Jeff and everyone, I am pleased to announce that the 30th Ottumwa Fall Classic will also be the 2013 State Championships. I told Clue and Tanner and Steffen that the State Tournament seems to have lost some of its luster the last few years compared to the events in the 1980s and 1990s. Back in the day, all of the top players made a point of attending the State Tournament. Open Division fields of 25 to 30 people were common, partly because there was not a hundred different divisions but mainly because all the best players were there. Not only that, but also back in the day we had to walk barefoot uphill both ways to the course and back home.
The Ottumwa Fall Classic XXX/2013 State Championships will be Oct 20, 2013. More details on the event and on how you could win a piece of Iowa Disc Golf History- a "Cone" basket manufactured by new PDGA HOFer Jim Challis' company Saucer Golf Association in 1980- will be posted soon. The basket is one of the original 9 installed at Wildwood Park in 1980.
