Another Superbowl Sunday, another Ice Bowl in the books! Montiel Park hosted today’s 12th Annual San Marcos Super Ice Bowl, with 50 players completing 27 holes on the 9-hole Montiel track. Players got a chance to try out the six new concrete “B” pads recently installed by the City of San Marcos during their second 9 holes and the reviews were very positive! Unlike most other Golden Sombrero Ice Bowls, no mulligans were used at Montiel and all players followed “Superclass” disc golf rules, which require use of larger-diameter, blunt-nosed discs. While the weather looked threatening all morning the forecasted rain really never showed up, with brisk 60º temperatures under cloudy skies the order of the day.
In the Open/Advanced division, visiting old-school Frisbee player Steve Goodwin closed with a final-9 score of 22 to add to his first round 47 for a total of 69, catching first round leader Mark Verrochi, who finished at 70. Deano Porter and Ryan Meagher were one shot back at 71, finishing tied for third.
In Intermediate/Recreational, David Patrick’s total of 74 was enough to beat Jeff McCreary and Mike Bloomfield, who tied for 2nd place, shooting 75. Chandelle Butterfield’s 103 total was good enough to give her the Ladies title while DJ McGlaughlin’s 86 secured his win over the field in Juniors.
While the players were here to play disc golf and help raise funds to feed the hungry in our community (through a donation to the North County Food Bank), Katie Risley kept them caffeinated with coffee from Starbucks while Maxine and Glenn Duncan provided hot dogs, chips and soda for the lunch break between rounds. And speaking of between rounds – the intermission was filled with a return engagement of “Disc Golf Bingo”, where players bought $5 bingo cards for a chance at a Discatcher Sport-24 basket. Brendon Von and Nik Sirin were the first to call Bingo with Brendon winning the CTP playoff to take home the basket.
When all was wrapped up after awards and a prize raffle, over $1,000 was raised for the North County Food Bank (we will update this article with the final total at a later date). Full results for 27 holes of disc golf are below:
|Philip Johnson Jr||Int/Rec||81|
|David Case, Jr.||Juniors||141|
