Still have fond memories of the Des Moines World's and attending the Challenge few times in the early 2000s. We brought back many ideas for disc golf in Nebraska and
Would like to share a story from Worlds. Our family stayed at the host hotel. The kids, Eli age 9 and Abi age 7, slept on the fold out couch, my wife and I of course in the bedroom. One night the fire alarm was triggered. It's the middle of the night, we lay in bed thinking "great, some yahoo pulled the alarm". Then hear the hallway door open and close and look at each other. We jump out of bed and notice the kids are gone. WTF?! We quickly get more clothes on and rush out into the hallway. There's Eli and Abi, hand in hand being led back up the stairs. They were being assured it was not a real fire, false alarm. Later on when talking with the kids they just thought that's what you're supposed to do, which is go outside when there's a fire alarm. Apparently in their sleepy daze the thought about alerting Mom and Dad never occurred! ... We still have many fond memories of that story and many other good times.
Hope you have a quick and full recovery! Would enjoy showing you some courses in the neighboring state to your west.
