I love disc golf. I love helping other people as much as I can. Today I was joined by 35 other people who love the same things in an effort to support those less fortunate than ourselves while “enjoying” 27 holes at Whispering Falls Disc Golf Course. I believe the biggest effort was in staying warm really, with temps dipping into the low teens and swirling winds in excess of 30MPH, it was a challenge to say the least.
But you know what, no one was complaining. Everyone knew we were out there for a good cause and everyone kept on trucking.
My warmest thanks to Cari, Leslie, and Greg for their joined efforts on lunch. Cari peeled and mashed 40lbs of potatoes, Leslie made 20lbs of sloppy joe, and Greg stood out in the elements and served it to us. We couldn’t do it without you guys. Russell and Thomas are always my go to tournament crew, and this one was no different. Thank you for the setup/tear down help and score adding, etc. Mark Gollery, Tim Edmands, and Jonathon Ott all shoveled tee pads at some point this week, although it seemed Mother Nature had other plans. Thanks for the efforts guys. Jonathon also cut up a down tree on 7’s tee pad for us.
Thank you to all 35 golfers that literally risked injury today to come out and lend a hand. Extra thanks to those of you that donated some or all of your winnings, the generosity is greatly appreciate.
Because of everyone’s efforts and generosity we will be making a donation of $435 to the Chambersburg Brethren in Christ Church Backpack Program, directly benefiting the local communities youth and their families!
Here’s to hoping for warmer weather next time.😉

ATTENTION! I apologize for the last minute notice and any inconvenience, but due to the forecasted weather conditions we are postponing the Freeze until next Sunday February 22nd.
It will be in everyone’s best interest to not be outdoors for extended times and it is for everyone’s safety that we made this decision. I apologize again for any inconveniences, but I can’t in good conscience promote my friends and family putting themselves at undue risk of hypothermia and frostbite.

Another Whispering Falls Freeze is in the books, with many thanks to the 52 players that braved the cold, and at times, miserable conditions to come out and join us. With at least 8 inches of snow on the ground everywhere and drifts approaching two feet it was a challenge to be sure. The “Baton Death March” was definitely interesting, but everyone survived.
Big thanks to everyone that spent time out there shoveling tee pads: Matt, Russ, Thom, Boger, Mark, Tim and Ben. Even bigger thanks to the Antrim Township Road Crew for getting the park opened up and plowed for us. I know after a 10inch snow fall the park was at the bottom of their priority list, but knowing we had an event scheduled they made it happen for us.
Thank you to everyone that always helps behind the scenes with check in, score checking and most importantly food prep: Mom, Dad, Cari, Russ, Thom and Stiles.
Thanks to all the players participation we are able to make a $300 donation to Maranatha Food Pantry.
Thanks to Roy Pitz for the swag donation for CTP. Dave Newlin took it down.
No aces were hit and Brad C. won the CTP throw off.

It is that time again. The time when we put on our beanies and put some hand warmers in the pockets and go golfing in the name of fund. Fundraising that is. It’s the 7th Annual Whispering Falls Freeze- a charity event benefiting the Maranatha Food Pantry and those less fortunate in our own communities.
Come out and play. Bring some extra coin for donations. Non-perishable food donations. Come lend a hand at tourney central. Donate beer for the CTB. Tons of ways you can help out, no effort is too small or unappreciated. Let me know if you want to help out.
Preregistration is encouraged and highly appreciated by your TD.
