World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend 2014
« on: April 30, 2014, 07:53:09 AM »
The World’s Biggest Disc Golf Weekend started in 1991, when over 350 players took part in a one-day event at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. At the time, it was the biggest tournament in disc golf history. The next year, creator John Houck #1688 turned it into a global event dedicated to introducing the sport to tens of thousands of people around the world on the same weekend. At its peak, the event was hosted in almost 200 cities and 16 countries worldwide. Houck continued this tradition for 23 years, and this year marks the 24th and final event for WBDGW as it is known today.

Gary Lewis would run this great event every year throughout the 90s and early 2000s. It was the funnest weekend of disc golf every year. The Joliet area would draw 300-350 players and we would always compete for the top honors. It will be interesting to see what happens next year.
