BTW, I reposted today's DFOK to include Scott's name, then deleted the old news post.

Feel free to re-post your comments under the new news thread.

My apologies for blowing up everybody's discgolfscene News feed & the DFOK Tab, but this is a HUGE week for us...



Okay, on to my actual content. If you can spare a long level (2'-4') for Saturday's Workday, please bring it along. I've got two, but a couple more would be ideal. (We need them to make sure the center posts are perfectly plumb).



Otherwise I think we're good on tools... but bring tools if you're dying to do so.

Fairmont Expansion Update:

I am pleased to announce that this morning RL County Parks was on-site digging basket locations in preparation for our club work-day this Saturday. Yes, I was on-site to ensure all of them went exactly where we wanted them.



I'll post an official update & maybe even some action photos later tonight.

!!!LOST DISC UPDATE!!! So...at Tuttle Tuesday I saw my mint green destroyer in the creek on hole 5, and decided to go back after the round to get it. After getting there and wading the creek for about 30 minutes, it was gone. What I did notice though, while driving over, we're 2 college aged kids drying off at their truck. Looked to be a white dodge Dakota or small sized pick up truck like it. Both had short hair and were skinny...I know it's not a lot to go off, but if anyone knows of anyone ... more

Hey everyone. Let's help Rob out here (if possible).

Rick Petrie   August 1, 2013 at 1:57pm

BTW, Whew! I drive a Dakota, but "skinny" & "college aged" was a long time ago for me.

Rick Petrie   August 1, 2013 at 2:58pm

Minty! Minty! Good one Clouse!

Mark Kewley    July 31, 2013 at 10:54pm

If you are interested in an Innova Disc Carrier bag with Phoenix Quad Shock straps, the Buy Now price is $65. Feel free to make offers. I might agree to the right combination of plastic and $.

!!!LOST DISC ALERT!!!



Lost a mint green destroyer in the creek on hole 5 at Tuttle this evening. Went out with my brother in law for a round in the rain and think I put it right in the drink. Tried to wade through and find it but it was waist high...so I couldn't get too far in. A reward awaits it's return if anyone finds it!

Jacob Strait    July 28, 2013 at 2:20pm

Let's get a round in today....anyone planning on playing today?

Ben Nispel   July 28, 2013 at 2:44pm

Me Tim and Mitch are going to get a round on at Tuttle if anyone would like to join! Probably around 3:30

Austin Cranston   July 28, 2013 at 2:45pm

If its not raining I'm down for a round

Ben Nispel   July 28, 2013 at 3:55pm

We'll be there at 4

Mark Kewley    July 27, 2013 at 8:15pm

I used the Schedule a Round on the main page to make a group for the work day on August 3rd. I thought we could get a virtual head count.

Rick Petrie   July 27, 2013 at 8:39pm

Good plan Mark. I'll go "RSVP".

Rick Petrie   July 27, 2013 at 8:41pm

Yep there it is --> http://www.discgolfscene.com The more the merrier... and the quicker we can play the New & Improved Fairmont Park DG Course!

Rick Petrie    July 25, 2013 at 12:38am

For those of you who do not follow the "News" tab from Disc Fanatics of Kansas you might want to read tonight's posting about Fairmont Park. ( http://www.discgolfscene.com/clubs/Disc_Fanatics_of_Kansas/news )



We are one step closer!



Also, please consider finding time in your schedule for Tomorrow evening (6:30p) and/or Saturday morning (9:00a) to finalize pin placements. Then again Aug. 3rd & 4th to help with the big workdays.



Thanks,

Rick

In other words, nearly all of the placements should be going pretty much right where the current wood lath is located. However some will need to be fine tuned for their final location.

Rick Petrie   July 25, 2013 at 6:16pm

Rain or shine tonight is still on. (it's not like we're trying to play a round of golf or even throw discs... it's just a little design work. Hope to see y'll there.

Rick Petrie   July 26, 2013 at 8:21am

Thanks to everyone whomade it to Fairmont last night. Be sure to consider attending Saturday morning (starting at 9:00am) to get the exact spots forfinalized for construction.

Robert Adams    July 23, 2013 at 11:16am

Myself and Austin are heading down to Emporia tomorrow to play Jones East, West, and Peter Pan with some lunch in between somewhere. I have two more spots in my truck, three if you don't mind a tough squeeze. If anyone's interested in going give me a call or text @ 337-378-7262. Should be a good day for disc!

Robert Adams   July 23, 2013 at 11:50am

Mitchell Brenn grabbed a spot, only 1 left! 2 if you wanna ride knee to knee, haha.

Robert Adams   July 23, 2013 at 12:21pm

Meeting at 10:00 in the Best Buy Parkin lot, btw.

