In Manhattan? I'm playing at Fairmont around 6ish.

Troy Pike   August 21, 2013 at 5:35pm

If you dont mind I may come on out... new to town wanting to play with some ppl

Kevin Clouse   August 21, 2013 at 6:07pm

ya come on out...i will be there at 6. i drive a gold buick

Mark Kewley    August 19, 2013 at 10:13pm

So… If we didn’t move the basket on hole 1 to the long placement, there is a very good chance Tim Nispel would have hit it tonight.



Remember that line Tim :)

And if you hadn't moved the basket back, maybe I wouldn't have had a SIX on my first attempt at that hole with a permanent basket. But I think there will be other sixes in my future there....

I found this long news piece on disc golf through the Gotta Go, Gotta Throw Facebook feed (they are a major Minnesota retailer featured in the video). It raises some interesting issues about the growth of the sport, and I thought people here might want to see it: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2013/08/18/disc-golfs-popularity-exploding-for-better-for-worse/.

I agree with you Jon, we should cool it with this disc golf propaganda before it gets out of control.

Jon Tveite   August 20, 2013 at 11:57am

Well, I didn't say I agreed with anything in particular. I just thought it was interesting that this "debate" is taking place on a local network station in a major media market. Being a music fan, I am very familiar with the analogy the young reporter is making, and I tend to agree with those who think that expansion is good for the sport.

Mark Kewley   August 20, 2013 at 10:26pm

I know what you didn't say :)

Alan Fox    August 19, 2013 at 1:34am

Just a reminder today AUGUST 19th at Fairmont we are going to be having a swap meet (disc trading ) at 5 30 then we are going to flip for teams and play doubles for disc so bring a disc to put in the pile to choose from and bring discs to trade for

I don't think I can make it tonight, but if you guys have Z-, ESP-, or FLX-Buzzz (>175g) that you can part with, let me know. I have some discs available for trade if you're interested in.

Rick Petrie    August 18, 2013 at 8:46pm

Hello all Fairmont frenzied players. Tee pads #1, #4, #9 thru 18, have now been marked for concrete tee pads.



Please do your best to not knock down the white flags, or alter the tacked down orange ribbon on the ground. If these things get out of whack, it could cause delays (by confusing the non-player construction workers).

Alan Fox   August 19, 2013 at 1:27am

should of used spray paint instead then u wouldnt have to worry bout the ribbons getting destroyed

Rick Petrie   August 19, 2013 at 6:06pm

We used paint also, but I'm not going to ask people to stay off that... not really possible.

Mark Kewley    August 18, 2013 at 7:42pm

Bring your extra discs to Fairmont tomorrow night, Monday the 19th 5:30 for a swap meet. Then a doubles round.

Rick Petrie   August 18, 2013 at 8:00pm

You should play triples, with a "verify" putt to close out each hole...

Mark Kewley   August 18, 2013 at 8:26pm

Cali dot

Rick Petrie   August 18, 2013 at 8:36pm

No. Not cali-dot. (Boo!) Just Verify putts.

Mark Kewley    August 16, 2013 at 9:28pm

I'll be at Fairmont tomorrow morning to do some cleanup on 1,2 & 6 so we can play the long placements. It will probably be after 10:00.

Mark Kewley   August 17, 2013 at 10:42am

stuck at work. I'll be there later.

Mark Kewley   August 17, 2013 at 1:49pm

I'm going there soon.

Alan Fox    August 15, 2013 at 5:43pm

Troy, you'll probably want to catch up with this guy when he gets back to Manhattan next week. ( http://www.discgolfscene.com/profile/16843 ) ... K-State DC Club.

Troy Pike   August 15, 2013 at 11:03pm

Thanks Rick. Played Fairmont today... Its changed A LOT since last month and it looks great

Rick Petrie   August 15, 2013 at 11:37pm

Glad you liked it, but it still a work in progress. We assembled and installed 10 of those baskets one week ago tonight. We're not done though. Awesome looking permanent signage is in the works, plus concrete tee pad construction will be starting very soon...

Mark Kewley    August 13, 2013 at 11:34pm

I just scheduled a round at Warner on the main page of DGS: http://www.discgolfscene.com/



It has been a while since I have been there. Disc Exchange Round?

I'd love to come, but when you post these links they are just links to the homepage? What time are you thinking?

Josh Carroll   August 14, 2013 at 12:11pm

Same issue that Mitchell was having yesterday. Scheduled rounds will not show unless you are "friends" with the person who scheduled the round.

Mark Kewley   August 14, 2013 at 5:48pm

around 5:30

Josh Carroll    August 13, 2013 at 9:25pm

I definitely don't have that lol. Any idea why?

Josh Carroll   August 12, 2013 at 2:51pm

I'd imagine it has something to do with the fact that you and Mark aren't "friends" on DiscGolfScene.

http://www.discgolfscene.com/profile/15417   August 12, 2013 at 3:56pm

I'm in but will leave around 7.

Rick Petrie    August 10, 2013 at 2:29pm

Sorry for that re-re-posting of the News a few minutes ago.

I used to be able to edit News posts, but the web-page no longer has that capability.



First I noticed one misspelled name, then I realized I omitted a different name all together...

William Mitchell   August 9, 2013 at 9:09pm

birdied hole 6. Probably the only time I'll do that at its current placement.

Rick Petrie    August 9, 2013 at 2:24pm

I went to Fairmont on my lunch break today to label the baskets that can be labeled right now (long stort there).



While there I found a couple tiny end wrenches on a baskets. I think they were left behind by someone this morning. ..



Let me know if they are yours so I can get them back to you.

Shout out to all who assisted in tonight's Fairmont Park Disc Golf Course Remodel & Expansion tasks. It was great to see yet another strong showing of DFOK'ers working to improve one of our courses. A special thanks to Bill Pryor for going the extra mile(s) by leaving to find, then purchase, a couple replacement nuts & bolts. I plan to post official DFOK news tomorrow some time... But in the mean time, I hope you can find time to go enjoy the new 18 hole layout. Good night, Rick P. ... more
