Anybody else hear that? It's the sound of our new Innova disc golf equipment making their way from the South Carolina plant.

Later tonight I'll post official DFOK News outlining or upcoming work days, plus a DFOK Meeting set for Wednesday night.

I wish they posted all of the scores, rather than just the top three places. But considering all the scores for all the sports involved in the SSG, I can't blame them.

Ben Nispel   July 16, 2013 at 11:29am

Yeah, that would be nice. Did you ever hear how many total participants this event pulled in?

Rick Petrie   July 16, 2013 at 7:25pm

There were 80 total players on the Saturday doubles day. I did not hear the total from Sunday's singles event. I'm guessing there was 60 or so Sunday.

Darian Thomas    July 14, 2013 at 1:58pm

Anyone up for playing a round at Tuttle

Oh. Could be. I pre-paid for it all.

Darian Thomas   July 14, 2013 at 1:17am

Are their divisions like a regular tournament?

nick samuelson    July 13, 2013 at 1:39pm

Has anybody played at holton how is the course?

Rick Petrie   July 13, 2013 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, 2013 at 7:10pm

Anyone playing at Tuttle tonight?

Rick Petrie    July 8, 2013 at 8:37pm

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, 2013 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, 2013 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.
Also,
Innova F2 (Factory 2nd) blizzard disc. If you can name the disc + stamp color, I'll get it to you asap.

Alan Fox   July 8, 2013 at 9:07am

so what should i do with his disc mark?

Mark Kewley   July 8, 2013 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, 2013 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... m ... 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, 2013 at 12:37pm

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

Austin Cranston   July 6, 2013 at 4:01pm

Any chance of a car pool?

Alan Fox    July 5, 2013 at 3:14pm

Disc golf at Tuttle anyone?

Alan Fox    July 4, 2013 at 11:20am

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

Rick Petrie   July 4, 2013 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!

Rick Petrie    July 3, 2013 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, 2013 at 9:23pm

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

Austin Cranston    July 3, 2013 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?

Permalink
William Mitchell   July 4, 2013 at 12:08am

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

Mitchell Brenn    July 3, 2013 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.

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, 2013 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, 2013 at 7:23pm

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

Rick Petrie    July 1, 2013 at 11:32pm

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