It’s probably less-than-appropriate that my first post here be about a suburb of Worcester, but I couldn’t resist.
I’ve often driven by the Maple Hill Disc Golf course in Leicester, but I never really understood what disc golf was all about. Luckily, there was a great report on WBUR’s Only a Game this morning about the Vibram Open, a professional (!) disc golf tournament with a $50,000 (!) purse. In Leicester (!).
There are people who make money throwing discs (I would normally be inclined to call them frisbees,but after listening to the story, I’ve got a newfound snobbery about classifying flying discs) and those people were in Leicester a month ago.
