Has anybody played at holton how is the course?

Rick Petrie   July 13 at 2:08pm

Not me, but I'm very curious. It would be a place for me to play when I go that way to visit family. It would be great to get a review from you so I know what it's like. :-)

Jacob Strait    July 11 at 7:10pm

Anyone playing at Tuttle tonight?


Daisuke Takahashi    July 8 at 10:29pm

For those of you interested, there will be one-day tournament "Midwest Amateur Championships" at Rosedale and Water works in KC. Saturday, August 3rd. http://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/Dynamic_Discs_Presents_the_Midwest_Amateur_Championships_2013

From what I saw, the player pack will be nice ones for a B-tier event.

1-2 Discs


Dri Fit Shirt (Bonus for those registered by July 18th)

Re-usable Score Card with mechanical golf pencil



Other odds and ends

I have some scoop on the Fairmont Park project... I should have some big news by mid week...

In the mean time, please start looking at July 27th & 28th, and/or Aug. 3rd & 4th on your calendar.

Rick Petrie   July 9 at 12:39am

I probably should have elaborated. These are projected work days for us to install Innova equipment at Fairmont Park!

Rick Petrie    July 7 at 6:50pm

Found on Current #2 Fairmont:

Yellow Innova DX Cheetah stuck in a tree (left it). Might have to call the FD ladder truck to get that cat down.


Innova F2 (Factory 2nd) blizzard disc. If you can name the disc + stamp color, I'll get it to you asap.


Alan Fox    July 7 at 4:40pm

the boatman is yellow with red stamp

Alan Fox   July 8 at 9:07am

so what should i do with his disc mark?

Mark Kewley   July 8 at 11:42am

He has been here the last 2 years. I guess you can play with it until he comes back to Kansas?

Rick Petrie    July 6 at 8:51am

One week from today I'll be headed to the Sunflower State Games disc golf tournament. Saturday is the doubles format, played just like our Tuttle Tuesday best disc format, however you bring your teammate. Sunday is a standard singles tournament. You can sign up and play in one of the two tournaments for $25 or both for $35. If you medal (top 3 (bronze, sliver, gold)), you'll be qualified to play in the 2014 State Games of America. Personally I love playing in the Doubles event... mainly beca ... more

All the Sunflower State Games events/competitions take place in the Topeka area. The disc golf tournament is at Crestview course. http://sunflowergames.com/disc-golf

Ben Nispel   July 6 at 12:37pm

Awesome, Hopefully Tim will head down with me and we'll see you there!

Austin Cranston   July 6 at 4:01pm

Any chance of a car pool?

Alan Fox    July 5 at 3:14pm

Disc golf at Tuttle anyone?


Alan Fox    July 4 at 11:20am

For anyone wondering all holed are up at Tuttle except hole 10

Rick Petrie   July 4 at 12:39pm

Is there something in the way preventing them from re-installing #10? They've been known to forget to return all 18 baskets... lost in their storage lot I suppose. LOL!

Daisuke Takahashi   July 4 at 12:45pm

Thanks for update.

Alan Fox   July 4 at 9:03pm

theyvhave cone over the placement so idk

nick samuelson    July 4 at 10:56am

does anybody know if tuttle is back up?

Alan Fox   July 4 at 11:19am

yes it is

Josh Parker   July 4 at 11:42am

yeah played lastnight

Rick Petrie    July 3 at 8:52pm

Hey all you 2012-2013 DFOK Points League Champions, please tell me you received your $10 Discs Unlimited gift certificates (via email). I sent them out back on the 19th, but haven't heard a peep out of anyone receiving them (except for Bill).

Kevin Clouse   July 3 at 9:23pm

Hey I got mine Rick! Cool prize for tag league!

Austin Cranston    July 3 at 12:28pm

I'm sure there will be a car pool for the state games for the first day doubles, but will there be one for singles the next day?

William Mitchell   July 4 at 12:08am

Check with Clouse. He needs a push to enter in this tournament.

Mitchell Brenn    July 3 at 11:15am

Would anyone be willing to teach me how to push putt? I've watching this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_7RPOmSSsU and others and I just don't get it when I try to implement it in real life.

I'll be there.

William Mitchell   July 4 at 12:10am

around 930

Rick Petrie   July 4 at 9:16am

See y'all soon.

Kevin Zane    July 2 at 11:24pm

I have a couple guys I'm waiting on for a response about a doubles partner for the Sunflower State Games... anyone interested if they don't pull through??

Rick Petrie   July 4 at 8:49am

FYI, There is a residency requirement for the Sunflower State Games. You have to be a Kansas resident to participate, partially because it is a qualifying event for the State Games of America.

Kevin Zane   July 5 at 12:34am

....well, one of those guys got back to me and we will be out there saturday and sunday. Good luck everyone.

Rick Petrie   July 5 at 7:23pm

Cool Zane. DFOK domination of the SSG! (ya, you're still a DFOKer in my mind).

Rick Petrie    July 1 at 11:32pm

Basket A.P.B. for Fairmont tomorrow night. Oh, and all are welcome to play league while you're there.



Rick Petrie    June 28 at 8:21am

For those of you who do not read or have opted out of the official DFOK News emails, I thought I would post an update here.

At approx. 6:00pm last night, we received our last Half Fairway donation, thus completing our Fairmont Disc Golf Course Fairway Sponsorship Campaign!


Stay tuned for construction updates, scheduled club work days, etc.

It's going to be an exciting July & August for Disc Golf in Manhattan, KS!


Mark Kewley    June 26 at 7:47pm

I forgot to mention at league... I found an Excal with no name at Fairmont the other day.


Rick Petrie    June 26 at 8:55am

Lost Disc Alert:

I threw it On The Wild Side of the fence on new fairway #3.

It's a mostly white with tie-dye swirl Wraith (champion plastic).

Otherwise known as the perfect pattern to lose in tall grass. :-)

Rick Petrie   June 30 at 6:51pm

FOUND. Three guys were playing the new layout (sign-to-sign style) and found my lost Wraith. I just happened to ask them if they found a Wraith over the fence, they said yes, then handed it to me. Awesome!

Rick Petrie    June 26 at 7:40am

In all the preround fundrasing lastnight, I forgot to mention this week's DFOK Meeting.

So here goes.

Thursday, June 27th (tomorrow)


Manhattan Public Library

at intersection on Poyntz & Juliette.

Hope to see you there.


scott collins    June 24 at 11:41am

I am willing to start another $50 group to sponsor a half fariway at Fairmont. I need 4 more people to get in on this with me. And as I have been informed by Rick time is of the essence so lets get this money together so we can have our names etched in metal forever.

thats great alan

Rick Petrie   June 25 at 11:10am

Scott, Jon is up to speed with this, I think he just wanted everyone to know what they are agreeing to/what recognition they're getting for their donation.

Rick Petrie   June 25 at 10:49pm

FYI, Alan finished up this group of five tonight before doubles league. Good Job Alan! Watch for official DFOK News later tonight.
