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.

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.

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!
Kevin RevKev Clark April 23, 2013 at 12:33pm
Please get yourselves registered for "Break the Chains" it is THIS SATURDAY! Pre-registering makes my job LOTS EASIER, plus it WAY SPEEDS UP the time between the last round and the prizes being awarded!

We are getting very close to an important milestone in the Fairmont Disc Golf Course Expansion project.

A tip of the hat to the following people who made time in their schedules to put in some hard work at yesterday's Fairmont Park Work Day.
Hours of work now to create something countless people will enjoy for decades... time well spent.
(ya, I was there too)

Buy two get one free on all discs at hastings, in case anyone is needing some new plastic!
Damen W April 14, 2013 at 7:35pm
we now have 18 holes...tried to get a full round in today but got interrupted. No tee signs yet on the new holes so if anyone comes down, get a hold of dakota or I and we will be glad to show you around. There are now alternates on 4, 6, soon to be 7, 8, 10, and 13. Technically there are 17 baskets....we are currently using one twice.
