"Bet I can throw this Pluto Platter so hard that you can't catch it."
"No way, bro. Heck, I can catch your weak throws one-handed. And you don't have the guts
to get in front of what I throw back at you."
And so, guts, and competitive Frisbee tournaments, were invented. OK, it might not have happened exactly like that (pretty sure people didn’t say “bro” in 1958, even to their brother), but what did happen
is that in the summer of 1958, with a Pluto Platter the family had acquired, the Healy family started the International Frisbee Tournament, or IFT, that has been contested for over 60 straight years.
This gallery contains discs from those tournaments or commemorating the event. And what an event. Over the years, many of the great disc players competed for the coveted Julius T. Nachazel trophy—perhaps the most beautiful in all of disc sports.
