2015 BRAWL Season

Ice Bowl Returns!

Ice Bowl will be held on February 7, 2015, at Walnut Creek Park. Our goals for this event: to see the turnout be more than the 38 it was last year, and to exceed the nearly 400lbs of food and $800 we donated to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. Additionally, we’ll be chowing on some of the best chili ever. The Ice Bowl marks the beginning of the 2015 disc golf season in the area, so let’s make it a good one!

Update on 2014 Club Championship by Hawk:

For those of you who are interested, here is a brief rundown of how the Club Championship played out on December 13, 2014. The weather was beautiful, and we could not have wished for a better late autumn day to throw discs. After two preliminary matches for everybody, the Slinging Sixteen commenced flight shortly after noon. All but one of the top 8 seeds held serve in this round, leading to some compelling match ups in the round of eight:

Elevated Eight Matches:

Alden (1-seed) vs. Hawk (8-seed)Curtis (2) vs. Dave (7)

Evan (6) vs. Ed (14)Barry (4) vs. Leblanc (5)

Barry shot out to a big lead over Leblanc, but had to withstand a furious comeback by Jason to advance, while Evan took down Ed. Dave had to battle into overtime to beat Curtis, and Hawk did the same in a tight match against Alden, leaving Barry as the only top four seed to advance to the Flying Four.

Flying Four Matches:

Barry (4) vs. Hawk (8)

Evan (6) vs. Dave (7)

Barry and Hawk fought pretty evenly, with only three points won between the two of them the entire match, and in the end Hawk pushed through for a spot in the finals with a 2-1 victory. Meanwhile, Dave rallied after falling behind 0-3 after four holes, winning three in succession to even things, and secured his spot in the finals, 4-3, when Evan’s par putt on the last hole unkindly splashed out.

Championship Match:

Dave (7) vs. Hawk (8)

The start of this match (Hole 10) was nearly marred by a brawl between Dave supporters (Dave) and Hawk supporters (Evan), but order was quickly restored and it was game on. Hawk won the first point, Dave won the second, and it was all tied up going into Hole 14, where Dave won another point after a gamble on a long putt by Hawk. Dave then battled through bad drives on Holes 15 and 16 to save par, while Hawk could not take advantage, leaving the final match 2-1 in Dave’s favor with Holes 17 and 18 to play. Hawk needed to win at least one of the next two holes to force overtime, whereas losing any hole at this point would certainly lose him the tournament. Dave’s drive on Hole 17 was a bit long, out of easy birdie range, leaving the door slightly ajar, and Hawk took advantage by putting his Firebird to within three feet of the pin for a drop-in deuce, and the match was tied heading into the final hole.

To this point, Hawk had played 55 holes on the day and Dave had played 56, but both of them were looking at the prospect of more to come should Hole 18 end in a tie. Both wanted that championship though, and the trophy to go with it, and they were willing to play into darkness to get that done. However, as we all know from the immortal words of the immortal Connor MacLleod, “There can be only one,” and on this day, Hawk’s cuisine would reign supreme. Pulling his secret ingredient (G-Star Teebird) out of his bag, Hawk cooked up a sweet shot that skipped up to within three feet of the pin for another drop-in deuce, and now it was Dave’s turn to respond.  Dave’s response? Well, let’s just say it left the critics a bit wanting, and, in the end, Hawk was the one feasting on victory, savoring a championship, and drinking shots from the trophy, while Dave was left with the foul tastes of “what might have been” and “maybe next year”.

Until then, however, Dave can take solace in this thought: “Revenge is a dish best served cold…”
