Opening for PFDS Communication Director
From the desk of Jon Ebel:
I have decided to step down from my duties as Communications Director for the Pittsburgh Flying Society. I have accepted several freelance writing projects that require more attention than I had previously estimated. These are exciting and career-enhancing projects that I would like to explore.
I believe PFDS needs someone with the time, devotion and reliable software to effectively hold and maintain this position. It is a very important job. Communicating about the club and the sport itself is something we must all do to keep disc golf alive and thriving in Pittsburgh. I know I will continue to do so however I am able.
It is also important to link up with other sites. Iíve been doing so with the ďWalls Are BadĒ site, adding some of our events/tournaments every month. I think this may have contributed to the time PFDS made it onto WDVE.
Itís also a good idea to take full advantage of social media as itís the way of today and likely the future of media. I was disappointed (and confused) when someone suggested NOT to use Facebook as a marketing/recruiting tool. Wouldnít that be defeating the purpose? The Facebook group now has 70 members (nearly 50 more members since I started to manage it).
If someone would like to continue publishing The PFDS Spin, Iíve attached the three issues Iíve completed so that whoever wants to do it will have the layout.
I will keep my promise and assist J. Gary with this yearís Scholastic Series (except for the one at Knob which falls on my wedding anniversary).
Iíve also attached the most complete mailing list as an Excel document. I created it manually, which was a pain but well worth it. Iíve been updating it with the info Kurt has sent me before each Spin distribution.
I will continue to do what I can to promote disc golf and other disc sports since Iíve always had a great time playing with my friends.
Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to become more involved with the sport I enjoy. Iím sure to see you on one of the courses!
Grip It and Rip It!
