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.



Rick Petrie    June 28, 2013 at 8:21am

For those of you who do not read or have opted out of the official DFOK News emails, I thought I would post an update here.
At approx. 6:00pm last night, we received our last Half Fairway donation, thus completing our Fairmont Disc Golf Course Fairway Sponsorship Campaign!
Stay tuned for construction updates, scheduled club work days, etc.

It's going to be an exciting July & August for Disc Golf in Manhattan, KS!


Mark Kewley    June 26, 2013 at 7:47pm

I forgot to mention at league... I found an Excal with no name at Fairmont the other day.


Rick Petrie    June 26, 2013 at 8:55am

Lost Disc Alert:
I threw it On The Wild Side of the fence on new fairway #3.
It's a mostly white with tie-dye swirl Wraith (champion plastic).
Otherwise known as the perfect pattern to lose in tall grass. :-)

Rick Petrie   June 30, 2013 at 6:51pm

FOUND. Three guys were playing the new layout (sign-to-sign style) and found my lost Wraith. I just happened to ask them if they found a Wraith over the fence, they said yes, then handed it to me. Awesome!

Rick Petrie    June 26, 2013 at 7:40am

In all the preround fundrasing lastnight, I forgot to mention this week's DFOK Meeting.
So here goes.
Thursday, June 27th (tomorrow)
Manhattan Public Library
at intersection on Poyntz & Juliette.

Hope to see you there.

I am willing to start another $50 group to sponsor a half fariway at Fairmont. I need 4 more people to get in on this with me. And as I have been informed by Rick time is of the essence so lets get this money together so we can have our names etched in metal forever.

thats great alan

Rick Petrie   June 25, 2013 at 11:10am

Scott, Jon is up to speed with this, I think he just wanted everyone to know what they are agreeing to/what recognition they're getting for their donation.

Rick Petrie   June 25, 2013 at 10:49pm

FYI, Alan finished up this group of five tonight before doubles league. Good Job Alan! Watch for official DFOK News later tonight.

Rick Petrie    June 20, 2013 at 10:23pm

Hey everybody, the Sunflower State Games disc golf tournament (in Topeka) is only 3 weeks away.

It offers one of the few doubles tournaments Kansas each year, on Saturday. The a standard rules Singles event on the following Sunday. If you medal (1st, 2nd or 3rd) you are then qualified to participate in the State Games of America!

Greeting on this Thursday lunch hour (for me at least). I have some news that's still "developing", but not locked down with check in hand just yet. Therefore I'm going to keep it vague and post it on this Talk tab. This morning I received another verbal commitment for a Full Fairway! Considering the organization, it's a 95% lock! That means we only have 2 more fairways to go! (Technically it's shown as 1 Full + 2 Half fairways, but we can do some shuffli ... more

Rick Petrie   June 20, 2013 at 2:41pm

Revise that. one more Half fairway sponsor locked in their spot over the lunch hour today. We're in the home stretch now! Unly 1.5 fairways to go!

Travis Bailey    June 18, 2013 at 4:30am

After not playing Warner in nearly 1.5 months, I've learned that the new hazards on hole 6 like to eat discs. Took me a solid 30 minutes to find it. Avoid them at all costs. Haha!


Rick Petrie    June 17, 2013 at 6:45pm

Calling all portable baskets for tomorrow night's Manhattan Area Doubles League (temporarily) at Fairmont Park.

Use the "Talk" page on the Doubles League page to RSVP.


Mark Kewley    June 16, 2013 at 6:41pm

If anyone is planning on going through Herington let me know.

I have a bunch of discs from Miltonvale to go back.

scott collins   June 18, 2013 at 6:32am

if you bring them to league tonight I can take them and drop them off Wednesday

Damen W   June 19, 2013 at 1:15pm

thank you!

Hello All,
A local Geocash enthusiast, that I met a while back while promoting disc golf, has asked me to pass along information about an upcoming event. It is called "The KC Disc Golf And Geocaching Mashup".

It is set to take place at "Lake Olathe from 8AM to 5PM on the 22nd of June". From the sounds of things it combines Disc Golf with Geochashing. It sounds like it could be pretty interesting, however I will not be able to attend.

For more information follow this link ---> http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=3f00b36c-07b6-44c5-ab30-12802e79d5ac


Rick Petrie    June 14, 2013 at 8:11pm

Anybody care to join me tomorrow morning to do a little light work at Fairmont? We need to rake some recently cut leaves of the "fairway" areas of #2 & "6. Don't worry, it won't even take an hour if we have 3 or 4 people. I'll even bring rakes. I've got enough for 5 DFOKers.

Ya know we need it clear for Tuesday night.


Alan Fox    June 12, 2013 at 6:29pm

If anyone knows anyone who lost a set of car keys out at Fairmont let me know Me and Roberto Santiago were playing today and he found a set of keys

Rick Petrie   June 12, 2013 at 6:34pm

Hey everyone. Help these keys get back to their owner.

Rick Petrie    June 12, 2013 at 1:21am

Found: Clouse disc on #13. Glow Innova driver of some sort. I'll get it back to you ASAP.
Found: My drive from #16 tonight. Turns out I bombed it out to the water!

Lost: My neon green, KDGA stamp, Innova Champion driver. It should be "just off the bank" on #13.

Sweet action

Rick Petrie   June 12, 2013 at 12:25am

I really enjoyed playing the Pre-Stampede Tuttle course tonight. The added "danger" of the temp. fences a couple weeks each year make playing it a real treat.

Rick Petrie   June 12, 2013 at 12:26am

By the way. It was decided that starting next week, the Tuttle Tuesdays will be temporarily re-located to Fairmont Park. Yes, we will be playing the newly remodeled full 18 hole course. Stay tuned for details.

Alan Fox    June 7, 2013 at 12:19pm

Okay so time is set 4:30pm Saturday at Tuttle Creek bring your discs to sell/trade or money to buy aka a swap meet. After its done I know most of us are gonna play a round. The more the better so spread the word

hope to see a good amount of people

Rick Petrie   June 8, 2013 at 3:18pm

Unless I get really lazy, I'm probably going to bring my welder to fix basket #18. Hopefully a guy or two can help me steady the basket for a couple minutes...

Rick Petrie   June 8, 2013 at 3:22pm

... and I am going to bring some discs, a small DG bag, a new Innova Hat & mixed brand DG shirts too (never worn tourney payout swag).

Alan Fox    June 6, 2013 at 1:38am

Say something ...Anyone want to meet out at Tuttle around noon this Saturday and do some buy/sell/and trades? Be a good time to get rid of stuff you don't throw and have a chance to get into a whole bag of stuff you will throw?

Sounds good. I will just come straight there after work.

Alan Fox   June 6, 2013 at 12:59pm

good deal man.... let others no that would be interested as well

Rick Petrie   June 6, 2013 at 8:12pm

Kinda short notice for me. I've already got plans for Saturday afternoon/evening. I'll see if I can fit it in though.u00a0

Alan Fox    June 5, 2013 at 10:00pm

Are there any good tourneys going on July 20th in Kansas?

Rick Petrie   June 5, 2013 at 10:10pm

The KDGA Schedule is showing "Saturday, July 20- Ellsworth". See here --> http://kansasdiscgolf.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=4762

Alan Fox   June 5, 2013 at 10:13pm
