        So... this isn't a tournament? Just another World's Biggest type event?

        Saves me some money... but it is too bad we won't have a proper Ice Bowl this year. Not that I don't appreciate your efforts, Murray... it just won't be the same without the competition that would draw Feldberg, Jenkins, Sprague, etc...
        ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

          My understanding of an Ice Bowl is that it is charitable first, and a good time second. Not everything has to be a competition...or does it?

              Everything must be a competition. Yeah... that's exactly what I was saying, Justin.

              This will be a different Ice Bowl from years past. Not saying one is better than the other but - for me - the draw of the competition that brought Feldberg, Jenkins, Sprague, Papa and others from distant locales is what made Ice Bowls of the past very cool.

              I mean, sure... we could use a World's Ice Biggest Extravaganza Bowl.

                Then what is holding you back from running an Ice Bowl like years past?

                  What the heck is a "proper" Ice Bowl?
                  Do you think it was only the competition that drew Dave and Ave?
                  Or are you just being a rebel because Miller is involved?
                  Ice Bowls started out (1988) similar to other tourney's and then for the last 12 years or so, the emphasis (for the most part) has been on fun and charity.
                  It might not "be the same" for you Sam, but it might be for the peeps benefiting from IB charity gigs.
                  Personally I'd rather hand over a $500 check to a food bank than watch Dave and Ave compete.

                    WOW!!!

                    Taking "Thread-Jacking" to a new level. Way to put your best foot forward in the name of Charity!


                    Back to the topic at hand....

                    Sounds like a good event. Hope we can come together and have a fun day and put together a nice denation for the Food Bank. As it's not a highly cometative atmosphere, my wife and brother inlaw or some other friends may be interested in playing this event. Thanks for making something happen Murray & Co.

                      Wow... it is kind of sad that one cannot express their opinion - and state it as such - without getting hammered for it. Thread-jacking? Am I not talking about the ice bowl?

                      Gawain ran the best Ice Bowls bar none. A fly mart. High level of competition. Fun games and side activities. Good food. Oh... and fun and chatiry (sic) were there, too. It sounds like all of these things (except maybe the chatiry and fun) will be missing from this year's event which is why I stated that I am disappointed and will not be attending.

                      Yes, Jerry Miller's involvement will also help to keep me away as I am not interested in supporting the cancer in our community, but this was secondary or tertiary in my decision.

                            Which charity is IB benefiting this year?

                            I like that it is at Timber this year, sounds fun.
