The World is coming to Emporia, Kansas! The Professional Disc Golf Association announced that Emporia, Kansas will host the World Junior and Amateur Disc Golf Championship on July 7-13, 2013. Three local agencies: Dynamic Discs, Emporia Main Street and the Emporia Convention and Visitors Bureau, cooperated to submit the winning proposal to the Professional Disc Golf Association that will entice approximately 600 disc golfers to the Emporia area.
Dynamic Discs is one of the largest Disc Golf retailers in North America, and has extensive experience with professional and amateur Disc Golf tournaments. Dynamic Discs' experience with large regional tournaments, like Emporia's yearly Glass Blown Open Disc Golf event, provided the necessary expertise required to host a prestigious World Championship. Jeremy Rusco, owner of Dynamic Discs, stated "we are excited to build a relationship between Dynamic Discs, Emporia Main Street and the Emporia Convention and Visitors Bureau that made this possible." Rusco's team of professional disc golfers and event professionals are looking forward to the challenge of hosting a world championship. "We have hosted several championship caliber events, and Dynamic Discs is ready to support a World Championship in Emporia", said Rusco.
Community involvement comprises one of the primary components of a World Championship, and several community entities cooperated to support the PDGA World Championship Bid. The City of Emporia, Emporia Parks Department, Emporia Municipal Golf Course and Emporia Country Club worked together to provide necessary course facilities. According to Jeremy Rusco, access to "ball golf" facilities is critical to a successful Disc Golf event. Rusco said "The World's best Disc Golfer's appreciate Emporia's willingness to open their facilities to Disc Golfers."
Beyond the week long tournament, the Emporia community will provide Disc Golfers and the community several opportunities to participate in fun events, a "Fly Mart" showcasing new Disc Golf equipment and apparel, a putting competition, a long drive competition and an Awards Ceremony. Community Components of the 2013 PDGA World Championship are possible through the support of Emporia Main Street and the Emporia Convention Convention and Visitors Bureau. Emporia Main Street Director, Casey Woods said "the Emporia Community shows tremendous support for our local businesses and local events. We are excited to bring Disc Golfer's from around the world to Emporia, and we look forward to providing a fantastic experience."
The influx of tourists to the Emporia area for the PDGA World Championships will provide substantial local economic benefits and expose visitors to the Flint Hills Region of Kansas. Betty James, the Director of the Emporia Convention and Visitors Bureau, summed up the enthusiasm over the PDGA Announcement by stating "We are so excited for the opportunity to have the Amateur and Junior World Championship in Emporia, and we invite the world to join us on our front porch."

WHAT A SLOPPY MESS! This was heard more than once this weekend. Mother Nature did her best to spoil good times and another fantastic DD weekend. The players and the Team wouldn't let it happen. We all took what she had to offer up on Saturday and came back for more on Sunday.
Cedar Hill Chill may have been an understatement; it was extremely cold, windy, and wet. It was going to take more than bad weather to turn away 196 eager golfers. Dixon Jowers went back to his roots as a "Hog" and sludged through the sloppy mess, shooting two amazing rounds of disc golf, 1056 and 1042 respectfully. Dixon also collected the traveling Ace Pot on his way to a 3 stroke victory. Team Dynamic Discs was well represented in the Open mens divison; Eric McCabe 3rd, Brice Longerbone and Miles Seaborn 5th. Other winners on the day included Tony Shirley (Masters), Joe Sofinowski (Grandmasters), Daniel Nelson (Advanced), Lourdes Linares (Advanced Women), Jon Rogers (Advanced Masters), Bobby Beach (Advanced Grandmasters), John Cockrell (Intermediate), Kristen Womac (Intermediate Women), Danny Piacente (Recreational), and Jessica Hough (Recreational Women).
Sunday in McKinney at the Towne Lake Pro/Am, Mother Nature gave the players a little bit of a break, but most of the damage was done. The course was wet and slick to start the day and only seemed to get slicker as the day continued. The conditions were not enough to cool Eric McCabe off as he blistered the course the second round with a course record –9 (1053) for the come from behind victory. Winners in other divisions were Paige Pierce (Open Women), Mitch Branick (Advanced), Steven Cook (Advanced Masters), Mike Anderson (Advanced Grandmasters), Brandon Mast (Intermediate), Sarah Hiller (Intermediate Women), and Ryan Duncan (Recreational). In the Dynamic Discs Towne Lake Overflow at Alex Clark it was Eddie Garcia and Stepahnie Pullins winning their divisions.
