About this tournament

Winning Numbers

THANK YOU to everyone who bought tickets!!! Here are pics of the prize packs and winning ticket numbers. We have also posted pics of these in the Pictures section of this page (though right now the system is messing up the pic by turning it on its side – not sure why).

If you have any of these that you haven’t claimed yet, then the easiest thing to do is take a pic of the winning ticket(s) and post email it to the club at [email redacted] Once we have replied back that I’ve seen it, then you can discard the ticket(s) and not have to worry about keeping up with them; I will put your name on the prize pack.

To pick up your prize(s), come down to MET CENTER THIS SATURDAY, Oct. 23rd. Waterloo DGC will have a booth there for the Throwdown Showdown tournament (but Saturday only).

If you just can’t make it to Met Center on Saturday, the next time the club will definitely have them out at an event and available would be Ice Bowl (the Saturday before the Super Bowl).

Thanks, and Waterloooooooooo




The 44th Annual Waterloo Disc Golf Classic will be held at EITHER Han***Ball Golf Course in Austin OR Moody's Disc Golf Ranch in Red Rock.

BEFORE YOU REGISTER, make sure you are okay with playing at either place.
--------------------------------------------------------


I know everyone isn't on Facebook. That is why I'll be sending emails and putting stuff here in comments or in the "About" section of DG Scene.

Rather than send everyone 1 or 2 really really long emails (eye-glazing amounts of info), I'll probably be sending a bunch of shorter ones covering just a subject or two. So please check your email regularly from now until the tournament.
--------------------------------------------------------

THINGS ARE LOOKING GREAT FOR HAVING THE EVENT AT HANCOCK! All planning at this point is for the golf course :)
---------------------------------------------------------

Some problems with the original 44th Waterloo Player Meeting document (a couple of bad links to important documents).
THIS IS THE NEW, CORRECT DOCUMENT & LINK:

44th Waterloo Player Meeting Document
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EKnfNYIJ7rfeF5B6ZTk83gSurs9fd9Mb/view?usp=sharing

Sorry to be so late in getting this finished up!! Here is the link to the 44th Waterloo Player Meeting Document, please download it to your phone, along with the course map and course rules (links are in the document), so you have it with you all weekend.

Even if you are only playing doubles, there is important info there like parking, how to find your tee time, when to arrive, how to find results, etc.
---------------------------------------------------------

One thing I left off the player meeting document is a long-standing issue out there, something the city asked us to do years ago when we first moved the tournament to Hancock:

Please, no cleats of any kind. Not pointy, not blunt, just no cleats. We have potential to tear things up too much as it is, especially when things are wet. So let’s not make it worse with cleats.


Thanks!!
-------------------------------------------------

Social Distancing is still part of the city’s protocol on events at the golf courses. Whether you are out playing or around HQ or the parking lots, please maintain that standard 6 feet of distance from others not in your household. When you can’t do that, you should wear a mask. We will have extras at HQ, please come get one if you need it.

However, things are not so strict this time that we can’t have others around. NO CADDIES, but it is okay to have a small number of adult guests or spectators on the cards this year. But it needs to be limited to 1 extra person per player (on average), so no more than a total of 8 people should be in any group.

Also, no children under the age of 12 should be there during Waterloo at any time, Friday through Sunday.

It is not just the safety issue in social distancing, it is (and I hate this phrase) “the optics of the situation”. As mentioned in another post, lots of neighbors live very close to the golf course and we don’t want to give them a reason to dislike the disc golf tournament at Han* Yes, the city can tune some of that stuff out but it does add up and does get discussed the next time we want to reserve the course.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
----------------------------------------------------------

Waterloo at the golf course is a “Be on your Best Behavior” place. Yes, it’s a ton of fun. But it is not a typical park or typical courses, off in the woods or away from homes, often out of sight of others.

There are neighbors and lots of traffic on all sides of the property, some very close to the holes.

Even more importantly, there is a City Recreational Center ONSITE, meaning: Kids, Parents, Rec. Center Employees. Our HQ is near it and the courses wind all around their areas (and two of our holes are on their soccer field).

So it is CRUCIAL to be on best behavior, in all things, especially anywhere near the Rec. Center and all the parking lots.

But also important NOT to give the neighbors a reason to complain.

Please don’t make us DQ you for bad/inappropriate behavior. We won’t like it, but we’ll do it.

Thanks!
---------------------------------------------------------

Tee Time and Your Arrival Time:

For both singles and doubles you NEED to plan your arrival time for AT LEAST 30 MINUTES before your tee time, and we strongly advise you to plan for even earlier than that. Why? Because you can’t just drive up at the last minute and expect get to your tee on time.

First you’ll need have time to find a place to park and then unload, and you may have to park and walk a good distance (and uphill) to HQ.

For warming up, there will be practice baskets around HQ. Please stay out of the area near the basketball court on Friday (between the court and Olse #1, and on the far side of the court). That is for Rec. Center use only on Friday. However, we will have some baskets up there for warmup on Sat. & Sun.

Finally, you MUST be at hole #1 of your assigned course 10 MINUTES before your scheduled tee time. And you need to be ready to throw at that point.

There is NO CHECK-IN at HQ before your round, just go to hole #1 of your assigned course and be there 10 minutes before your scheduled tee time, and be ready to throw… just in case something changes at the last minute.

So you really need to plan to get there early to give yourself time for all that. PLUS, you always want to give yourself time in case there is slow traffic or a wreck or something that causes the drive to the course to take longer than expected.

