Smoking and Drugs
Here is some recent information related to questions raised during the election campaign:
Some members wanted smoking policies to be clarified before being asked to renew their membership for 2012. At the October teleconference we voted for a modified smoking ban for PDGA Major events. Rebecca Duffy, the official PDGA spokesperson, has written an excellent article about this on the PDGA front page. All the details are there.
There has been an interesting development on the drug-testing front. The WFDF (World Flying Disc Federation) has approved the WADA (World Anti-Doping Association) rules for international competition. The PDGA is not a member of WFDF, but it will be interesting and instructive for us to look at and learn from how this example affects other disc sports.