Team DD did very well on the West coast this weekend as well. Paul McBeth is the Wintertime Open Champion. Nikko Locastro finished third playing in the Otter Open and Patrick Brown picked up the Masters title.
Good luck to all team members in Las Vegas at the Gentlemen's Club Challenge and at The Memorial in the next couple of weeks. Play with honor and integrity as you pursue the title. Throw some D's on it!
The first Dynamic Discs event of 2012 is in the books. Lake Park and LL Woods disc golf courses in Lewisville TX, hosted the 2012 Winter Warm Up. 185 players showed up and braved anything but ideal weather. Mother Nature showed her winter teeth yet again at the Warm Up, treating players to chilly temperatures and a stiff breeze all day long. It was relatively unknown player Kevin Bates besting a field that included former World Champions Eric McCabe and Phil Arthur, along with 6 other 1000 rated players. Other winners on the day were Paige Pierce (Open Women), Alan Hansen Begg (Masters), Randy Greywoolf (Grandmasters), Richard Why (Advanced), Jennifer Adam (Advanced Women), Barry Pierce (Advanced Masters), A-Ray (Advanced Grandmasters), Eddie Garcia (Intermediate), Jessica Godin (Intermediate Women), and Kevin Molander (Recreational). Dynamic Discs thanks all of the participants of the 2012 Warm Up.
Rainy weather on Friday may have scared off many of the perspective players in the one round challenge at Lake Lewisville. 47 people did brave the elements and Adam Hunt shot the hot round –8 and picked up the victory.
We hope to see many of you on February 18th and 19th as we journey back to Texas for two separate events. Saturday the 18th we will be hosting the Cedar Hill Chill. This event will cap at 270 players and will feature, for the first time, use of the Crossroads Church course, just a short drive from Lester Lorch Park. Sunday, we will make the short drive to McKinney for the Towne Lake event. This event will be limited to the first 90 players and is sure to fill. An overflow event will be played at Alex Clark and will only be available to Intermediate and Recreational players.
The Dynamic Disc Winter Warm Up is coming up in just a few weeks. This PDGA sanctioned B-Tier event will take place in Lewisville, Texas on February 4, 2012 at Lake Lewisville Park Disc Golf Course and at Leonard L. Woods Park Disc Golf Course, with one round played at each.
This tournament is the first of the 2012 Dirty Dozen Tour, with events taking place across Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma, and the finale in mid-October in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The Winter Warm Up will kick off on Saturday, February 4, with a player's meeting at 8:30 a.m., and tee-off at 9:00 a.m.
The Lake Lewisville Park course is heavily wooded with tree obstructions on every hole, and also makes good use of the lake shoreline. There is a wide variety of shots with a pretty tough challenge for players of most skill levels. The L.L. Woods Park course requires a lot of straight shots with trees in just the right place to add to the challenge. It's a good beginner course in a well-maintained park, perfect to introduce new players to the sport of disc golf.
This tournament includes an optional One Round C-Tier event on Friday, February 3, with a flexible 10:00 a.m. start at Lake Lewisville Park.
Dynamic Discs is excited to announce that the 2012 Glass Blown Open schedule has been set and registration is now open!
Building on last year's record of 354 competitors, the tenth edition is going to be the most prestigious GBO to date! Players and fans alike will be "Livin' the Dream" for three rounds on three different courses. In addition to the Emporia Country Club and the Jones Championship Gold Layout, the 2012 GBO will feature a round on the Emporia Municipal Golf Course. All courses will run on tee times this year allowing people to follow the leaders, participate in the Discraft "Just Focus" putting competion, drop bombs in the Skywalker Gymnastic Long Drive competition, check out Dynamic Discs Headquarters, or just kick back relax and save your energy for you personal pursuit of a championship.
Three rounds of golf may not be enough for some die hard golfers. To help satisfy the need for more golf, two separate C-Tier 'One Round Challenges' will be available at Peter Pan Park both Friday and Saturday. Each event is separate and features a flex start so that you can play either before or after your GBO round. Rounds usually take 1.5 hours to play in a smaller tournament setting.
Our motto once again is "Livin' the Dream". And we want to make sure you're living it from the moment that you start your travels until the time you get back home. We understand that making the GBO a three day event will take a tremendous commitment from you. Your commitment and support the last 9 years have helped the GBO grow into a great event, and we expect nothing less this April! Our generous sponsors have stepped up in a big way this year and are donating more than ever before to make sure that you make the Glass Blown Open and Emporia your disc golf destination event for 2012.
