Goal
In 2018, thanks to our generous participants and donors, we were able to raise $2,600 and 1,041 pounds of food for our charities!!!
Previous records:
Cash - $2,500 in 2014
Food - 795 pounds in 2013

For 2019, let's increase our donation! Our goal is to raise $2,750 and 1,150 pounds of food. Let's show everyone how well our disc golf community can come together for a great cause!

Format
The 2019 IDGC Ice Bowl is a charity based, XC - Tier, CEP disc golf event. The X designation comes from our Tour Manager approved format of running ALL DIVISIONS as TROPHY ONLY. All participants will receive an event branded player pack, a provided lunch, and trophies for top finishers. There will not be a payout offered for any division; amateur or professional.

Extra Fundraising Opportunities
The IDGC will be offering both a Silent Auction and Raffle during the 2019 IDGC Ice Bowl. Not only is this a great opportunity for us to raise more money for our charity, it is also another opportunity for our participants to support our cause. If you're not able to make a food or cash donation, we will happily accept merchandise donations that can be featured in our Silent Auction & Raffle.

For every 2 cans or items of food donated, you will receive a raffle ticket. There is no limit to how much food you can bring to donate. This will be the cheapest way to enter the raffle, but not the only way to enter. If you would rather purchase raffle tickets, we'll happily accept your money in the IDGC Pro Shop.
Raffle Ticket Costs
$5 for 2 raffle tickets
$10 for 5 raffle tickets
$20 for 12 raffle tickets

Raffle prizes will be announced soon!

Lunch
The Augusta Disc Golf Association will once again be hosting the Annual Chili Cook-Off during the lunch break between rounds. Thank you to the ADGA for hosting our lunch for another year!

If you're interested in bringing your best chili to compete in the chili cook-off, please let an ADGA Board Member know. We will have a trophy for the best chili (voted on by participants), which will be a great item to complement your bragging rights for all of 2019! Can anyone best the winning chili brought by Cj Nappier last year, or will he retain his bragging rights for another year! Bring your best chili and let your fellow disc golfers decide.
