2015 BRAWL Season

Ice Bowl 2015


Welcome to a new season of disc golf in the Charlottesville area. Thanks to everybody who participated in the recent Ice Bowl, which I will wrap up briefly before touching on some other club matters. We had 37 members, some new, and some old, sign up for this year’s event, and 35 of those members played in the Ice Bowl. We donated 106 pounds of food, and $1,022 to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, so well done to everybody for such great participation, and way to buy those mulligans!

Congratulations to the BRDGC 2015 Ice Bowl Champion Steve Riley, and the Chili Cook-Off winner (again!), Sebring Smith. Well done, fellas!


Also, Ben Heilberg went big game hunting on hole 9 in the first round and bagged himself an ace, taking down a cool $111 from the ace pot for his efforts…nice shot, Ben!


Here are your 2015 BRDGC club officers – President: Mark Hawking, Secretary: Brian Sward, Treasurer: David Vance, Greene County Course Coordinator: Peter Vines, Meadow Creek Course Coordinator: Steve Riley, Walnut Creek Course Coordinator: Sebring Smith


Thanks again to everybody who participated and made this event possible. We couldn’t have made the 2015 Ice Bowl happen without you.


Briefly, here is some other club business on the horizon. Doubles will begin in few weeks, Tuesday, March 10, at Walnut Creek, at approximately 5:15 pm as we typically try to start a few minutes earlier the first month or so. More news will come on the doubles front the closer we get to play.


The club store is being divided between Hawk, Brian Sward, and Steve Riley, hopefully to cover your disc golfing needs more frequently. Discs available in the club store include:


DX Aviar, Shark, Roc, Stingray, Teebird, Leopard

Pro: JK Aviar, KC Flat Top Roc

Champion: Destroyer, Boss, Ryno, Mamba

Star: Katana, Teebird, Valkyrie


Work will continue at Meadow Creek, as scheduled, into the near future, until we are finished there.


Lastly, I’ve had a few members inquire about receiving instruction of some kind to improve their games. If anybody is interested in getting instruction, or helping out your fellow club members with some tips, please let me know and we’ll look to put something together.


Any questions or comments on club matters please contact Hawk: diegobucki@yahoo.com


Happy Flying!

HELP NEEDED:  NEW Course in Waynesboro from club member Chris Faunce:

Breaking  news: Central VA disc golfers will have  another course to play by Tax Day.


I have been working with the Waynesboro Parks and Rec on a  course at Coyner Springs Park Just  3 minutes off 1-64 at exit 94


Coyner Springs park will open as a 9 hole par 30 course with cement tees and good deal of elevation and a mix  of open and wooded holes. The course  will have the ability to become a par 64 18 course with two sets of tees in the future.


As with  most disc golf courses a grassroots effort will be needed to get the course done on time.
