The doffing of the Sombreros (we haven’t come up with a better name for the awards ceremony) for the 2018 Golden Sombrero Series occurred over the weekend as part of the festivities at the 2018 Daniel Boe Memorial tournament.  Six disc golfers were recognized for their feats of disc golf, travel and mulliganery.  The winners were:

  • Grand Champion – Aubrey “D-Unit” Daniels
  • 2nd Place Overall – Oscar “MexiBeast” Garcia
  • 3rd place Overall – Steve “Bama” Civitak
  • Ladies Champion – Suzette Simons
  • Most Total Points – Mike Despars

(Suzette, Mike and Ryan are reportedly searching for appropriate nicknames for next year)


The 2018 Golden Sombrero Series of Ice Bowls was a smashing success!  538 individual players took part in 14 separate events, from as far south as Sycuan Golf Resort in El Cajon to Chavez Ridge in the north.  The final tally for money raised was over $23,500 – a record for the series.  Everyone who participated or volunteered should be proud of the amount of help that money will provide to the hungry in our communities.  The food banks will be able to provide nearly 100,000 meals with what we raised!

To wrap up, we would like to give a big thanks to the folks at Innova-Champion Discs who provided the fantastic discs for the series and to Mark Molnar of for the amazing support he continues to provide to our cause.  And many thanks to our Golden Sombrero TD’s, who put in a great deal of effort to provide a fun day for the players and full bellies for the hungry:
