Another year of disc golf has nearly ended and the holiday season has come and gone. Just because the holidays are gone doesn’t mean we should forget about giving to others. As part of the wonderful tradition of charity the PDGC and TinLid Disc Golf will be holding the annual Ice Bowl Disc Golf Tournament. Like last year we will be collecting money and food donations to support the Kawartha Food Share’s ongoing efforts to help those in need.
While the goal of raising cash and collecting food for the Kawartha Food Share remains the same there are some changes to the tournament this year. First the tournament will be held earlier in the winter, this year’s Ice Bowl is February 6th, 2016. Secondly, the Ice Bowl will be hosted at the TinLid Disc Golf Course in Keene. This is a fabulous piece of property which should offer a truly authentic Ice Bowl experience with it’s thick woods and open meadows. You might even want to bring your toboggan, there are some big hills. We’ll be putting down a custom tournament layout to help with the winter conditions. It’s going to be amazing.
We will again have a warm lunch included with your tournament fee and food donations, along with various snacks and coffee. This is private property so we may be able to have bonfires going to keep warm. The easy access to electricity, water, shelter, and dare I say a heated washroom is going to help make this year’s tournament better than ever.
As hosts, the PDGC and TinLid will be working hard to organize a great inaugural event at this new course. We always have a fabulous table of prizes donated from our club members and generous sponsors. Please sign up early so we can do our very best to plan for the event.
February 6th is only two weeks away!
The specific details of the day are to be finalized but it is safe to assume we:
will be starting early, registration starting around 8:30 am…
are playing two rounds of disc golf
are having a warm lunch around the fire in between,
doing some winter disc challenges for prizes weather and time permitting
awarding the winners and giving prizes to many,
collecting cash and money for a great cause while having a great time
Entry fee will be $20. Food donations are not required but are always welcome! We can take payment in advance, either at DieHard league or via PayPal. All levels of play are welcome. This is a fun and fundraising event first, a good excuse to play in disc golf in the snow second and a competition third.
Getting a sense of attendance numbers will really help us plan the day, lunch in particular. Please sign up either by confirming attendance through our Facebook event page, or using our tournament post found on Disc Golf Ontario.
