Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Member,

We are well into a new year for disc golf in Central Texas, the Spring weather is beautiful, and it is time once again to renew your membership with Waterloo Disc Golf Club. WDGC enjoyed some great successes this past year, but also had a setback when we lost Pease Park. Our successes included running our tenth Ice Bowl in February at Zilker Park; there were 135 players and the club raised $770 for the Capital Area Food Bank. We continued our roving monthly mini and our Spring & Summer Waterleagues at Zilker, plus added a short Fall League and then a Winter Night League. We also ran the annual Battle of Slaughter Creek at Circle C, The Wicked Thicket tournament at Manor, plus co-hosted the inaugural Met Center Open with Play It Again Sports. The 33rd Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic was a great success, raising $7,000 during the event. $6,000 was donated to the Austin Ronald McDonald House and $1,000 will be used on disc golf projects in Austin. We have also just started back up a weekly mini at Bartholomew on Saturdays. During the year, WDGC donated over $3,500 in sponsorship to various tournaments, including many here in Central Texas. On the “City” front, we successfully defended the course at Bartholomew. We fought all the way through the Master Planning process for the park, and at the end of it, we had an 18-hole disc golf course master-planned as a permanent part of the park. We also helped the South Austin Disc Club (SADA) with their successful restoration of the course at Mary Moore Searight. Unfortunately, the year ended on a sad note as the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD) announced it was pulling the course out at Pease Park at end of the year. We are still working and fighting to get a course back in there at Pease once the creek restoration work is done, but it will be a long process.

Meanwhile, we continue our partnership with PARD with big course improvement projects coming up in 2011 at Zilker and, we expect, Bartholomew. Most of the Zilker work has already been completed with the addition of the large limestone benches at the tee boxes plus the concrete tee boxes being added to the South Side. A little later in the year we hope to put in new tee signs. The Bart work, as discussed above, will have to wait until more planning is done and approved. We anticipate that 2011 will be another great year for the improvement of our local courses.

The club gained 15 new members this year for a total of 358 members at the end 2010. Joining the club and staying current is easier than ever with the continuation of signups and renewals through Disc Nation (www.discnation.com). Disc Nation is a huge sponsor of the club and every new member and every renewing member gets a $10 Disc Nation gift certificate in addition to the club membership stuff. The club’s goal for 2011 is to have over 400 members by the end of the year. If your member number is between 1 and 354, then you may be due for renewal. To check on your status just click on the Member List file, next to Uncle Sam on the Membership Page of the website. Next to your name will be “Current Through December 20xx” or a blank space. If the space is blank or if the “current through” year is 2010, then it is time for you to renew.

Annual renewals are $15 per person, regardless of your level of membership. However, you can also renew for multiple years, at a discounted rate, making it easier to keep your membership current longer. You can mail in a check for your renewal, or you can go to the Disc Nation website, click on “Tournament & Events”, click on “Waterloo Disc Golf Club Membership”, and renew online with a credit card (or do it at the Disc Nation store on Slaughter Lane).

1 Year Renewal $15
3 Year Renewal $40
5 Year Renewal $65
10 Year Renewal $125
Lifetime Renewal $300


In 2011, Waterloo Disc Golf Club will continue to meet with city and county representatives about developing more courses in Austin and Travis County and keeping and improving the existing courses. Regular course maintenance will be a priority in addition to running the Ice Bowl, 34th Waterloo Disc Golf Classic, other big tournaments, minis, a WaterLeague or three, and much, much more. All these things take a lot of work, so we really need your support: your time, your energy, and your renewal fees that allow Waterloo to fund its projects.

Waterloo Disc Golf Club will continue as a PDGA Affiliate Club in 2011. Any current club member that wishes to join the PDGA or renew their PDGA membership through the club will receive a $5 discount on those membership fees. It will also allow current club members to take the PDGA officials test at no cost and receive a 10% discount at Discovering The World, an online disc golf vendor (www.dtworld.com). Waterloo DGC has its own forum on the PDGA DISCussion board. It is located at the bottom of the main page but will be easy to find since it is almost the last of the alphabetically listed PDGA affiliate clubs.

If you are interested in renewing your PDGA membership through Waterloo, you can find the form on the Membership Page. Just download the form, fill it out, and mail it in with your Waterloo membership renewal. If the form up there is still the old 2010 form (hopefully not), then just email Joe Torrence at toerents @ yahoo.com and he'll send you one.

Checks or money orders for PDGA membership MUST be made payable to Waterloo Disc Golf Club and can be combined with your payment for Waterloo renewal fees. Please contact Joe Torrence by email at toerents @ yahoo.com or by phone at (512) 382-7566 for more information on renewing PDGA membership through the Waterloo Club. PLEASE DO NOT SEND US CHECKS PAYABLE TO THE PDGA.

For your club renewal, please make check or money order payable to Waterloo Disc Golf Club, and mail, along with this form, to:
WDGC
PO Box 33531
Austin, TX, 78764

For more information about renewing your club membership, you can call Joe Torrence at 382-7566 or Gordon Maxim-Kelley at (512) 858-1615. You can also email toerents @ yahoo.com or gordon @ ventbird.com, or look on our Facebook page or website: www.austindiscgolf.org.

If your address or phone number has changed recently, please include it with your payment.
