New members were elected to the SoCal Disc Golf Association’s board at the year-end banquet held at Prado Regional Park. San Diego disc golfer Randy Wylot was elected as President for 2012. Randy is a long-time disc golfer and freestyler and has been active for the past several years with the San Diego Aces Disc Golf Club, serving capably as Vice President for the past few years. If you play Chavez Ridge or other courses in the northern L.A. area, you probably know Steve Valencia, SoCal’s new Vice President. Steve has been jumping into the T.D. role of late (he’s the man for the Ice Bowl in Paradise) and is involved with the new Legacy Discs. Huntington Beach Pro Grandmaster Tom Clickner was elected Treasurer of SoCal for 2012, and promises to bring his enthusiasm and zest for disc golf to the club’s financial books.
Bill Maury-Holmes of Redlands, alum of La Canada High and Oak Grove DGC is SoCal’s new Secretary. Bill is the “Lead Instigator” of the Golden Sombrero Series of Ice Bowls and father of hot-shot junior players Samuel and Joel. Suzette Simons, who has almost single-handedly (with big, big, big help from Vicky Wisecup!) held SoCal together for the past several years will continue to serve the club as Membership Director, making sure everyone gets their numbered bagtags and sweet new Innova plastic. Allen Risley of San Marcos and the San Diego Aces was elected to the post of Communications Director and will be coordinating the various ways SoCal spreads the word about disc golf and writing web page content (like this). Rhett Stroh, also a former SoCal President, has agreed to continue to calculate the SoCal Series points, quite possibly because no one else knows how he does it. Richard Ascheri has also agreed to continue helping with some of SoCal’s web issues (yay!). These folks are all serving as volunteers and appreciate any help and feedback you can supply. Elected board members have contact info on the “Contact Us” page, where we hope we will soon have some bios.
