Hello Disc Golfers,
In addition to the Waterloo monthly mini this Saturday at Kyle, there is also a lot more going on. It is a great day to pitch in and help out at Austinís Parks, thanks to the Austin Parks Foundationís Itís My Park Day. At the bottom of this email is some info about it, and there are lots of projects that still need helpers.
One project near and dear to our hearts is the work at the Searight disc golf course, hosted by S.A.D.A.. From the list of activities on the APF website is this description:
Mary Moore - Disc Golf course maintenance and celebration
March 07, 2009
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
We will be removing invasive plants as well as mulching the disc gold course. There are NO dogs allowed and a limited number of children with their parents will be permited. Special activities include live music and food
After the work day, SADA is having a general meeting, all are welcome to attend. Email email@example.com
if you have any questions.
There is also a project at Bartholomew Park, that includes some clean up of the creek.
The Waterloo Club did not do an ďItís My Park Day ProjectĒ this year at Circle C because that project is nearing completion, and we are waiting on the city to do a bit more before we go in for our final stuff. There will likely be just one or two more workdays later this month.
There are also big tournaments in Victoria (though I think it is full) and in Wichita Falls (Josh Dann, 214-868-2996, firstname.lastname@example.org)
It will be a great weekend to get out and play disc golf, help disc golf, and help out all our wonderful parks! More info from APF is directly below.
