What started out a decade and a half ago as an 88-person B-Tier is now the biggest event in disc golf history. And with that distinction comes another accolade for the Dynamic Discs Glass Blown Open, which takes place this week in Emporia, Kansas: It has a nearly $2 million impact on the city it calls home.

For 13-year-old Isaiah Esquivel, his Christmas comes in April, as the Dynamic Discs Glass Blown Open takes over his hometown of Emporia, Kansas. That “night before” feeling? Try March.

“I was like that like a month ago, just getting ready,” he said.
