When you wish upon a disc…

TDGA is preparing for our next disc order and the next DISCTRAVAGANZA, treasurer and merch master Mike W. says.
If you have forgotten the way the DISCTRAVAGANZA works is as such…for one night only TDGA club members will be able to buy discs from TDGA’s store stock for $1 over base wholesale.
That is a CRAZY DEAL!

To register your preferences, go to the online form.

For any questions or clarifications, go to the club Facebook page.

NOTE: You are giving suggestions not placing orders. Thus, we will try and get what you asked but we are not ordering specific discs for you.

New pro at Santa Cruz DGC; teepad work planned

SCruzSunsetThe TDGA board has appointed Karl Yares course pro at the Santa Cruz River Park Disc Golf Course, effective when Ben Vosper steps down in May. Course pros manage courses and maintenance and serve as liaisons with local officials and as official representatives to the PDGA.

With all the new signage installed, work to repair and replace the teepads at Santa Cruz is planned in the coming weeks — keep an eye out here and on the club Facebook page for information on how you can help. Congratulations to Karl and a heartfelt thanks to Ben, who has spent literally years and countless hours working on the Cruz and handling league and tourney duties and moved to revitalize club leadership at a critical time. 

New league start-time reminder; board to meet

JUST A REMINDER that the starting time for TDGA’s Sunday League (A-tees) at Santa Cruz River Park DGC is moving to 8 a.m. starting tomorrow, Sunday, April 6. As previously announced, the Saturday league at Groves DGC has moved to 8 a.m. for the summer.

Also, the TDGC/TDGA board will meet Sunday at 2 p.m. at Mays’ Counter Chicken and Waffles. We have a pretty full agenda but if there’s something you want brought up let a board member know. You’ll find the last approved meeting minutes on the About the Club page under Board.

Also please note that there is a new league Sunday mornings at Groves Park DGC, run by club VP Quentin Riddle. See earlier post or League page for details.

NOTE: Our apologies that the league schedule was screwed up recently, in the webmaster’s haste to edit new league info some data was dropped. Sorry for any inconvenience, it’s fixed now. If you notice something amiss with the website, send a note to contact@tucsondiscgolf.com

League news: Santa Cruz Sunday League to 8 a.m.; new Groves league

photoThe starting time for TDGA’s Sunday League (A-tees) at Santa Cruz River Park DGC is moving to 8 a.m. this coming Sunday, April 6. As previously announced, the Saturday league at Groves DGC has moved to 8 a.m. for the summer.

Also please note that there is a new league Sunday mornings at Groves Park DGC, run by club VP Quentin Riddle. It is a scratch league (no handis) on an A-B pad layout, starting time is 8:30 a.m. $4 round – $1 goes to Ace pool (currently above $150); CTP prizes awarded weekly.

Also, league directors are making every effort to get leagues started on time. Thus, please arrive 10-15ish minutes early for registration. This isn’t going to happen instantly but in the future arriving 10-15 minutes after the hour may be too late.

The Sunday A handicapped league at Santa Cruz has grown over the past couple of years from 20- 25 that could be pretty easily run by one person to now regularly reach 35 or more players (plus we now run the bag tag challenge). So we are actively trying to refine our registration, scoring and handicapping processes and you’ll see more on that soon.

Congrats to Lockdown players

Congratulations to all the TDGC and Marana DGC members who played and placed at the 2014 Lockdown at the Rock, hosted March 22-23 by Marana Disc Golf Club. Our 520 players won or played for top spots in most divisions, as we should! Congrats especially first place finishers Andrew Boehme (Open), Scott Carle (Grandmasters), Nick Stefano (Advanced) and Lance Puckett (Intermediate); and Pen Selusi, 2nd place, Advanced Masters.

For completer results go to the PDGA tourney Web page.

The TDGC would especially like to thank Lockdown TD Chad Miltenberger and all his crew for running a fine tourney, and it was nice to see tourney and Marana club co-founder Mike Anderson return from his new home in California to play and enjoy the Rock.

Lockdown looms at the Rock; Sunday SCruz league still on


The tough #1 pin at The Rock

The Lockdown at the Rock takes place this weekend, Sat. March 22 and Sunday March 23, good luck to all 520ers playing in this PDGA Sanctioned B-Tier Event and Cactus Series event!

Because many players were unable to get into the Lockdown before it filled, and thanks to LD Dave S., the Sunday ‘A’ pad league at Santa Cruz DGC will happen this Sunday (still 9 a.m. for now, will be moving to 8 a.m. in the next month or so).

However, the Saturday morning league at Groves has been suspended this week, and of course Marana’s Saturday league also is suspended for the tournament.
