    My theory on what went down, regarding the artwork.

    Disc Golf World: Hey, you're a pretty good artist, right? Wanna do some artwork for our upcoming tournament?

    Artist: Sure, why not!

    DGW: It's called "The Ice Bowl," and it's a wintertime tournament.

    A: Cool, I've got some ideas....

    --time passes--

    A: Here you go!

    DGW: Ummm, it's an ice queen and an polar bear? With armor?

    A: It's a panserbjorne. You know, from "The Golden Compass."

    DGW: Ah.

    A: You don't like it?

    DGW: Well, it doesn't have very much to do with disc golf....

    A: Oh. Well, I can add a basket in the background. You could always photoshop a disc in the foreground if you want.

    DGW: Whatever. We've got to get this artwork out....


    In any case, nobody says that you have to do an Ice Bowl through DGW. Any charity tournament in the wintertime qualifies as an "Ice Bowl" in my opinion.

      Indeed, the logo is just a logo - no one has to use it or buy discs. Ice Bowl HQ does some really cool stuff to make these charity events happen - the artwork over the years is just one of thier strong points I think it has been the same artist for a while no?

      I've always just gone with ordering custom stamps from Innova or Discraft for Ice Bowl events and have still partnered with IBHQ to help the cause.

      No matter what the custom stamp is, I'm sure the Highbridge Ice Bowl will be a blast and if it raises $$$ for charity, you really can't get much better than that!

        Could be...in the few Ice Bowls I've been part of, I haven't gotten one of the "official" discs.

        I'm a little loopy after a crazy week at work, with a flaky overtime crust and was just having fun with the discussion at hand. No slight intended to the Ice Bowl, the artist, or the Spokane crew.

            So I was sitting with my friend Oliver S, when he read this post out loud It brought a tear to my old near sighted eyes. yada! yada! yada! Then, with almost Glenn Beck like pride I realized that my legacy is complete and all the rest is just gravy covering up a pile of ...

            The only TWO Ice Bowl requirements are:
            It has to fall between the middle of Jan to the end of Feb
            It has to benefit a local charity throught either food or cash donations

              Again, seconded. We play to support the charaties and the local clubs. I appreciate anyone who runs one.

                    Ice Bowl Prizes

                    The Ice Bowl Merchandise arrived yesterday afternoon.

                    Kevin moved #11 to the lower position so players won't need ice picks and climbing gear to play the hole.

                    Kevin and crew have been shoveling out the holes to make the course easier to walk.

                    We're working on getting supplies for the Chili Feed and the Race for the Case.

                    If anyone would like to pre-register they may print the entry form attached below and then give me a call.

                    I'll have a few Ice Bowl items out at 4 Mound on Saturday if anyone wants to look and/or buy something.

                    I've also attached a Sponsorship from for those that would like to sponsor the Ice Bowl.

                      Snow Blowers

                      As we get closer to the Ice Bowl date I'd like to see if there are any golfers out there that would help snow blow the course at Highbridge. I have an old Sears two stage blower but would like to get at least two more to help.

                      I would like to get set up for snow blowing on Feb. 3 & 4, 2011.

                      So if you have a snow blower and would like to help clear the course, post so on this thread or send me a PM or call me at 991-1807.

                      Thanks, Bob

                        The Ice Bowl is an event designed to help our local communities. Maybe someone else in your area will run the tournament.

                        I've got some cheese to go with that whine.



                        I like the design.. Some hot chick on a disc HELL YEAH!!!!!

                            Snow Blowers???

                            Due to the crazy weather we are having we may not need snow blowers for clearing the course for Ice Bowl. Let's just keep them on stand-by for now.
