Board Election Results!

user avatar Posted by Marsha Sonderfan on 11/12/2014 at 11:11 am
Every fall we have elections for club board members. The current board consists of:
Jay Burghardt (Secretary)
Camden Farmer* (Vice President)
Chad Francis*
Kyle Harrigan
Alex Johnson*
Rob Liebman
Gail Pace
Marsha Sonderfan
Mike Storrs
David Straight* (Treasurer)
Ray Woodruff (President)

Those marked with asterisks above hold terms that expire at the end of this year. Alex Johnson will not be continuing as a board member, and we thank him for his contributions to the lively discussions this year! Chad Francis will be transitioning from a full voting board member position to an At-large board member position so that he may continue serving as our super fantastic webmaster.

The board voted to nominate Camden Farmer and Dave Straight for re-election, which they both accepted. We received one nomination for Josh Kreutzer to join the board. 

With less nominations than open board positions, Camden, Dave and Josh are all automatically given positions for the next term, beginning January 1. We will have one open board member position. There is no election necessary. A huge thanks to Josh for stepping up, and we look forward to working with you!


Joe Haman Memorial Fund

user avatar Posted by Mike Storrs on 11/11/2014 at 05:11 pm
On October 3, 2014 the Mile High Disc Golf community suffered a tragic loss when club member Joe Haman was killed in a motorcycle accident in the hills west of Denver.

Joe was a big part of laying the foundation for what we all enjoy today. He was tournament director of Spring Fling prior to Marsha Sonderfan, was responsible for the redesign of Interlocken East course and served on the Board of Directors of MHDGC. Most of all, he was an Ambassador for the game and the club.

In his honor, the club has donated $200 to the Joseph Haman fund that will help support his twin daughters Ashley and Elizabeth. If you would like to make a donation as well please visit www.josephhaman.org Here you can share your stories, pictures and help monetarily.

Rest In Peace Joe


Winter Warriors X

user avatar Posted by Jeff McCormack on 09/06/2014 at 10:09 pm
With all of this year's interesting weather, I'm sure that most of you have been wondering "When does that Winter Warrior series start?"
Well, wonder no more!  We're excited to be kicking off the 10th annual season of the fundraising disc golf double series.  As this is the 10th season, naturally our goal for the year is $10,000 raised for the Food Bank of the Rockies!  The Food Bank can create 4 meals out of every dollar donated.  Let's help the Food Bank provide 40,000 meals for those in need!  In the past 9 years, this event has raised almost $49,000!  Let's keep it going strong!  We've got 13 great weeks lined up on the awesome disc golf courses along the front range.  We'll be coming to a course near you very soon!

This year's weekly series will begin November 1st, 2014 at Colorado Heights University - This will be the last organized event at this course. It will be pulled at the end of the calendar year.  All players will need to pre-register for this event on the MHDGC website.  The cost to play is $5.00 (not including small Paypal fee).  If you're purchasing a Season Pass, there will be an option to let us know that you plan on playing CHU.  If you're not purchasing a Season Pass, please register for CHU on the WWX Kick-Off @ CHU event page.  

Weekly donation is $5 per person to play. ALL PROCEEDS NOT SPENT ON PRIZES WILL BE DONATED TO THE FOOD BANK OF THE ROCKIES!!! 
Format will be random draw doubles, best shot with a small twist... double birdies!  
Double birdies - Both players drive and select the best shot.  If both players make birdie from that spot they score a -2 for that hole.  If one player hits an ace their partner can still get a birdie to go -3 on the hole.  Two aces count as -4.  Get some!!!  
Just to keep everyone guessing, the tournament hosts will modify several holes prior to start time!  Watch out for alternate shot, worst shot, putter/driver only holes, mini hole, forehand only, disc swaps and more! This is going to be fun!!!
Weekly winners will each receive a Winter Warrior bag tag with the series logo, date and location.  Series winners (top 10 men and top 5 women) will receive trophies.
Series winners and places will be determined by totaling the players' top 6 weekly scores.  The more you play, the more chances you have at bettering your score!
We will be offering both a Men's and a Women's division with prizes for the top group in each and maybe a prize for the #1 finisher in each division if we can swing it.
Weekly participation is not required.  For those that are hearty enough to attend all 13 weeks, they will receive a "Winter Warrior" trophy for making them all.  

There will be a weekly ace pool for $1 per week.  Ace pool winners will receive 50% of the pool.  The remaining 50% will be donated to the Food Bank of the Rockies fund. Dollars will carry over from week to week.  CTP throws for donated prizes are $1 per throw immediately following each round.  
Please let us know if you have something to donate... discs, game tickets, ski passes, etc.  It is for a great cause!  New this year: Mulligans for sale!  You can purchase up to two mulligans to use during the round (1 for $3 or 2 for $5).  Use 'em or lose 'em as you can only use them for that week's round.  You can share with your partner if you would like.  

We're again excited to offer a WW Season Pass!  The Season Pass costs $60 and will gain you entry into each week of Winter Warriors, a WWX Season Pass bag tag, a free CTP throw each week,priority registration into the kick-off at CHU and a WWX custom designed item like a hat, disc or tee shirt.  If you purchase a WWX Season Pass, you do not have to participate in each week, but should you choose to participate in any week, you're all paid up! (does not include Ace Pool entries or bonus events to be announced later).  Season Passes can be purchased any week during the WWX season, though we recommend buying early to maximize your savings. To purchase a WWX Season Pass, just register and pay via the MHDGC website just as you would for any MHDGC tournament. We will also accept cash at any of the Winter Warrior events.  

Take note, Season Pass holders will receive priority registration for the seasons first event at Colorado Heights University.
The field will be limited to 126 players and we do expect it to fill.  Once 126 players have registered, a wait list will be created.  You won't want to miss out on this super fun round at CHU!


Thanks for your support!
Jeff McCormack & Ray Woodruff
