SEARIGHT DISC GOLF COURSE IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!!!!!

WOOHOO!!!

I received this just a little while ago from SADA...




No, this is not an early April Fool's joke - as of an hour ago, all baskets were assembled and installed.

SEARIGHT DISC GOLF COURSE IS OFFICIALLY OPEN!!!!!

I want to thank John Paul from the City and the volunteers that took time out on their Wednesday workday to get these baskets up in record time today: Mike "Meteor Mike" Schulgen, Bert Benavides, Miguel Guerrero, Jeremy "Smoke" Sanchez, Kenny G, and I'm sure a handful of others. Thanks guys!

In addition, I must thank the numerous volunteers that have come out all the workdays to make this happen, with notable thanks to Scott Allen, James Gonzales, Aaron Stair, Del Stair, and Tom Peirce for coming out for all the workdays, assisting with the necessary equipment and tools, and working hand in hand with City workers to make the workdays smooth-sailing and productive.

They certainly are not alone - there are many, many more people that gave their sweat and blood for this project - you all know who you are and you are oh-so appreciated!

Lastly, thanks to Mike Olse, Gene Faulk, Rosie Weaver, and the other City and APF team members that worked closely with SADA throughout the renovations. Thanks to Waterloo and DiscNation for continuing to support the project financially, but just as important, for inspiring more folks to come out for the workdays.

SADA will continue to work with the City and the Austin Parks Foundation to maintain the park and help with repairs. The club is working on holding a benefit tournament in the next month or so, so please keep that in mind so you can help us continue to pay this forward, for this park and all the other disc golf parks in the City.

Thank you everyone!!!!! See you on the course!

We know it is last minute, but the Waterloo Club and SADA would really like to help out at TWC with some “Lady Lounges” for all the women golfers. These are spots on the course where the players can stop to get some refreshments and enjoy some of our local hospitality. It is a great way to let all the women know that they have the support of the entire disc golf community.

We’ve got the pop-ups, coolers, tables, etc, but we need some volunteers to run the stations. We want to have at least one, but it would be great if we could get enough people to do two or even three stations.

The tournament is this weekend so there is not much time left. Please help Waterloo and SADA help our women!

If you can help out with this great project, please contact Josh Rippie or Stevo Barnes.

Josh Rippie: 653-9338

Stevo Barnes: 750-2928


Thanks!!!

Info about a cool event from Disc Nation...



Subject: Austin Disc Golfers - Participate in the World's 1st Celebrity Disc Golf Event this Saturday!

Disc Nation and Beyond the Lights are proud to announce the World's 1st Celebrity Disc Golf Event this Saturday at the Lost Pines Hyatt in Bastrop, TX. Join members of the cast and crew of TV's Friday Night Lights, as well as other celebrities, for an 18-hole Disc Golf event on the Colorado river at the beautiful Lost Pines Hyatt Resort.

Mike Olse generously donated his time to design an super-fun and beginner-friendly course for the event. The focus of this event is FUN and the folks at Beyond the Lights are enthusiastic about disc golf, but most are not serious players, so we've designed this event to appeal to beginners. Registration is $20 per person and each player will receive an event t-shirt, custom-stamped golf disc, entry into a raffle featuring prizes that include a basket from the event, a Disc Nation gift certificate, a free entry into the Windy Hill Putting Challenge, and more. The event is comprised of one round of 18 holes and there will be no payout or prizes based on performance. Of course, the proceeds from this event go to the Beyond the Lights charity which raises money to help fund research on spinal cord injuries.

This is a perfect event for anyone who wants the rare opportunity to play disc golf with celebrities, wants to turn a new player onto the sport we all love, or who simply wants to play a very unique event on the newest course in the Austin-area. Celebrities scheduled to play in this event include Friday Night Lights' Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland, and King of the Hill's Johnny Hardwick. We're expecting additional celebrities as well, and you just never know who will show up at a cool Austin-area event like this!

To register: www.austincommunityfou...iser_id=76
General Information About This Event: www.beyondthelights.org/v2/ (Click on the Disc Golf Link)

If you are interested then register as soon as possible to guarantee your spot in this one-of-a-kind event! We will accept registrations the day of the event, space permitting.

For additional information please contact Disc Nation at 512-280-1115 or customerservice @ discnation.com.

We Hope to see you there!!

