Disc golfers support God’s Pantry
By Troy Lyle
Having fun and getting in a little extra practice wasn’t the only objective of the 36 disc golfers who participated in the inaugural River Hill Ice Bowl on January 16. Many hoped to do some good for the community as well.
“The event raised $600 and more than 200 lbs. of canned goods to support the work of God’s Pantry locally,” said Lewis Willian, longtime Bluegrass Disc Golf Association (BDGA) member and tournament participant. “It’s a national tradition of all winter disc golf tournaments to raise support for the needy through a charity event. As a matter of fact, we (BDGA) are not allowed to call it an ‘Ice Bowl’ if we do not.”
