Wow, what a day! Thank you to everyone who came out to make the Eugene Disc Golf Club Ice Bowl 2012 a huge success! 109 people came out to have fun, give back to the community and help raise the profile of disc golf in Eugene. We had great weather and a lot of great attitudes as we dealt with the huge turnout and the inexperienced TD. I detected no wimps and no whining!
The final total of money raised was $2028.08!
Food For Lane County will be able to provide 6085 meals with our donation!
I haven't had a chance to weigh the canned food we collected for the Ice Bowl yet, but it filled up about a third of a full size pickup bed. Oh, and no big deal, but earlier in the week Andrew Rich and Tobiah Orin Mosier dropped off over 1400 pounds of food
for the cause at Food For Lane County! Holy Crap!
THANK YOU ANDREW AND TOBIAH! I suspect our total for the food drive will be at least 1600 pounds.
I will post again with more results and the winners of the Ice Bowl trophies and prize categories. For now I'll just say that a certain mature gentleman named Bob cleaned up at the raffle, taking home TWO new Innova disc golf bags!
Special thanks to my two full-time volunteers for the day, Rebecca Duffy and Jesse Everett! Jesse even declined to play once he saw how much help we were going to need and instead spent the day spotting on hole 5 when he wasn't checking scores, writing scorecards, and updating the leader board along with Rebecca. Rebecca didn't play and was punished by having to more or less hang out with me all day.
Thanks also to Jesse Grasseth, Cloud Pemble, Rex Snellstrom, Tom Chrestman, Jim Johnson, Andrew Rich, Tobiah Orin Moshier, Don Richter, Bob Cabal, Jason Turner, Mark Scheid, Mike Higgins, Skipper Hamilton and anyone I may have forgotten for all the help when I needed it throughout the day. There's just no way we could have done it without all the help and next year we'll be better organized and prepared for hopefully another big day.
Last but not least thanks again to all of our generous sponsors:
