Wow, what a great Ice Bowl we had at Zilker. The weather was perfect and the turnout was HUGE!
We had 186 people; 50 more than we’ve ever had before.
We raised $750 for Capital Area Food Bank, which is the most cash we’ve ever gotten in our 9 years of Ice Bowls.
We also raised 359 pounds of food, which is the 2nd most amount of food.
(Our grand total for the 9 years is: $4,732 cash plus 2,282 pounds of food)
A BIG THANK YOU to all our great sponsors.
DISC NATION is one of the club’s biggest sponsors and always comes through for us, this time with some great gift certificates. Don’t forget that you can join the club or renew your membership through their web site. You can also buy club stamped discs from them that help us with our fundraising.
MILLENNIUM, HOUCKDESIGN AND WORLD’S BIGGEST – as Disc Golf and as Austin as it gets! John & Dee brought a bunch of pizzas and sodas that not only helped ease the hunger after the round, but helped raise some money as we were able to sell the slices for $1 or $2. And it was good tasting pizza too!
PLAY IT AGAIN SPORTS is also a regular supporter and chipped in some great gift certificates for 5-5-5.
SHIRTS420.COM donated a ton of their shirts plus donated ˝ of all the proceeds from the shirts sold during the event.
RANDY GERDE sent a big box (and a really cool box at that) of smoked salmon from the Great Northwest.
DAN MUELLER donated an Innova Disc Catcher Sport basket that was won by Hugh Pickett in the raffle.
SUSAN MACALUSO sent a bunch of great tie dye!
TEAM JUSTICE brought some awesome discs and stuff from their HOTT tour.
And lots of folks brought discs, shirts, minis and other goodies to give away in 5-5-5 and the raffle, including
JAY & DES READING
