Disc Fanatics of Kansas

FYI, I just received word that County/City crews are at Fairmont today doing some tree maintenance work.
They will do their best to not adversely effect the fairways, but first & foremost their responsibility is to make the park safe for all users...
I'm as eager to see their work as anyone. I doubt anything dramatic changes will occur though.
Stay tuned for future opportunities (this fall/winter) to have them address any specicic issues we (disc golfers) identify.

Question regarding the pin placements for the FHO:
1. Who is available to meet at Fairmont Park on Wednesday evening to decide the pin placements to be used at the FHO? We could also put them in the "morning round placements".
If we tackled this on Wednesday evening, (a) we would not have to do any basket maneuvering later in the week, and (b) we could get a couple days of practice on that specific layout.
Side Note: Also, please consider helping mark the O.B. lines on Friday evening.

I found a disc at Tuttle last night. Let me know what you are missing...
Rick Petrie May 3 at 9:42am
Heck yeah! It's now Little Apple Open week!
I'm going to try to get in 2 rounds at Tuttle, if my shoulders and neck let me (old man issues).
Exact times I'll be out there tho... ? Not sure, maybe 11:00-12:00 ish.
Just saying it would be cool to see a lot of y'all out there today.
We gotta defend our turf on Saturday!
Rick Petrie April 20 at 8:46am
With another hectic week of disc golf work and play in the Manhattan area, I'm thinking we should cancel this month's DFOK Meeting (set for Thursday night). OR at least postpone it until the first week of May.
Also, if you have a pressing topic for the meeting that can't be delayed, please contact me ASAP.
