Re: Other Disc Golf & Park Stuff

Post Posted: Sun Mar 09, 2014 2:59 pm

I’m very sorry to say that we have suffered two recent losses to our disc golf family last week.

On Saturday March 1st, Lance Thompson lost his battle with cancer, he had been fighting it for the past year and a half. People are still making posts on his Facebook page to say goodbye. His wife Nora is planning a celebration of his life later this month or early in April. Here is a link to his obituary in today’s Statesman: www.legacy.com/obituar...=170095828


The day before that, Friday February 28th, Barry Norman lost his battle with cancer too. Barry had been fighting Multiple Myeloma for a number of years, and his wife Holly said that getting out to play disc golf was the one thing he could still do that he really enjoyed. She said his weekly play at the Waterloo League was a true blessing for the both of them. In fact, his last round of disc golf was the final week of our Spring 2013 League. He had undergone radiation treatment on his left arm, but still wanted to come out and get his final score in. Unfortunately, right at the end of the round his left arm snapped as he threw a drive (he threw right handed, but the torque/movement was just too much for his weakened left arm). His cancer did go into remission shortly after that, but came back with a vengeance in December. There won’t be a service anytime soon, but Holly said they’ll be having a celebration of his life likely sometime in May.


I’ll send out more about services/celebrations as I get the details.

Both Lance and Barry were great guys and I will miss them. Please keep their families and friends in your heart.

With a Heavy Sigh,
Gordon

Just a reminder about the work day today at the "Cactus Patch" disc golf course at Crosspointe Church, 5703 McNeil Dr, Austin, TX 78729.

It started this morning and will be going all day. There will be a pizza lunch provided for the volunteers.


There is a "Cactus Patch" work day scheduled THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST, all day. COME HELP!!

Nick Arden will bring his small tree/landscaping crew out there and start about 8 am.

Please bring all the tools you may need to clean a course: gloves, glasses, trimmers, loppers, rakes, mowers, etc. Anything to help.

There is MUCH WORK to be done out there. Lots of trash removal, lots of flight lines to be cleared, etc. So if you are in the area and can help for any amount of time, please do so.
~ help with Phase One.. so we can move towards improving baskets, tee boxes, etc.

The Crosspointe Church wants this disc golf course back into shape for the community and we want to help.

Address: 5703 McNeil Dr, Austin, TX 78729

All day, starting around 8 am.

Thanks!

Just a reminder that Waterloo’s normal Saturday morning Bart mini is cancelled this week (Sat. Sep. 21st), so come on out to Moody’s for a fun day of disc golf and help us raise funds for the 36th Waterloo DG Classic at Hancock Golf Course.

Remember, even if it is rainy this week or even on Saturday, the land out there is very sandy so it never turns into a mud-fest. It is a great place to play when wet.


The mini is also the perfect opportunity to get warmed up for the big HOTT Finale: Oktoberfest, Oct 5th & 6th at Moody’s. Here is a link to that event’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/event...730837554/


Thanks!

Tomorrow (Sat. Aug 10th) is our first fundraiser mini for the 36th Waterloo Disc Golf Classic. We’ve got a BIG course reservation fee this year to have it at Hancock Golf Course, so please come on out and help us raise some money while having a great time at a wonderful facility.

Sign up begins at 8:30 am, round 1 tees at 9:30 am

Park has done a lot of work on the Hill course, removing rock and cactus, and he has been busy all week getting both courses mowed (needed thanks to all the unexpected July rains Very Happy ). We’ll play the Hill in the morning, and the Shire in the afternoon.

We’ll have a basic lunch for sale (sausage wraps, potato salad, and beans), but there are also a number of food options close by on 290 in downtown Dripping Springs.

The PGA Championship is in full swing and Saturday’s round will be on the big screen TV in the clubhouse; plus the pool table, ping pong table, pro shop and blessed air conditioning!

Or bring your mountain bike and ride the trails at Twin Parks.

Come shoot for a big ace pot bonus. If there is an ace, Waterloo will add $150 to the ace pot!

Come out Saturday morning OR come out tonight to play the Night Golf mini that Meteor Mike and Disc Nation run out there, camp out, and wake up to play the Waterloo mini on Saturday. The night round starts at dusk.

And Thank You to the folks at league last night that started off our raffle by purchasing about $40 - $50 worth of tickets. We’ll have a bunch of great prizes to give away. You do NOT need to be present to win, so if you can’t play the mini, feel free to drop by any time during the day to purchase some tickets.

Finally, don’t forget that the Bart mini is cancelled tomorrow, it will resume next Saturday, August 17th, at its new time of 9:00 am.

Thanks,
Waterloo Disc Golf Club

We had a great workday at Bartholomew last Saturday! There were disc golfers and several people from the Windsor Park Neighborhood Association plus Bill Stout from Austin Parks Foundation (APF) plus a last-minute influx of energetic youth from the UT Lions Club Smile From the disc golf community: Marc Lopez, Brian Litke, Alex Downs and 3 of his kids (Gabriel, Ethan, and Alexis), John Allen Browder, and Gordon Maxim-Kelley. There are pictures on the Waterloo Club’s Facebook Page.


There is another workday at Bartholomew coming up this Saturday, May 4 (10am-1pm), to cut bamboo along holes 1 and 2. Join REI and APF to cut down bamboo that is attempting to regrow after a winter cutting. Volunteers will be working in the Far East section of Bartholomew Park, parallel to Waterbrook Drive.

The Waterloo Club’s weekly mini at Bartholomew Park on Saturday, April 27th is being delayed by 1 hour. It will begin at 11 am (instead of 10 am).

If you are going to play the mini, we hope you will come down to the park early, at 9 am, to help with the neighborhood’s mulching project. You can then head over for the mini at 11 am.

The mulching will be from 9 am – 12:30 pm and we’d love for you to help the whole time, but if you can’t be there the whole morning, please come help for as long as you can.

Also, please help us pass the word along to folks who regularly play that mini, especially those that don’t have email or aren’t on Facebook (or at least don’t check them often).

Thanks!
Waterloo Disc Golf Club
