Default Re: Club Membership

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. Just open the Member List file on the Membership Page of the website (or just click here: http://www.austindiscgolf.org/docs/m...ite_12-08.htm) and find your name/number. 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.

Please contact Laura Hovey, by email at [email protected], or by phone at (512) 323-2823 for more information on renewing PDGA membership through the Waterloo Club.

Default 2010 Waterloo Club and PDGA Renewals

Dear Waterloo Club Member,

By now you have probably received this information in the mail. If not, it may mean that we no longer have your current mailing address (or maybe the post office returned something to us that it should not have). If you don’t get the letter in the mail by the end of this week, please email us your address - or send it in with your renewal.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

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 (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 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 http://www.austindiscgolf.org/index....=Content&pid=2. 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.

Default 2012 Club Renewals

Ok, we know it is early June (instead of early January), but we are finally getting our 2012 Member Renewal Letter out! Better late than never? Anyway, we hope you can renew your membership and we’ll try to do a much better job of getting this out on time in 2013. You can renew in person this Saturday, June 9th, at the Roy G. Guerrero Grand Opening or this Sunday the 10th at the first mini at Roy G. (more details on the mini will be sent out soon, or check the club’s facebook or web page).

Everyone who renews for 2012 will receive a $10 Gift Certificate from Disc Nation!




June 6, 2012


Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Member,

We are well into a new year for disc golf in Central Texas, the spring weather was beautiful and we are headed into the long, hot summer. We are very late in getting our renewal information out, but here it is. If you aren’t yet current on your 2012 club membership, now is the time to do it. WDGC enjoyed some great successes this past year, but the biggest is just now coming to fruition: the Grand Opening of the new disc golf course at Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Park on June 9, 2012. It took a lot of hard work and lobbying to get the course approved, and then even more work getting it ready for play. This will be a premier course that we can all be proud of!

Other successes in 2011 included:
• Ice Bowl at Zilker Park (our 11th); 133 players; $750 raised for Capital Area Food Bank
• Battle of Slaughter Creek Tournament at Austin Ridge Bible Church
• Took over the long-running TX State Amateur Doubles Championships at the Snow Farm in Round Top, TX
• 34th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic, the final year at Waterloo Park for at least 3 or 4 years; raised $6,600: $5,800 donated to the Austin Ronald McDonald House and $800 for use on disc golf projects in Austin
• Donated over $3,300 in sponsorship to various tournaments
• continued our weekly Bartholomew mini and our WaterLeagues at Zilker

The club gained 10 new members this year for a total of 368 members at the end 2011. Disc Nation is a huge sponsor of the club and every renewing member gets a $10 Disc Nation gift certificate. 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 368, then you may be due for renewal. To check on your status just go to www.austindiscgolf.org, choose the Membership section, and click on the Current Members List file (next to Uncle Sam). 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 2011, 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 take care of it in person at one of our events.

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

In 2012, 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, 35th 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.

Default Waterloo New & Renewing Members

A much-belated WELCOME to all the people who joined Waterloo Disc Golf Club at the Roy G. Guerrero Grand Opening, and to those existing club members who renewed their membership! We really appreciate the support, and we couldn’t do all the work we do without it.

The new club member discs have arrived and I just passed them on to Kristi Gold yesterday. She now has all the member discs, Disc Nation bucks, and Supporting Member shirts, so if you didn’t get all your stuff at the time you joined/renewed, it should be coming soon.

Also if your membership was already current in 2012 and you haven’t yet received your $10 Disc Nation buck, then she should be getting that to you soon too. (this would be because you either renewed earlier in the year or did one of our multi-year renewals in 2011 or earlier)

If you don’t receive your items in a little while, or if you ever have any questions about your membership, feel free to contact Kristi or John Gold directly (Kristi Gold @ (512) 994-9508, [email protected]). Or you can send the club an email or note through our Facebook page or website and we’ll get it to them.

Special thanks to Damon & Stacey Neth, not only for Disc Nation’s non-stop incredible support for Waterloo, but also for becoming our two newest Lifetime Members!

And thanks again to ALL of you!
Waterloo Disc Golf Club

p.s. We are getting very close to member #400, who will it be?

Default David Anderson, RIP

Our disc golf family has lost a member. David Anderson, Waterloo member #83, passed away on Monday February 25, 2013 at the way-too-young age of 57. David was a great guy: friendly, thoughtful, funny, and soft spoken. He played disc golf for many years and went to a number of the Waterloo Club’s events and workdays. Here is a link to his obituary.

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/sta...551&fhid=10571

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Zilker Park fund at the Austin Parks Foundation. Zilker was a park, and a disc golf course, that David really enjoyed so the club will be making a contribution to that fund.

Our sincere condolences go out to David’s family and friends!

Default Club Member #420 Auction

This post is actually from last week, just before our Ice Bowl on Saturday, February 1, 2014:

FINALLY: the big 420 Auction

Member #420 is almost upon us; who wants this awesome number? We are having a fundraising auction to help us with the big Zilker renovation project that is just starting.

The bidding to be 420 will begin in person at the Ice Bowl this Saturday, and then will continue online until the end of Monday, February 10th.

