I bust my butt 51 weeks a year for disc golf as a SC and it's nice to take a week off and get to have some fun!
Apparently, they didn't invite them all, or these particular invites came after the August 31 deadline. I was the coordinator here up to August 31 so I got to determine the State Rep spot, but someone else took over after the recent election. If the new guy got invited (he didn't take it if he was) days after he got the job instead of the guy who had the job for the two+ years prior, that's kind of a shame.
Not that I could have scrambled on short notice to make the trip, but it would have been nice to have the option. Oh well.
I'll stand by what I said that the USDGC staff did a poor job communicating the option once it became available.
