Since 2002, the intrepid disc golfers of the Nation’s Capital have been braving the winter elements in support of the Ottawa Food Bank. The 13th annual Ottawa Ice Bowl disc golf tournament will take place on February 8th, 2014 at the Kanata Disc Golf Course in Beaverbrook Park, Kanata. Ribbon your discs, throw on a parka and come join us and help a great cause.
Disc golf in the winter you say? It’s snow joke.
Every Saturday, from November until February, disc golfers of all ages and skill, will be throwing ribboned-frisbees on some of the best courses in the National Capital Region. It’s a great way to get out and enjoy the colder months, stay in form for the summer season, and to help out the Ottawa Food Bank.
This year marks the 13th Annual Ottawa Ice Bowl which will be held at the Kanata Disc Golf Course, on February 8th, 2014. The ODGC, through the Ice Bowl and Ice League, has been raising money and food for the Food Bank for 13 years.
The start times and locations for Ice League vary, so be sure to check the schedule that is updated on a regular basis here;

What - An ODGC Town Hall Meeting
“A town hall meeting is an informal public meeting that gives the members of a community an opportunity to get together to discuss emerging issues and to voice concerns and preferences for their community. A typical meeting is attended by both citizens and officials, giving everyone a chance to talk personally in a relaxed environment about the things which matter to them. Typically, the organization and leadership are minimal, encouraging people to settle their differences amicably and with help from friends.” (WiseGeek.org)
When - November 19, 2013 – 6pm-9pm
Where - Local Heroes Meeting Room, 1400 Clyde Ave, Ottawa
Why - The ODGC has just completed its first term for elected board members. A new president will be chosen in the coming months and there are issues and developments, that are best discussed in person so everyone is on the same page. A town hall will allow members to express their thoughts and opinions on disc golf matters in the region and outside.
Who - All members and interested parties are invited.

Camp Fortune is looking divine these days.
Offering unbelievable views, exceptional disc golf terrain and an outstanding variety of disc golf moments, Camp Fortune is considered by some to be one of the best disc golf experiences in Canada.
Thanks to the hard work of the ODGC volunteers who have dedicated themselves over the last decade, Camp Fortune is a must play disc golf destination. Armed with mowers, clippers and a vision, these devoted landscape artists have carved out astonishing beauty out of the wildness that grows out of the protruding Canadian Shield, making it accessible and enjoyable for players of all skill levels.
On August 24, 2013, the Outaouais Open will host the Quebec Disc Golf Tour and welcome players from all over Quebec and Ontario to the Ottawa and Outaouais region. Camp Fortune will be in all its glory.
It’s no walk in the park.
