Biggest Ice Bowl to date that I know of. 67 players in attendance despite a frigid temps and cold winds the first round. The sun came out during the 2nd round and it turned out to be a decent day for January. The day prior, record setting temps of 70+ degrees, the day later complete blizzard conditions (we lucked out!). One day's weather in Kansas.
I want to offer a huge thanks, which is due all the volunteers that helped make this event a success. A load of people got baskets on & off the course without incident. Bob Decker, Mike Speer, Bryan Grosbach, Russ Trice, Taylor Camp, Bill Paulson, Peter Mohr, & Jehramy Heckman helped with registration & scorecards & payouts. Mike Speer couldn't play due to a back injury, but helped out all day and even ran to get more raffle tickets. Didi Schoenhofer & Mrs. Paulson helped with getting all the food ready and cleaning up afterwards. To all the others I didn't mention, my thanks to you also!
Thanks is espescially due to our sponsors. Scott Miller getting Fox & Hound on board once again took the event to the next level. Buddy and Crispin brought you the nice 1st place trophies that made the event a lot more special to the winners. Casey Fluty kicked in a 2010 USDGC Roc for the raffle. Buddy also brought in a $200 donation. Bob with Heibert & Decker CPA's gave $100 donation and raised an additional $175 in sponsorship. Many people supported by purchasing a total of over $1000 in raffle tickets. Lots of superlatives yet again this year, espescially our donation to the KS Foodbank. I'll post the official amount when we cut a check, but it looks like we are looking at $2500+, easily a record! Thanks to everyone for coming, bringing baskets & good food, & supporting our fundraising effort.
I'm proud to be a part of such an effort. Great people doing great things for the community- you just can't beat it. I hope everyone had a great time and feel free to send me any suggestions on how to improve it for the future.
