Have you ever Disc Golfed in winter? How about at -30, when the sun is out for three hours a day?
in Dawson City, we're hosting the Dawson City Ice Bowl, December 30th, 2023 at Crocus Bluff Disc Golf Course.
This is a fun way for us to promote winter activity, and the appeal of disc golf, year-round. If you can do it on December 30, why not in November, October, etc.?
This is also a fundraiser for our local Food Bank - The Dawson City Food Bank. All registration proceeds go to the food bank, and all players are encouraged to bring non-perishable goods to support this important community service.

An Ice Bowl® is a disc golf event, most typically held in winter, with a mission to increase local awareness of disc golf by raising funds for local and regional charities, with an emphasis on fighting food insecurity.
Many Ice Bowls emphasize fun over competition, while burnishing a positive image for disc golf and disc golfers through publicizing the charitable fundraising with timely news releases. Ice Bowl began in 1987 as a single tournament in Columbia, Missouri in an effort to publicize the fledgling sport and to get more people playing. Raising funds for charity was added as a very significant component of Ice Bowl in 1996. Since then, nearly $6.5 million has been raised, including almost $520 thousand in 2023.
Here are the three historical Ice Bowl® “rules” that convey Ice Bowl’s spirit:
1. Under no circumstances, may an Ice Bowl® be cancelled or postponed because of weather conditions.*
2. No wimps or whiners are allowed.
3. There are no excuses for not attending. Either be there or be called out as a wimp!
*While Rules 2 and 3 are “inviolable,” recent winters have taught us that sometimes cancellations are warranted. *Defying the conditions is a big part of the fun, but Mother Nature may force Rule 1 to be broken; public safety is of the utmost importance and should guide your decision to hold your event if conditions are too severe or dangerous.
