26th Tucson Ice Bowk at El Rio GC March 13

Registration for the 26th Annual Tucson Ice Bowl benefiting the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona will go live at 9 a.m. tomorrow, Monday Feb. 15 on Discgolfscene.com.
 
The Tucson Ice Bowl is part of the national Ice Bowl® series of winter disc golf events that are held each year, with an overall mission of raising funds to fight hunger. (For more information, go to icebowlhq.com)
The Ice Bowl is Tucson Disc Golf’s biggest annual charity event and since 1995 we have raised more than $20,000 plus hundreds of pounds of food for the Food Bank.
 
 
We are setting up a 24-hole course at El Rio Golf Course and because of COVID-19 restrictions not allowing shotgun starts we must use tee times. That will limit our playing time somewhat but to make sure everybody can finish before dark we will be starting groups at the #1 and #13 tees. Though we are confident this will allow everyone to finish we are initially limiting overall entry to 72 players, though that could change.
 
Entry fee is $50 for all divisions which includes greens fee and shared golf cart. Pro divisions will be paid out in cash, ams in merchandise. We will play by PDGA rules, except that $1 mulligans will be available for pre-purchase and during the round. Sponsorships are $25 per hole.
 
In accordance with course rules, players will be required to wear masks around the clubhouse and starting areas.
 
Thanks for supporting the Tucson Ice Bowl! — Wich

25th Tucson Ice Bowl raises record amount for Food Bank

The 25th Tucson Ice Bowl raised a RECORD total of $3,530 for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona! The total included more than 1,600 mulligans, and Steve Miller won the most mullis prize with $107!

Thanks again to all the players, Fred Enke GC, the course construction crew and our sponsors, Tucson Disc Golf and its members, Scott Carle, Franklin Easterly and Baer Joinery, club 5:20, Ben Vosper and DG Woodworks, Travis Bowen and CTP sponsor Quentin Riddle. We are looking to send the funds to the Food Bank electronically to avoid contact, so we may not have the traditional Giant Check presentation, but your efforts were GIANT. Thanks, Wich and the TDGA Board