Your Friends at Disc Nation

COTO is this weekend! 20th Annual Capital of Texas Open

The Waterloo Club no longer runs this event - and hasn’t for several years - but we do always set up a booth at Pease Park and hold a membership drive and some kind of fun, fundraising event (Thanks Team Justice!).

This year the fun event is a putting contest, but not just any putting contest; this time it is a Jump-Putt competition! Very Happy

We will also be giving away door prizes for our current club members plus anyone who joins the club during the weekend (or renews their membership). So be sure to come by the Waterloo Club tent to get your ticket. We’ll be there at Pease all day Saturday and Sunday.

This is a great chance to join the club at a discounted price: just $10 for a Player Membership (normally $20) or just $25 for a Supporting Membership (normally $40).

Re: Public Meeting, Bartholomew Park, Wed.evening, June 23rd

Post Posted: Tue Jun 22, 2010 5:09 pm

Just a reminder that tomorrow evening, Wednesday June 23rd, there is a very important Public Meeting about the future of Bartholomew Park. Disc golfers NEED to attend this meeting to voice support for keeping a disc golf course in Bartholomew.

The situation is not as dire as at Pease. They have not threatened to pull the course out. HOWEVER, if disc golf is not seen as a need or desire of the park users and residents, then it is likely it won’t remain a feature of the park.

We need you to show up at this meeting and say that disc golf is an appropriate activity and a desired activity for the park.

It would be especially helpful for disc golfers who live in one of the neighborhoods near the park to show up and voice your support (or if you have friends who live near there, bring them).

Re: Zilker Park Course Major Improvements

Post Posted: Mon Oct 25, 2010 10:47 am

Waterloo Disc Golf Club is partnering with the Austin Parks & Recreation Department to make some long overdue, much needed improvements to the disc golf course at Zilker Park.

These include major improvements such as concrete tee pads on the south 9 holes and limestone benches on all the holes (similar to Circle C & Searight). These also include minor improvements like the trails/paths, and likely further down the road a ways tee signs for the whole course.

The Waterloo Club has already committed $1500 of club funds to the project and we’ve raised another $500 from individuals. We’ll also be having some volunteer events for working on the course that will be announced once they are scheduled. The city will be providing a lot of the labor and a lot of the equipment and supplies, plus some funding as well.

What the club needs now are some additional funds for the project. The more money we can raise, the more work we can do and the quicker we can do it.

To donate in person, come by the Thursday evening Zilker League this Thursday (Oct. 28th) or the Thursday after that (Nov 4th) – we are playing twice around the south side, so just look for Gordon or Phil Haik; or you can do it at the Club’s Monthly Mini in November (date & course TBA).

You can also mail a check or money order to the club: WDGC, PO Box 33531, Austin, TX, 78764 (payable to WDGC or Waterloo Disc Golf Club).

Thank you very much for your help and support as we continue to try and bring our existing courses up to excellent condition!

You can also donate in person at Disc Nation, and…

Disc Nation will MATCH every donation that is made in their store. They did the same thing for the Searight renovations and it made a big difference. Thanks Damon! Thanks Disc Nation!!!

Re: Other Disc Golf & Park Stuff

With all the frustrating events surrounding disc golf here in Austin lately, it is nice to finally have some good news.

The improvements to the Zilker course have begun!!!

The large limestone benches have already been installed on all 18 holes, and the new concrete tee boxes on the south side have been framed up and should be done pretty soon.

Fresh mulch will be put out this Saturday morning (9 am – 1 pm) during the club’s workday, and more work is still ahead with stuff like paths, erosion controls, and other Circle C / Searight type features.

Later in the year, we hope to put in new tee signs. This will mark the first time there have been signs at the Zilker course since the late 80s or early 90s.

The work is being done through a partnership between the club and the Austin Parks & Rec. Dept. The has committed over $2000 to this project and the more we can raise, the sooner we can get it all done. The city is spending a lot on this course as well, through materials, equipment, and labor.

If you would like to make a donation to the project, you can mail it to the club at WDGC, PO Box 33531, Austin, TX, 78746 or you can donate in person at the Disc Nation store at 1218 W. Slaughter Lane (and if you do, they will match that donation dollar for dollar – thanks Disc Nation!). You can also do it in person at the club’s Ice Bowl at Zilker on February 5th or at any of the club’s other minis and events.

If we end up with more than we need for Zilker, we’ll spend the rest on Bartholomew Very Happy

Thanks!
Waterloo Disc Golf Club
