The Tucson Disc Golf Association board will hold a regular monthly meeting this Saturday Feb. 22, at 6 p.m. Since this meeting will be held at the home of a board member, we will have limited space so if you wish to attend, let a club officer know or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or use the E-mail Us! link on this page). All members are welcome attend board meetings but if you wish to address the board, please let us know beforehand. We are working to plan another General Meeting with an open forum where members can speak about any subject, like we had last March.
A full agenda will soon be posted here and on the About the club/Board meetings page; among the items for discussion and/or action are a new course pro at Santa Cruz, scheduling a work day to replace teepads at Santa Cruz, the next open meeting and disc sale.
Here’s TDGA board member and Tucson Ice Bowl TD Dave Wichner handing a ceremonial check for $2,713 to Jack Parris of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. Thanks to Scott H who hauled and dropped off the 258 pounds of food donated, and to EVERYONE who made Tucson’s 19th annual Ice Bowl a huge success. This is the club’s major charity event of the year and everyone stepped up!
According to Ice Bowl HQ (national office) records, Tucson held its first Ice Bowl in 1996 and over the years has contributed at least $13,750. (For one year there is a Tucson entry with no dollar amount, looking into that.)
The Tucson Ice Bowl is part of an international series of tournaments started in 1987 to benefit local food banks. In 2013, the 13,367 disc golfers who participated in 241 events in the United States, Canada, Finland, and Norway raised $311,862 in cash and more than 32 tons of food, the most successful fundraising year to date.
The club is preparing its next disc order and would like your input for an order we intend to place by March 3rd, TDGC/TDGA Treasurer Mike W says.
We have limitations (color and weight) when we order and these limits have been incorporated into the form. Use the additional notes area to specify things (eg. specific color or weight). There are actual people who go pick these discs and we can give them notes. Thank you for your help and continued support as we try to grow the TDGA.
To register your disc preferences, go to the online form.
For any questions or clarifications, go to the club Facebook page
No cash? In addition to recently revising club member disc prices to offer a better deal, the club now has the ability to swipe debit or credit cards for purchases. See Mike, who usually has the club disc store at Sunday A league at Santa Cruz.

A one-day tuneup tourney for the Lockdown at the Rock is slated for Saturday March 8 on the extended 27-hole layout at Marana Rock, TD Chad M. has announced. If you’ve never played the extended layout for the Lockdown, or you could just use the practice, this is a great chance to play a cool course. (Note: Chad notes that the extended 9 holes is weather permitting; rain is no problem but excessive mud would make it impossible to set up the baskets.) Click on the flyer for info and keep up with the latest at the Marana Disc Golf Club Facebook page.
Tucson Disc Golf Club T-shirts, complete with vintage back design from the original Tucson Chain Lightning have arrived and will be available for pickup at Marana Rock singles league Saturday and at the Sunday A League at Santa Cruz River Park DGC. Thanks to our intrepid Treasurer Mike W. and his merchandising team for their hard work in creating some really cool dry-fit shirts and rounding up sponsors to help fund them. (NOTE: Those who ordered XXL or XXXL shirts are asked to please bring $2 extra to cover extra cost.)
The Lockdown at the Rock, hosted March 22-23 by Marana Disc Golf Club, is officially full, TD Chad M reports. He has started a waiting list and is asking anyone registered who decides not to play to cancel for a refund by March 8. You can get on the wait list at the PDGA registration page.
Meanwhile, the Dynamic Discs Chasing the Chains Tour will bring its 2-disc Challenge again to Santa Cruz River Park DGC on Monday, March 24, says Steve-O Storrie, Chasin’ the Chains Tour Director. Tentatively the same deal as last year, 2 DD discs for $20, then you play a round (flex-time teeoffs you get a group together and play anytime from noon to 4 pm) with those discs and top three in each division gets paid out in merch.

Tucson Disc Golf Club members are urged to come out to Groves Park this Saturday, Jan. 25, 9am-1pm, to help with Tucson Clean & Beautiful’s Operation Cleanup day at the park. TDGA Pres. and Groves Park DGC course pro Chad Cassett has been working hard on improving the park and creating partnerships with organizations like TC&B. The board would like all TDGA club members to stop by and help for any time you can. And after the trash is hauled off, a disc golf game will likely break out.
In other club business, the TDGA board will meet this Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Sky Bar on Fourth Ave. Any member is welcome to attend, but discussion is limited to agenda items. If you’d like to speak to the board about an agenda item or just give an officer your views to convey, let a board member know. Here’s the AGENDA, also posted on the Board page off the About the Club page.
The 2014 Tucson Ice Bowl Disc Golf Tournament raised A RECORD $2,713 for the Community Food Bank, as a RECORD 72 players bought a RECORD $1,280 worth of mulligans, according to the final count (an anticipated sponsorship estimated at $200 was not renewed). Special thanks to all who bought mullligans and especially James S and Scott C who couldn’t play but pushed the mulligan count with big contributions. James bought everyone’s first mulligan, then Scott came and tossed a Benjamin into the pot. Not to be to be outdone, James topped that by a dollar. THANKS TO ALL WHO PLAYED, CONTRIBUTED AND WORKED TO MAKE THE ICE BOWL A SUCCESS.
Here’s a PDF with the player results, including round scores and mulligans. Sorry for the delay, it took hours to type in.