Tee times and this year's 3 Day/3 Round format are just a part of Dynamic Discs's continuing effort to move the sport forward, interest more players, expand media attention, and help put disc golf in front of more players than ever in the Midwest region. Our expectations are high. The GBO is more than just a disc golf tournament; it's a celebration of the sport and an indication of where it is going in the very near future. Without the PLAYERS and the support from YOU, DD events would be just another tourney! Thank you so much for your support and drive to help us take disc golf to a new level. Together we will create some attention and excitement from outside the sport. So while we're making memories to last a lifetime, we'll also be helping to grow the game we all love!
We're looking forward to seeing you in Emporia, KS this April. For complete event details, please visit www.GlassBlownOpen.com.
'Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the shop
Not a person was sleeping, they were working nonstop;
The orders where coming in so fast and so crazy,
There was no time for anyone to sit around being lazy;
The disc golfers were all nice and warm in their homes,
Visioning hyzers they were tossing with Drones;
Hoping to look good on the course as they sat,
They snatched up their laptops ordering hoodies and hats;
When out in the front room there arose such a clatter;
Rusco jumped out his chair to see what was the matter;
Away from from his office he raced in a flash,
As he slipped out the door there was another crash;
When, what to his wondering eyes should he see,
But a little fat man decked out all in Double-D;
The jolly little old elf grabbed a putter up quick,
Tossed it across the shop, banging chains, it was sick,
Jeremy haulted in his tracks coming to a fast Pause,
He was absolutely sure it had to be Santa Clause;
Grab tons of discs, all types, colors and weigh',
Hurry up Doogie and Searle, we must fill this sleigh;
Grab Innova, Discraft, Latitiude and some Gateway,
Then he whistled and shouted and called them by name;
"Now, Nukes! now Rocs! now, Halos and Challenger!
More, Destoyers! More Wizards! More Buzzes and Aviar!
Grab some mini, maybe some stickers and a stool,
It really doesn't matter, it's all extremely cool!"
Santa jumped in his sleigh and that's when their eyes met,
Rusco said don't worry, we take cash, checks or credit;
A quick tug on the reins and the sleigh took to flight,
Last thing we heard was Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!

Nikko Locastro continued his hot play to grab a spot in the final 9 on his way to a fourth place finish. Patrick Brown showed the Masters how to dominate the course on his way to an 8 stroke victory. On the ladies side, Liz Lopez qualified for the final 9 and finished in 3rd place, only 3 strokes away from the win.

Look for Team Dynamic Discs this weekend at the Kansas City Wide Open.
Team Dynamic Discs took five of the top 10 Pro Open spots at the First Class Challenge A-Tier in Des Moines, Iowa. Nikko Locastro led the way again this week, collecting the trophy and a $1200 paycheck. Nikko bolted into the lead after a 1073 rated third round and didn't let up. Paul Ulibarri also shot exceptional golf this weekend, with all of his rounds rating over 1020. That hot shooting was good enough to give Paul a solo second place. Paul McBeth was tied with Nikko after three rounds, but ran into some trouble in the last round and finished in fourth. George Smith finished in 8th and rounding out the top ten with four rounds over 1000 was Brian Miller.

Next week Dynamic Discs hopes to keep the National Tour streak alive at four as many of the team members travel to Ohio for the Brent Hambrick Memorial Open.
With no National Tour on the schedule for the weekend, Team Dynamic Discs was spread all over the country. Paige Pierce was the biggest winner on the weekend. She traveled to California to get in a practice tournament in preparation for her run at a World Title. Apparently, she made the right move. Paige shot a great last round winning the Masters Cup by 5 strokes, regaining her confidence and picking up a nice payday. Paul McBeth also played the Masters Cup and finished as the runner-up in the Open division. Newly added Dynamic Discs team member Patrick Brown finished 2nd in the Masters division. Several other Dynamic Discs players were split among two different A-tiers this weekend. Masters player Phil Arthur dominated the field in Bowling Green with a 20 stroke victory. Nikko Locastro was able to grab a 3rd place finish in Bowling Green and Paul Ulibarri nabbed 3rd in Milwaukee. In Fort Worth, it was a Dynamic Discs sweep thanks to some great shooting by Miles Seaborn and Liz Lopez at the Z-Boaz Open. Rounding out the weekend with a runner-up finish at the Dynamic Discs Little Apple Open in Manhattan, KS was Ron Convers Jr.
