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

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

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.

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

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

Ha.

Rick Petrie    February 18, 2014 at 12:37pm

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.

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.

I'm seeing no large out cry to "cancel" Sunday's league event... So it's Game On! See you tomorrow.

Mitchell Frederickson   February 8, 2014 at 8:21pm

What time is it again?

Rick Petrie   February 8, 2014 at 10:37pm

1:15 check-in. 1:30 start time.

Rick Petrie    February 7, 2014 at 5:42pm

Considering the widely varied snow depths (drifts) on the course, plus none of the Fairmont parking lots have been cleared, I PROPOSE we CANCEL this Sunday's regular league contest. I'm all for playing in some snow, but competing in these exact conditions could be very regrettable.

Nothing to do on the weekend without league? You could stop by Fairmont and dig out a couple tee pads... that way they don't get totally snow packed before the Ice Bowl & Ribbon Cutting event.

Are you proposing a change to the official rules then?

Mark Kewley   February 8, 2014 at 11:30am

"- League events may be canceled due to dangerous weather conditions. Cancellations will be based on Severe Weather Warnings issued by the National Weather Service. When in doubt, check the leagueu2019s main page as all pending cancelations will be posted there. "

Rick Petrie   February 8, 2014 at 12:06pm

I wasn't wanting to make any big "rule change". I was just curious if we should cancel due to this unusually large total. I suppose we should host league at the usual time & place, then let those in attendance determine how much of the course to play. That has worked in the past...

OFFICIAL SUPER BOWL PREDICTION THREAD.
Who y'all got?

Rick Petrie   February 2, 2014 at 6:13pm

I'm thinking Broncos because so many people are "saying" the Seattle defense is so good. That seems too simple.

Adam Johnson   February 2, 2014 at 6:43pm

dont bet against peyton

Rick Petrie   February 2, 2014 at 9:06pm

Looks like I better stick to college football. Well at least the Chili Peppers were good.

Rick Petrie    February 1, 2014 at 12:36pm

Hello all league guys and gals! The Sunday league events will take place at the usual time & place, despite the snow & it being Super Bowl Sunday. Fresh snow is fun to play in, plus the Super Bowl kick-off isn't until 5:30pm...
Hope to see you there.

Shout out to Adam Johnson & Bill Pryor for volunteering to help move baskets... especially on such short notice.

Rick Petrie   January 31, 2014 at 9:22pm

No problem Adam. I got hung up at work a couple minutes...

Adam Johnson   January 31, 2014 at 9:26pm
