pDGA LOLz

Postby veganray » Tue Dec 06, 2011 1:09 pm

Poor, pathetic pDGA. They enabled a promo code for 20% off online renewals today. Of course, its existence immediately permeated the series of tubes, and discount renewals came pouring in.

Though the code is valid, only a certain (as yet undefined) subset of folks has been bestowed by the org the privilege of utilizing it, and the org is starting to make calls telling people, "Sorry, but no soup for you!"

Another PR triumph from the brilliant Director of Marketing & Communications that brought you, "There was concern that (the presence of a group of youthful minority swimmers) would change the complexion of the club."

RENEW2012

I suggest you further disseminate this info; if enough people renew using it, they will have a harder time trying to take it all back.

Hmph, sounds like it kinda worked from a marketing standpoint. I wonder what the goal was, if they didn't want to encourage a bunch of people to renew early? I will still put off renewal until the very last minute next year, though.

The story: code was intended for lapsed members not current in 2011 to reup for 2012. pDGA f'ed up the coding (shocker) for the promo & made it work for all renewals. Word spread like wildfire through the innerwebz & TONS of folks renewed. pDGA is now calling them all & sticking it to 'em - no lube, no spit, nothing.

Gotta love those idiots.

Duesler doesn't work for the PDGA anymore, Ray. He left to do the DGPlanet.TV site.

i got the email with the code...i was a 2010 member and didn't renew for 2011. i was debating on renewing for 2012 because i'm getting an extra week of vacation at work, so more vacation than the wife has means i can take some time off to go play tournaments.

maybe i will just wait until 2013 to renew and bag it up to get a chance to play in the usdgc :lol:
