Perhaps you didn’t hear about last week’s Glass Blown Open disc golf tournament in Emporia.  But it's a pretty big deal.  It drew competitors from 47 different states and from nine foreign countries.  The annual event has become so popular that it's even caused some people to make a permanent move to Kansas. KPR's Greg Echlin explains.
