2018 GBO Spectator Badge

By

on

For Spectators only – Players registered for the GBO as players are not eligible for the Spectator Badge. A player on the 2018 GBO waitlist may register as a spectator. If a registered spectator gets into the actual event, they will be removed as a registrant for the Spectator Badge.

Come spectate at arguably the most exciting PDGA disc golf tournament of the year! The 2018 Glass Blown Open Spectator Badge gives you VIP spectator treatment all week at the Glass Blown Open. Spectator Badge holders receive a special spectator pack (valued well over $200), exclusive autograph opportunities, participation in special events all week, a week-long 10% discount at the Dynamic Discs store, and much more. Spectator Badge holders are welcome to participate in all of the same off-course activities that the registered GBO players may attend.

The Spectator Badge holders at both the 2016 and 2017 GBO were not disappointed. We fully expect the same in 2018!

Watching the exciting action at the 2018 GBO is free. The Spectator Badge program simply adds to the experience (in a big way).

Spectator Badge Registration will go live on Friday, December 1st at 7PM CT. Click here to register! (note: Great Holiday Gift Idea!)

    If you’re wait listed as a player but have paid your entry fee. Do you get an automatic spectator badge since you’re wait listed or do you have to pay for the spectator badge while already paying for your entry fee sitting on the wait list?

    • admin

      November 8, 2017 at 8:02 am

      You would need to register and pay for a Spectator Badge. You will not automatically get one if you’re on the wait list for the event. We will refund which ever entry fee is not used. If you get into the event, we will refund the Spectator Badge minus the $1.34 processing fee from Disc Golf Scene. If you do not get into the event, ew will refund your entry fee minus the $1.34 processing fee from Disc Golf Scene.

      As far as registering / applying as a media “Professional” where or how would I do that? I am working on a Photography book which will include disc golf photos. I would also like to possibly use photos from this event in a photo contest or 2.
      Any info you could give me on this process would be very much appreciated.

    Is there a limited number of spectator badges available? Is it a race to sign up like it is to play?

    • admin

      November 15, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      Currently, there is no limit on them. You should have no problem registering for one.

    Are on course volunteers eligible for spectator badges and will this add much to their experience at the Tournament?

    • admin

      November 20, 2017 at 7:50 pm

      Yes, a volunteer can also buy a spectator pack.

      It will absolutely add to your experience at the GBO. Spectator Badge holders receive a special spectator pack (valued well over $200), exclusive autograph opportunities, participation in special events all week, a week-long 10% discount at the Dynamic Discs store, and much more. Spectator Badge holders are welcome to participate in all of the same off-course activities that the registered GBO players may attend. LOTS of options for you.
