The best disc golfers in the world are coming to MA this week!

Do yourself a favor and get your butt to Leicester, MA this week to watch the best disc golfers in the world compete in the Vibram Open at Maple Hill disc golf course.

Last year's Open winner, Nikko Locastro
Look in your bag and pull out a disc with a signature on it. Chances are good that that person will be at this event! Newly-crowned world champions Nate Doss and Page Pierce will be there, as well as former champs Nikko Locastro, Eric McCabe, Avery Jenkins, Valerie Jenkins, Dave Feldberg, and Barry Schultz.

The festivities start Thursday with Match Play and the Five Spot Tournament. The actual tournament starts Friday and runs through Sunday. Admission is free and there are all sorts of fun things to watch, especially the long distance contest. Bring a blank disc and a Sharpie and get some autographs too!
There will also be a special screening of the disc golf documentary Chains on Wed. night at 8:30. If you can't make it to the tournament, you'll be able to watch it live on DiscGolfPlanet.TV and keep up with live scoring and the blog which I'll be doing for the third year in a row. I'll post the link once everything is ready to go.

And who knows, maybe we'll get some pros to come to league the following week. We snagged Val, Avery, and Nate last year but it may be tough this year since I am moving away on Wed. but you never know!

We surprised our league members with a free pro clinic by Val, Avery, and Nate!
