The 9th Annual FREEZEBEE Ice Bowl event will be played this coming Sunday, January 8, 2012 at Firefighters Park in Troy, Michigan.
The Motor City Chain Gang is hosting this fundraiser benefitting the Detroit Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
Our 2012 donation goals are to raise $5000 and 3000 lbs of food
Details for the event are:
Registration / Check-in is at 9:00am - 9:45am with Tee off approximately at 10:00am
This is a singles format where we will be playing 18 holes and a final 9.
Entry for the event is $25.00 for all Open players plus 2 new discs or $10 which will be used for prizes and $20.00 for all of the AM divisions.
Mulligans are $5 each. The limit for the Open players is 3 Mulligans while the AMs can purchase a max of 7.
100% of the Mulligan sales will be included in the cash donation.
We will also have a 50/50 CTP, an Ace Pool, and a raffle.
So far in the raffle we have a pair of Red Wings tickets (donated by Nick Cooke) and the last Nick Lidstrom autographed disc.
Our 2011 efforts left us 10th (out of 233) in the country with $4650 raised and also 3570 lbs of food!
We have been able to achieve these great numbers because of all of you, the players.
Please bring in non-perishable food items to donate. Players will receive a raffle ticket for every five cans of food brought in (limit 10 tix).
The player that brings the most food will win a special Ice Bowl prize.
We will also be accepting cash donations to add to the almost $3000 we have raised coming into the event. Here is a link to the Pledge Sheet if you choose to use one to help raise funds: http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/FREEZEBEE_Ice_Bowl_Open_2012/pictures/132824#132824
The largest cash donation will also win a special Ice Bowl prize!
To feed the players, we'll also be featuring the 2nd annual CHILI COOK-OFF ! Bring a pot of chili and if it's voted the best chili by the players, you will win a special Ice Bowl prize! There was plenty of hot and tasty chili last year to go around. By the looks of this weekend’s forecast, there should be no snow. It should be in the uppers 20s when we start off but hitting a balmy mid 30s by the afternoon so the hot chili will definitely hit the spot!
Donations of new or slightly used discs, disc golf merchandise, or disc golf accessories will be accepted to add to the raffles and to sweeten the payouts.
