2018 Golden Sombrero Ice Bowl Series is Coming Soon!

The 2018 edition of the Golden Sombrero Series of Ice Bowls will begin on Saturday, January 6, 2018 with the Redlands Ice Bowl at Ford Park.  Twelve more fantastic events are planned for this year’s series, where we hope to include over 400 unique players and raise over $20,000 for local charities that feed the hungry.

Watch this web site over the coming weeks for information on the upcoming events and results after they are held.  Last year’s champion, Drew Sodergren, will be defending his title against all comers!

Mast Park Has A Chilly First Ice Bowl

OK, so it in no way compares to the snowy, freezing Ice Bowls back east, but in terms of San Diego the weather at Sunday’s Mast Park Ice Bowl was

chilly.  With temperatures staying in the 50’s and a breeze blowing all day, 57 players participated in the first organized tournament held at Mast Park.

 

Jason Fitzgerald had a wire-to-wire victory in the Open/Advanced division with a first round of 38 and a final 9 of just 19 throws for a 57 total.  Jason finished 5 throws ahead of Jerry Jones (62) and one more ahead of Jonathan Maki (63).  In the Ladies’ Open/Advanced division Allie Robles and Rianne Hamilton were tied after 27 holes at 76 strokes apiece.  The title was decided with a 90-foot CTP throw.  Rianne tossed it to within 5 feet of the basket, but then Allie threw within 3 feet for the win!

John Maki won the Men’s Intermediate/Recreational title with a total score of 63, just ahead of Jack Moffett (65) and Alfredo

Salazar (66).  The Maki family was also represented by John’s grandson Kevin Rojas, who won the Junior title.  Claire Kinder bested a field of four Ladies in the Intermediate/Recreational division, with her 86 beating second-place Shannon Mendia by 6 throws.

The big winners on Sunday, however, was the Santee Food Bank, which will be receiving a donation of $1,200 thanks to the Mast Park disc golfers.  Players purchased a large number of mulligan/raffle tickets to help support the cause.  Two big supporters were Jennifer and Don Burdette, who were rewarded for their generosity by winning both a mini Innova basket and a portable Innova Traveler.  They must have found a four-leafed clover on Sunday, because the luck rubbed off on Michelle Chambless.  Michelle left before the raffle and had Jennifer hold her tickets and when Michelle’s ticket was pulled Jennifer was there to claim her prize!

The Golden Sombrero Series winds up next weekend with the Mystery Ice Bowl on Saturday and the Balboa Ice Bowl on Sunday.

5th Annual Murrieta Ice Bowl

The 5th Annual Murrieta Ice Bowl presented by the Murrieta Rattlers Disc Golf Club and sponsored by Innova Disc Golf, Disc Golf Values.com  & Disc Golf United, had 50 golfers come to Mountain Pride Park in Murrieta to try and Conquer the Mountain! (OK, so having unlimited Mulligans available helps!) As always, Maxine Duncan, our clubs ‘Fairy Golf Mother’ organized another great event but was unable to see all the festivities as she was on her first day of well deserved beach vacation. I, Glenn Duncan ran the show in her absence with the help of former and current board members.

After 18 holes of play, 6 golfers turned in a score of 18 under par! They were Ryan Boggs (only 9 mulligans used!) Connor Duncan, Jim Lane, August Fabel, George Leopke and Dan Boe. An experimental Sudden Death play-off format was used where each player has a stack of 20 discs, throws from a baseline continuously until one goes in and declared the Tournament Champion! With the wind a factor, it took until the 3rd round to crown a winner and that was August Aaron Fabel!

The lone player in our Women’s division, Erin White, also got the only Ace on hole 3 and the Ace Pot of $76! The Ring of Fire had many happy winners and one golfer won a magnum of champagne donated by a local course resident, Karla, who we just love! One round was for a New Deluxe Innova Golf Bag for only those several golfers that didn’t have one yet. When that single disc hit the chains and all the rest fell to the grass, a huge cheer burst from the crowd as the new owner shook the bag in victory! It’s for moments like these that I do this. The raffle had so many donated items from golfers all over!  Trace French brought Discs and goodies from his Bakery in Palm Desert. Travis Giffin brought lots of great schwag from Ballast Pointe Brewing. The Innova Traveler basket was won by Mark Keith (the first to sign up…  Karma?) It was a good day if your name was George Loepke or John Clemmons, as each one had multiple wins drawn.

As for John Clemmons, the disc golf karma was in his favor. John has attended nearly every work day I have had at MP! He has moved pad materials, helped build many Paver tee pads and was there to dig concrete footings in July at 104 degrees! This sport needs more like him, I have sweated and laughed with him and I am proud to call him my friend. After all the Frisbees were done flying, I’m confident that over $1000.00 was raised for our charity, Community Food Pantry of Murrieta! I’ll post the exact total later. Thank you all, for it’s not a Party if nobody comes!

Speaking of Work Days… Next Saturday, Jan 21st is a 3 hour work day to benefit everyone who plays at Mountain Pride. It is from 9am to Noon and you will get a guaranteed pre-registration opportunity for a spot in the 3rd Annual ‘King of the Mountain!’ tournament Sat April 29th 2017 There will be lots of tools available and you can bring your own too. For those that miss the Jan date, there will be one more Work Day on Sat Feb 18th 9am to noon also. Pencil us in on your calendar! We are the PRIDE of Mountain Pride!

Glenn Duncan,

President Murrieta Rattlers DGC

Risley and Greg “Cheeky” Arimura are tied for third with 71 points and Trey McKelvey rounds out the top five with 61 points.  Full standings can be found on this page.

The 2017 Ice Bowl Season is here!

2017 is here, and that means….Ice Bowl season!  In Southern California that means it’s Golden Sombero time.  This is the tenth year that local Ice Bowls in SoCal have banded together under the Golden Sombrero banner.  What does that mean?  Well, it means a whole new batch of cool Golden Sombrero-stamped Innova discs (probably more different molds and plastics than we have ever seen in the series), a brand-new points race to see who will win the Golden Sombrero “trophy” (and portable basket) and a chance to raise lots of money for our local food bank charities.

Here’s the schedule for 2017:
