Brent Higham and Steven Gerald, the main drivers behind the new-ish Riverside Chain Bangers Disc Golf Club put on a very fun 3rd Annual Prado Ice Bowl on Saturday in Chino.
Mother Nature cooperated, keeping the rain away, temperatures in the comfortable range and letting the sun poke through the clouds every now and then. The keg of Coors Light helped the mood as well, and may have helped loosen up some purse strings as the mulligans were a-flyin’! In the end Jacob Newey must have wanted that cool rustic basket trophy the most, or maybe he just really didn’t want to miss that putt on hole #2. No matter the reason, he played solid disc golf, carding a neat 20-under par on a mulligan-inspired morning at Prado.
Jacob’s 40 on the 20-hole Ice Bowl layout was go
od enough to edge out Golden Sombrero veteran A.J. Risley (42), Nick Wright (44) and Chris “Fossil” Clements (46) in the Open/Advanced division. Suzette Simons fired a 3-under 57 to win the Women’s Open division and hold on to 3rd place after three events in the Golden Sombrero Series. La Mirada’s Kevin Ascheri took a 1-stroke win in the Intermediate/ Recreational division with an 1-under 49, just ahead of Kevin Shaw (50), Dan Ross (51), Rick Poynter (52) and Jeff Barber (53). Heather Davion’s 65 was the top score in the Women’s Intermediate division and Shalon Holiman took the Juniors division with an 87.
Once all of the cards were turned in everyone’s attention turned to the ring of fire contest, which featured several sets of ties that caused the competition to carry on and on and on….and on. As best as can be remembered, Eric Stanley and Aubrey Daniels were among the winners. If future TDs want all of the ring of fire winners to be remembered, they will need to not have a free keg of beer on hand. One of the big winners in the prize raffle was Richard Garcia, who will be receiving a new Innova Discatcher Traveler basket courtesy of our friends at Disc Golf United.
