What’s in the bag?!

There are 179 players competing in the open divisions at the Dynamic Discs Open this weekend, and 1,104 other competitors across all other amateur and age-protected divisions. While only a few of them will go home as champions, all of them will have some pretty sweet gear to remember1 their time in Emporia for the 2021 DDO.
The DDO, formerly the Glass Blown Open, is a week-long fiesta of Frisbee and is consistently the largest disc golf event of the year in the world. Known as much, if not more, for the party atmosphere, the DDO is one of the most anticipated events on the disc golf calendar.
Emporia. Kansas is home to Dynamic Discs, and boy do they make it rain on the players in the form of impressive players packs. Lets take a look at what they have for the players this year. If you’re curious to see more of what’s happening behind the scenes, head over to the @dynamicdiscsopen on Instagram and check out their story.
The highlight item of the 2021 DDO players pack is a Paratrooper disc golf bag that features an all-over graphic print of the competitor’s home state.
Also included in the pack are discs such as a Dynamic Discs Hybrid Evader, a Latitude 64 Opto Glimmer Ballista Pro, Dynamic Discs Lime-Scented Prime Slammer, Westside Discs Eco-line Warship, and Dynamic Discs Glow Mini Judge marker.
Other items include a Westside Discs hat, Dynamic Discs Open pin, Ballista Pro shirt, Birdie Fuel coffee and mini disc marker, clip-on DDO towel, DDO card bottle opener, and blanket.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, check-in and player pack distribution was not done at the Granada Theatre in downtown Emporia, but rather as a drive-through vehicle system at a Dynamic Discs warehouse.
