-Main Goal should be developing a relationship with the city so we can eventually get them to do what we want
-Action to get there. Maintain courses or improvements
- Promote disc golf in general
These are great goals, I would keep them at that and hold off on further growth, like courses, until you establish a stronghold on or meet these goals
NOT 5 season
Cedar Valley ......
Figure out a name for the club
The Cedar Valley is synonymous with the Cedar Falls / Waterloo Area, I would stay away from that name ..... Maybe just the Cedar Rapids Disc Golf Club or Cedar River Disc Golf Club, Cedar Rapids (or River Disc Golf Union, Cedar Rapids (or River) Frisbee Association (or Club), Cedar Rapids (or River) Disc Golfers Association, Cedar Rapids (or River) Flying Disc Club, Cedar Rapids (or River) Flyerz (or Flyers), Eastern Iowa Disc Golf Club ........ or The City of Five Smells Disc Golf Club
Structure of the club pretty much need the 5 positions (pres/vice p/treasurer/secretary/_____)
For your 5th position I would go with either a Course Director or a Publicity Director, depending on what your number one goal is. With a Course Director this person would guide & spearhead the course improvements and maintenance tasks, the rest of the board would have the tasks of spreading the word and making the Club more visible. If you go the Publicity Director route, this person would be the one who spearheads the marketing of the club and promoting involvement, the rest of the board would take on the task of directing course work. I would go the Publicity Director route as marketing the club and spreading the word will be the most important thing in the beginning. From what I've read your clubs main goal is to gain a better reputation with the parks departments and to take better care of your courses. Seeing how this is going to be a board wide task I don't see a great need for a Course Director at this point as you all will have your hands in it.
- Zeller park can maybe be turned into a disc golf park (miller/kvn)
- South Side park would be sweet if there was a course there
It actually Van Vechten Park ..... and yes it would be a great park for a course ...... but I would hold off on future expansion until current club goals are met.
- CAN'T MAKE THE CLUB into a league
Why not have the Club run the league .... it’s a great way to promote membership and generate interest, as well as offering another revenue source.
People interested in a board role
Congrats to all on engaging in this endeavor .... it will be a fun and hopefully fulfilling journey

It would be great to pool or match up similar interested club members into club activities or segments.

It is recognizable to the outside world and does not restrict the area.
I really like the Cedar Valley name and didn't realize it was synonymous with just Cedarloo. After all, CR and surrounding areas are in the Cedar Valley too, including Wildcat Bluff. I'm not sure about using the Cedar Rapids name solely as other communities would feel left out such as Marion/Hiawatha/Mt Vernon/Vinton, etc..
CR is our main focus as far as relationship growth but should it be in the name of the club?
