The lady responsible for bringing the first disc golf course to the Evansville area at USI has passed away. Honorary Lifetime Member, Ruth Waller, Lady Ace Eagle #1 died Saturday from complications due to a stroke. For those of us that knew her, she was a passionate advocate of the sporting events at USI, she organized and helped sponsor many of the early premier disc golf events that we all enjoy today. Those events include the 1st Evansville Summer Series, the Pumpkin Shootout, the Ice Bowl and many other disc golf tournaments including USI’s own intramural disc golf programs and sending one of the first team of players to the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships.
Our prayers go out to her family and our Ace Eagle family will miss her too!
