1. PayPal - You can send me money Click on "Pay or Send Money", select "Send money to friends or family" and put in my email address: Also -please put in the notes section your full name.



CASH DONATIONS: This is the main focus of the Ice Bucket,as all the money we raise for the event goes directly to Vermont Food Shelves to help them get food to the folks who need it. For those of you who may not know about "Ice Bowls", they are a collection of disc golf events that are held each year in January and February with an overall mission of raising funds to fight hunger. Related goals include having fun and connecting the disc golf community in a positive way to the community at large. In 2016 we had 13,140 disc golfers participate in Ice Bowls and raise $357,452, which pushes the charitable total raised by Ice Bowls since 1996 to $3.51 million All of this money was given to local organizations dedicated to fighting hunger. Here in Vermont, our GMDGC Ice Bowl, came in 2nd Place for "Money Raised" out of 218 events nationwide. We raised a record high of $15,143!!! To date, the GMDGC Ice Bowl has raised close to $64,000 in 10 years!! Every year I push our goal further and so for 2017 we will attempt to raise $16,000 to help feed those who need a hand. You will find a donation link on our homepage. Please ask your friends and family to help us reach our goal. NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL.

All cash donations will go directly to the food shelves we support!

Alright friends it's now December and that means it's time to get to work raising money!

The calendars have kicked off our efforts and now it's time to pre register and individually fundraise. I would love to see some action in both departments and so I have a small but fun incentive....

If I receive $150 ( or more) in donations in your name before next Friday Dec.9th, you can pick your starting hole for Rd.1! Registration money is only included if you pre reg before Dec.9th at the $150 level, otherwise it's getting out and asking friends,family and neighbors for donations in your name ( make sure they put your name in the online donation form or I won't know who it's for). Get together with a friend over the next few days and raise some money and then pick your hole and play together for Rd 1 of the event!

Calendar and beer raffle $ ( raffle coming soon!!) is seperate from this. This is setup to get you registered and raise some money in the next week!

Hole #1: Wedel,Young,Becker,Jrapp
Hole #18: Sudarsky

Jordan Potvin has got the ball rolling with 4 co workers donating almost $100 yesterday!

Let's keep it going! If we want to hit our goal of $16,000, it will take each and every one of you.

Tons of more added prizes, check out post #1! still many more coming in as we speak, stay tuned as I will be updating post #1 daily with info....

Huge thanks to the Mad Taco for helping with lunch. I updated that info. in post #1 as well so make sure to check that out. The skinny is that the Grange kitchen is under renovation and so for this year we will need to either A. bring your own bag lunch or B. order in the morning a burrito from the Mad Taco. $10 (cash only), pay and order morning of the event. 3 options, veggie,chicken or carnitas. Next year we will have the kitchen to use and we can go back to our traditional chili and cornbread potluck.

Just confirmed with Vibram that each player that participates in the event will get a 40% coupon card! This is good up to $500 in merchandise ( some restrictions apply), which is a great deal! Big thanks to Vibram for the support of our event! Get registered!
