Did some digging. The event was originally split into a Pro Weekend and an Am. weekend. It has since been combined into 1 Pro/Am tournament but is still called the Crosstown and has the same format so this years 2014 was the 31st

I believe the MN majestic has been around for a long, long time but no idea the history of it really. At one time it was surviving on bare rations pretty sure.

I think that Rochester tourney was in one of those "flashback" articles DG Magazine was doing last year or so. It was one of the (if not THE) first stand-alone DG tourneys, i.e. not part of a multi-event frisbee comp.

Plus think about it...these two 40th means the first ones were in '75. (!) That's old school. I was only 3.

An interesting side-question for this thread would be, we got any guys or gals who played in any of the inaugurals of these tourneys?
