Mike is no bogeyman. I've played many rounds with Mike and have known him since 2005 and he has done a ton of work for the promotion of Disc Golf and Charity work. As well as running a very successful point series in Colorado. He's a good guy. He had his booth set up at the 2011 CO State Championships and was giving away a case for an ace of this stuff.
Can you fault the guy for trying to make some money, selling products to a community he loves being a part of and giving him the financial freedoms we all want? I can't. Personally I'll never buy this product, I don't see the point in taking these supplements. You can achieve what these supplements claim do do with pure simple diet and exercise. But in a world of faster, quicker, NOW! if you have the drive to jump on board and sell these products to the sheeple, do it!
I will agree though, I find it a conflict of interest that a Member of the Board is benefiting monetarily from this new found sponsorship of the PDGA.
I want to first apologize for the typo in the article, which has now been
corrected on our website, the ID number should read 11019992. The AdvoCare
representative is Mike Kalous PDGA #17680. He can be reached directly at
970-456-8591, this is his personal cell phone number.
Perhaps I should have written the article differently. I mentioned Avery
Jenkins, because he put me in contact with Mike for this discount and I
wanted to make sure he was thanked for the introduction and that is all.
This is merely a discount I want to offer to our members. I am the new
membership manager for the PDGA and in doing research of other sports
organizations they offer discounts to various companies/stores/restaurants
as a benefit to being a member of their organization.
I am trying to find ways for our members to get as many benefits possible
for their membership fees. This is merely a discount (like offering someone
a coupon for a store). If you have any suggestions for member benefits or
know of any companies/stores/restaurants that might be interested in
offering a discount to our members, please let me know.
I hope I have answered your questions. Please let me know if you need
anything further. I also encourage you to contact Mike directly. Thank you.
Wishing you a bogey free day,
PDGA Memberships Manager

Same issue, different enigmatic bogeyman…
