Ice Bowl Disc Golf Charity Tournament planned

EAST LIVERPOOL-The ninth annual Ice Bowl Disc Golf Charity Tournament is set for 10 a.m. Feb. 8 at Thompson Park, offering players one of the largest and most challenging courses in Ohio.

“This tournament is always one of our best,” Director Kelsey Hedrick said, saying that, when the tournaments began in 2005, the course had only nine holes, not the 27 it boasts today.

“This past summer the course was sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) for Pro/Am play. We are moving right along,” Hedrick continued.

Players pay a $10 fee plus contribute non-perishable food items to be donated to a charity. Once again this year, the charity will be the Way Station located on Fifth Street.

“As always, this cannot be done without the help of the community and the businesses. We are in search of prizes for the ticket drawings for the players, and prizes can be anything from a case of soda to Tupperware to a floor jack for a car,” Hedrick said, saying, “Any donation would be greatly appreciated, and, as always, we encourage the players to support those who support us.”

First, second and third place prizes will be awarded, with food supplied after the tournament at American Legion Post 374 on Parkway, the annual host.

In addition to players, Hedrick invited spectators to come watch tournament play.
