Hey Dogleggers! I apologize for getting so behind on my coverage of Worlds this week. I often convince myself that I’m going to have tons of free time when I travel. I somehow managed to forget that, since I planned on attending the majority of the events going on in Emporia, the rest of my time would have to be used for catching up on rest! That being said, I will be catching up on my posts over the next couple of days. I have coverage of the Player’s Party, Night Ace Race, an interview with Pete May, and an overall review of the event coming to you soon!
Now, on to the ladies-only event!
More than 30 ladies made it out to the Emporia Country Club on Wednesday night to compete for TONS of prizes in a ring of fire. Miranda Fulton put on this great event, and was assisted by the adorable Haley, who was in charge of yelling out “1, 2, 3, FIRE!”
As if a bunch of disc golf girls getting together to putt wasn’t fun enough, Miranda switched it up on us. Some rings were reserved for juniors or required use of forehand putting. Others required us to stand backward, or to “butt putt” by throwing the disc backward between our legs!
At an event where so many female disc golfers travel from so far away, it was really great to come together to be reminded that so many of us share the same passion for disc golf and growing the presence of women in our sport! I hope to see events like this at more tournaments in the future!
PS: I forgot to mention–every lady at the event got an awesome umbrella straw, even if they didn’t win! It was definitely a fun way to show off and start a conversation with others after the fact! GREAT idea!
