Winter Disc Golf

2013-14ILDG

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;

Town Hall

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.
