Flatrock Ice Bowl raises food and funds for local charity 

Thursday, January 20, 2011  by John Borelli

 Just received this newspaper article published yesterday in the Athol Daily News. You have to be a subscriber to read it, so here it is below. Nice job, Flatrockers!

Submitted by Sean Franchi:

On Saturday January 8 the FlatRock Disc Golf Club hosted its 10th Annual Ice Bowl where players compete in 2 rounds of 18 holes of disc golf -- no matter what the weather. Entry fee for players is 5 pounds of food or cash equivalent going to a local food pantry.

Between January 1 and February 27 each year disc golf courses around the country hold Ice Bowls. The only steadfast rule is that the event cannot be cancelled for weather related reasons.

In the past FlatRock has enjoyed Ice Bowl conditions ranging from -5 degrees in 2005 to 68 degrees in 2007. Players have played in snow as deep as two feet before, but this year the weather really cooperated. Participants enjoyed 22 degrees and played on a mere 2 inches of snow.

Collectively, nationwide, the goal this year is to raise $3000,000 for food charities. This is a realistic goal given last years numbers of 222 events with over 11,000 participants raising $279,746 dollars and more than 34 tons of food.

Sixty-two players competed at FlatRock this past Saturday and between them they raised 215 pounds of food and $286 dollars. This year the donations are earmarked for the North Quabbin Catholic Community food programs. top Top

Over a foot and a half of fresh snow is not going to keep Don Boutin from holding his Frozen Apples tournament this Saturday at Hyland Orchards and Brewery.

Tim Walsh sent in this photo of Don clearing teepads this morning. Don't let Don's hard work be for nothing! Sign up for his tournament now!

NEFA was at the Rose Bowl 

Monday, January 10, 2011  by John Borelli

Since the final FCS Bowl game is on tonight, I thought I'd dig out some archives of NEFA's own Davis Johnson at the Rose Bowl back in 1975. Watch Davis win the 1975 World Distance Championships with a 295 ft throw. Looking good, Davis! top Top > Comments   (3 comments)
