40th Waterloo Sponsorship Needed

Saturday, August 05, 2017 (13:55:58) Waterloo Event
With the 40th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic coming up in just over a couple of months (Oct 20-22, 2017), it is time to start asking for your support as a sponsor. Last year the tournament raised $9,100 for the Austin Ronald McDonald House, and that pushed us to a grand total of just over $117,000 in cash for the charity over the years. We can’t do this kind of fundraising without a LOT of help from our sponsors.

In the tournament's discussion thread on this site, in the Community Forums / Current Events section, are two posts (40th Waterloo Discussion Thread). One is our more complete sponsorship request letter. It is great for people or companies who aren’t familiar with the club, the tournament, and the charity. The other is for those who already know what we are about, much more basic; plus it has a part to fill out that helps us keep track of who is donating what, and at what sponsorship level.

You can also email us for copies of these letters, we can send them as .pdf files or Microsoft Word files, just send us a note at waterloodgc@gmail.com.

Will you please help support this historic tournament and this wonderful charity?

Also, please take these letters around to any local businesses you think might be willing to donate. Cash, merchandise, gift cards, swag, it ALL helps! Don’t be shy about asking, just talk about the good the charity does and the hundreds of people who will be at the event, and ask if they can contribute. The worst anyone can do is say “no”.

Thank you for your help and support!

Thursday, January 05, 2017 (05:32:53) Waterloo Event
Come join us on our traditional "Saturday-before-the-Super-Bowl" on February 4th for Waterloo Disc Golf Club’s 17th Annual Ice Bowl at Zilker Park Disc Golf Course.

Every year, clubs and people from around the world gather together to help fight hunger within their communities and to have a day of fun playing disc golf no matter what the weather. We will be raising money and food for the Central Texas Food Bank at our Ice Bowl.

The rules of the Ice Bowl are simple:
-Ice Bowl will be never be cancelled
-No wimps or whiners allowed
-There’s no excuse for not attending!

The entry fee is $15 (you get $2 back if you bring 3 cans of non-perishable food).
For that, you will receive either:
Ice Bowl T-Shirt – or – DX Ice Bowl Disc & set of Little Flyer “Nesting Minis”
Supplies are limited – first come first choice.
We will have long sleeve shirts and higher quality discs available for extra cost.

We will also have CTP contests, a raffle & some other fun stuff. The whole idea is to HAVE A GREAT TIME while helping others out who really need it.

Online pre-registration will be available starting at 9:00 am on Friday morning, Jan. 6th through one of the national Ice Bowl sponsors: DGU (Disc Golf United). Here is the link: 17th Waterloo Ice Bowl Registration. This site also has all the info in the ‘details’ section.

Father Dave McC-Note Challenge

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 (22:57:56) Waterloo Event
We had 126 Father Dave McC-Note Challengers in 2016 at this year's 39th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic, and they added over $3,800 to the fundraising.

We began accepting Father Dave McC-Note Challengers for the 40th Waterloo in 2017 at this year’s Waterloo. 12 people signed up during the tournament and a couple of more have paid since then. They are:
Khali Mendoza
Laura Hovey
John Hovey
Larry Kruse
Kirk Lavallee
Jan Baumgardner
James McNair
Stevo Barnes
Richard Ahlgrim
Kevin Phulman
Mark Penniman
Scot Estep
Todd Moore
Charles Chapman

Regular registration won’t open up until closer to the tournament and once it does entries will pour in. Don’t take a chance on missing out, take the 2017 Father Dave McC-Note Challenge now.

The way it works is this: send the Waterloo Club a check or money order for $100 now. Your spot in the tournament is guaranteed. When fees for the different divisions are set, we will deduct from your $100:

your entry fee
ace pot
ring-of-fire
non-active pdga fee (if applicable)

All the money left goes directly to the fundraising.

To clarify something that has come up occasionally: this money saves “your” spot, not “a” spot. Once the tournament fills up and there is a waitlist, if you have to cancel you can’t just give your spot to someone else. As with any cancellation, the spot goes to the next person on the waitlist. If you do have to cancel, you will receive a refund of everything except what would have gone to the fundraising (and that money will still be added to the donation).

Don’t wait too long and end up missing out on this wonderful event. Send in your money now and you won’t have to worry about it filling up without you.

Send your check or money order, payable to WDGC, to:
WDGC
PO Box 33531
Austin, TX 78764

Please include your division, full name, email and/or phone number, and pdga number (if you have one).


Waterloooooooooooooooooooooo

39th Waterloo Fundraising

Wednesday, December 14, 2016 (22:51:33) Waterloo Event
The fundraising total is in, we raised $9,100 for the Austin Ronald McDonald House (RMH) at the 39th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic this year!!! Plus we collected a large box of canned food, household goods, etc for the families there, and 13 gallon-jugs of aluminum can tabs.

That brings our grand cash total donated to RMH up to $117,043 in cash, 160 gallon-jugs of can tabs, and lots and lots of boxes of food, goods, and toys since the tournament became a charity event back in 1998, the 21st Annual Waterloo DG Classic. WOW!

Thank you to all our sponsors, players, and staff all these years for making this amazing tournament better and better!

The other, smaller part of our fundraising from the event will go towards course improvement projects at Austin area courses. This year that amount raised came to $3,000.

Looking forward to the 40th Waterloo DG Classic in 2017, the dates will be the usual 3rd weekend in October: Oct. 20-22, 2017. We plan on being back at the Hancock Golf Course again, this has been an amazing venue for the event and the past four years there have been so much fun and so very successful!
