2020 ECU/GVDG IceBowl

Saturday February 8th was freezing as the sun came up and only got to mid 40s as the day went on. A perfect day for fundraiser disc golf and chili cook off. GVDG's 15th fundraiser for the Pitt County Social Services Food Bank brought 30 disc golfers and 11 chilis to ECU's North Campus for the days activities. The 30 disc golfers played 2 rounds of 18 holes while competing across 4 divisions, Open Professional, Advanced Mens, Amateur Mens, and Ladies. Local Pro Scott Conway won the Open division, Juan Martinez took home Adavned Mens, Amateur Mens title went to Joshua Lee, and Whitney Graham got her first win. Most importantly through entry fees, purchased mulligans in the first round, and other donations we raised $1025 for the food bank!
We are very happy to partner with Piggly Wiggly this year to maximize the donations we bring to the food bank. Make sure you are stickin' with the Pig.
This year marked our 10th annual chili cook off and we are very happy to have professional judges and a new division this year. A huge thank you to Lucas Owens - Executive chef and partner of Native – Fine Diner, Scully - Owner of the Scullery, and Alex Wasilineko - Meteorologist at WNCT 9 First Alert Weather.
The chili cook off has become a highly contested event among GVDG regulars with the winner getting to keep the world famous golden crock pot for the year. This year saw a first time winner of the golden crock pot in Vince Tricarico with his pork based Livin' la Chili Loco.
In our new division for people not competing in the disc golf portion of the days event Michelle Yelverton won with a sweet venison chili.
