World Frisbee Disc Championships 1978

The finals of the 1978 World Frisbee Disc Championships (WFC) were held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. Thirty-six years ago! Ultimate was not played [watch here], but other popular disc sports of the times were, such as: Disc Golf and Freestyle.

The much smaller font for the word "disc" is most likely due to the event being a promotional event by Wham-O, who only sold Frisbees.

Coors Brewing Company, as a sponsor of the WFC event, distributed these branded Frisbees to attendees. Sunday, August 27th, was the last day of the 3-day event.