Another thing really important for all 3 days is to be flexible, be prepared to roll with the changes and adjustments that may happen, and keep a happy Waterloo attitude. This year will already be very different, so if more changes occur please just smile and remember that we are all very happy just to be back at Han
Golf Course.

There is one thing that could happen in both singles and doubles, and it is the main reason you NEED TO BE at hole #1 of your assigned course 10 minutes before your scheduled tee time AND why you need to be ready to throw. If someone hasn’t shown up and we only have 2 singles players at their tee time, or just 1 team for doubles, we will need to pull a person or team off the next card. So you need to be there 10 minutes before your scheduled tee time and ready to throw just in case you get pulled onto that card in front of you.

We hope not to have to do this, especially in doubles if you were hoping to play with a certain team, but we need to stay on schedule so everyone finishes before dark, so we might have to. Again… take a deep breath, be flexible, and say to yourself Waterlooooooooo
--------------------------------------------------------

RESTROOMS, ALCOHOL, AND SMOKING:

We have very specific rules and policies about alcohol, smoking, and using the provided restroom/port-o-potties. The golf course will have Marshalls out there riding and walking around keeping an eye on things, and the tournament will too. Plus there will be Rec. Center employees, parents, and kids around the buildings, play areas, and parking lots. DON’T BREAK THESE RULES!

Restrooms: ONLY use the on-course restroom and port-o-potties! DO NOT USE any trees, creek beds, or anywhere else you “think” no one can see you. There is a permanent bathroom (small concrete building) out on the Kelly course. There will be 6 port-o-potties around HQ area and the two courses. Unfortunately the Pro Shop being closed means the restrooms in there are unavailable.

Alcohol: Players CANNOT drink alcohol during their sanctioned, singles rounds on Sat. & Sun.

Some alcohol drinking is allowed at the golf course, but not everywhere and not all the time.

When: You can drink any time on Friday during doubles. You can drink on Sat. & Sun EXCEPT when your official singles rounds are happening.

Where: ONLY on the ball golf course part of the property. This is much of the property, but not all of it.
You can NEVER DRINK near the Pro Shop. You can NEVER DRINK in the parking lots. You can NEVER DRINK on the soccer field (holes #17 & #18 of the Olse Course). You can NEVER DRINK anywhere near the Recreation Center.

Smoking/Vaping: Some tobacco smoking/vaping is allowed at the golf course, but not everywhere.

Where: ONLY on the ball golf course part of the property (same as the alcohol rules). This is much of the property, but not all of it.
You can NEVER SMOKE/VAPE near the Pro Shop, in the parking lot, on the soccer field (holes #17 & #18 of the Olse Course), or anywhere near the Recreation Center. ONLY ON THE BALL GOLF COURSE.
Finally: do not throw any cigarette butts on the ground!

--------------------------------------------------------

Parking is very limited at Han
Golf Course.

The small parking lot downhill by the Pro Shop and tourney HQ is for STAFF ONLY.

All along the right-hand side of the driveway is NO PARKING, at all, for the entire weekend (this is the part next to the golf course and their putting green).

Along the left-hand side of the driveway is some parking but not a lot. We have 2 holes down in that area, including in the soccer field, so don’t park past where we have marked.

On FRIDAY, the upper parking lot is partially available. However, the southern part of it near the Rec. Center is RESERVED for Rec. Center parking only. DO NOT park there on Friday; don’t go beyond the orange traffic cones.

On SAT. & SUN., the upper lot is completely OPEN. But it still doesn’t hold that many cars.

Otherwise you can park on E. 41st Street, Peck Avenue, or other nearby streets.

If you park along the golf course side of E. 41st, please pull straight in (if room) or at an angle so more cars will fit. If everyone parallel parks, there won’t be that many cars that will fit.

No matter what, give yourself extra time to get there, find a space, and get to HQ. If you have to park next to the course along Peck or further down E. 41st St., it can take a while to walk up to HQ.

When parking inside Han
property, keep in mind that there is a City of Austin Recreation Center that shares the property. On Friday especially, there WILL be kids around and there WILL be parents coming to pick them up. BEST BEHAVIOR REQUIRED. Not much can get us kicked out of Hanpermanently faster than parents screaming about what they, or what their kids saw. Please don’t be “that person”.

Also, when parking on any of the streets around the course, be courteous and kind, don't drink, curse, or litter - pretend your grandmother lives in that house! (and if it helps, pretend she is a sweet little old lady, and the kind that will tan your hide for misbehaving :) )

---------------------------------------------------------
Some great news about 44th Waterloo, but also a big caveat.

The great news is that we have signed the contract to play the event at Han
*Golf Course! Hooray!!!

The big caveat is that we had a contract last year too, and still had to move the tournament. So depending on how things go with the virus in Austin this fall, the city could end up cancelling events at their golf courses again and we could end up back at Moody’s Ranch. At least this year if it happens we will still be on the same weekend. We might have to shift locations but we shouldn’t have to shift dates.

We have told the city that we are willing to look at, and consider implementing, many of the protocols we had in place last year to keep things safe for our players and staff and to keep the city comfortable with the situation. The one thing we already know we will be doing is ASSIGNED TEE TIMES for Singles on Sat. & Sun. The plan right now is for everyone to play 2 rounds on Saturday (once on each course) and 1 round on Sunday.
---------------------------------------------------------------

If we have to switch it to Moody's we will do so; and if we switch, it will NOT be a reason for a full refund. See the cancellation schedule below for more info on how much refund you'll be eligible for if you cancel.

ALL singles entry fees include $20 greens fee for Sat & Sun, $2 PDGA fee, and $10 donation to the fundraising.
