Here are the latest updates from Rick Rothstein about this weekend’s Ice Bowl event. We’d also like to get a ‘crock pot’ count for the chili contest. If you’re planning on bringing chili let us know in the comments below or contact Rick at Disc Golf World.
25th Annual KC Ice Bowl Updates For This Weekend
Thanks to the 150+ players who have already signed up for this weekend’s 25th Annual Kansas City Ice Bowl. At the end of this post is a list of the people who are playing on Saturday.
Just a quick reminder of how the Kansas City Ice Bowl works…
The main purpose of the event is to have fun and to raise some money to help fight hunger in Kansas City. Towards this end, at least $8 of each entry goes to our charities–Harvesters and Bishop Sullivan. We also raise charitable funds by selling mulligans which can be used during the first round. We also raise money on Sunday with the lunchtime Closet-to-the-Pin Contest. Donated prizes for this event include, so far, a DISCatcher Traveler Portable Target, a two-tone PDGA Bag, hockey tickets, a disc golf bag, and discs. We’re hopeful that players will be donating other items.
Some good news is that there will be beer available at Ice Bowl again this year on Sunday, thanks to Bucky and the 23rd Street Brewery. A small donation, earmarked for our charities, will be requested.
We’re hopeful that Sunday’s chili contest will once again feed everyone. Please bring some chili. It’s free to enter the contest and you might even win a prize. If chili is not your thing, side dishes and desserts are always welcome. The Kansas City Flying Disc Club will be providing soft drinks. crackers and chips, and utensils and bowls.
There is competition at Ice Bowl, and here’s how it works…
Those who want to play the second round with a chance to win a disc, must post an 18-hole score from either Saturday or Sunday morning. We will sort the scores from low to high, and put players on cards for the final nine. Both the top and bottom courses will be used. The player with the best 27-hole score on each card will win a disc. The player with the best 27-hole score overall will be the KC Ice Bowl Champion and will add his name to the traveling trophy that he’ll keep for the year.
As in year’s past, we’re expecting 300-400 players to be involved with Ice Bowl. We encourage you to preregister before 5 p.m. on Friday at Disc Golf World. We can also take your registration over the phone at 816.471.3472.
Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend. The weather forecast is pretty sweet: partly cloudy and temps in the upper 30s to low 42s. The usual Ice Bowl rules apply. The event will not be postponed because of weather. No wimps and whiners are allowed, and there are excuses for not supporting the KC Ice Bowl.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
