They're pretty professional at taking dues from 800 rated rec players and funneling it to elite events serving 1% of the disc golf community.

At the very least, I can breeze through posts quicker, without pausing to wonder what that's all about.

With the time you save, will you do anything meaningful with it?

As a 501-C(3) organization, they cannot "hide the books"... that's one of the most idiotic statements ever. Here's just small sample:

2012 Budget & 2011 Actuals

Interesting, I always kinda thought the IDGC was of a waste of money but in this document it shows that the IDGC generates enough revenue to essentially pay for 75% of its expense, not bad and certainly much better than I would have guessed.

And yes to the original point, it is incorrect and an uneducated statement to say that a 501(c)3 is hiding their books, that's how you get your nonprofit status revoked.

It may just not hitting the caps or caps lock key on the first letter. I do that occasionally.

Perhaps I should have fleshed out that thought for the kool-aid cult members. Tell me, can you tell from those statements how much was wasted on each consultant, flying pDGA staff around the globe, staff "incentives", membership processing overpayments, etc. etc. ?

It's easy to hide the waste when you break down a million & a half expenses into 15-20 categories and then claim that's enough. Perhaps it's enough to comply with the IRS but the pDGA certainly doesn't want folks to really know how much they shovel to their connected pet projects and people. For just one example try asking what the pDGA got for $89,000 for consultants in 2012 and see what they won't disclose. Then tell us how transparent they aren't. But that would take too much effort for you I bet.
