Here are more details about the event from the Kansas City Flying Disc Club:

The Kansas City Ice Bowl Final will be held on January 27th, 2019 at Blue Valley Park.  The Ice Bowl was created with the intent to raise funds to fight hunger, have fun, and connect our Disc Golf community in a positive way to the community at large. Our goals this year are to have 500 participants and to raise $10,000 for our traditional charity, the Bishop Sullivan Center.

The Kansas City Ice Bowl raised $10,000 for the Bishop Sullivan Center’s food pantries in 2018, and we’d like to match that donation in 2019.

The 32nd Annual Kansas City Ice Bowl will be held on January 27, 2018 at the iconic Blue Valley Disc Golf Course. We anticipate drawing close to 400 players and/or supporters, which will get us about half way to our goal of raising $10,000 for the Bishop Sullivan Center, a 501C-3 organization.

The last qualifying round for the main event will have a flex start between 8:30am and 10:30am.

Feel free to come out the day of the event just to hang out with our Kansas City Disc Golf community. Enjoy the company and the traditional chili lunch and contest.

 

About the Ice Bowl – icebowlhq.com

Since 1996, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club (KCFDC) has raised nearly $90,000 to fight hunger in Kansas City by holding an Ice Bowl disc golf tournament in January.

The Ice Bowl® is a series of disc golf events that are held annually in January and February with an overall mission of raising funds to fight hunger. In 2018, there were 195 Ice Bowl events in North America and Europe that raised over $350,000 for charity. Since 1996, Ice Bowls have donated more than $4.2 million.

 

2018 KC Ice Bowl Team Challenge

2018 KC Ice Bowl Team Challenge

 

Hey Kansas City Beer League, Launchpad, Truly Unique, Dirty Birds, Rogue of Rosedale, Team Sendit, Whiskey Discs… and any other disc golf groups or teams in the Kansas City disc golf community I don’t know yet… Our gang, the KC Disc Golf Divas, would like to challenge your gang to a friendly competition!

We’ve experienced unexpected changes and sadness in our disc golf community this past year from lost courses to lost friends. Let’s move into 2018 with a positive and common goal: to help the Kansas City Ice Bowl reach its goal of raising $10,000 for Bishop Sullivan Center. We’ve come close to reaching it in previous years, so let’s work together to make it happen this year as a community.

There are some incentives and perks for raising specific amounts of money. However, bragging rights for being the group/team that raises the most money will be an even greater reward. There is also a special traveling trophy in the works by Jeff Gradinger of DGNomad that will be a part of KC Ice Bowl for years to come.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the team pledge sheets here
  2. Get your team together and distribute; or have everyone that is participating print a copy for themselves.
  3. Have your team start asking friends, family, and coworkers for help. If you plan to play in the Ice Bowl, you could have them make a pledge for each hole you play, or a donation of any amount is appreciated. You could also come up with other unique fundraising ideas as a team.
  4. Submit your pledge sheets and the donations at the Ice Bowl on January 28th, or by February 2, 2018 at Disc Golf World.
  5. Be the group that raises the most donations collectively and get your group name on the trophy and other perks and incentives!

 

Win or lose, Ice Bowl is a great time for an even better cause! We hope you’ll join us.
