Welcome to Ultiworld Disc Golf’s mailbag!
The mailbag is for subscribers only, which helps keep me committed to writing it every week. It will reward subscribers with a weekly column they can count on. And it will allow us to offer a free one-month Mini subscription — which includes access to our Discord server, bonus Upshot podcast segments, exclusive articles, the Cash Line newsletter, and more — for the best question, email, or comment we get and publish in the Mailbag. If you’re already a subscriber, you get a free extra month (or a discount). If you’re not, you can come in and check out the benefits.
You can email me anytime at [email protected] with questions, comments, ideas — whatever you’ve got.
Q: Jonesboro Open is going to be the first DGPT event since WACO 2020 to host spectators — it’s $10 a day, $20 for a weekend pass, or $75 for a VIP pass (which gets you a disc and the ability to walk along the course following the players, along with a couple other small perks). Pro Worlds is also going to have spectators, and they’ve sold over 500 of their 1000 tickets at $50 a pop.
Am I wrong that tournaments selling tickets has actually been pretty rare before this? Are we seeing a shift here, or is this a COVID thing?
Mailbag: Paying to Spectate, Nikko on the Worlds Waitlist is only available to Ultiworld Subscribers
