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 ... more

I have a feeling they grabbed my destroyer and haven't called. I've got 4 days to track em down and get minty back! Normally I'd let the disc go, but this one was a go to...thanks guys.

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!

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

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.

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!

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 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. Considering it was very much a casual round, I we agreed players did not have to publish their specific scores.
The following people stayed around for a second round.
The second round was played as a best disc Triples team format, with a "Verify Putt" (aka prove it putt) requirement to complete each hole. In other words, two players had to make the last shot in order to finish each hole. Otherwise you'd take the best shot not in the basket. (Team Mitch & Austin played under slightly modified rules to compensate for not having a third teammate.) After a full round, both teams were tied, requiring an extra hole to determine the winning team.

Anyone going to Little River, KS for they're relief tournament?
Rick Petrie July 20, 2013 at 8:19pm
So, I managed to FRY my phone today. What a pain in the neck!
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.
