Rick Petrie   March 1, 2014 at 11:29pm

Well done Alan & Mark. I think that makes you guys the most fanatical of the Fanatics!

Alan Fox   March 3, 2014 at 5:39pm

We are pretty crazy aren't we Mark!

Rick Petrie    February 28, 2014 at 2:59pm

It's the end of the month... Time to move some baskets... come help at Fairmont at 4:00.
Before they get frozen in place (again) by the upcoming blizzard. Thanks!

Josh Carroll   February 28, 2014 at 3:17pm

I'll be out there playing a round. If you can find me, I'll help out.

Rick Petrie   February 28, 2014 at 4:14pm

Awesome! we don't need to move them all... some were just moved for the ice bowl.

Rick Petrie   March 1, 2014 at 9:24am

Shout out to Ian Waters, Mitchell Brenn & Josh Carroll for helping move Fairmont baskets yesterday! (sorry 6 long is still frozen solid!)

Has anyone heard anything about a 2014 Little Apple Open?

Rick Petrie   February 26, 2014 at 1:26pm

Ya, kind of. Kindy (w DD) contacted me with some questions... I really pushed for a 2 day tourney... that may not happen.

Rick Petrie   February 26, 2014 at 1:26pm

Sounds like they have a few dates in mind... could even be in mid-summer... It boils down to when DD and Smitty (the TD) can fit it into their schedule.

Rick Petrie   February 26, 2014 at 1:28pm

In other words, it sounds like their company still plans to host a 2014 Little Apple Open, but the date is still undecided.

Mitchell Frederickson    February 25, 2014 at 11:02am

Can someone please post the info for the upcoming tournament to raise money for new baskets. I think there was two or thee events? Not really sure?

(2). Our club has set a standard practice of scheduling meetings (in a fomal meeting enviroment) in order to spend time vetting any proposed club endevor. For example starting new leagues, building/remodelng courses, etc. Reason being, it provides everyone an oppurtunity to collaborate on big & ... more

Mitchell Frederickson   February 25, 2014 at 3:19pm

OK, got ya. I didn't realize there were 3 clubs. Thanks Rick.

Jon Tveite   February 25, 2014 at 8:23pm

No offense taken, Mitchell. Thanks for being interested.

Rick Petrie    February 22, 2014 at 6:35pm

Cool to see so many of you at Fairmont today.
Shout out to everyone who helped make it happen!
That course is something we can all be really proud of.


Rick Petrie    February 22, 2014 at 9:28am

Wether you are playing, or watching, I look forward to seeing all of you at Fairmont Park.


Rick Petrie    February 20, 2014 at 9:39pm

For anyone who wants to help set-up on Saturday Morning (Feb 22nd), here's the basics. Arrive around 9:15am to help set-up some folding tables, a couple portable tents, and a few other miscellaneous items. We will need to be set-up & ready for the non-playing visitors by 10:30am. (Rev. Kev. may also need some help, however he'll highly trained LCM students by his side). Considering we are expecting a lot of non-players at this event, the usual practice area will only be used to ... more

Rick Petrie   February 20, 2014 at 10:06pm

In other words, we don't someone's first experience with disc golf to be getting smacked in the head by a putt. :-)

Rick Petrie    February 20, 2014 at 1:57pm

If you head to Fairmont Park during the work day on Friday please do not park in disc golf parking lot, especially if you see large equipment working on the parking lot. Thanks.

Rick Petrie   February 20, 2014 at 6:46pm

.... there's lots of other places to park and start your round.

Rick Petrie    February 19, 2014 at 8:03pm

Disc golf is blowing up my phone, computer & schedule... and I like it!
But it's almost game time, so I'll be off the grid for a while tonight... and you'll probably like that. (Ha!)

Rick Petrie   February 19, 2014 at 8:04pm

K-State game time, that is.

Mark Kewley   February 19, 2014 at 8:29pm

Are you also going to tweet that you are off the grid :)

Rick Petrie   February 20, 2014 at 1:50pm


Rick Petrie    February 18, 2014 at 12:37pm

Just received word from the County they are installing some hardware right now. Exciting stuff!


nick samuelson    February 17, 2014 at 10:38pm

Rick Petrie   February 17, 2014 at 10:56pm

Good job to you too! I think you're in the best photos... playing through distractions.

Alan Fox   February 18, 2014 at 6:29am

Okay. Can someone tell me what exactly is purpose of the "Firing Line"? Ha!

Dimond Cutter   February 17, 2014 at 9:46pm

Alan Fox   February 18, 2014 at 6:28am

Rick Petrie    February 17, 2014 at 2:33pm

Additional information about the Fairmont Expansion & Remodel project, plus the upcoming LCM Ice Bowl Tournament, found in the local radio station on-demand section.
Check it out!

Mitchell Brenn   February 17, 2014 at 7:23pm

Hey that embarresed guy who gave rev kev some advice was me! lol can't wait for the tournament this weekend.

Rick Petrie   February 17, 2014 at 7:54pm

What did you tell him? I might need to fix that part of my game too. Ya know us "old guys" gotta look for every edge we can find. Ha!

Rick Petrie    February 16, 2014 at 10:33am

Reminder: The Manhattan Mercury is scheduled to be at our usual disc golf league today. They will be interviewing players about the upcoming Ice Bowl & Ribbon Cutting event, plus any background info about disc golf. Let's be sure to put our best foot forward today... It will go a long way in future projects too.

Rick Petrie   February 16, 2014 at 10:49am

BTW, They are sending photographer along... so you'll want to have your best disc golf look going too. ;-)

Rick Petrie   February 16, 2014 at 5:30pm

Great turnout today, especially considering the muddy & slushy elements. Can't wait to see what the newspaper comes up with... maybe even something before the Ribbon Cutting & Ice Bowl.

Mitchell Brenn    February 15, 2014 at 10:14pm

Lost Disc Alert! Circle stamp eagle on hole 14. Please let me know if you find it.

Adam Johnson   February 15, 2014 at 10:35pm

Rick Petrie   February 15, 2014 at 9:56pm

Ooops. That should have said "never played #13 LONG". Like mega long!

Mitchell Frederickson    February 14, 2014 at 11:53pm

Would anyone like to carpool to Wichita on Sunday for a PDGA C tier tournament?

Ben Nispel   February 15, 2014 at 9:09am

Drag AJ and Mitch up here with you! And if you end up coming could you bring my shirt from Josh?

Josh Carroll   February 15, 2014 at 11:38am

I'm actually heading down to Hutchinson this weekend but I won't be able to make it down to Wichita. If I hear of anybody I know making the drive from the Hutch crew, I'll pass the jerseys on to them to give to you.

Ben Nispel   February 15, 2014 at 1:21pm

Sweet, I still have a disc for a hutch guy too. I think his name is Matt newton so I'd like to send that up to him as well!

Mitchell Brenn    February 13, 2014 at 7:06pm

So Millennium now sponsors USDGC champion Steve Brinster! Just thought I would share some cool news about Millennium/Discs Unlimited since they help us here in Manhattan a lot.
