2018 Ace Member of the Year: Marc Lopez


Every year the Southern Maryland Disc Golf Association honors an Ace member in good standing, who has gone above and beyond their call of responsibility as an Ace member. As one of our most active participating Ace members within our club Marc Lopez has been traveling back and forth between Turkey Hill, Hot Shots and Sayburrs Edge logging more league rounds than anyone else for years.  He is also one of our most active tournament players, and he is always volunteering to help with club course work. To say Marc was long overdue for being recognized as Ace Member of the Year is a total understatement. Thanks, Marc, for everything you do for advancing the sport in our region, being a great competitor, person and friend to everyone in the club. Three cheers!

Ice Bowl Recap

This post is long overdue, Southern Maryland faithful. Huge shout out to everybody who came out in the bitter cold to support our event. 33 Disc golfers from all over Maryland and Virginia particapted in our 7th annual 2018 Southern Maryland Ice Bowl, held at Turkey Hill Park in LaPlata, MD on Janurary 15th.  This year we raised $1555 and 375 lbs of food for the Southern Maryland Food Bank. That brings our running total up to $12255 and 3250 lbs of food after all 7 years!!!   

A big thank you to Bion Inc, Sayburr Construction, and Fresh Start Mortgage Consulting for their support and contributions made.  Congrats to our winners: Trey Hamlet in Advanced. Mike Hart in Intermediate. Adam Neal in Beginner.  Congrats to Mike Seay for bringing the player-awarded Best Chili.

Let's do it again next year!  

Website Updates -- work in progress

Hi everybody. I found some time to work on this website a little bit and completed the membership section and most of the other sub pages.  There's still a lot more to do including adding a store front for our extra club discs and apparel. After this is all set up I hope to find a few club members to contribute to news updates and store management. Stay tuned!
