Trade/Sell Your New and Used Discs (Swap Meet at the Meadow)

Postby Rasta Style » Sat Jun 02, 2007 3:29 pm

Who's open to the idea of having a disc swap meet at the Meadow monthly?  

A portion of the proceeds could go towards the club for the up coming McClaren course.

We could each rent a space and share discs we don't, won't or can't throw with each other.   And, of course snacks, beverages and an occasional safety meeting here and there would make things even more fun.

Just a thought...

warmest regards,

Geo Quinn

"Baby Got Back" is by Sir Mix-A-Lot, off  of his 1992 album "Mack Daddy" - by the time Mix was knocking down the doors of Mtv with his big-booty shout-out, Luke Skywalker and Crew's "Me So Horny" had been played out for years.

Lots of good stuff on that album, it's a classic. Should be noted that he gets through the whole album without once referring to women as "ho's".

Swap meet sounds fine by me, as long as you know your discs better than you know your classic rap. (insert emoticon of choice here)

Oops! You are correct... Swap Meet Date? Suggestions??

Postby Rasta Style » Sat Jun 02, 2007 11:26 pm

Thanks for the rap history correction.  I bow down to your superior knowledge and mad skillz.  

Let's set a date for the Disc Swap Meet.

Saturday or Sunday 3rd weekend of June?

What do you think?

Geo

p.s.  Still feeling the call for big booty music hits.  Hit me with your favorites...

I think it will be most successful if we can get loads of people who have discs from all over to show up and swap. Should you aim to make it huge on the first try? Probably not. Let's see who else gets into this and hops on board. I'm no good for most weekends, so don't take my date requests into account.

I've still got some Star Wraiths I'd love to get rid of, though...

Five classic albums you should have, in order:

--> Run-DMC, "Run DMC"
--> Eric B. & Rakim, "Paid in Full"
--> Paris, "The Devil Made Me Do It"
--> Mos Def, "Black on Both Sides"
--> Schoolly D, "The Best of Schoolly D"

Not necessarily "big booty" but absolute classic hip-hop. You can read my list of top 10 cheesiest rap intros of all time, with samples, at:

Starting small is a building is good...

Postby Rasta Style » Thu Jun 07, 2007 11:44 pm

I agree that starting small and building would lead to greater overall success.

What if we had 2 swap meets a month:

Sunday after League play from 10:30 to 2:30 or so
Tues before Doubles say from 4:30 to 5:45?

Would it be more feasible to rent out a 5x5 space for only   $5.00 or
people donate a $.50 or a $1.00 of every disc sold to the club for continued growth of disc golf locally?

Everyone who reads this thread please chime in with your thoughts on the suggestions.  Thanks!

This may be a dumb question but why do we have to rent out booths?

Would there be a problem with a no-fee system?

An Excellent Question...

Postby Rasta Style » Fri Jun 08, 2007 12:30 pm

I firmly believe this is an excellent opportunity to create additional funds for needed items such as discs and portable baskets for school programs.

It's been my experience that people value events more when there's an investment required for participation.  More people take an active part and a greater sense of community is developed too.

Besides, almost everyone can afford to donate $5.00 for space or $.50 or a $1.00 for each disc sold to ongoing club community outreach programs right?

Thanks for the excellent question!

Warmest regards,

Geo
