Twice a year Eugene Disc Golf Club members Jim Johnson and Matt Benotsch host fundraising tournaments for Food For Lane County, a local food bank providing food for the needy. The Ice Bowl and Food Toss are held about 6 months apart. The Ice Bowl takes place the day before the Super Bowl, usually in late January to early February, and the Food Toss happens in mid to late August. These dates can change so check here for details as they become available. The events are held at different locations, the Ice Bowl at Dexter Disc Golf Course and the Food Toss at Alton Baker Disc Golf Course. Tournament Directors Matt Benotsch (Ice Bowl) and Jim Johnson (Food Toss) have teamed up to run these tournaments and plan to throw amazing fun events and collect a staggering amount of food and cash for Food for Lane County (Click here to visit their Facebook page).
2014 Ice Bowl – Results Below
27 Holes of fun

ICE BOWL 2014 Raises $4000 for Food For Lane County!
Ice Bowl results are in!
In addition to the disc golf results, here are the results that really count:
150 pounds of food (at least)
Cash donations to FOOD for Lane County: $3,659.75 (so far).
The club still has to figure out their contribution based on disc sales. So this will go up a bit. In fact, I predict our cash total this year will be (drum roll please) a bit north of $4,000.00
Thank you disc golf family. Very impressive!
$20 donation to Food for Lane County per player, no payout. All of the proceeds will be going to the charity and there will be no player’s pack included – but there will be lunch provided.
A selection of merchandise with the official Ice Bowl artwork will be available for pre-order shortly. The club will also bring a small supply of the logo discs for sale. If you really really want a specific model we highly recommend pre-ordering them.
The special IB discs include Champion gummy Terns! Roc 3s, and the Atlas.
