Important Meeting - Your Support Needed
PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD

Boards and Commissions Room
City Hall, 301 W. 2nd Street
Austin, Texas 78701
The Austin Parks Department (PARD) is giving a presentation Tuesday evening July 26th to the Austin Parks Board (the volunteer commission that pretty much oversees everything PARD does). It is going to be a progress report on PARD’s developing a new 18-hole disc golf course at Roy G Guerrero Colorado River Park. The Parks Board isn’t going to be voting ‘yes or no’ or anything like that, but if there isn’t a lot of visible support from the community for this, then they may “suggest” that the parks department reconsider the idea and then our course likely will not happen.
We need YOU, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR KIDS, the OLD AND THE YOUNG, and EVERYONE ELSE who supports putting an 18 Hole Disc Golf Course in Roy G. Park to COME TO THE MEETING. We want to show the Parks Board that Disc Golf is supported, played, and loved by those of all ages and diverse backgrounds. Our sport is the ultimate equal opportunity sport!
We need you and all others to fill the meeting hall with Disc Golf Supporters... and BRING YOUR DISC or MINI to wave in the air as a visual reference that you play disc golf in Austin; after all, we cannot have everyone speak, but we can have EVERYONE HOLD A DISC! This will show the PARD Board that we can support our causes and show up in great numbers; so when they look out in the audience, they can see you, your support, and your disc.
And speaking of speaking… we do not need speakers this time, so put away that fear of public speaking. We already have set up a good, short lineup of folks that will present all the necessary information.
We know that this can sound silly and unnecessary, but it isn’t . The biking community did this exact thing over the past few years and got results. Every time there was a hearing or presentation or meeting, they would have lots of supporters in the audience holding up bike helmets and stuff to provide that very visible community support.
