Volunteers needed for Family Fest; TDGA board to meet

 

Member Justin Andrews helps a little guy putt as Ashley encourages, during the 2015 Family Festival in the Park.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Tucson Parks and Rec has once again invited us to participate in its annual Family Festival in the Park on November 18th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Reid Park. Each local rec group sets up a booth and we’ve been doing this for several years, we set up a putting station and a few holes that have been pretty popular and it’s a great outreach to the community. It’s also a real hoot watching the little guys get excited to make a putt or drive it 100 feet..
In the past there’s just been a few of us, I’d like to get a crew of about 10 and we can have an early shift 9:30-noon with setup and then late shift noon-2-teardown so we all don’t have to commit to 4 hours. 
PLEASE consider donating a couple of hours of your time to this worthy endeavor. We’ve created a public FB group linked to the club page to coordinate, for now just chime in there with your interest and availability and we’ll set up a schedule in the next couple weeks.

The TDGA board is scheduled to meet Thursday Oct. 12 at 7 p.m., at Rusty’s Family Restaurant, 2075 W Grant Rd. An agenda is posted under Board Meetings.

 

Rillito DGC, Tucson’s newest course opens

Rillito River Disc Golf Course is open! Baskets are in at Rillito. Big thanks to course developer and TDGA board member Dave Shircore and Pima County for making this happen, and for all the folks who sponsored baskets and came out to help install baskets. The course is still a little rough and mosquitos are a challenge, but the course and the bugs will break in and we’ll be looking to add teepads and signage.

The course is north off Ruthrauff Road just east of La Cholla Blvd, just as the road turns there is a driveway with a low concrete Rillito River Park sign (mostly visible coming from the east just as the road straightens, it’s a driveway that also has a Dead End 100 ft. sign, drive back and you’ll run into the parking lot. While we’re working on hole signage, there is a main sign you can snap a pic of. Teepads are marked by bricks in the ground – yellow for A, green for B, orange for C.  There are no lights (this is a dawn to dusk park) nor water but the county plans on installing a porta jon.
