With everybody headed up Mt. Lemmon for the 10th Annual Lemmond Drop, TDGA leagues the weekend of 5/30-5/31 are canceled, the regular schedule will resume June 6-7. Weekday leagues will be uninterrupted.
UPDATE: The 49er tourney was great, with 53 players on short notice and a fun time by all… Thanks to Jeremy, AJ and Tim Sells for putting this together!
TDGA member Jeremy Herr has arranged a mini demo tourney this Tuesday, May 19th at the 49er Country Club, come out and support if you can! Here’s Jeremy’s message : I know this is super last minute but we are taking advantage of the opportunity given to us. 49er Country Club is letting us do a Mini Tournament(Test Run) to see how well the turn out is. IF everything goes well we will be running two larger C-Tier events in the summer. Come show your support!
SANTA CRUZ UPDATE: As most of you know, we poured the last new pads at Santa Cruz recently and they came out great. THANKS to all who came out and helped last Sat. and throughout this years-long project and at those who donated to make this a reality. There’s still some groundwork and beautification stuff to do, then we’re going to have an event to mark the achievement. probably after Lemmon Drop. We will now be turning our main attention to Groves Park, which will be improved initially with new teepads, with an eye to a perhaps a larger redesign. Look for info on a meeting on Groves coming up soon. Thanks for your support of Tucson Disc Golf!
We will be pouring the final new teepads at Santa Cruz River Park this Saturday, May 9 at 7 a.m. Find the latest and let us know you’re coming at the event FB page.
This should not be an all-day affair, BUT we need as many people as we can get to arrive AT 7 A.M. to form crews for final prep work, pouring and finishing. Bring shovels, rakes and any concrete finishing tools, we’ll have some gloves and drinks. A celebratory round will likely break out afterwards.
Thanks you for your patience as we arranged this final concrete pour with the city, and thanks to all who donated to the Santa Cruz DGC Restoration Project. After the forms come off and we do final ground work, we will have a celebratory event to formally recognize this achievement and those who labored and donated to make the Cruz a much better place.
Women’s Golf Monthly Casual Round
Also on Saturday at Santa Cruz, TDGA member Bill R, a great supporter of growing women’s disc golf in Tucson, will be heading up the latest Women’s Golf Monthly Casual Round, starting with a tutorial for new players at 8:30 a.m. For more details or to reach Bill, go to the event FB page.
Quail Canyon Point Series
We are looking into having a point series at Quail Canyon. This series is a PDGA sanctioned league. For PDGA sanctioned leagues $1 of your entry fee goes to the PDGA (they send back $.50 of that dollar to TDGA) and your rounds go toward your PDGA rating. The series would be twice monthly for June, July, and August and would be a flex start. In the interest of including everyone we would like your opinion. Click on this form and give us your opinion. Following each option is the total cost if you play all 6 rounds in the series. At the end there will be a championship round for the top players of each division cost TBD.
The board will tentatively meet Wed. April 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Kasbah Hookah Lounge, 2402 N Campbell Ave. An agenda is posted in the Board Meetings page.
