Default Biggest DG Club?

What DG Club has the most active members? Our Charlotte DGC is big (over 500 tags for 2019) but wanted to know what other clubs have large membership bases and what kinds of activities they do for members. Peas and thanks!

That's huge. Wow. What do you guys charge for membership out of curiosity?

SFDGC usually weighs in the upper 300's, maybe touching 400 by the end of the year. Membership dues are $40 (or we usually do $20 specials for the remainder of the year at The Safari, which is held in September).

What % would you estimate is Juniors/Kids/Under 18?

We're kind of an "older" club, probably influenced greatly by the urban environment - we really only have a handful of kids with tags at most.

We use DGU to track it.

Looks like 12 Children signed up out of 470 so far.

How ironic on the timing of this post. I received my membership packet in the mail yesterday for the Charlotte Disc Golf Club. The bag-tag (mini) has number 526 on it. Guess I'm fortunate to live in the Charlotte area. Lots of great courses.

NOVA is a much younger club but will wind up with around 400 members over the course of the year. Dues were $25 if i recall correctly.

I don't know how many are in the Rocket City Chain Gang (Huntsville, AL), but club memberships in northern Alabama seem to stay stagnant despite the fast growing city of Huntsville. wellsbranch250 would know better than I as he is an active member. There was a recent split with a new club being formed. Even I haven't joined this year. I'd guess around 100 for Rocket City Chain Gang and 20 for the new club?

The once mighty MFA has fallen on hard times lately. Only about 200 members it looks like. The MN disc scene is weird now, lots of different groups but no central identity. In the past we had a strong MFA and the Sundog league to bind the whole thing together.
