Dear Disc Golf Enthusiast,

For a course like Tyler the work needed is never done, and there are always small and big things that need to be accomplished. Sometime it is as simple as going around the course and cleaning up, other times it is a huge undertaking like building a 36 foot long bridge. Currently we have a great core group of people who on a fairly regular basis help out and make Tyler what it is, one AWESOME course, but we are getting to the point were we could use a few good ‘extra hands’. So if you would like to help out and volunteer please contact Rex Hay () who will be more than willing to make sure your name is on a list for ‘Grounds Keeper Willy’ so when that next project comes up, we can call you.

The other aspect of our plea is, while the Park has been more than generous in their support of the club and their supply of materials, it is inevitable that there are expenses outside their ability to help, such as the need to purchase 90 brand new locks to secure the baskets. Again, we have a great core of people who help out with cash donations, but those monies are tight and we know there a lot of people out there that enjoy the course, and remember, they enjoy it at no cost. How about donating a few dollars to help us keep Tyler one of the PREMIER courses in North America? Think of it this way, some people spend $40 – $100 to go and play that other form of golf, and that’s only one round, why not spend $5, $10, or even $100 and enjoy playing all year long, as many rounds as you can possible. Every dollar that is donated will go into a fund just for course work none will be diverted to events or payouts.

Sincerely,
BCDGA Cabinet
