Thanks for the replies. Glad its easy. I will bring an extra few bucks in case I chuck my disc into a watery grave (especially my Valkyrie.) Will bring my "will werk 4 disks" sign as well in case of begging. The toughest place I have played is Banklick. It was fun. Played it with a friend (he might be at the tournament as well) on a 10 degree day. Threw one disc all the way to the bottom to the creek. Thankfully the creek was frozen so as to aid retrieval. Looking forward to it. Looking forward to learning as well but most of all having fun. I have too many things in my life that are serious. This will not be one of them in that sense.

I have a question for you. Suppose that someone only plays 2 of the events and miraculously ends up with the most points. What would come of that? I understand that they couldn't be the series champion from your flier, but could they get second by default? Or get accreditted with any place at all? I know it's not likely, but I was just wondering. Also, if no one in a particular division is able to play all three events, would you declare anyone the series champion?

I know someone who was series champ for the one event she played in.

In general, you have to play all three to be the Champion. I have, in the past, made an exception - that's when I have the prize/disc/trophy already ordered. To be eligible for the Series prizes you must have competed in all three.

Oh and just a reminder - everyone go through your closets and get those clothes you haven't worn for years outta there! You're not going to wear them and we all know it. So help out someone who will really enjoy it. Also, if you have gotten any pledges for the Icebowls, please bring the pledge $ to the finale at Idlewild/Boone. We're still taking any and all contributions of $, clothing, non-perishable food. You can bring it to the finale, mail it, or stop by the store.

Don't throw new(that you haven't gotten used to) plastic at a tournament anyhow. Unless you provide a shrubbery and cut down the largest tree in the forest with a herring... where did they go?

BTW, is anybody traveling from the Eastside to the IdleBoone Ice Bowl? I live in Anderson near Five Mile if you can give me a ride.

Yeah I won't use it unless I have to. I got it today b/c it was in the used bin at DnD and it was a Wraith (which I kind of was looking to maybe get) and the price was right.

Thanks for the Grail line.

Looking at the weather. Supposed to get a little more ice tonight into Sat. morn I was wondering how that plays out as far as the Ice Bowl tomorrow. Is it a get there if you can deal or should I be looking for any kind of delay of the start or cancellation if it comes to that?

It should be fine by Midnight. No whimps, no whiners. The ice layer on top of the snow will help keep the discs visible when we throw so this ice storm(LOL) is fantastic news. Anybody from the Eastside that can give me a ride? Dave Cox, Pete?

Thanks to all that are going through your closet and pantry to bring stuff out to Idlewild tomorrow for Fairhaven.
Mr. David Hammers, the executive director of Fairhaven Rescue Mission, told me he would be at the player's meeting at Idlewild to say a few words on behalf of Fairhaven and collect the stuff. I also exchanged emails with people at the Enquirer and Community Press & Recorder and they said they will try to get someone out there.

Taking a little bit of time to look around for stuff you might no longer need, can go a long ways to help those in need.
Thanks in advance.

Jokerman - wasn't trying to play a joke on you. Wasn't even thinking about the color of the disc at the time. Good disc, good price - no good for snow. As for the weather, like finn said we play no matter what and we stick to the schedule as much as possible. I think we delayed the start a couple of years ago for a few minutes when there was a serious accident on the highway. Anyway, no wimps or whiners, just check your closets, food pantries and wallets for any extras. Can't wait to see the total on that "BIG CHECK". I know of one person who has gotten some nice pledges. Remember, there's a prize for the most pledges and actual money received for pledges. Bring it tomorrow and we'll see who wins. 1stplace

We will have one round at Idlewild, lunch, 2nd round at Boone and then go to Gold Star for the awards.

Thanks Dan for running great Ice Bowl events over the years.
Just want to say thanks to all that brought out clothes and stuff for Fairhaven, Saturday at Idlewild. I was talking to David Hammers, the executive director of Fairhaven, while you folks were signing up this morning explaining disc golf, showing him different discs, explaining how tournaments are run, about the GCFDA, and the PDGA and he was overwhelmed. He couldn't believe the turnout and the fact that not only were you, as a disc golf community, getting out in the elements to play the sport we all love, but to contribute part of the proceeds to help those we don't even know in need, meant a lot to him and Fairhaven.
I do believe the club and sport of disc golf is sure to get some positive word of mouth publicity from David Hammers and Fairhaven after this mornings event.
I was more than happy to collect & drop off stuff, get in touch with him to line up Fairhaven to say a few words at the player's meeting, but again I thank you folks for doing all the work by participating and making a difference in other people's lives.
On another note, I did get a message from the editor at the Enquirer/Community Press & Recorder letting me know their reporter wasn't able to get out to the course today, however after talking with her, she said I could write a bit for them, provide a picture, and they would publish it. I'll get that done and advise.

Of course, me being the wimp and not wanting to do the ice dance with my heel spur today, I didn't play. What was the low and high number put up out at icy Idlewild today?

clap Yes, it was something else having Dave Hammers there yesterday morning and telling us about Fairhaven - really got to me a little - and I've worked in that field myself for many years. I really appreciate him coming out and I hope everyone else did too. I'm sending out a big, big thanks to all who came out and played in any of the events, anyone who brought clothes or food - it was such a great feeling to present the "BIG CHECK" for $3066! Plus they loaded down Dave Hammers car with lots of bags of clothes. Brad Anderson raised $765 in pledges! - looks like he set the bar pretty high right off the bat there - a special thanks goes out to him and the people who pledged. I really can't say enough about how great it makes me feel to be a part of the GCFDA. This turned out to be much more than I ever imagined. It makes it worth it to be out there signing up people in the cold  the ice, the snow, whatever the conditions. We'll defintitely get some pics to send to the paper, to Dave Hammers and to put up on the site here. clap

I don't have the scores with me right now. I'll try to get that all up Monday or Tuesday along with a few more particulars.  The low score at Idlewild in some very crazy unique conditions was Dave Cox with a 57 - not sure of the high score. The first part of the round at Idlewild was ice all over - discs sliding forever, having to adjust for the slide, the crazy skips and all was just so much fun. Thanks to everyone who helped me with signups, scores, etc. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.

I know it takes a while after the second round to get the days scores, prizes and then the Icebowl Krazy Series scores and prizes together so I thank everyone for their patience while at Gold Star - atleast you were able to warm up a little - well, actually a lot - it was hot in there!  Great turnout at Gold Star though - hopefully we can work it into some more sponsorship.

Please post any thoughts on this event you may have: funny things that happened yesterday, your thoughts on the series as a whole, ideas on ways to improve for next year, any criticisms, anything at all. Thanks again to everyone.
