As the sport of disc golf continues to grow, so must the way in which it is organized. One of the changes we saw in 2017 was the debut of a dedicated World Championships event for professional age-based divisions and, as many of you already know, we'll see our junior divisions getting their own dedicated World Championships event in 2018. So we're excited to announce another change for 2018 that affects players of all age-based divisions and introduces a couple of new divisions as well.
The 2013 National Senior Games opened this past Friday in the city of Rock and Roll where Mother Nature did some serious rocking and rolling of her own. Her opening act was a downpour on Friday night while the Opening Ceremonies commenced at the Cleveland Convention Center. The ceremonies included the lighting of the National Senior Games flame. But later that night, in the wee early hours of Saturday morning, the heavy metal headliner took the stage as a massive storm front made its way through the region and dumped 4+inches of rain on the Sims Park Disc Golf Course while spawning a tornado that damaged buildings at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike, a mere 11 miles away.
