ICE BOWL POSTPONED

Posted by mojo28 on February 5, 2010

To err on the side of safety, the Ice Bowl scheduled for February 6, 2010 will be postponed until February 13, same schedule. My primary concern is people trudging through up to 2 feet of snow, not counting drifts. If a player has a “medical emergency” there would be no way to get emergency access to the park. the following is an excerpt from an e-mail from Rick Rothstein, founder of the Ice Bowl: “I’m getting ready for the KC version of the Ice Bowl this Sunday. We missed the brunt of the winter storm that looks like it will make the Ice Bowl in Memphis a “memorable” event. Speaking of bad weather and Ice Bowl, at some point, common sense and concern for safety should take precedence over the “cannot be cancelled or postponed because of the weather” credo. Please be careful out there.”
For those diehards who will be disappointed, I hope you understand. For those who see this post, please pass the word.

Next week, there will still be plenty of snow, and it might be crusted over. More importantly, access to the park will be cleared by then. This will also allow for more participation, resulting for more funds raised for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

Ice Bowl Will Go On!!

Posted by harrisonburgdiscgolf on February 5, 2010

With the prediction of up to 28″ of snow, what a better day to have an Ice Bowl? We will go with the Ice Bowl as scheduled 2/6/10. Please see prior post.

Some things to consider on Saturday:
* You may not be able to drive into the park. If you can’t, please park as close and safe as possible, and walk the remainder.
* Park staff may be plowing.
* The Rec Center will be listed as being CLOSED. That message is for the wimps and whiners not participating in the Ice Bowl.
* The doors closest to Hole 1 will be open.
* We will meet in classroom 1.
* Warmth and bathrooms inside.
* Snack machines will be available, but bring $1’s or proper change.

I will cross country ski over, so don’t look for my car!

Let it SNOW!
