31 hardy disc golfers came out to the first in the series of Icebowls on Saturday January 9, 2010 at Harbin Disc Golf Course in Fairfield, Ohio. Dan Bayless and Jeff Eades were the tourney's TD's. It was a great day for an Icebowl with temperatures hovering around 19-22°, 4-5 inches of snow on the ground and a few flurries throughout the day. The wind wasn't much of a factor at 7-10 mph. It really wasn't all that cold once you started moving around and playing. There were a few lost discs, but not many. To help with the cold Fishnet Dave Gambrell got us a good fire going with Fairfield Parks, Fishnet Dave and Dan Bayless providing the firewood. A really nice fire kept us good and warm all day - that is while we were next to it anyway. I think the sledders who were there in droves, also liked the fire we had going as there was always a group hanging around the fire. Thanks to Phil Miller and Drew Miller for helping with the scores and anyone else who pitched in.
We had 31 participants in 5 divisions, Open, Pro Masters/Grandmasters, Advanced, Advanced Masters/Grandmasters and Novice. Dave Cox took the Open with a hot score of 92. Jeff Eades won Pro Masters/Grandmasters with a 99, Lawrence Justice took Advanced shooting a 105, Tony Lampert won Advanced Masters/Grandmasters with a score of 112 and the Novice division winner was Brady Barnett shooting 113. Congratulations to all the winners of the first 2010 Icebowl.
There were no aces on the day, with the ace pot at $48. If there are no aces, the ace pot will roll over to the next Icebowl. If at the end of the 3 Icebowls we haven't had any aces, we will have a throw-off for a CTP split-the-pot. The CTP winner will split the pot with Fairhaven Rescue Mission. We had a CTP Split-the-Pot for the day also and Fishnet Dave won that with $28 going to Dave and $28 going to Fairhaven. We will do this at each Icebowl. We are using an Innova Discatcher Traveler for these CTP's and we will raffle that basket off with any proceeds after the cost of the basket going to Fairhaven. Raffle tickets are $1 each, 6 for $5.
As a fundraiser event, $5 of each entry goes to Fairhaven and mulligans were sold $1 each, maximum 3 per round for a total of 6 on the day, so for this Icebowl we raised with entries, mulligans, CTP split-the-pot and extra donations, a total of $370. That's a good start, but we will have to pick it up a bit if we are to reach our goal of $4000.
The second in the series is at Boone Woods on January 23, 2010. Signup early, get some friends or co-workers to sponsor you and help the GCFDA to reach its goal of $4000 raised for Fairhaven Rescue Mission.
