Vibram joins NEFA as a sponsor 

Monday, January 25, 2010  by John Borelli

VibramThanks to the generous folks at Vibram and the very intuitive thinking of Steve Dodge, NEFA is pleased to announce that Vibram/Vibram Disc Golf will become the official sponsor of the NEFA Points Series.

Vibram has donated a large quantity of discs for the regular season and other potential perks for the NEFA Points Finals. You'll see the Vibram logo on our Points Series page and a banner at all NEFA points events over the course of the season.

There will also be opportunities for players to get one of a kind Vibram discs throughout the season. You know the one's that you see all the Maple Hill guys with? Now you'll get your chance to get your hands on some as well!

NEFA is pleased to announce this relationship with Vibram and we hope that it will open up more doors as we try to grow our sport in New England! top Top > Comments   (2 comments)

Devens Ice Cube Open raises over $1100 for food pantry 

Sunday, January 24, 2010  by John Borelli

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.

Top finishers
* Pro Masters: Daniel Marcus
* Advanced: Aaron Ala
* Advanced Masters: JC Vermynck
* Intermediate: Rooney Bianco
* Recreational: Sam Misuraca
