40th Waterloo Disc Golf Classic; Oct 20-22, 2017; Austin, TX

Post Posted: Fri Aug 04, 2017 12:41 pm

We are back at Hancock Golf Course for the 5th straight year, and looking forward to another wonderful Waterloo Disc Golf Classic. Last year's event raised $9,100 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas (RMH), bringing our grand total donation to RMH to over $117,000!

Doubles (one round, flex start) all day on Friday, October 20th; three and a half rounds of Singles on Sat & Sun, Oct 21-22, 2017.

Come enjoy the oldest, longest running disc golf tournament in the Southwestern U.S. and one of the oldest in the world. You will play two full 18-hole disc golf courses on this scenic 9-hole ball golf course, the oldest golf course west of the Mississippi. A "Disc-Golf-Famiy" event like no other.

40th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic
October 20-22, 2017
Hancock Golf Course
Austin, TX

2017 Father Dave McC-Note Challenge!

We have said for many years now that regular registration for the annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic tournament usually starts EITHER when we get to about 1 ½ months out (around the beginning of September) OR when we get ½ full with Father Dave McC-Note Challengers. Some years it has been the former, other years it has been the latter.

We aren’t to the half-way full point quite yet but we are getting close, so now is a great time to get your McC-Note in to save your spot before regular registration opens up for the 40th Annual Waterloo DG Classic. Once we do open up registration, those spots go fast. Even though there will be around 90 available, they still usually sell out within 5 – 10 days.

To reserve your spot by taking the Father Dave McC-Note Challenge: send the Waterloo Club a check or money order for $100 now. Send it, payable to Waterloo DGC, to: Waterloo DGC, PO Box 33531, Austin, TX 78764. Please include your full name, email and/or phone number, division, and pdga number (if you have one).

You can also bring your payment and info to give to Gordon in person at League at Zilker on Thursday evenings. If paying in person, you can also pay with cash (please do NOT mail cash).


Below in the next post are the full details of the “Challenge” as well as the people who have already reserved a spot in this year’s tournament.

Also… it is still okay to be a McC-Note Challenger even after regular registration has opened up. Lots of people do that every year. It no longer has the benefit of saving a spot but it does help raise money for the charity, it does get you the ‘McC-Note Goodie’ in your player’s package, and we do have CTPs during the tournament for McC-Note Challengers only. Lots of good reasons to do it anyway.

Here are the details of how to reserve your spot by taking the Father Dave McC-Note Challenge:

Send the Waterloo Disc Golf 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 charity. For the past three years at Hancock, we have averaged 113 McC-Noters, which added an average of $3,300 each year to the total charitable donation!

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 charity (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 Waterloo DGC, to:

Waterloo DGC
PO Box 33531
Austin, TX 78764

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

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.

Below are two files. 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. I will try to get attachments of both these posted soon, or at least a link to them as google docs, but the system won't accept them just now.

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.

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!

Dear Sponsor,

The Waterloo Disc Golf Club is proud to announce that it is hosting the 40th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic in Austin, TX on October 20-22, 2017. This historic disc golf tournament is the longest running tournament in the Southwestern U.S. and one of the oldest in the world. This year’s event will be held at the historic Hancock Golf Course, the very first ball golf course in Austin. We will be setting up two full 18-hole disc golf courses at Hancock. Austin’s oldest disc golf event happens at Austin’s oldest ball golf course, it is going to be a fantastic weekend!

The 40th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic will again benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas (RMH). The RMH is a wonderful non-profit, charitable organization that provides a home away from home for families with critically ill children undergoing treatment at area hospitals. This allows parents the chance to be close to their children at a time when they are needed most.

Last year’s donation to RMH was $9,100, and the tournament’s grand total over the years is now $117,043. The goal for 2017 is to raise $10,000, and our sponsors are crucial to this effort. Won’t you please help by supporting this wonderful tournament? Sponsorship can be in the form of cash, merchandise, or a combination of the two.

For a sponsorship of $250 or more: your logo or name on the back of the official tournament shirt and on two tee-box signs (one sign on each course). Plus, you may display one of your banners at tournament headquarters. Your logo/name also will be added to the Sponsor List that will be displayed at the course and included in the tournament program.

For $150 - $249: your logo/name on two tee-box signs and on the Sponsor List.

For up to $149: your name on the Sponsor List.

Please mail all sponsorship to Waterloo Disc Golf Club, PO Box 33531 Austin, TX, 78764 (checks payable to Waterloo DGC). If you wish, you may make your check payable directly to Ronald McDonald House CCTX in order to get the tax benefits of a charitable donation. For more information, please contact Gordon Kelley at gordo@discgordo.com or waterloodgc@gmail.com, or call the Waterloo Club cell phone 512-994-9508.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Gordon Kelley
Waterloo Disc Golf Club

Here are links to our Sponsorship Request Letter & Form, you can view, download, and print them out.
Sponsorship Request Letter: drive.google.com/file/...sp=sharing
Sponsor Form: drive.google.com/file/...sp=sharing

We would really appreciate if you would take these around to local businesses you may know or visit frequently to ask if they will sponsor the tournament. The more sponsorship we get, the more money we can raise and the more we can do for all the players. Thanks!

Registration for the 40th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic is now open! The flyer and the entry form are in the pictures with this post, or you can access them through the links just a little bit further down in this post. We will also post a “text only” version of the entry form in a separate post.

