The AGM is a great opportunity to hear what has happened in disc golf around Australia in the past year and what is coming up in the year ahead. Following the official parts of the meeting the floor will be open for general discussion. You can bring items up at the meeting or send our board secretary Emilie Cameron an email with any agenda items you’d like added.
Australian Disc Golf received the very pleasing news last week that Michael Canci was to be the 2019 recipient of AFDA‘s Rob Hancock award. One of only a small number of disc golfers to do so. A long-standing selfless servant of flying disc sports who is currently applying his thoroughness to keeping the Perth Disc Golf Club administratively in line, Mick is just the sort of community minded individual who deserves such an award. Well done Mick.
