Disc Fanatics of Kansas

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?

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

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.
