Please help us help Carol Carlson raise the money needed for a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT) to cure the Multiple Sclerosis she’s been battling for 26 years. In February Carol will be traveling to Clinica Ruiz in Mexico to undergo HSCT. There are many hospitals around the world she could have chosen, but she chose Clinica Ruiz for their outstanding reputation and the proximity of Mexico to Colorado. The procedure costs $55,500 and the total costs could reach to be more than $75,000 if her insurance does not pick up any of the post treatment after care required.

Please consider making a donation to this long time local who just wants to be able to do all the things she moved to Colorado to do in the first place again like hiking, biking, skiing or just taking a walk with a friend. The Board of Directors of the Vail Valley Charitable Fund have approved an Extended Grant to help with the expenses resulting from this treatment and recovery.

Tickets $25 for 2 drinks and taco bar. There will be a silent auction, cash bar and live music. Please buy tickets the night of the event at the door.

ONLINE REGISTRATION OPENS 2/7/17 AT 8:00 PM ON THE FLYING EAGLE DISC SOCIETY WEB SITE!

FIRST THIRTY-FIVE TO SIGN UP GET A PLAYERS PACK INCLUDING A DISC AND MINI!

Help us feed hungry children in Eagle County! Most of us are fortunate enough to know where our next meal is coming from but many kids in Eagle County do not have that luxury.

This is an opportunity for us as disc golfers to give back to the local community in a truly tangible way. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go to a local hunger charity.

This year we’ll once again be supporting Food Rescue Express. They provide a full weekend of meals (breakfast, lunch & dinner for Saturday & Sunday) to low income elementary age students in Eagle County Schools.

Format will be same as last year: random draw doubles with both pro and am divisions and you better believe we’ll be throwing some wild individual hole rules in the mix again. They’ll be revealed the day of the tournament so be prepared for some surprises! (and don’t forget your mini disc…)

This day will be all about having fun and raising money for a great cause. So come test your winter disc golf skills and do some good at the same time!

When: Sunday, March 5th
Where: Hole in the Sky Disc Golf Course at Eagle County Fairgrounds
Time: Registration – 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. (Day-of registration available)
Players Meeting – 11:45 a.m.
Tee Off – 12:00 noon
What: Charity fundraiser tournament with proceeds going to Food Rescue Express of Edwards
Who: Players of all ages, genders and abilities are welcome!
Cost: $30.00 entry fee (online and day of available)
Players Pack: First 35 players to sign up get an Ice Bowl stamped disc and mini.

AWARDS AND AFTER PARTY

You know they’re always good to us at Bonfire Brewing so we’ll be hosting our Ice Bowl after party at the downtown Eagle tap room!

50/50 CLOSEST TO THE PIN AFTER THE ROUND

Instead of an ace pool, we’ll be running a $2 CTP after the round. Each player has the option of paying $2 per throw, with one dollar going to the CTP payout and the other dollar going directly to the charity, Food Rescue Express. Take as many throws as you like for $2 each, until you run out of cash or discs!

This is a great way to send someone home with a good wad of cash AND support the fight against adolescent hunger at the same time!

Be sure to bring cash for the CTP and your extra mulligans on Saturday!

WE’RE LOOKING FOR DONATIONS!!

While the spirit of the Ice Bowl lies in the effort to stamp out hunger, we still want to have some great things to give away to our players.

If you, your business, or someone you know has prizes we can give away on Saturday, we will happily take your donation. Anything from discs to gift certificates to really anything that can be used as a giveaway will work. PLUS you’ll get extra mulligans if you bring a donation. its win-win!

Please let me know if there is anything you can help us out with!

Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
