Below is the sponsorship request letter for this event. Disc Nation is a HUGE sponsor and Waterloo Disc Golf Club has already agreed to help too; and when I sent out the email about it on Friday, the first to respond with a "yes" was SADA. Thank you South Side!!!



Dear Sponsor,

Saturday, April 9, 2011 will be the First Annual William David Lang V Memorial Disc Golf Tournament. It will be held at Steeplechase Park in Kyle, TX. William (Billy) died tragically a couple of years ago at the too-young age of 19. His parents, family, and friends are joining together to celebrate his life doing something Billy loved so much: playing disc golf! This will be a fun disc golf event for beginners through pros, and we will be raising money for the local, non-profit, drug rehabilitation center: Austin Recovery.

We would like to ask you to please help us honor William’s memory and support a great local charity that gives back to our community in such an important way: helping people regain their lives. Any amount will help, and for $50 or more, we will include your name on a tee sign on the disc golf course during the event. Sponsorship can be in the form of cash, merchandise, or gift certificates. Checks can be made payable to Austin Recovery or to Gordon Maxim-Kelley, and should be sent to Gordon at 1905 Harmon Hills Rd, Dripping Springs, TX, 78620. Merchandise and certificates should be sent here too.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact the Tournament Director, Gordon Maxim-Kelley at (512) 858-1615, or Billy’s parents: Mary Baker and David Lang at (830) 540-3301.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Gordon Maxim-Kelley
Tournament Director

Saturday April 9th will be the Billy Lang Memorial Disc Golf Tournament at Steeplechase Park in Kyle, TX.

It is a 1-day, 2-round tournament; not pdga sanctioned.

Billy Lang loved playing disc golf. He died a couple of years ago (at the young age of 19, I believe) and his parents want to honor him by throwing a tournament in his name. The entry fees will be kept low and it will be a fundraiser for the Austin Recovery Center, but there will be added cash and prizes.

More information coming soon, but mark that date in your calendars. We want to have a really fun event for all the players that honors Billy's spirit, gives back to our community, and helps his parents with the healing process.

If you knew Billy, please get in touch with me: gordon @ ventbird.com or a PM through this message board.

Thanks!
Gordon

NEEDED - 10-15 Experienced Disc Golfers to help introduce Disc Golf to a group of It's My Park Day volunteers.

WHEN: Saturday, March 5th from 11am-3pm

WHERE: Zilker Park, North Course

Interested parties, please email Zac Tolbert at zac @ club51discgolf.com

Link to Event Website click connect.austinparks.or...ty_id=1060


Background Info:

March 5th marks the 9th annual It's My Park Day, presented by The Austin Parks Foundation. This year's event promises to be much bigger than years past, with 60+ projects citywide! One of the single largest projects will be the final step in the Zilker Tree Rescue Project, which will include 200 volunteers and the planting of nearly 300 trees throughout the park including many around the disc golf course. But don't worry, The Urban Forestry Department and Austin Parks Foundation were proactive, seeking out the advise of local disc golf course designers to ensure the new trees will do nothing but improve the course.

The best part is, the Forestry Dept. approached the Waterloo Disc Golf Club and Club 51 Disc Golf with the desire to promote disc golf through this event! So after the morning of tree planting, volunteers can head over to the Zilker North course for a small lunch and free disc golf introduction.

Thank you in advance for your support!

I’ve seen/heard word going round that 2 baskets were stolen from the Austin Ridge Bible Church course. This is really despicable!!!

They put up a great course for all to play, so the least we can do is help the church get the baskets back from whoever stole them (prosecution of the thieves would be even better though, in my opinion).

Below is some information from Josh Thornton, the Property Director for the church. If you have ANY information at all about these thefts, please contact Josh.



It was basket #1 and #3 on our course. They have 1 and 3 on them. They are Innova Disc Catchers. Red lettering and yellow top trim. They will not have the locking tab on them. They were donated to the church by an individual trying to give back to the community.


Thanks for your help,

With all the frustrating events surrounding disc golf here in Austin lately, it is nice to finally have some good news.

The improvements to the Zilker course have begun!!!

The large limestone benches have already been installed on all 18 holes, and the new concrete tee boxes on the south side have been framed up and should be done pretty soon.

Fresh mulch will be put out this Saturday morning (9 am – 1 pm) during the club’s workday, and more work is still ahead with stuff like paths, erosion controls, and other Circle C / Searight type features.

Later in the year, we hope to put in new tee signs. This will mark the first time there have been signs at the Zilker course since the late 80s or early 90s.

The work is being done through a partnership between the club and the Austin Parks & Rec. Dept. The has committed over $2000 to this project and the more we can raise, the sooner we can get it all done. The city is spending a lot on this course as well, through materials, equipment, and labor.

If you would like to make a donation to the project, you can mail it to the club at WDGC, PO Box 33531, Austin, TX, 78746 or you can donate in person at the Disc Nation store at 1218 W. Slaughter Lane (and if you do, they will match that donation dollar for dollar – thanks Disc Nation!). You can also do it in person at the club’s Ice Bowl at Zilker on February 5th or at any of the club’s other minis and events.

