Three Vassar students calling themselves the “Disc Hoverers”—Tom Krajna ‘80, Billy Bloom ‘80 and Judy Horowitz ’82— performed Frisbee freestyle before some 12,000 spectators during half-time of a New York Knicks basketball game at Madison Square Garden. "I get more pleasure out of competitive events," Horowitz told The Miscellany News, "but it's a different type of pleasure when you're in front of a crowd and they react to your freestyle."  

The team performed again in the Garden on October 21, 1980, and Horowitz won the World Frisbee Disc championship in 1981 and 1985.
