William "Bill" Geibel PDGA #12536

The Lancaster Area Frisbee Sports Club would like to nominate William Geibel for the Pa. DIsc Golf Hall of Fame.  Not only has Bill been involved in the sport since the late 1980s, he has been instrumental in the growth of the local Club (Lancaster Area Frisbee Sports, or LAFS), the growth and improvement of the area courses, and the growth of the sport on both the local and national levels.  He has participated in the creation of several of the area’s original courses, helped create and run the local leagues, and oversaw countless tournaments and fundraisers over the course of more than 25 years.  However, his most outstanding achievement, and the one for which he deserves the most recognition, is his selfless dedication to the maintenance of the local courses.  Many evenings will find Bill on a local course fairway, string trimmer in hand, cutting back the weeds from around the trees and teepads and baskets where the park mowers could not go; or wrestling a brush grinder through the rough to make errant shots easier to find; or crawling through the knee-deep mud on the bottom of a pond, retrieving discs that could be returned (often as the result of a call or a text from Bill).  Bill’s tireless devotion to the sport - often in ways that most players avoid - makes him a perfect candidate for induction into the Pa. Disc Golf Hall of Fame.
