Saturday February 27 was the 17th annual GVDG IceBowl. This year was played at Ayden District Park. 40 disc golfers, 34 competing in the tournament, came together to raise $1450 for the Pitt County Social Service Food Bank! A huge thank you to everyone that came out or donated. No chili cookoff this year, join us next year as we again battle for the greatest chili trophy of all time.
