More than 1000 PDGA members will soon be heading to Minnesota and/or Oregon for the PDGA Amateur or Professional World Disc Golf Championships. They're heading to some of the best areas in the country, not only for disc golf but for exploring and places to live. It's no surprise to those who live there that their states and cities rank near the top of several "Best of" categories. Here are some of the factors and variables that have helped support the development of disc golf in both states.
Yes, some other PDGA events have filled in 15 minutes. But this is the first time both Worlds have almost filled so quickly. All over the world players on waitlists or not yet registered are wondering if they'll be able to get in. The host teams are looking to see if they can handle more players than originally expected if schedules get adjusted to allow more players.
Some members (okay, maybe a bunch) have been wondering how the initial division size allocations have been made for Worlds. But more importantly, the allocations almost always get adjusted maybe a few times before each Worlds as the actual registration numbers continue to stream in.
