2009 Club Member Renewal

Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Member,

We are coming to the end of another great disc golf year in Central Texas. The Waterloo Club enjoyed a tremendous 2008 thanks to the support of disc golfers in the Austin area and throughout all of Texas. The club donated nearly $3,800 to various events, including many here in Central Texas. WDGC ran its eighth Ice Bowl in January at Zilker Park. There were 136 players and the club raised $500 and 215 pounds of food for the Capital Area Food Bank. The club re-started the traditional Saturday morning mini at Pease and ran it almost all year. Starting this month, we switch to a monthly mini on the first Saturday of each month, at a different course each month. The club also ran a weekly mini at Bartholomew while there was light in the evenings, and we continued the Spring & Summer Waterleagues at Zilker. The 31st Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic was a great success, raising $7,500 during the event. $6,250 was donated to the Austin Ronald McDonald House and $1,250 will be used on disc golf projects in Austin. The club also helped the Double R Disc Golf Club in Round Rock install cement tee boxes at the Wilco course, and we contributed some funds to the Temple Disc Golf Association for new baskets for their Lions Park course expansion.

Our big course improvement project coming up will be at Circle C. The course has just been pulled out and will be put back hopefully in just a few months, once the city and the club have gone in and done concrete tee pads, tee signs, benches, trash receptacles, clearing, mulching, and erosion control. It should be an awesome course when we get it put back in. How long it is out depends on how fast the club gets our portion of the work done, so keep an eye out for workdays and volunteer opportunities at Circle C, most likely starting in January 2009!

The club gained 40 new members this year for a total of 296 members at the end 2008. This was a great year for club membership, especially with the introduction 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 all the club membership stuff. The club’s goal for 2009 is to have over 350 members by the end of the year and to have even more of its older members renew their memberships. If your member number is between 1 and 285, then you may be due for renewal. To check on your status just 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 2008, then it is time for you to renew. The list is first in Member Number order; below that it is re-arranged into Member Name order (listed by last name). So if you aren’t sure of your member number, you can easily find your name in the second list.

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, www.discnation.com, 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 2009, 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, 32nd 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 2009. 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.

The PDGA membership forms must be submitted in bulk. If you are interested in renewing your PDGA membership through Waterloo, complete the attached PDGA membership form or go to the club’s website (www.austindiscgolf.org) 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 forms can be submitted at the Ice Bowl at Zilker Park on January 31st or mailed to the club’s PO Box. There will be a couple of more chances to renew your PDGA membership in person through the club in January and February at the Monthly Minis. Checks or money orders for PDGA membership will need to be made payable to Waterloo Disc Golf Club and can be combined with your payment for Waterloo renewal fees. Please contact Laura Hovey, by email at hoveychick @ yahoo.com, or by phone at (512) 323-2823 for more information on renewing PDGA membership through the Waterloo Club. DO NOT SEND CHECKS PAYABLE TO 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 Laura Hovey at 323-2823, Gordon Maxim-Kelley at (512) 858-0119, or Lou Moreno at 389-1853. You can also email the club at gordon @ ventbird.com or check out our website: www.austindiscgolf.org.

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


Thank you for your support of Waterloo Disc Golf Club!

Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Members & Texas Disc Golfers,

We hope you have gotten a chance to play the newly re-opened Circle C Disc Golf Course. If not, hopefully you can make it out there soon. We are so happy and very proud of this project! It was a great partnership with the Austin Parks & Recreation Department and our goal is to take this model and move it around to the other courses to make them better too. Concrete tee boxes, fantastic tee signs, trails, places to sit, erosion controls, trash cans, the kinds of things that make a course a joy to play. As Waterloo Club members you deserve to feel proud too; you all helped make this happen through your support of the club.

Part of the club’s contribution was the tee signs. These are top-of-the-line signs, with heavy duty metal frames; and there are signs for each tee box. Many of the holes have a long tee and a short tee, and both boxes have signs (not just one sign for the hole). This is especially helpful when the tees are further apart from each other. However, these signs were very expensive and the club needs to do a lot of fundraising to pay them off. New member dues and member renewals go a long way towards raising money for the club. If you are not already current, please consider renewing at this time. Also, we really need the help of our members in recruiting new players to the club.

Annual renewals are $15 per person, regardless of your level of membership. However, you can renew for more than one year at a time at a discounted rate, even to the point of a lifetime membership.

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

New Memberships are either $20 for Player Member or $40 for Supporting Member.

And all new members and renewing members also receive a $10 gift certificate from Disc Nation, a huge supporter of the club.

It is very easy to renew or join. You can do it either by sending payment directly to the club, or you can do it online through the Disc Nation website, www.discnation.com. (under tournaments & events – it may look like that is just for joining, but if you choose “buy” and then “select membership type” it will bring up all the renewal options). A direct link to the page is: www.discnation.com/pro...ctid=15890

You can also join or renew in person at any of our events.
1) The Battle of Slaughter Creek - PDGA Tournament at Circle C, June 13th – 14th
2) July’s “1st Saturday” Mini, Saturday morning, July 4th, Pease Park Disc Golf Course
June 13th – 14th
3) Or at the weekly Bart mini on Tuesdays or the weekly Zilker league on Thursdays

To join or renew by mail, please make check or money order payable to Waterloo Disc Golf Club, and mail to: WDGC, PO Box 33531, Austin, TX, 78764. New member forms can be downloaded from the club’s website, www.austindiscgolf.org; in the Membership section. If you aren’t sure of your membership status, you can go to this same section and look at the current Member List. It is sorted by both Member Number and then below that by Member Last Name.

For more information about joining or renewing your membership, you can call Laura Hovey at 323-2823 or Gordon Maxim-Kelley at (512) 858-1615. You can also email the club at gordon @ ventbird.com.

Thank you for your support of Waterloo Disc Golf Club!
