Besides the beautiful green hills and the pleasant temperatures the next big event coming to this area is Glass Blown Open. GBO is taking place the last week of April and is a week long disc golf tournament to play the many courses in Emporia and surrounding areas. Cottonwood Falls has the Boyce Baumgardner Memorial Course at Swope Park and Clover Cliff Ranch also has 18 tees. Professional Disc Golf Association was founded in 1976 and the movement continues to grow internationally. Just like in golf there are the drivers, short game, and putting. Thumbs up to getting people of all ages outside and playing together, increasing skills, and following some rules. Emporia will be hosting a Junior Disc Golf tournament the weekend of July 9. What a great way to enjoy the beautiful Kansas Flint Hills and get some fun, exercise and relaxation time. We would be very happy to help host any of these participants so please contact us at email@example.com. Just wanted to share some images of what I am talking about. The disc and where they are supposed to go. I have seen these around but haven't really thought about what they are. The bag to carry the disc looks like a good idea to me.
Writing this with weekly updates about what is happening at Spring Street and the places I love in the beautiful Flint Hills.
