Re: Ask Chuck Kennedy
Ya know when you get something stuck in your teeth... (j/k)
Perhaps it's sacrilegious but I haven't carried mine for several years but I do carry my Official's card instead. But then most know that I'm probably a member at events. The card is your assurance that you don't pay the $10 non-member fee or making sure you get in an A-tier with a walk-up reg. I know in some areas, clubs and disc retailers provide 'disc'ounts if you show your PDGA or club membership card.
I think the cards may have collectible value at some point considering the kinds of things that people value that are 25 or more years old. And who knows? Maybe you'll become famous and signing the cards could supplement your retirement.
With the world becoming more hi-tech, I'm thinking down the road, people will have that rice sized data chip embedded on the back side of their arm. When you pass by the chip reader at check-in, they'll know you're a member if your chip got "renewed" that year.
Rater of the tossed arc.
