Lebanon Ice Bowl #9 Recap - Feb 26th, 2017
This year's Lebanon Ice Bowl was definitely on the cooler side. Although we did not see the white stuff, we did feel the chill of the cold wind blowing all day. This was our 9th Lebanon Ice and we were happy to get 42 players despite the frigid day.
The course was in excellent shape as always. Some added tender love and care and work was put in by Brad Hilton, Rollin Clamme, Chris Ryan, Steve Wilson, and Brandon Atkins cleaning out leaves in the woods. This made things much easier locating discs. Thanks guys!
With only 42 players, $1,450 was raised for "L Life" a food bank for the Lebanon area! Over $700 was raised in the raffle that sported a galvanized Monkey Trap purchased by John Shelton and the Lebanon Parks & Recreation. John also wanted to give out a Fossa bag for a Ring of Fire. Huge thanks to John, George Eudy and all the Parks & Rec for preparing and supporting each and every year! Money was also raised by a $5 or 5 cans of food option, mulligans, and 1/2 the ace pot was thrown in. There was also one check donated by a gentleman who wanted to contribute but couldn't come play. To all of you congratulations nearly $1,500 raised was a huge amount despite a smaller turn out!
I want to thank some special people who stepped up to help out. Brandon Shields, Brandy Monnahan, and Janey Helton were all over helping with Registration, score keeping, Raffle sales, merchandise sales, and everything in-between. Kirk Flagg did another outstanding job on photos. If you haven't seen them check them out on Face Book. To all of you who provided food for lunch, thanks a bunch! Steve's wife and Rollin's wife made potato soup and hot dogs, Ryan's mom and Brad made chili. George made deviled eggs too. All of us appreciated the grub and thank you for the work! I know others helped and contributed that I probably missed, but you know who you are and tourneys wouldn't be as good with out the people behind the scenes. To all involved Thank You!
