Jeremy Rusco Returns To Hometown Great Bend, Kansas

Returning to your birthplace after being away can carry all sorts of emotions and memories, but returning home to be honored is something special. On October 23rd, Jeremy Rusco returned to his hometown of Great Bend, Kansas to be honored as a speaker in the INSPIRE Speaker Series at the Great Bend Chamber of Commerce. Rusco outlined his journey as a kid from Great Bend to an entrepreneur selling discs as a hobby to owning and operating Dynamic Discs, which employs over 50 people in Emporia, KS.

The momentous trip didn’t stop there, however, as Rusco and other Dynamic Discs staff members Eric McCabe, Bobby Brown, and Robert McCall moved to the newly re-designed disc golf course at Veterans Memorial Park. The Great Bend Recreation Center hosted an afternoon re-opening of the disc golf course with a putting contest, long drive contest, clinic, and mini-tournament. Course re-designer Eric McCabe showed players around the new layout which now features red Dynamic Discs Veteran baskets.

This brief trip shows how important and easy it can be to grow disc golf in your area!
