Check the rules of the upcoming Ice Bowl Disc Golf Tournament in Hannibal. They clearly state that wimps and whiners should stay home. But if you’re up for some outdoor activity, no matter the weather, this is an event you should definitely check out.

The 15th  Annual Ice Bowl will be Saturday, Feb. 20 at the Don Crane Disc Golf Course in Huckleberry Park in Hannibal.

The national Ice Bowl organization has three rules:

  • Under no circumstances, may an Ice Bowl be cancelled or postponed because of weather conditions.
  • No wimps or whiners are allowed
  • There are no excuses for not attending. Either be there or be called out as a wimp!

Tee-off begins at 10 a.m. Participants will play two rounds. Registration begins at 9 a.m. It is sponsored by the Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department. Prizes are donated by Excitement Disc Golf.

The fee is $10 and proceeds will go to the Buddy Pack program, which benefits more than 500 Marion County schoolchildren. The program allows children to take home backpacks full of free food each Friday. The backpacks are full of juice, soup, cereal, peanut butter and other simple staples. The goal is to make sure low-income children stay fed, healthy and productive.
