Devens Ice Cube Open raises over $1100 for food pantry

Devens, hole 15, Ike WalkerFifty-five golfers descended on Devens disc golf course Saturday, Jan. 23, for the third annual Ice Cube Open Ice Bowl to benefit the Devens Loaves and Fishes. A record $1115 and 330 lbs (306 items) of food was collected and donated to the food pantry that serves several towns that border the former military base in Devens, MA.

The weather could not have been better for winter golf. After a chilly 12-degree start under clear blue skies and plenty of sun, it warmed up to about 32. As an added bonus, the dense 10 inches of snow didn't eat up too many discs, either! Aaron Ala's 50 (-4) was the hot round of the tournament.

Division winners each took home specialty ice cube tray trophies shaped like icebergs, the Titanic, dentures, and skull and crossbones. There were also a bunch of CTPs, and donated chili and fudge for lunch. Luke Adolph and Matt Duquette each nailed an ace, but unfortunately there was no ace pot!

Steve Shiner wins some discs!Steve Shiner and Trenton Solomon won the Disc Grab Bag and took home 14 and 12 new-to-them used discs, respectively. John White (AM2/Rec) and Rob Walker (Pro/AM1) each won a beautiful Innova calendar in the Ring of Ice contest that wrapped up a very fun day.
