Just a reminder about the Waterloo Club’s Ice Bowl coming up on Saturday at Zilker Park. On-line pre-registration through Disc Nation is going strong, and we have over 30 people already confirmed. There will only be 1 flight this year, and the maximum number of people that can play is 126.
Here is a link to the Disc Nation events section: http://www.discnation.com/Tournaments-Events.html
We could really use some more sponsorship for this event.
We aren’t asking for any big amount from anyone, but a disc or two here, a shirt there, or even non-disc related stuff is great too. We need things to give away in our CTP game (5-5-5), and some raffle prizes too. Our raffle grand prize will be a brand new Discatcher Sport Basket, so bring some extra money for raffle tickets and the CTP contest.
We already have confirmed as sponsors: Disc Nation, Twin Parks Country Club, and Sister Sue Dye 4 U; thanks Y’all!!!
If you can donate something, please let me know so I can add you to our sponsor list, then just bring it to the park on Saturday. If you would like to make a monetary donation as sponsorship, you can do so by check and you can make it payable to Capital Area Food Bank so that you get the tax deduction credit for it (they will mail you a letter for your tax records).
We could also use some help during the day, especially for food. We’d like to do something similar to what we had at the Pease Memorial minis, something easy and basic like sausage wraps, with maybe chips and cookies. And hot chocolate too – it looks like it will be cold that morning.
There is a regular grill down there, but it takes charcoal. A gas grill would be much more convenient and easier to get started and re-started.
So we are looking for someone (or a few someones) who can bring down a grill, buy some food and some drinks/cups, cook the food and heat the water (yeah… I know, the hardest part is boiling the water), sell and serve the food and drinks. We’d love to have hot chocolate available in the morning (and maybe later in the day if it stays cold), and food available both before and after the round.
Please let me know if you can help with some part of this. We need to get it set up and organized in advance so that it is easy to deal with on Saturday.
We will also likely need some help getting set-up in the morning, and getting people registered/checked in, getting their merch; you know, running them down the gauntlet of that long picnic table we use
Finally, as a reminder, it is limited this year to 126 people only, so pre-registration is advised, or show up early to sign up that morning. We will start taking signups at 11 am, but in past years we have usually had a good sized line already waiting by then. The parking lot by the polo picnic tables and the north part of the course will fill up quickly. There is the smaller lot by the south part of the course, and there are a few other lots along the park road BEFORE you get to the course.
Even if you have pre-registered, the discs and shirts are still first come, first choice. We have lots of DX discs and short sleeve shirts, but types, colors, weights, sizes, etc of each are limited. We also have long sleeve shirts for an extra $5 and some better discs, including a few Innova INNcolor and Discraft Supercolor discs, ranging in price from an extra $6 to an extra $25. So the earlier you get there, the more likely you’ll find just what you want.
Phew, this ended up being a lot longer than I planned. Have a great week, stay warm, and we hope to see you on Saturday for another fun Ice Bowl!
