Each year on March 8, International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world to “mark the economic, political, and social achievements of women”. Although this holiday is not so well-known here in the United States, countries such as Russia celebrate International Women’s Day by giving flowers to the important women in their lives, much like we would celebrate Mother’s day. The International Women’s Day website created the theme The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum to celebrate 2013.
What could be a better way to start an amazing year of women’s disc golf than with a tournament focused around a national women’s holiday? First time tournament director, Myrriah Gomez, has teamed up with Innova Champion, Legacy Discs, and Pocket Disc to present the 1st Annual International Women’s Day Tournament. The tournament will be a one day C-tier event on March 9 at Brent Baca Disc Golf Course in Albuquerque, NM. Registration will be open until the morning of the 9th unless it fills prior to the event.
