LoCo Disc Golf Club Feeds the Hungry of Loudoun County

Purcellville, Va. (March 9, 2016)—Members of the LoCo Disc Golf Club reached new heights this year by raising $5,600 and donating 230 pounds of food for Loudoun Interfaith Relief during their annual LoCo Ice Bowl tournament at Franklin Park in Purcellville, VA on Saturday, February 27th 2015.

The LoCo Ice Bowl is part of an international series of winter disc golf events dedicated to fighting hunger. Since 1996, over $3.1 million dollars have been raised via Ice Bowl® disc golf tournaments. The LoCo Ice Bowl, through the efforts of the LoCo Disc Golf Club, has raised over $10,000 and 580 pounds of food over the past 5 years, with 100% of donations going directly to Loudoun Interfaith Relief.

This year’s LoCo Ice Bowl was originally scheduled to take place on January 23rd, 2016 but had to be postponed due to blizzard conditions that dropped up to 3 feet of snow in the region. Even though the first rule of the Ice Bowl is, “Under no circumstances, may an Ice Bowl® be cancelled or postponed because of weather conditions”, with wind gusts up to 50mph and many roadways impassable, Loudoun County closed all facilities, including Franklin Park, making the postponement necessary.

The good news is that, by delaying the event for one month, club members had more time to raise money and collect food for Loudoun Interfaith Relief, and that almost certainly helped the club exceed its stretch goal of $5,000 in cash donations for 2016.

Loudoun Interfaith Relief is Loudoun’s largest food pantry serving more than 15,000 people annually through more than 30,000 visits.  Forty three percent of those served are children. For more information, visit their website at www.interfaithrelief.org.

John Biscoe to Design New Course in Lucketts

The sport of disc golf has experienced explosive growth over the past few years and so has the interest in it from both public parks and private landowners. As we’ve seen lately, Loudoun County has not been immune to this.

The LoCo Disc Golf Club couldn’t be more excited to announce that we have signed an official Memorandum of Understanding with the board of directors of The Freedom Center in Lucketts, VA to develop no less than 27 holes of disc golf on their land. This beautiful 100 acre piece of property has amazing features with elevation, water, and lots and lots of trees.

Overhead View of Freedom Center

Club member Tim Lawson proposed the idea to club leadership late last year and after months of discussion with the property owners, and a signed agreement in place, we embarked upon finding an experienced disc golf course designer. We are very fortunate to have engaged John Biscoe to help us make this dream a reality. Not only has John been one of the pillars of disc golf in the Commonwealth for close to two decades, he is the designer of Virginia’s highest rated disc golf course, Hawk Hollow. If you’ve ever played Hawk Hollow then you know how lucky we are to have John working with us on the development of this course.

We expect the design to be completed in March at which time the real work begins. We’ll need all hands on deck for both building the course and raising money for equipment. Keep your eyes open for more information as we get started on what promises to be Northern Virginia’s next great disc golf course.
