We had 129 people play in EDGC Ice Bowl 2013 and for the most part it seemed like everyone had a really good time. We gave away two baskets, over $400 in CTP prizes and over $1600 raffle prizes thanks to our generous sponsors.
We raised 316 pounds of food and $3200 for FOOD For Lane County. With a donor matching all cash contributions to FFLC in February, the impact of our donation will be doubled to $6400, or enough for FFLC to provide 19,200 meals. That is something that we all can be proud of.
There is simply no way to pull off an event like this without the dedicated help of many people and the support and participation of all the players.
Ralph Huntoon brought all the TC gear: the amplifier, mic, generator, heaters, tables, shelter, plus baskets and more stuff and had it all set up by 7 am and helped with other stuff throughout the day.
Jim Johnson designed and printed the awesome players booklet out of his own pocket, brought his rolling command center, computer and printer and handled registration, scores and everything else I threw at him throughout the day. Doing disc golf events for charity, specifically FFLC, was Jim's brainchild which he started with the Food Toss in 2008 or so. It was Jim's idea in 2011 to hold an Ice Bowl, and only his good sense prevented him from taking the lead in organizing it. I think these events are a very, very good thing for our club to do on many levels and we have Jim to thank.
Tobiah Moshier not only crawled out of his death bed to photograph the Ice Bowl and help with everything all day long, he also donated a massive amount of high quality prizes for the raffle, and provided me with encouragement and moral support throught the planning and execution of the event.
Cloud Pemble came out with me the day before to set-up the temp holes and tee signs, and again early the next day to set up baskets, distribute easter eggs, run the basket toss contest, break down the temp course and everything else we needed.
Rex Snellstrom joined me and Cloud on Friday setting things up and brought pizza for lunch. Rex helped with everything on Saturday, brought baskets, cookies, and other stuff and stayed until the bitter end, even taking a wayward disc golfers bag to Capella for safekeeping. Rex also donated $50 (and was rewarded with a float trip) and brought in a $100 donation from Capella Market.
Jesse Grasseth helped me design and test the temp holes, sold raffle tickets, brought dessert and helped with everything during the day.
Will Larson brought in sponsorship from several sponsors worth several hundred dollars, and helped me find others. He brought baskets and dessets, sold tickets, helped set up, and ran the basket toss contest. All with a baby just about ready to pop out and rock his world.
Jesse Everett's baby did pop out and although he was otherwise occupied on Saturday his help making the map for the temp holes was invaluable and I'm still thankful for the help he gave me last year at the Ice Bowl when I was in way over my head.
Gene Fackler, Ian Goldberg, Erik Smith, Rebecca Duffy and many others helped throughout the set up, with sponsorship and/or during the Ice Bowl as well. My apologies if I left anyone out, rest assured I appreciate anything you did to help.
My heartfelt thank you to everyone who made the Ice Bowl a success.
