Default Supporting UToledo disc golf to Nationals

Good afternoon folk,

I'm not sure if this is appropriate, it doesn't seem to violate the forum guidelines, but I just wanted to bring this to the attention of some disc golfers to help out my team. This past Sunday Rocket Disc Golf, the team representing the University of Toledo, unexpectedly qualified for Collegiate Nationals. We drove 3 hours up to Central Michigan's home battlegrounds and played well enough for second place, getting a bid thanks to another team being qualified already. This was a bit of a surprise for us.

Aaron Chelchowski #56221, our team captain/club president, has spent countless hours this past year (from last spring semester onward) jumping through numerous organizational hoops at the University - from developing a constitution, to funding things until the University could get behind us, to recruitment and developing practice situations for us at indoor facilities during winter. As much as I'm a part of the team - I'd love more than anything to get him there. He deserves a reward for his work.

The university is going to be tough to work with on short notice, we need to be certain of our ability to compete by March 11th (which means being funded - I for one as a team member can't afford to spare a dime). The University is on spring break at the moment which further exacerbates the situation. So we're hoping to get this publicly funded.

So far we're off to a good start, we've reached over 600 dollars of our GoFundMe in a few days. We're hopeful that we can get all the way there. If anybody would care to help or has a few dollars to spare, I know we're not the most important thing in the world to put your money toward - but we'd truly appreciate it. We hope to start something that will result in an annually competitive team, this would be big for developing a real recruitment plan on campus toward that end.

Thanks for your time, thanks for reading if you made it this far. Have an awesome spring.

I threw in $5. Not a ton, but a good number of small donations will add up. Best of luck.

You just paid for Ryan Rau's gatorade/water for one day. Every little bit counts!

My mathematical OCD couldn't leave that as anything but a 5 or a 0 at the end. I had to correct it


In for Zones. Jawbreakers.

Hey there, we are definitely doing alum memberships. And if you're local that means access to the indoor training facility during the winter to go throw. We were indoor at Fetterman every Friday night all winter throwing rips and playing putting games.

PM me your contact info and I'll pass it on to Aaron!
