How did this decision come about? I read this site faithfully and never saw any discussion or heard of any open meetings on this proposed expansion.

Previous "open discussions" have not gone well. The "Too many cooks in the kitchen" syndrome.

What "open discussions"? As I said previously, I have never heard anything on this subject until this morning.
Who made the decision? Closed committee?

The previous open discussion I was referring to was back when the course was expanded to 27 holes(along with the loss of 5 holes in the woods by hole 1. It's buried here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=311

As far as the Town meeting on May 12th, I'm actually just learning about it now too.

Mel, in answer to your question.
No committee meetings were held.
consensus was used to make the decision to expand.
We see little downside to this proposal.
We will be asking folks for their input, what would you like to see?
Thank you for asking

Looks like I need to clear my schedule on May 12th. (2 days before the MKDGC nonetheless)

Glad to see Greg pushing things to fruition. I'm all for helping Kevin and others finish J-Park.

I answered you in a PM. If I knew it was such a hot subject, I would of posted my reply on the open forum. How could you reach consensus if many didn't even know about it?
In a nutshell, I prefer a more democratic way for making important decisions.

My Company put up a portion of that money (thanks to John Ryan at Powmat). I hope the $1200 will get the upgrade project going, I would love to see new baskets at J and another 9 holes. Remember everyone, Discap is a 501(c)(3) so the donations are tax deductible and sometimes you can get a company match.

There has been casual discussion about the expansion for some time. Jasan has volunteered to raise funds and make the proposal to the town and asked for the clubs support by using our NFP status to solicit funds. Earl made a donation to the club and asked that it be used for basket upgrade.

Mel just curious what is the downside of expansion? Not really an important decision made by us. Just a no brainer. Local player wants upgrade baskets and expand J is willing to put in the time to do it through proper channels and was just seeking our support.
