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
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!

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.

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.

This is not exactly "news", so I thought I would post it here.
Riley County has begun removing our brush piles from Fairmont Park.
Rick Petrie April 25, 2013 at 9:39am
Our Fairmont course expansion project made the local news on Tuesday, April 22nd.
Later today, I'll post Official Club News spelling out the details of our project fund raising "Fairway Sponsorship Campaign".
These are exciting time in the Manhattan area for disc golf! Stay tuned.
Alan Fox April 23, 2013 at 3:02pm
Since I wasn't doing anything and was bored I went out and shoveld off most of the tee pads at Tuttle. I'll be at league hopefully we have a big group. Be like an ice bowl reunion haha.
Kevin RevKev Clark April 23, 2013 at 12:35pm
We will need 6 more portable baskets for the tournament. Please let me know if you can help. Thanks!