If we end up with more than we need for Zilker, we’ll spend the rest on Bartholomew Very Happy

Thanks!
Waterloo Disc Golf Club

You can also donate in person at Disc Nation, and…

Disc Nation will MATCH every donation that is made in their store. They did the same thing for the Searight renovations and it made a big difference. Thanks Damon! Thanks Disc Nation!!!

Re: Zilker Park Course Major Improvements

Post Posted: Mon Oct 25, 2010 10:47 am

Waterloo Disc Golf Club is partnering with the Austin Parks & Recreation Department to make some long overdue, much needed improvements to the disc golf course at Zilker Park.

These include major improvements such as concrete tee pads on the south 9 holes and limestone benches on all the holes (similar to Circle C & Searight). These also include minor improvements like the trails/paths, and likely further down the road a ways tee signs for the whole course.

The Waterloo Club has already committed $1500 of club funds to the project and we’ve raised another $500 from individuals. We’ll also be having some volunteer events for working on the course that will be announced once they are scheduled. The city will be providing a lot of the labor and a lot of the equipment and supplies, plus some funding as well.

What the club needs now are some additional funds for the project. The more money we can raise, the more work we can do and the quicker we can do it.

To donate in person, come by the Thursday evening Zilker League this Thursday (Oct. 28th) or the Thursday after that (Nov 4th) – we are playing twice around the south side, so just look for Gordon or Phil Haik; or you can do it at the Club’s Monthly Mini in November (date & course TBA).

You can also mail a check or money order to the club: WDGC, PO Box 33531, Austin, TX, 78764 (payable to WDGC or Waterloo Disc Golf Club).

Thank you very much for your help and support as we continue to try and bring our existing courses up to excellent condition!

Re: Public Meeting, Bartholomew Park, Wed.evening, June 23rd

Post Posted: Tue Jun 22, 2010 5:09 pm

Just a reminder that tomorrow evening, Wednesday June 23rd, there is a very important Public Meeting about the future of Bartholomew Park. Disc golfers NEED to attend this meeting to voice support for keeping a disc golf course in Bartholomew.

The situation is not as dire as at Pease. They have not threatened to pull the course out. HOWEVER, if disc golf is not seen as a need or desire of the park users and residents, then it is likely it won’t remain a feature of the park.

We need you to show up at this meeting and say that disc golf is an appropriate activity and a desired activity for the park.

It would be especially helpful for disc golfers who live in one of the neighborhoods near the park to show up and voice your support (or if you have friends who live near there, bring them).

COTO is this weekend! 20th Annual Capital of Texas Open

The Waterloo Club no longer runs this event - and hasn’t for several years - but we do always set up a booth at Pease Park and hold a membership drive and some kind of fun, fundraising event (Thanks Team Justice!).

This year the fun event is a putting contest, but not just any putting contest; this time it is a Jump-Putt competition! Very Happy

We will also be giving away door prizes for our current club members plus anyone who joins the club during the weekend (or renews their membership). So be sure to come by the Waterloo Club tent to get your ticket. We’ll be there at Pease all day Saturday and Sunday.

This is a great chance to join the club at a discounted price: just $10 for a Player Membership (normally $20) or just $25 for a Supporting Membership (normally $40).

Info about a cool event from Disc Nation...



Subject: Austin Disc Golfers - Participate in the World's 1st Celebrity Disc Golf Event this Saturday!

Disc Nation and Beyond the Lights are proud to announce the World's 1st Celebrity Disc Golf Event this Saturday at the Lost Pines Hyatt in Bastrop, TX. Join members of the cast and crew of TV's Friday Night Lights, as well as other celebrities, for an 18-hole Disc Golf event on the Colorado river at the beautiful Lost Pines Hyatt Resort.

Mike Olse generously donated his time to design an super-fun and beginner-friendly course for the event. The focus of this event is FUN and the folks at Beyond the Lights are enthusiastic about disc golf, but most are not serious players, so we've designed this event to appeal to beginners. Registration is $20 per person and each player will receive an event t-shirt, custom-stamped golf disc, entry into a raffle featuring prizes that include a basket from the event, a Disc Nation gift certificate, a free entry into the Windy Hill Putting Challenge, and more. The event is comprised of one round of 18 holes and there will be no payout or prizes based on performance. Of course, the proceeds from this event go to the Beyond the Lights charity which raises money to help fund research on spinal cord injuries.

This is a perfect event for anyone who wants the rare opportunity to play disc golf with celebrities, wants to turn a new player onto the sport we all love, or who simply wants to play a very unique event on the newest course in the Austin-area. Celebrities scheduled to play in this event include Friday Night Lights' Kyle Chandler and Brad Leland, and King of the Hill's Johnny Hardwick. We're expecting additional celebrities as well, and you just never know who will show up at a cool Austin-area event like this!

To register: www.austincommunityfou...iser_id=76
General Information About This Event: www.beyondthelights.org/v2/ (Click on the Disc Golf Link)

If you are interested then register as soon as possible to guarantee your spot in this one-of-a-kind event! We will accept registrations the day of the event, space permitting.

For additional information please contact Disc Nation at 512-280-1115 or customerservice @ discnation.com.

We Hope to see you there!!

Your Friends at Disc Nation
