Is there no Little Apple Open this year? I looked around a bit and couldn't find any info.

Zane, Did I read that right? "I'll be moving back to the Olathe area"?

Kevin Zane   March 8, 2013 at 4:58pm

You sure did Rick. Lisa got a great job offer and we are headed back asap. I'll try to make it to Manhattan as much as I can but hopefully I can talk some of you guys into KC trips too.

Jon Tveite   March 11, 2013 at 9:58am

Hey, that's cool. I guess Georgia's loss is Kansas's gain.

2012-2013 Glow League wrap-up It was a good ending to the season tonight. The wind calmed down and it was pretty nice out there. We played from basket to basket the first time around, then safari holes picked by the pad owner. The flashlight in the milk jug luminaries were a success. The initial batteries are still going after 10 rounds! I’m going to donate the items I bought. I need to talk with others that supplied equipment to see if they want reimbursed. The players at t ... more

no objections here sounds like a good idea to me!

I turned in the $61 from the glow league to Rick today. It will go into the DFOK Fairmont fund since we dont have a real "club treasury" yet.

Mark Kewley    March 4, 2013 at 8:57pm

Tomorrow is ***THE LAST GLOW LEAGE ROUND EVER***, this season. Tee time is 6:30 at Fairmont.

I will be there

Rick Petrie    March 2, 2013 at 8:02pm

Anybody made it out to Warner since the last snow fall? If so how are the tee pads looking?



(I was just wondering if the tee pads need to be scraped free of snow / ice for league tomorrow?)

Kevin RevKev Clark   March 2, 2013 at 9:27pm

I played on Friday. Most tee-pads have at least some dry cement.

Dimond Cutter   March 2, 2013 at 10:14pm

2,4,5,6,9 are mostly ice

Rick Petrie   March 3, 2013 at 10:36am

Thanks for the reports from the field. Those conditions are what I was afraid of (esp. 2, 6, 9).. I'll bring tools if anybody wants to show up early today to help clean tee pads...

Mark Kewley    February 26, 2013 at 8:55am

Glow in the snow? I was thinking about just going around 1 time. Anyone in?

Glow in the snow was a blast! Almost didn't need lights out there.

Alan Fox   February 27, 2013 at 12:14am

Agreed you proved it when you threw your driver without turning your light on haha

I'm going so I can get some practice for this week ends ICE BOWL

Rick Petrie    February 17, 2013 at 11:01pm

I want to send a special Thank You to everyone who attended today's DFOK Winter Bag Tag & Points league event. We did ourselves a big favor for being such a well organized & well behaved club/league today. Making good impressions with other members of our community will always help further our sport in the area... A little positive Disc Golf PR will go a long way. For those of you who were not in attendance, multiple people from the family who owns The Pathfinder outdoor store happened to ... more

Reminder: Group design round this afternoon at Fairmont Park. Starting at 1:30pm then come & go as you wish.

Mark Kewley    February 9, 2013 at 7:20pm

We should all thank Rick for providing the signs that are being used for the Fairmont design work. I'm sure he spent quite a bit of time + his own money for materials.

By the way... I spoke to Riley Co. again this week. They are unsure if they want the fairway sponsorship dollars go through their accounts, or have us handle those dollars somehow. There are more pros than cons in having the RL Co. accountants receive the funds. The two biggest benefits are: 1. As a government agency, they would not have to pay sales taxes on the baskets & misc. equipment. 2. Asking individuals & businesses to donate to our club is a tougher sell than to donate to the county. ... more

The highlight of the backward glow round at Fairmont tonight was Adam Johnson’s near ACE on the CTP hole. Playing from basket 5 to basket 4, he nailed the facemask and the disc dropped and sat under the basket.

Good Stuff!

Adam Johnson   February 5, 2013 at 11:22pm

thanks! it was definetly some beginners luck on newish course.

Josh Carroll   February 5, 2013 at 11:27pm

1's basket to 9's basket must have been nuts! :P

Jon Tveite   February 6, 2013 at 1:26pm

We didn't use baskets #3 or #9, but there were still some long and interesting holes, e.g. #2 to #1 (watch out, people on #7 and #8!), and #4 to #2. #7 to #6 was tricky because of the big cedar bush (you could only see the light from certain angles).

Rick Petrie    February 3, 2013 at 7:24pm

Light Bulb Moment! As many of you know, our Sunday league ended today with a couple hours of daylight remaining. So I thought I would run over to Fairmont Park and see if anything is going on in the expansion area. Adam was there working on his concept layout. Cool! This excited me because I knew he would be working on a "reverse" layout. In other words, entering and exiting the expansion area in the opposite locations we've used thus far. I will let Adam debut his "reverse" layout when ... more

New twist on Glow League this Tuesday.



You might find out about it at Bag Tag / Points League today?

Mark Kewley   February 3, 2013 at 8:48pm

As announced at Warner today, Tuesday night Glow League will be a little different this week. We will be playing Fairmont backwards basket to basket. Looks like it might not be real cold either.

Mark Kewley    January 30, 2013 at 11:26pm

Fairmont Design When I play the design layouts, here are a few things I’m looking at: Flow. Do you have to backtrack or cross other fairways? Safety. Are players or others in the line of fire, Blind corners, etc. Difficulty. With one tee, the holes need to be hard enough to challenge those of us that play all the time but not so evil they totally crush the souls of beginners. Entertainment. I want to have fun playing these holes. Other than that I would like to see s ... more

I think what Rick said about multiple pin placements is really key to everyone being happy with the back 9. We can make one placement very challenging and another placement that isn't as challenging but still fun to shoot at our for more advanced players a good ace run. We can balance the course with different placements...heck even different par scores if we want a couple par 4's.

Kevin Clouse   January 31, 2013 at 4:26pm

Dropping a few different pin placements in the front 9 would be something to look into as well. I think some tweaking of the tee pad placements on the front nine should be looked into as well.

Adam Johnson   January 31, 2013 at 11:09pm

while i like the list for the final design i would like these preliminary to be creative and unique. the final choice will likely be combination of the layouts.

Damen W    January 29, 2013 at 5:37pm

Miltonvale Tootletoss will now be a KDGA tour event...which unfortunately means it is no longer free...but will also have larger payouts and more divisions. In order to have more time to complete the tournament and less chaos in the park it has been moved to sat. May 25th. Mark your calendars and hope to see you there!! It will also now be two rounds of 18 holes.

Wow, that's a big deal. Congrats!

Nice. I'll try to make it!! That date will be probably a week before the LAO.

Mark Kewley   January 29, 2013 at 10:04pm

Good, more points for me :)

Mark Kewley    January 28, 2013 at 8:54pm

I had to go back outside and putt some more. It is still 64 degrees on my thermometer!

Rick Petrie    January 28, 2013 at 6:12pm

Jon, Kevin & Josh bring up interesting points. Some of which were discussed at great length at last Monday's design meeting (at the Manhattan Public Library). A sense of agreement was established at that meeting.



Knowing how many options we (our group of dedicated designers, fund raisers, lobbyists, etc.) want to explore, I spoke to my contact with Riley County. I have good news...



I will post that news after I have dinner tonight and take care of a few other things.



Until later,

Rick

I agree, Kevin, that time is short and we should try to schedule as many layout trials as possible. Realistically, however, not everyone's going to be able to make every trial -- especially if we have a lot of them -- so I think the most important thing is to make sure people are posting good maps of their proposals so that others can get a sense of them even if they have to miss a trial. Layouts without maps will probably not receive serious consideration when it comes down to making ... more
