Its Election Time 

Tuesday, November 8, 2011  by mcmanus

 

That's right NEFA members, its time to get the vote out for the NEFA Board members as well as your state representatives.  As an added convenience this year, the NEFA Board of Directors has provided for online voting right here on NEFA.com.  Check out the link to the thread here:   

The board is also reaching out to members who do not frequent the nefa discussion forums by facilitating their vote via an e-mail link!!  Remember, you MUST be a NEFA member to vote....faudulent voting will be a punishable offense via disc firing squad of top NEFA pros, so please be honest, vote your conscience and no funny business!

A big THANK YOU goes out to the NEFA Board of Directors for bringing the voting mechanisms up to speed for our members.  Best of luck to all the candidates who have competition!

White October 

Tuesday, November 1, 2011  by mcmanus

As snow blanketed much of New England from the surprising Nor'easter  this past weekend, I'm sure many were asking themselves "hmmm....halloween party or skiing?"  Living on Cape Cod, I truly cannot begin to empathize with my fellow discgolfers who happen to live in the snowbelt areas around central Mass, CT, VT, NH and ME.  Yes, once again, Cape Cod and SE Mass/coastal areas were spared for the most part from the onslaught, so if you're looking for a snow-free round, c'mon out to the coastal courses.  For those who got hit hard, I guess ribbon & yax trax season came early this year.   Here's hoping the warmish temps this week will make quick work of old man winter's premature dumping and Fall disc golf can resume under relatively normal conditions.

As usual at this point in my blog, I implore you to send me some stories....new courses underway, erotic chainsaw stories, clever ideas, whatever comes to mind, my door is always open to new ideas.  More to come soon!

"IMHO" 

Monday, October 17, 2011  by mcmanus

 

 

We've all used some type of ackronym to describe our ideas and opinions online, ranging from "IMO" and "IMHO", to "just my .02"  and perhaps a few more choice phrases.  Whether its concerns, feedback, critiques, complaints, rants, diatribes or manifestos, the need to have one's voice heard is a basic human desire.  Some truly great ideas come from this desire to be heard while other times it can lead to disagreements, arguments and the occasional name calling.   Regardless of the outcome, its a necessary part of effective communication and whether it is delivered with tact or abrasive uncut honesty, the inevitable outcome is a renewed perspective on the issue at hand and this often translates into fantastic ideas!

So do not despair if your idea gets barraged with terd bombs because the post has a missing comma or contains a run on sentence or some other poster just thinks it plain ole sucks...you bring up a valid point and you deserve an answer or explanation at the very least.  So, lets strive for some good communication because I guarantee, it will result in the generation of good ideas!

Hey!, speaking of ideas....I'm wide open to any and all you have for the nefa blog...otherwise you'll continue to read life lesson drivel like this from now on, so bring it...please.
