Book Tour for "Ultimate Glory" Stops In D.C.

David Gessner continues his book tour supporting Ultimate Glory: Frisbee, Obsession and My Wild Youth; a 300+ page-turner The Washington Post describes as: recommended reading for every college student.

On page 249, Gessner recounts his intoxicated incident in fall 1989 that led to banishment from D.C. The letter with his punishment read:
"Gessner is now barred from any WAFC (Washington Area Frisbee Club) sponsored event...WAFC will suspend all play at any tournament in which Gessner appears. His team will forfeit all games."
