Happy to relate that Helena Disc Golf, Inc., a new 501c3 nonprofit, had its initial board meeting last night! We're still in the process of figuring out what the exact relationship between HDG and the SGDGA will be, but the basic idea is that HDG will be taking over all of the functions of the Helena disc golf scene that it can while making sure to qualify for full tax-exempt status as a public charity. So, for example, all course improvements, amateur and junior stuff, disc golf in schools, etc., will be run through the nonprofit. Pro side of local tournaments will likely be kept separate. SGDGA will continue to run league rounds.

The board of directors for the new nonprofit is:
Jason Schmidt (President)
Travis Brower (Treasurer)
me (Christian Dietrich) (Secretary)
Heather Davidson
Michael Madsen.

We'd be more than happy to help other clubs review their legal status, filings, etc., if anyone is interested.
