State Representative Scott Dianda (D-Calumet) introduced House Resolution 162 last month that declares July 6 as Frisbee Day in Michigan.

“When people think of my district, they might think of ice fishing and snowmobile races but the sport of Guts Frisbee has its beginnings up here as well,” said Dianda. “Calumet is also hosting the Coca-Cola International Frisbee Tournament on July 6 and 7 that will draw teams from across the country and world to our state, making Frisbee a significant way to promote what our state has to offer.”

The 56th International Frisbee Tournament is being held the weekend of July 6-7, in Calumet. Teams from all across the state — the Keweenaw Peninsula, Marquette, Tri-Cities, Lansing and metro Detroit — have succeeded in numerous Frisbee tournaments over the years. Additionally, The International Frisbee and USA Guts Hall of Fame is located in Calumet. Frisbee players in Michigan have continued to help grow the sport among Michigan youth, and they strongly support and contribute to the Hall of Fame.
