Ice Bowl regs coming in

Thanks to all who have signed up early. 28 spots to go. Hopefully this snow we just got will stick around for a month or so!

Some of the food we collected last year:

Ice Cube Open registration open!

Registration has opened for the Ice Cube Open Ice Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 30! This is our fourth Ice Bowl and it keeps growing every year.

This year we are trying a doubles event with a twist. Six holes will be best disc, 6 holes will be worst disc, and 6 holes will be alternate shot. Sound good? Great, now go grab a partner and sign up!

Great event for new players
This is a casual, fun event and is a good one for golfers who have never played in a tournament before. The emphasis is on raising money and food donations for the Loaves and Fishes, but if you end up winning, you'll go home with a fun trophy and stories of glory to tell the family.

We will also have some cool CTPs prizes (donations welcomed) and we'll be hosting an Apres ICO pizza party at the store where you can warm up and fill up before heading home.

Disc Grab Bag Returns!
Because the Disc Grab Bag was so successful in raising extra money for the L&F last year, we're doing it again. Bring $5 and a new or gently-used disc and throw it in the box. We'll pick a few winners at random and who knows, you may go home with a bunch of new-to-you discs in our raffle! Last year two guys went home with over 10 discs each. Not bad for a 5 buck investment, eh?

If you'd like to donate a prize, chip in a few bucks for the Apres ICO pizza party, or just contribute to the charity, email me. Thanks and see you at the Ice Cube!

Date change! ICO is now Sunday Jan 30

We've decided to move the Ice Cube Open up a week to Sunday, Jan. 30. There are two other Ice Bowls in the area scheduled for our original date and I thought it was silly to have three on the same day. Plus the Farmer's Almanac says there's going to be a snowstorm that weekend.

We are also changing the format to 666 doubles. That's six holes of best disc, 6 holes of the other team selecting your lie, and 6 holes of alternate throws. I've been wanting to try this for a few years now and think it'll be fun!

Registration should be opening withing the week.

Ice Cube Open Ice Bowl date set


The date for our fourth Ice Cube Open Ice Bowl has been set for Sunday, Jan 30. This year's charity will once again be the Devens Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry.

Last year, 55 golfers raised over $1100 and donated 330 pounds of food to the food pantry. Let's crush that record this year!

Registration will probably open in late December, so keep your eyes and ears open for more details!

Thank you, voters!

Another landslide victory! I was re-elected as MA rep for the New England Flying disc Association (NEFA). It's hard to lose when you are the only one running, but I did get 22 votes which is 21 more than I thought I'd get!

But seriously, thank you for voting for me. I appreciate the support.

If you have any questions about disc golf in New England, or MA specifically, feel free to ask me. Becoming a NEFA member is a great way to help support your local and regional courses. Look for a new membership drive to begin early in 2011. The past several years we have had 2-for-1 deals, so don't miss out.

If you'd like to support disc golf on the national level, you can also join the PDGA. If you use my PDGA # 23492 as a referral before the end of the year, Devens Disc Golf Course will receive $5!
