency” meeting Re: covid
Meeting conducted Via zoom
Attendance: Jason Coutu, Casey Murray, Scott Chapman, Wendy Chapman, Kevin Baribeau, Kodi Poettcker, Andy Palmer, Jay White, Kris Roach, James Lawson
JL: meeting with City, business as usual, not much direction from them. Alt locations at Reid needed re tree damage. Gave the nod to receive alt pin locations at Deif and evaluate, could be done despite covid situation. Not upset that we did little last year. They are ok with a putting green at Deif and at Reid, submit that with proposal.
How do we decide on new pin locations. In the past we tested layouts at league and got feedback, Covid makes this a challenge. What if we had a day where we spaced out groups (a weekend day). Only household groups. Would baskets walk? Lets form a committee to work on this. JW and JL have previous alt pin locations, they will find and share.
-Committee: JL, JW, SC, KP, JW, AP
-Submit proposal for each course, to start with Reid.
-Logistics, if we give them a layout, they can approve and then we would install
-Grant due at end of month, JL on it and SC will help
JL speaking for Kai. Contemplating that there will be no Sask Open. Idea: disc Olympics, to attract new people to the sport.
Match Play: waiting to fill second bracket. Then we could start to play.
Do we want to try to get creative with Saskopen? Put off decision until Next Month