Sorry, but no online registration and no electronic payment is available.

You must either mail in your entry, with payment, or bring it to Zilker on Thursday evenings to give to me (Gordon).
Postmark or the date I receive it in my hand will determine your date of entry. If there will be a Thursday when I can’t make it to Zilker, then I’ll designate the person who is running the mini/league that night to take them. Otherwise they need to come to me, not to someone else to give to me.

Link to 40th Annual Waterloo Entry Form:
40th WL Entry

Link to 40th Annual Waterloo Flyer:
40th WL Flyer

I recommend not waiting for Thursday to register in person. Spots always go very fast and by waiting you risk it filling up before you have a chance to get there. Mail in your entry right away so it gets a postmark before league night. Keep in mind that if you pay in person on Thursday I likely won’t be able to tell you that night whether you are in the tournament or whether you are on the waitlist. That is because it will be a few more days after that before stuff mailed and postmarked before league makes it to the club’s PO Box. However, it you are going to take a chance and wait until Thursday, see below:

For the next league night (Thursday, August 17th), I will be at Zilker Park to collect tournament entries even IF league has been cancelled.


* If league is ON, you can drop entries off with me between 4:30 – 6:00 (before the round) or from 8:00 – 8:30 (after the round). If you show up and find me on the course during the round, you need to have your money and entry form already filled out and ready just to hand to me. If you don’t have an entry form with you, grab one from the kiosk and fill it out before tracking me down, or at least have your basic info written on a piece of paper to give along with your check, money order, or cash. Please don’t show up with your money and expect me to stop my round to write all your info down; if you do that I will just send you back to the kiosk to get a form and then come back out and find me again ?.

* If league ends up being CANCELLED because of weather, I will still be there from 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm, either by the hole #1 teebox or in the parking lot by #1 if it is raining - in which case look for my dark blue Toyota Sienna mini-van.

We have about 90 Father Dave McC-Note Challengers right now (half-full), so that leaves about 90 spaces available. But don’t wait, the tournament usually fills up within 5 – 10 days; mail your entry in ASAP to secure your spot in this fun, awesome tournament.

Also, even though registration is now open, you can still take the Father Dave McC-Note Challenge. It no longer has the benefit of saving your spot, but you will still be helping out the charity plus you’ll get a cool McC-Note goodie in your player’s pack and you’ll have an extra CTP each round that is for McC-Noters only. Every year a number of people do this, you can be one of them this year.

Thanks!
Waterloo Disc Golf Club

p.s. Waterlooooooooooooooooooooooo

HOT NEWS, JUST OFF THE PRESS!

I will be at Disc Nation tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday, Aug. 16) from 4:30 – 6:00 pm
to accept entries in person to the 40th Annual Waterloo DG Classic.

If you don’t want to wait for League at Zilker on Thursday, this is the perfect opportunity to get your entry in sooner. This tournament fills up fast! It could reach full at any time. Hope to see you there. ~gordon

The 40th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic (Oct 21-22, 2017) is FULL. I have sent out all of the confirmations for the people who made it in, except for the last few players. I need to wait another day or two to sure there are no more “slow envelopes” that just haven’t arrived yet before I can confirm the last few.

If you sent in your entry and got a postmark on or before Thursday Aug. 17th OR entered in person on Thursday night Aug. 17th at League, but have NOT GOTTEN a confirmation please contact me NOW and let me know.

If you sent it in (got a postmark on) Friday Aug. 18th through today, then either I’m waiting to see if you made it in or I’ve got you on the waitlist already based on the date you sent it. I’ll be contacting you about that soon.

If you'd like to be added to the waitlist, just let me know. The best ways are to send me an email at the club’s address waterloodgc@gmail.com, my personal address gordo@discgordo.com, or call the club cell phone at 512-994-9508 (be sure to leave a message if I don’t answer). You can also post here or on the tournament’s Facebook Page: 40th Waterloo Facebook Page or send me a message on Facebook. Please DO NOT post on Fellow Disc Golfers or the Waterloo Club FB pages (it is too easy for the posts to get “lost in the clutter” there, so I may never see them). Also, if posting on the tournament’s FB page please make a new post (don’t just reply to someone else’s); again this will help me see your post instead of it being buried as a reply/comment on someone else’s post.

I need your name, division, and contact info (email and/or phone number). Remember, if you call the cell phone, be sure to leave a message with your info, including the date and time of your call. Don’t hang up and call later to try and reach me in person; that might just put you further down on the list.

If someone withdraws, I will contact the next person on the waitlist.

If you clear the waitlist before the tournament gets here, I'll contact you about it. Otherwise, the only thing you have to do is be there Saturday morning at tourney HQ when check-in closes at 8:30 am. Tournament HQ is by the Golf Course Pro Shop. If anyone drops out at the last minute or hasn't checked in, we'll drop them and fill their spot with someone from the waitlist.

Here is the link to the Player List on the PDGA site: 40th Waterloo PDGA Tournament Page. It has been updated and it now includes all the confirmed players: those who entered ON OR BEFORE Thursday, Aug. 17th. I have sent out confirmation emails to all of these players. If you are on this list and did NOT get a confirmation email, get in touch with me RIGHT AWAY (but go check your email account and/or FB messages first!).

Also, be sure to check that your division and pdga number are correct. It is very important that your division is correct because it may not be possible to change it later.

Thanks,
Gordon Kelley
