I just had to look this up... Wind speeds for "Manhattan" from Sunday & Tuesday (as per the National Weather Service).
SUNDAY: Highest Wind Speed = 26mph, Highest Wind Gust = 34mph
TUESDAY: Highest Wind Speed = 31mph, Highest Wind Gust = 42mph

Alan Fox   March 12, 2014 at 9:28am

that seems bout accurate if not higher lol

Rick Petrie   March 12, 2014 at 4:15pm

I don't know for sure where this weather station is located... I agree that the winds at Tuttle could have been even stronger than in the NOAA reports.

Lost Disc: Red star destroyer a couple feet into the water right next to the basket on hole #13. I'm going out tomorrow or Thursday, but posting just in case someone grabs it because I'm not sure if my name is on it.


Rick Petrie    March 11, 2014 at 10:48pm

Lost Disc: White Destroyer on Fairway #17 at Tuttle, along the bank of the creek...
Fairly short because it got slammed down by the wind.
It was pretty dark out by then so I'm not sure if it went in the water or not.


Mark Kewley    March 11, 2014 at 5:50pm

I'll be at Doubles tonight

Alan Fox   March 11, 2014 at 5:52pm

Who are you again?

Rick Petrie    March 9, 2014 at 10:32am

Anybody interested in my "used" disc golf cart/stroller? I can arrange a test drive if needed.

If it doesn't sell locally, I plan to take it to the DU Open on March 29th... where I'll make sure to sell it.



Rick Petrie    March 9, 2014 at 9:25am

Hope to see a lot of people at Fairmont today for the Winter Points finale!
Be sure to get there plenty early... check-in at 1:15pm

Rick Petrie   March 9, 2014 at 10:14am

By the way, the Bag Tag part just keep rolling with the same tags... there's no change in that, other than it will take place at Warner along with the Points League change in venue.

Rick Petrie    March 9, 2014 at 12:34am

DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS AND "spring forward" tonight... you wouldn't want to miss the start of the Sunday League event by one hour!


Rick Petrie    March 9, 2014 at 12:07am

I believe I'm behind on congratulating three people for recent Aces.. so here goes. Nice work Austin, Alan & Adam... apparently the "A Team", in more ways than one.

Hey everyone! If you haven't already heard, the K-State disc golf team earned a bid for the 2014 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships held in April. In order to finance the tournament expenses, the club has arranged to order fundraiser t-shirts. You may reserve a t-shirt now by making a contribution of $15. T-shirts will only be guaranteed to those that reserve a shirt prior to placing the order. Thanks!
Here is the sample design: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0dgJ-mhNBbyODlpYnRLMmc2ZFk/edit?usp=sharing

Here is your chance to have some input on our 2014 "Break the Chains" tournament discs. I will be placing the order tomorrow... Friday, March 7th. We are ordering Innova discs this year, but can also order Discmania discs. We will only be able to order 3 or 4 models because of quantity requirements. So, let me know what Innova or Discmania discs you would like to see. Let me know in the next 24 hours....

Rick Petrie    March 6, 2014 at 1:08pm

They're looking pretty awesome so far... if I do say so myself.


Rick Petrie    March 6, 2014 at 7:26am

Also of note, this week is the last Sunday DFOK league event for the "Winter Points Season"!

Meeting Reminder: Tonight at the Manhattan Public Library.
Can't make it by the start time? No problem. Better late than not at all.

nick samuelson   March 6, 2014 at 6:26pm

sorry Rick I had a couple things come up I'm not gonna be able to make it to the meeting tonightlike I thought I was really wanting to come

Rick Petrie   March 6, 2014 at 11:43pm

No problem... we still had a good group tonight. Hopefully you can make it to the next one (which was set tonight for Thur. March 27th).

Rick Petrie   March 6, 2014 at 11:45pm

By the way, I'll post notes from tonight's meeting soon. Lots of good stuff was discussed, plus some good decisions made too.

Rick Petrie    March 2, 2014 at 10:33am

Today's Winter Weather Warning has been downgraded to an Advisory.
However, I do not plan to "un-cancel" today's league events because of the dangerously cold temperatures. The predicted high temp. for today is 7 degrees... and the National Weather Service is saying "Wind chills will range from Negative 10 to Negative 20 degrees".

If you have strong points why today's league should be "un-canceled", please post them here ASAP.

Thank You.

Ahhh Travis, weather is relative... we would have wrote our league rules accordingly if it took place in Ames.

Travis Bailey   March 3, 2014 at 2:55pm

Haha, I had fun. Wasn't too bad the second day.

Rick Petrie   March 3, 2014 at 7:42pm

Ya. Looks like you southern boys crush em.

Rick Petrie    March 1, 2014 at 9:06am

Go play disc golf today, while it's still safe out there!


Rick Petrie    March 1, 2014 at 9:02am

Winter Storm Warning for Sunday = No League SUNDAY (as per official league rules). See league rules or DFOK News for more information.
