Most people are familiar with the Frisbee. We toss it around in the yard and at the park. Some people take their love of Frisbee to another level. This week on KBIA's Thinking Out Loud, Trevor Harris talks with local Ultimate players in advance of next week's major college Ultimate tournament happening here in Columbia.
On this segment of Thinking Out Loud, Trevor Harris visits with members of the University of Missouri's women's Ultimate Frisbee team about the sport and the upcoming Missouri Loves Company tournament to be held in Columbia November 8 and 9. Also featured in this segment Peter McCarthy takes Trevor into the closed stacks at the State Historical Society of Missouri to show off items in the Midwest Disc Sports Collection, which McCarthy curates.
The State Historical Society of Missouri is working to digitize the thousands of records in their archives. Along the way, staff has rediscovered many significant documents, including one written by an American founding father.
