Sheila and I are pretty excited about upcoming demonstrations right on the campus which we will be doing in April. Here's the flyer (PDF). We'll be on North Campus at Noon on April 13 and on the Central Diag at Noon on the 15th.
2000 Am Grand Master and 2008 Am Senior Grand Master, Joe. Sheila is 2002 Am Women's Masters Champ and 2008 An Women's Grandmaster Champ. Ben was 2000 Junior Doubles Champ and 2000 Am Mini Golf Champ. Plus Sheila and I have 3 EDGE skill shot Worlds first places between us. Having taken the sport up at age 51, it was a little late for Pro Open division :) but I have hopes for Ben in a few years.
Bummer. That's crazy. The last two years, we've spent the winters tirelessly peddling our gamecock discs and shirts to make enough to get there from only an hour and a half away. Maybe if they had to raise some of the funds, they would have a vested interest and wouldn't be inclined to bail.
The tournament itself is WAY bigger than it was that first year. Maybe it wasn't a big enough deal for them. Any college student disc golfer that doesn't go is really missing out on a great experience and opportunity. Oh well, I just know you upper midwesterners are nuts about disc golf (I mean we are too, but we don't have to brave the cold to go play) and the region is severely under-represented at the NCDGCs.