You must either be a club member already, or be willing to join the club to have a chance to be #420. If an existing club member wins the auction, he or she will still retain their original number, but will forever now be known as 420  All of the non-members who bid must still join the club at the end of the auction, even if they didn’t win. We will extend the Ice Bowl membership drive discounts to everyone who bids, so if you don’t win you still join as the reduced rate of $10 (essentially free after you get your $10 Disc Nation certificate) or $25.

It’s 420 in Austin, how cool is that!

Thanks,
Waterloo Disc Golf Club

Default bidding almost closed

Jeremiah, Meteor Mike, Randon, and Fish have all been bid big numbers. Jeremiah still has it at $500 right now, but both he and Mike have indicated they are waiting for that last-minute action. Could it be that Fish, Randon, or even someone else is doing the same? It could all come down to who makes the highest last minute bid. Email bids to [email protected]; 10 pm (just about 30 minutes from now) is the cutoff.

Don't forget on the #420 bidding that it has to be emailed in to [email protected]. You can't just post it on here or one of the other pages.

So you posted a thread about YOUR local club that perpetuates the myth (or not a myth, I guess) that disc golfers are pot-head stoners, and further strengthened that myth because someone actually spent $725 of real cash on a number… again, for your local club. The fact that nobody else posted in this entire thread indicates, to me at least, the lack of national interest in this, I imagine…

So I have just one question: Why?

Default 2015 Waterloo Club Renewal

Waterloo Disc Golf Club
PO Box 33531 ~ Austin, TX 78764
www.austindiscgolf.org
December 2014


Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Member,

2015 is almost here and Waterloo Disc Golf Club (WDGC) is ready for another fun-filled 365 days in our beautiful City of Austin! Now is your chance to renew your annual club membership to help support our ongoing efforts to improve disc golf in the City. If you aren’t yet current on your 2015 club membership, now is the time.

So… what has WGDC done for you lately? Well, let’s see how 2014 rounded out:

• 14th Ice Bowl: 132 people took part, and we raised $1,375 plus 431 pounds of food for the Capital Area Food Bank (record amounts of both money and food)!
• 37th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic tournament: took place for the 2nd time at the historic Hancock Golf Course; Austin’s oldest disc golf event held at Austin’s oldest ball golf course. Over the tourney weekend, we raised $9,000 plus 23 gallons of can tabs for the Austin Ronald McDonald House; and we also raised $3,925 for improvements to Austin-area courses.
• 2nd Annual Young at Heart Parent/Child Doubles: 38 teams, we raised $325 for EDGE.
• Donated a portable basket, a permanent basket (installed in their courtyard/play area), and 50 putters to the Austin Children’s Shelter.
• Workdays at Roy G, Cactus Patch, Zilker, and Austin Ridge Bible Church; including the purchase and installation of 9 new baskets and new tee signs at Zilker. Beginning of the Manor Beautification Project.
• Took on the big fight to get disc golf added to the Pease Park Master Plan. Unfortunately, we lost the struggle and disc golf won’t be returning to the park, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. We fought hard and we will continue to fight for what disc golfers want and need in Austin.
• Ran other events over the course of the year: World’s Biggest DG Weekend, Bart Minis every Saturday, and Summer League and minis at Zilker.
• Sponsored 32 tournaments and events with over $4,000 in cash, merchandise, and support.
• 52 new club members, bringing our total membership to 465 members.

In 2015 we’ll continue with the renovation of the Zilker disc golf course in partnership with Austin Parks & Rec. Department and Austin Watershed Protection Department. We will ramp up the Manor Beautification Project in partnership with Travis County Parks. Dept. We will be having a huge celebration at the 38th Waterloo Disc Golf Classic in October to commemorate crossing the $100,000 mark of money raised for the Austin Ronald McDonald House. We will also be working towards more course maintenance of all our courses in addition to running the 15th Ice Bowl, 3rd Young at Heart Doubles, minis, a WaterLeague 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.



Club Membership Renewal Prices: Get a $10 Disc Nation certificate with your membership renewal – that means one year really only costs you $5 bucks!

1 Year: $15
3 Years: $40 ($5 discount)
5 Years: $65 ($10 discount)
10 Years: $125 ($25 discount)
Lifetime Renewal: $300 (your own new BFF! Waterlooooo!)

To renew, please mail in a check for your renewal (mail to the address in the letterhead), or you can pay in-person at a Waterloo event. If your address, phone number, or email has changed recently, please note the change with your payment.

The club’s 2015 goal is to reach over 500 members by year’s end. We need you to keep your membership current AND get your friends to join the club. You may be due for renewal. If you are receiving this letter by email, the member list is attached. If not, to check your status, go to www.austindiscgolf.org, there is a link to the member list right there on the home page; (unfortunately we are having some issues getting the “membership page” of the site updated so please disregard that for now). Click on the link and find your name; the list is in two sections: 1st is by member number, 2nd is by last name. If the right column next to your name is blank, or says “Current Through 2014”, then it’s time to renew!! You can also find the list on our Facebook page or send us an email to ask.



Waterloo Disc Golf Club is continuing as a PDGA Affiliate Club in 2015. 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.
