Sportsmanship Nominations Sought
The PDGA is requesting nominations for candidates for the annual Bob West Memorial Award for Sportsmanship, where a sportsman or sportswoman is defined as someone who exemplifies sportsmanship both on and off the disc golf course, observes the rules of play, and wins or loses with grace."
Do you know of an unsung PDGA member player who consistently exhibits the qualities of sportsmanship and camaraderie during competition, and who has contributed in significant other ways to the positive growth of the sport for several years or longer? If you do, we would be very appreciative if you would email a brief statement outlining the qualities and contributions of the proposed candidate to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday May 24, 2013.
The PDGA office will review the nominations received and list those most deserving on the ballot to be voted on by the Touring Pros, the State/Province and Country Coordinators, the Major and NT event TDs, and the Board of Directors and staff.
David Greenwell was the recipient of the 2011 Bob West Memorial Sportsmanship award, which was presented to him at the 2012 Pro World Championships in Charlotte, NC.
