It is clear the Glass Blown Open established itself as one of the most popular disc golf tournaments in the world As we move into 2016, they are still looking at ways to make the event bigger than it already is. With 1,200 competitors projected for the event, Dynamic Discs announced a new Spectators Pack for this year’s tournament.
For $90, you are getting quite the haul including a pack valued at over $200:
- Access to up-close live National Tour disc golf action all week long
- A Spectator Pack valued at well over $200.00
- A 10% discount at the Dynamic Discs retail store from 4/26/16 to 4/30/16
- Special Spectator Autograph Session with top pros
- Free entry into a Spectator bracket of the GBO Putting Contest
- Participation in all non-competition activities associated with the GBO
- A free round of disc golf at the Emporia Country Club on 4/26/16
- $5.00 store vouchers for each flex-start C-Tier that you play that week
- Priority registration for the Amateur side of the 2017 GBO
- and much more…
Event Coordinator, Doug Bjerkaas, who recently joined the Dynamic Discs staff, says this is an exciting way for fans to be a part of this monumental event, “While anyone can come out and catch the great NT action in Emporia during the GBO at no charge, the folks holding the Spectator Badge will also enjoy some special activities and receive some great items to commemorate the experience. Spectator Badge holders will be quite pleased with the items they receive in their “spectator pack.”
While the Glass Blown Open is free to attend, we think of this as a VIP package of sorts. You might not be able to play in the tournament due to other commitments, but if you are able to attend for part of the weekend, this seems well worth it.
Let’s face it, odds are you were going to spend over $90 on merchandise anyways so you might as well get a little added value from it too. Bring those putters and take a stab at the putting contest and even grab a free round of golf at the Emporia Country Club.
Best of all is the final item on the list of features: priority registration for the 2017 GBO. This tournament has filled up fast and by taking advantage of this opportunity, you’re virtually securing a spot for yourself a year from now.
We’ve all wanted to see bigger crowds at premier disc golf events and sometimes dangling a carrot in front of folks never hurts. Even for $90, you’re getting quite a bit of value if you can take advantage of the joining events. If you were already planning on going to watch, this is worth looking into.
“Disc Golf is growing by leaps and bounds,” Bjerkaas tells us. “Creating a memorable experience for folks who come out and watch live disc golf action is just one more way to push disc golf to the next level!”
Finally, we’re glad to see this is not a mandatory admission fee, but just an added bonus. We’re anxious to see how successful this is and if this could become a model for other tournaments around the world.
Pick up your Glass Blown Open Spectator Pack and be a part of one of the largest events in disc golf.
