Since 2008 the Redlands Ice Bowl has been helping disc golfers give back to the local community by raising funds to feed the hungry. Here is Redlands Co-TD Joel Maury-Holmes presenting the check for $705 to Redlands Family Services Association Executive Director Kyra Stewart.
With two events completed (Redlands and Colina Park), here are the top ten points leaders in the Golden Sombrero Series. Tomorrow’s event at Prado may shake up the standings a bit…
Another beautiful day in sunny SoCal, the same kind that convinces folks from the Midwest that what they see on the Rose Bowl broadcast must be the dream. Go west young people! Clear blue skies and ample winter sun prevailed even if we thin-blooded locals thought it on the brisk side. But, hey, no wimps, no whiners…
To ring in the SoCal disc golf New Year 43 good souls partook of the 9th Annual Redlands Ice Bowl at Ford Park, flinging plastic and raising money for Redlands Family Service Association. As always it was a birdie hunt with lots of good-natured ribbing spurring players to re-putt “for the children.” Never has tin-cupping been for such a good cause.
She called it boldly in the week prior and Suzette Simons followed through with the necessary skill to win. This again kept the coveted Redlands Ice Bowl trophy in the Inland Empire and also led to Suzette claiming her bag of oranges. Maintaining the established standard, Suzette was able to run seventeen birdies and get the ace to boot. -18s abounded as seven folks accomplished that but couldn’t match Suzette.
In the “Metal o Nada” round Greg “Cheeky” Arimura hit metal twice and took the game-within-a game.
Most significantly, we will be gratefully presenting Redlands Family Service Association with $705 for their important work. Thanks go to the City of Redlands, the Redlands Morning Kiwanis Club, Disc Golf Values, Disc Golf United and Innova Champion Disc Golf for their constant and generous support. See you Saturday the 7th of January in 2017!
Bill, Samuel and Joel Maury-Holmes, Co-Tournament Directors
