ICE BOWL 2012 is ready to rock at Kin Beach Provincial Park.

Comox Valley Disc Golf is holding their 2012 Ice Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 19 at Kin Beach Provincial Park.

The sixth annual fundraiser for the Comox Valley Food Bank tees off at 11 a.m. The $20 entry fee for 18 holes of high-low doubles goes directly to the food bank, and participants, spectators, friends and relatives are all encouraged to donate as many pounds of food as possible.

Tournament director Craig Dieno notes novice players may team up with ‘A players to try and take the title. “It means anyone can win (while) having a great time and aiding the food bank’s spring drive.”

Kin Beach Provincial Park is out past the north end of the runway at the Comox Valley Airport at the beach. “It’s a great temporary layout and should be lots of fun. Hot dogs over an open fire will be served for lunch,” Dieno said.


“There will be good prizes for most food raised and there will be scales there weighing your entry,” added Dieno. “Got any co-workers or neighbours that want to help? Get them to dop off food to you to donate to the food bank. Bring as much as you can. People are hungry.”
