Nebraska Ice Bowls 2018

11 Jan


What is an Ice Bowl®? Ice Bowl® is a disc golf event held in January or February for fun and with a mission to increase local awareness of disc golf by raising charitable funds to combat hunger. The following three (more-or-less mandatory) Ice Bowl® Rules convey the spirit of Ice Bowl®:

  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!

These are the dates and locations for Ice Bowls in Nebraska.
