The temperature might have been rather chilly, and there was new snow on the ground, but that did not deter a group of dedicated disc golfers from taking in the challenge of the Melville Disc Golf Course Sunday.
The hardy golfers took to the course to compete in the Disc Golf Saskatchewan Ice Bowl 2020, Melville edition.
The event was one of several scheduled for Ice Bowl competitions in Saskatchewan. Upcoming events include; Saskatoon – Jan. 26, Regina – Feb. 8, North Battleford – Feb. 23, and Watrous -- March 8.
Players raise money for local food banks with funds from Sunday’s event going to the Melville and district food bank.
As for the competition, Dan Fortier of Regina topped the field with a sparkling minus-five on the 18 tonals course.
Kade Wishnevetski of Kamsack finished second at plus-one, with James Lawson of Saskatoon third at plus-two.
