The Fulton Disc Golf Club is set to host the sixth annual Fulton Ice Bowl on Saturday at Veterans Park.

"I'm hoping to get between 30-50 participants for the tournament this year (if not more), but it usually depends upon the temperature," Fulton Disc Golf Club president Tim Rickerson said in an email.

The event will benefit Our House, which aims to provide shelter, education and advocacy for the homeless in Callaway County.

"Last year, we managed to raise $1,140 for Our House," Rickerson said. "This year I'm hoping to beat that goal."

In addition to registration fees, which cost $20, the club has solicited local businesses for donations.

The tournament includes multiple divisions — open, advanced, AM50+, intermediate, recreational and recreational women's.

Player check-in starts at 8 a.m., and the first round will kick off at 9:30 a.m. Round two will begin an hour after round one finishes.

Players can contribute $5 for an ace pot. If someone manages to land a disc in the basket on their first throw, they win the money in the pot. In the event that no one hits an ace, Rickerson is considering adding the pot to the donation to Our House.

"One other thing we do to try to raise additional funds for the charity is a raffle," Rickerson said.

The raffle will feature six prize packs, each of a value of at least $30. The most valuable raffle prize is a special marksman basket with "a smaller ring of chains to help practice precision when putting."

"We are looking forward to a fun tournament this weekend," Rickerson said. "Even with all the snow, the motto of the Ice Bowl is 'No Wimps, No Whiners,' so we play through whatever the winter weather can throw at us."