William Mitchell   July 23, 2013 at 10:26pm

Hey that's where I work! I would totally join but I'll be working til about noon.

Rick Petrie    July 22, 2013 at 9:48pm

I stopped by Fairmont Park after work today (which happens more often than not now) to check for progress.

More specifically, today I wanted to see if any of the underground utilities have been marked. Bad news: They are not.



Result: By them not being marked by now, it is becoming less & less likely the holes will get dug (drilled by bobcat) in time for a big workday this coming weekend (to install ground sleeves).



The final decision probably won't be made until Wednesday or Thursday, so I'll just have to keep you posted (here).

It was a fun afternoon of maybe the last "club" rounds played at Fairmont Park's "classic" original 9 hole layout... The following people were in attendance for the festivities. Mark Kewley Mitchell Brenn Jon Tveite Jake Straight Grant Wisdom Austin Cranston John Hindle & Myself Also in attendance was Adam Johnson Vinnie Johnson It was decided we should play as one large group in order to fully enjoy the experience. The first round was a straight up round of standard singles. Cons ... more

Jon Tveite   July 21, 2013 at 2:29pm

Which course?

nick samuelson   July 22, 2013 at 1:33pm

fairmount

Jacob Strait    July 21, 2013 at 11:41am

Anyone up for Tuttle today?

Permalink
Mark Kewley   July 21, 2013 at 11:57am

There is a round scheduled for 2:00 at Fairmont. It might be the last organized round there on the old layout.

Jacob Strait   July 21, 2013 at 12:05pm

Sounds good

William Mitchell    July 20, 2013 at 11:13pm

Anyone going to Little River, KS for they're relief tournament?

Permalink
William Mitchell   July 20, 2013 at 11:29pm

sorry meant "their" not "they're"

Josh Carroll   July 20, 2013 at 11:30pm

I'll be there! Coming up from hometown Hutchinson with some of the local guys. It'd be great to see some Manhattan folk there, if only to check out this gem of a course! If you can't make it tomorrow, be sure to keep the weekend of August 17-18th open. Hutchinson's Salt City Open on Saturday and Little River's Redskin Rendezvous on Sunday, both KDGA Oz Tour events.

Rick Petrie    July 20, 2013 at 8:19pm

So, I managed to FRY my phone today. What a pain in the neck!

Rick Petrie   July 20, 2013 at 8:26pm

In other words, don't bother calling or texting me until you hear otherwise. (at least I've still got my home computer)

Rick Petrie   July 21, 2013 at 9:02am

I actually "fixed" my phone! I watched some YouTube videos then tore into it! I had nothing to lose & thought "why not?"

Mark Kewley   July 21, 2013 at 11:59am

MacGyver

Jon Tveite    July 19, 2013 at 12:13pm

There has been some interest expressed in playing the original Fairmont layout as a group before the course redesign becomes permanent. Holes that will be completely going away: #2, #4, #6, #9. Holes that will be substantially changed: #3, #5.



How about sometime on Sunday? My preference would be late morning or early afternoon. Any thoughts? If I don't get any feedback by this evening I will just pick a time and post it here.

I'm going to play at 2:00. Be there or be square, as some used to say.

Mark Kewley   July 21, 2013 at 10:27am

I'll be there a little early to test drive a few discs.

Kevin Clouse   July 21, 2013 at 11:02am

Anybody interested in taking some baskets out to play some front nine holes?

Alan Fox    July 18, 2013 at 9:13pm

Alan Fox and Michael King took 5th with -1



Ross Jones and John Heley took 4th with -4



Scott Collins and Billy Mitchell took 3rd with -5



Mitch Brenn and Grant Wisdom took 2nd with -11



And 1st place goes to Jake Strait and Mark Kewley shooting -12



Nice job guys had a blast

Most people have a few discs that they want to trade. I think it would be cool to have a monthly "League" where we play this format.

Mitchell Brenn   July 19, 2013 at 9:26pm

I liked this format a lot. I always have a few decent discs just not being used and this was a great way to "play and trade." Also I liked that everyone got something at the end, even if you got last place.

Jacob Strait   July 21, 2013 at 11:40am

We are such studs Mark!

Mark Kewley    July 17, 2013 at 10:57pm

FYI: I will be in Westmoreland on Friday afternoon if anyone wants to meet at the park for a round.

Kevin RevKev Clark   July 18, 2013 at 2:32pm

Never been there. What's it like?

Mark Kewley   July 18, 2013 at 4:38pm

Small town park. Very short holes. Kind of Fun.

Mark Kewley   July 19, 2013 at 2:35pm

I'm headed there to take care of vehicle registration. I should be in the park in around an hour.
