In today's mail was the check from Millennium Golf Discs for last weekend's DFOK Fairmont Fundraiser Tournament.

Later this evening (when I get more free time) I will post a financial summary of how last weekend's tournament benefitted our Fairmont Disc Golf Course expansion project.

probably gonna be in town tomorrow for most of the afternoon. Gonna try and play moon lake, Fairmont, warner, and tuttle if there is time...but we'll see how that goes. I doubt all that happens. I'll put up some info for the TootleToss tournament at warner.

I'm currently trying to get some extra spending cash for a trip to an orientation for a camp I'm working at this summer in Arkansas. It looks like I've got to sell some discs in order to do so. Message me if you are looking for something in particular and maybe I can hook someone up. Thanks!

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 ... more

If you want to see what you are doing right or wrong and help install the new holes at Fairmont sooner, let me know. I’m thinking a $10 donation for a DVD. 100% goes to the Fairmont project.
If I get enough interest, I’ll schedule a date to shoot some video.
Remember to tell people you know about the fairway sponsorship opportunity. There Will Not be Baskets on the new holes until we can pay for them.

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!
Rick Petrie May 4, 2013 at 8:34am
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.
Rick Petrie May 4, 2013 at 7:59am
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
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 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.

Check out our DFOK table at the Manhattan Sunset Zoo tonight.
We will be there among other local organizations as part of a expo.
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Bonus: FREE admission to the zoo!
