2010 Waterloo Club & PDGA Renewals

Post Posted: Wed Dec 16, 2009 4:35 pm

December 16, 2009

Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Member,

We are coming to the end of another great disc golf year in Central Texas. The Waterloo Club (WDGC) enjoyed a tremendous 2009 thanks to the support of disc golfers in the Austin area and throughout all of Texas. We donated nearly $3,200 in sponsorship to various tournaments, including many here in Central Texas. We ran our tenth Ice Bowl in February at Zilker Park; there were 185 players and the club raised $750 and 359 pounds of food for the Capital Area Food Bank. WDGC ran a monthly mini at a different course each month. We also ran a weekly mini at Bartholomew for much of the year while there was light in the evenings, and we continued the Spring & Summer Waterleagues at Zilker. The 32nd Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic was a great success, raising $8,100 during the event. $6,525 was donated to the Austin Ronald McDonald House and $1,525 will be used on disc golf projects in Austin. The course improvements at Circle C were completed during the Spring and were a huge success. Thanks to everyone who donated their time and manual labor to the effort. It is now one of the premier courses in the area. Immediately after the course was re-opened the club held the first PDGA sanctioned tournament at Circle C in many, many years: The Battle of Slaughter Creek. Look for this to become an annual tradition. The new course at Manor also came online in 2009, This was a welcome addition for those players looking for a longer, more challenging course. Another new course, The Met Center opened late in the year. This great new course was designed by Waterloo Board Member Mike Olse and it is on private land out near Hwy 183 & Burleson.

Our big course improvement project coming up will be at Mary Moore Searight. The renovation is in partnership with South Austin Disc Association, Austin Parks Foundation, and the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Dept. We are going to give Searight the “Circle C” treatment. The course has just been pulled out and will be only nine holes while the other half of the course is reworked. Then the new nine will be opened and the second half will be completed. Sadly, we have played SeaWrong for the last time, as the concrete tee boxes and other improvements will no longer allow the flexibility to set up the course backwards. However, it should be an awesome course when we get it put back in. How long it is out depends on how fast the disc golf community gets our portion of the work done, so keep an eye out for workdays and volunteer opportunities at Searight, most likely starting in January 2010! Also, our goal following Searight is to immediately start work on Bartholomew. We anticipate that 2010 will be another great year for the improvement of our local courses.

The club gained 47 new members this year for a total of 343 members at the end 2009. This was a great year for club membership, especially with the continuation of signups and renewals through Disc Nation ( 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 2010 is to have over 400 members by the end of the year. If your member number is between 1 and 331, then you may be due for renewal. To check on your status just click here to go to the Member List file 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 2009, 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,, and renew online with a credit card (or do it the next time you are shopping 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 2010, Waterloo Disc Golf Club will continue to meet with city and county representatives about developing more courses in Austin and Travis County and making improvements to the existing courses. Regular course maintenance will be a priority in addition to running the Ice Bowl, 33rd Waterloo Disc Golf Classic, minis, a Waterloo league or two 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 2010. 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 ( 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.

The PDGA membership forms no longer have to be submitted in bulk, but it sure helps us out to submit them in batches. If you are interested in renewing your PDGA membership through Waterloo, complete the attached PDGA membership form or go to the club’s website ( and 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.

The first batch of renewals will be sent to the PDGA the first week of January. The PDGA membership form also can be submitted at the Ice Bowl at Zilker Park on February 6th or at any of our other events in January and February. 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.
