Thanks to all who attended tonight's DFOK meeting.
A solid group of players were in attendance and a lot of plans were finalized.
Result: There's going to be a lot of cool disc golf stuff going on around here this fall & through the winter...
Official announcements including rules, schedules, etc. about those events will be posted here very soon.

Tuttle is back in full affect try out the new home 16 placement and let me know what you think Aldo just remember for now u can only get in the park by coming in the west entrance (or the dam) I'm gonna play a round maybe 2 if anyone wants in

Fixed hole 11 long since it was really tall,, put new placement on 14 since someone stole it, and put in a brand new placement for hole 16 at tuttle today! Hole 4 and 10s flags are being fixed as we speak!
Alan Fox October 2, 2013 at 7:11pm
Just so everyone is aware we have taken hole 4 and hole 10 from Tuttle to matc to get the flags that some Unpleasant name decided to break off also going to get some placements to fix the ones that have been taken and destroyed

Anybody available tonight to help move baskets to alternate pin placements? I'm talking Warner & Fairmont...
I'm pretty flexible on which course first & starting any time after 4:30ish.

Following the Chiefs game, I'm planning to walk Fairmont looking at ACE Race hole ideas. Anyone want to join me?
Rick Petrie September 29, 2013 at 11:47am
The first of the month is almost here...
Anybody want to help me Monday evening move some baskets to alternate placements?
(There's way to many at Fairmont & Warner for me to do them solo anymore.)
I'm thinking start at Warner around 5pm, then move to Fairmont next... but I'm flexible.
If you only want to help with some of them, that's okay. Any help will be appreciated.
Hit me up.

Rick Petrie, thanks for putting together the DFOK meeting at the Manhattan Public Library tonight!

ACE Race Reminder: You need to sign up by the 30th to play. That is 5 days!

LOST DISC ALERT! If anyone gets bored hole 9 at Warner I tried aceing the practice basket and my Nuke got stuck on top of the pavilion

Anybody interested in helping install the final two pin placements at Fairmont Park tomorrow morning?
It would be nice to finish up that part of the Fairmont Park couree expansion project.
It's going easy work, plus it is supposed to be nice and cool out, so it should take long at all.
How about starting around 10am? That should get us done by lunch time.

It's shaping up to be fun & busy fall season of disc golf activities in the Manhattan area.
Something for everyone...
I'm loving it!

I noticed that Manhattan KS is one of the latest additions on the ACE Race site: http://discgolfacerace.com/index.html Thanks RevKev!
If you would like to help set up the modified Fairmont ACE Race course and / or have a portable basket that could be used, send me a message through this website with your email address. Start thinking of some good holes we could set up!

Lost my phone at Fairmont last night (WED 18th)
William Mitchell September 14, 2013 at 5:51pm
Anyone want to play a round around 5:30 pm? The only catch is I need a ride to and from home...Anyone?
Troy Pike September 11, 2013 at 11:37pm
Hey does anyone around here plan on playing in the Mighty Shunga Tournament in Topeka on September 21-22?

I have a Fairmont Park on Disc Golf Scene question. In my opinion, the way discgolfscene.com shows a course with alternate pin placements is kind of "messed up". More specifically, when it comes to displaying fairway lengths... if you take a look, it only lets you enter one fairway length per fairway, even if you rotate baskets around from time to time. The only way around this is to have a course layout to choose from for every possible combination. Yikes! With that in mind, ... more

With that in mind, I think we should simply list the average length on each fairway. For example, the length for new Fairway #1 would be as follows: 356'+504'=860' then take 860' div. by 2 = 430'. Thus the fairway distance listed on discgolfscene.com for #1 would be 430'
(BTW, I'm not talking about changing the signs, official maps, etc. Only on discgolfscene.com )
