The DiscGolfKansas.com Drive Analysis fundraiser for Fairmont Park First of all, DiscGolfKansas.com is not a business. It is just a domain name I own that usually points at DFOK stuff & etc. It just sounds more credible than “The Mark Kewley Drive Analysis”. How it works: I will film you throwing drives and provide you with a DVD containing video of you at full speed and in slow motion. Example: http://youtu.be/FpQV_OAy8b0 Actual videos will be better quality. If you want to ... more

Mark, I think anybody can link an "album" of theirs to the "photo" tab of the tournament. Just go to your album, then look for the "Event" button to tie them together.

A donation to the DFOK Fairmont Expansion Project from the 2012 -2013 Glow League.

Today at the DFOK Fairmont Fundraiser Tournament the “basket illumination” fund was turned over to Rick Petrie to go towards the DFOK portion of expense for the project. The short version is DFOK has $61 more for Fairmont. More Information: http://home.wamego.net/kewley/dfok/documents/glow2012-2013.pdf

Thanks to all who helped run today's Fairmont Fundraiser Tournament. Thanks to all who signed up and played in todays tournament too.



Your participation and hard work is helping us get closer to getting that course built!



Last but not least, my apologies to anyone who I could not complete a conversation with. Duty called often. I look forward to seeing you again soon!

Don't forget to bring an extra $5 spot to by (optional) "Dot Dollars".

It's an opportunity to "erase" some of your bad throws today, and help expand a disc golf course.

Rise & shine everyone. Today's a great day to raise some money for our Fairmont Disc Golf Expansion Project.



Rain or shine, I look forward to seeing all of you at the course today!

Do you have an all metal basket that you can bring tomorrow by 8:30AM?



If we had 1 more we can do something really cool!!!

Mark Kewley    May 3, 2013 at 10:31pm

Hey DFOK,

If you can get to Fairmont early to help put out these baskets, please do. Like Rick said, they are all metal. It's going to take some effort to get them placed. We ran into some people tonight that came from Iowa for this. Let's try to get the new holes set up so guests from out of town can get a walk through before the tournament! I'll try to be there by 8:00 at the latest. Probably before that.

Rick Petrie   May 3, 2013 at 10:38pm

Great plan Mark. We want to minimize how long our guests from Iowa are out wandering around without baskets.

shaun chambers   May 4, 2013 at 12:41am

will be there at 830 to help

Mark Kewley   May 4, 2013 at 7:23am

Thanks Shaun

Rick Petrie    May 3, 2013 at 9:59am

I am pleased to announce that tomorrow's tournament will feature 18 baskets of the all metal variety.



Any volunteers interested in helping Kewley & Clouse get the baskets perfectly placed would be greatly appreciated. Please 30 min. prior to check-in to help (that's 8:30 to 9:00).

Shout out to the following people for working the DFOK table at last night's Convention & Visitors Bureau event.

- Josh Carroll

- Bill Pryor

- Mark Kewley

- Jon Tveite

- yeah, me too



Making contact with potential fairway sponsors, getting some air time on a local radio station about our club & Fairmont project, not to mention educating tons of people about disc golf in general... was time well spent!

18 Permanent Baskets at Fairmont!!!



In order to install permanent baskets on these fun new holes at Fairmont, DFOK needs to come up with our share of the project costs. Riley County has given us the green light to start our expansion project fundraising. If you know of someone that might want to sponsor a fairway or half a fairway, you can download the information and forms at http://DFOK.US



Or just click here: http://home.wamego.net/kewley/dfok/documents/Fairmont/FairmontDiscGolfSponsorship.pdf



The sooner we get it paid for the sooner we’ll be playing it.

i heard it wasnt at the zoo.... they been talking about it on the radio that its been moved to some nature building

Rick Petrie   May 2, 2013 at 9:32pm

Yep.That's at the Sunset Zoo. Did you hear the live radio spot they did about disc golf?

Rick Petrie    April 29, 2013 at 10:12am

If you're around a radio at 9:30am today, you might want to tune in 1350am.

Disc golf is likely to come up in their conversation.

**** LOST DFOK BAG TAG ALERT ****

This week I heard that DFOK Tag #10 has been lost. I also heard that it has been recovered by a different player.



If you have this tag please contact me as we would love to get it back into the current owners hands. I will be more than happy to meet you somewhere to pick it up.



If someone asks you if you can get this tag back to it's owner, please take it then contact me to arrange a pick-up.



Thanks,

Rick

Good News! The lost tag has been found & returned to it's current holder... Thanks to Bob Saber!

Rick Petrie    April 26, 2013 at 9:44am

Shout out to William Mitchell & Kevin Clouse for helping at last night's impromptu Fairmont Workday.

Thanks to last night's efforts, we now have a much cleaner #2 fairway, plus no more knuckle buster tree at the front of the #6 tee pad.

Thats cool. But i think we should put one at the teebox to 14 at tuttle. that way you can restock once you put one in the lake.

Rick Petrie   April 27, 2013 at 8:14am

Josh, That's hilarious & so true. Maybe the bottom rack in the vending machine could be used discs pulled from the lake. (ha)

Rick Petrie    April 25, 2013 at 1:18pm

This is not exactly "news", so I thought I would post it here.



Riley County has begun removing our brush piles from Fairmont Park.



Yeah!
