I agree there are bigger fish to worry about right now.

But if I were them, the good business answer is to prorate the 2021 renewal.

Maybe just discount the price of 2020 membership? Charge 75% or even 50% for any new memberships for the rest of the year, and refund the difference to anyone who already registered.

I haven't registered for 2020 yet, but was planning to register before some summer and fall tournaments.

Assuming the disc golf world is back operating, why would there be any difference in renewal/registering in, say, August, for the last 5 months of the year, this year, as opposed to any other year?

This, if anything.

PDGA's expenses are probably, substantially, the same. A discount on renewal would mean---what? Cut-back on services? Staff?

I hope the PDGA does nothing about the fees and those who don't like it please don't sign up again.

Why would the PDGA do anything before they end the suspension? Are we going back to playing in May, August or November?

No one knows when the suspension will end at this time.

I realize this is a disc golf forum, hence the specific PDGA question. I am not sure if the poster re-asking about the refund is just grinding an ax or not. Given he is not a member....?

There are several disc golf related investments that could be asked the same, if one was inclined to think that they are so personally so important, in times as these.

Park annual passes. I have 2, essentially now going unused. I live 45 min - 90 min from any of these parks, and I am not playing now.

Disc golf annual passes. I have 2, for the same park systems.

My personal investment into other clubs, via player pack purchases on cancelled tournaments.

My personal investment in hole sponsorship, donated to clubs after cancellation.

My clubs financial strife and loss due to cancellation of tournaments and leagues.

Taxes from bond, voted on recently around here. Supporting a park system that has a couple disc golf courses. I may make use of the park to walk or bike, but most of my visitations are over, for now.

Add these tiny, personal, hobbyist interests to the multitude of avenues, that my money is traveling, toward unusable ventures and I could stay busy for months warbling about the injustice. I simply think it is safe to say, we are all paying in the form of sacrifice, in a ton of ways. Maybe we should just embrace the common unfairness and rejoice our collective ability to overcome.

I know, I know...Cum bye ya. But, this is how I am getting a grip on this life altering event. I cannot control the events, I can control what kind of person I am, in response.

just curious what is your annual personal income

what about net income for entire household

im not expecting you to disclose that information but point being dg players arent exactly known for their wealth you seem to be better off than most on here and that may impact your stance on this issue

for some people the $50 is like $5000 to them

If people are that strapped for cash, they most likely aren't paying the PDGA for a membership to then go pay more money to play tournaments.

If they are tight on cash and they choose to spend money on non essential things anyway, that's a risk they take and they are liable for it.

I wouldn't pay $5000 for a PDGA membership, people who do have their priorities in the wrong order.
