Looking Back at 2009 and Ahead to 2010
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.
