Welcome to the 2017 Mile High Disc Golf Ice Bowl!
It's time once again for the Mile High Disc Golf Club Ice Bowl, where we all throw discs in the cold so others don't have to go hungry. All money raised and food collected will benefit the Food Bank of the Rockies. This will be our 14th year holding this event, and we have totaled nearly $200,000 for local charities. In fact, five out of the last six years our club, its members, and all of our supporters have raised THE MOST money in the country for our chosen charity. With over 200 clubs from around the country, that is down right incredible. All those who register will receive a custom stamped 2017 Ice Bowl disc and a set of the popular "nested" Ice Bowl minis.
Register Early for Bonus Mulligans!
The Mile High Disc Golf Club presented the Food Bank of the Rockies with a check for over $40,000 in March of 2016. Once again, shattering the entire Ice Bowl record over the last 30 years of events held around the country and the world. And without the Winter Warrior Series, all of our club members, their families and friends support, this never would have been possible.
For 2017, we will again play this at the Fehringer Ranch disc golf course, that just keeps getting better and better. This year? All cement tee pads!!. For the last two years, we have received a very positive response for playing this course for this event. Holes that can be reached by many and mulligans that can be used for that long 45ft birdie putt. As in years gone by, you will be able to collect mulligans in a variety of ways to help lower your score, or perhaps give yourself a do over on that 6 foot putt you missed because your fingers were frozen. Michelle and I promise to make this a memorable event for all who come out to play. We are expecting this event to fill, so sign up early and don't take a chance on being left out!!
All money raised goes to put food in the mouths of the hungry!
The Mulligan Equation
Here are the 5 easy ways to collect mulligans:
- You get five mulligans just for signing up to play in the Ice Bowl
- If you sign up before Dec 15th, you will get an extra 5 mulligans. If you sign up after Dec 15th, but before Jan 1st, you will get an extra 3 mulligans
- Every Winter Warrior weekend you attend, you will get one mulligan
- For every $25 you collect in donations you will receive another 3 mulligans
- Of course, you can purchase mulligans at the event for $5 a piece or 5 for $20.
Let's say you attend 10 winter warrior events, you sign up by December 8th, and you hit up your family and coworkers for $100 in donations. Poof! 32 mulligans!
Every $1 raised is enough to supply 4 meals for those in need!
We will also be holding a raffle for everything from Ice Bowl merchandise and clothes (shirts/hats) to Rockies Bobbleheads to toys for the kids. The cost of raffle tickets is $5 for one and $20 for 5 tickets. You will also receive one raffle ticket for each $25 in donations or 5 for each $100 in donations you bring in. You must be present to win the Raffle. Our "GRAND PRIZE" this year will again be a full size, Discatcher Basket, Yellow band, portable with the cast iron base plate, and the number 17 on it for 2017 year. Don't miss out on the chance to win this!
The Silent Auction
As in years past, we will have lots of different and diverse items available at the silent auction part of our day. And this year, we will have a very special treat. StadiumViews Wall Art of Coors Field. Look it up on line!! It's very cool, and a must have for any Rockies fan!! Other things you might see at the auction could be classic discs, perhaps a disc or two autographed by some of your favorite disc golfers. You might find tickets to a sporting event, or a priority registration for one or two of our most popular Mile High golf events. To be honest, one just never knows what type of surprises you might find at the auction.
The Mile High Member Challenge
We are a club of nearly 600 people this year, up and down the Front Range. Most of us know where our next meal is coming from; many more do not. We challenge each and every one of the Mile High Disc Golf Club members to bring in at least $100. Think about it...a hundred bucks. It's that simple! We have coworkers, we have friends, we have neighbors and we have family. Please speak to them, let them know about our efforts in the fight to end hunger. Many of them will be willing to donate $5, $10 or even $20 when you let them know how far their donations and generosity can go.
Remember - Every $1 raised provides 4 meals to those in need!
$100 dollars in donations. Easy to do if you put your mind to it!
So sign up now!! and get those extra mulligans. But more importantly -
Lets get out there and help feed the hungry!
Thank you, Everyone
