Ok, we know it is early June (instead of early January), but we are finally getting our 2012 Member Renewal Letter out! Better late than never? Anyway, we hope you can renew your membership and we’ll try to do a much better job of getting this out on time in 2013. You can renew in person this Saturday, June 9th, at the Roy G. Guerrero Grand Opening or this Sunday the 10th at the first mini at Roy G. (more details on the mini will be sent out soon, or check the club’s facebook or web page).
Everyone who renews for 2012 will receive a $10 Gift Certificate from Disc Nation!

Dear Waterloo Disc Golf Club Member,
We are well into a new year for disc golf in Central Texas, the spring weather was beautiful and we are headed into the long, hot summer. We are very late in getting our renewal information out, but here it is. If you aren’t yet current on your 2012 club membership, now is the time to do it. WDGC enjoyed some great successes this past year, but the biggest is just now coming to fruition: the Grand Opening of the new disc golf course at Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Park on June 9, 2012. It took a lot of hard work and lobbying to get the course approved, and then even more work getting it ready for play. This will be a premier course that we can all be proud of!
Other successes in 2011 included:
• Ice Bowl at Zilker Park (our 11th); 133 players; $750 raised for Capital Area Food Bank
• Battle of Slaughter Creek Tournament at Austin Ridge Bible Church
• Took over the long-running TX State Amateur Doubles Championships at the Snow Farm in Round Top, TX
• 34th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic, the final year at Waterloo Park for at least 3 or 4 years; raised $6,600: $5,800 donated to the Austin Ronald McDonald House and $800 for use on disc golf projects in Austin
• Donated over $3,300 in sponsorship to various tournaments
• continued our weekly Bartholomew mini and our WaterLeagues at Zilker
The club gained 10 new members this year for a total of 368 members at the end 2011. Disc Nation is a huge sponsor of the club and every renewing member gets a $10 Disc Nation gift certificate. The club’s goal for 2011 is to have over 400 members by the end of the year. If your member number is between 1 and 368, then you may be due for renewal. To check on your status just go to www.austindiscgolf.org
, choose the Membership section, and click on the Current Members List file (next to Uncle Sam). Next to your name will be “Current Through December 20xx” or a blank space. If the space is blank or if the “current through” year is 2011, then it is time for you to renew.
Annual renewals are $15 per person, regardless of your level of membership. However, you can also renew for multiple years, at a discounted rate, making it easier to keep your membership current longer. You can mail in a check for your renewal or you take care of it in person at one of our events.
1 Year Renewal $15
3 Year Renewal $40
5 Year Renewal $65
10 Year Renewal $125
Lifetime Renewal $300
In 2012, Waterloo Disc Golf Club will continue to meet with city and county representatives about developing more courses in Austin and Travis County and keeping and improving the existing courses. Regular course maintenance will be a priority in addition to running the Ice Bowl, 35th Waterloo Disc Golf Classic, other big tournaments, minis, a WaterLeague or three, and much, much more. All these things take a lot of work, so we really need your support: your time, your energy, and your renewal fees that allow Waterloo to fund its projects.
