Disc golfers take over Chandler Park for 2014 Tulsa Ice Bowl to raise funds for food bank

TULSA - On a weekend warm enough to melt any ice in sight, the 2014 Tulsa Ice Bowl was held at Chandler Park. 

Hundreds of disc golfers from several states came to Chandler Park on Saturday and Sunday for the two-day disc golf tournament. 

It was obvious between the precise footwork, well developed throwing techniques and golfers carrying bags filled with all sorts of discs that this was not simply tossing a Frisbee in the park. 

"Oh no it is not," disc golfer Tommy Agent said. "There is a grip and the way the disc flies it is crazy how things work with these. You can throw them up to 500, 600 feet. It is definitely not a Frisbee."

No game of Frisbee and the Tulsa Ice Bowl not just any tournament.

"I run tournaments all year," tournament director Doug Duff said. "I have several tournaments. This is one tournament where I get people that come out that I never see at any other tournament."

Duff organizes the Tulsa Ice Bowl, now in its 19th year, through the Tulsa Disc Golf Association. 

Disc golfers came out to throw discs Saturday and today, but also to have a big impact. Ice Bowl organizers hoped to raise at least $10,000 and more than 500 pounds of food this year for the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma. Two goals they have been able to reach in years past.
