How much money from your "sanctioned event" gets kicked back into your course and since when have any of your "sanctioned" events ever kicked back more cash into your course than one at Chandler and all the "non-members" attending.
Since when have you or your course ever done anything out there without having to ask for monetary support from the club?
As for my event and Centennial....... I broke even for the event. But I have donated several hundred dollars to the course. The sod wasn't free, neither were the first tee pads markers. The extra dirt wasn't free. All of the concrete on the baskets wasn't free. All of these expenses and others came from my pocket. Could I have asked club for help? Maybe, but Ithought, how nice would it be to have a course that the club did not contribut one dime towards. Since they can't get the city of Tulsa to contribute one dime or get credit for the 100K we have put into the Tulsa courses. They won't even replace a stolen basket.
Can you say that? You can't even say the members from your event paid for anything. All of their money goes to the Parks Friends slush fund. The concrete was paid by the club. Just what has Park Friends given back to the course or the club?
And don't say its the county workers putting in the baskets either, they get a pay check for that. I can gaurantee Park Friends didn't pay for that.
Also, in trade, my course has provided new golfers for all of the other minis around town. They pay their fees, the club gets the money.
You can biatch all you want but the only thing not being a member prohibits me from doing is voting ot getting 2 free hot dogs a year. If you want to campaign for Centennial being removed from the schedule of events or advertisements, go for it. I'll just stop telling them about all the Tulsa events they should be playing and that ChandlerStock is nothing more than a cash cow for the TD and the Park Friends.
At any given mini, you can't tell me who is a current member and who isn't.
If all the current members are lifers, then what are they doing for the club?
You lose over $50 a year to me, just take the rest of your losses for this year and buy me a membership.
