We are getting very close to an important milestone in the Fairmont Disc Golf Course Expansion project.
We should be able to make the announcement it in the next few days. Please stay tuned.

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.
Jon Tveite
Daisuke Takahashi
Mark Kewley
Hours of work now to create something countless people will enjoy for decades... time well spent.

(ya, I was there too)

Is break the chains 2013 going to listed on here?

Rick Petrie   April 18, 2013 at 1:41pm

No. Break the Chains is NOT a Disc Fanatics of Kansas event. It is a production of the Lutheran Campus Ministry. You will need to contact Kevin Clark, or watch for it on their page. ( http://www.discgolfscene.com/clubs/Lutheran_Campus_Ministry_at_Kansas_State_University )

Buy two get one free on all discs at hastings, in case anyone is needing some new plastic!

Rick Petrie   April 17, 2013 at 6:25pm

Doh! Now I know where everyone is instead of League! (But seriously, thanks for the sale alert)

Travis Bailey   April 17, 2013 at 10:01pm

Just went and checked it out, they are basically cleaned out of Innova. Not seeing anything that suits my fancy in Discraft, but I don't throw very much of it... Happy hunting!

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.

Can we get some people to sit with their backs to us next to fairway 3 to make Jon nervous?

Damen W   April 17, 2013 at 11:47am

lol...yes..we should do that. I nominate dakota and austin.

Jon Tveite   April 17, 2013 at 5:31pm

I'm not sure Dakota could sit still long enough for that duty.

Alan Fox    April 14, 2013 at 5:45am

I posted pictures of all the holes at Westmoreland's course today was a good time and if anyone was interested now you can see before you go


Josh Parker    April 13, 2013 at 1:39pm

Travis Bailey   April 14, 2013 at 2:14am

On Sunday? I'd love to meet you there but I am going to watch the GBO in Emporia.

Rick Petrie    April 10, 2013 at 11:09pm

Good luck to all DFOK members who are playing in this weekends Glass Blown Open.
That's a big time tournament that takes a big time performance to compete.

For those of you who are not playing, it's totally worth it to go watch for a while.
Go see the biggest pro's in the sport... I highly recommend watching them play the Country Club course.


Mark Kewley    April 10, 2013 at 9:20pm

Looks like the GBO player's pack is nice: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83557&page=5

I ordered a DFOK shirt like this today: http://www.discgolfscene.com/profile/10252/pictures/album_7907/145683#145683
at GTM. They have the logo in the system if you want one. The shirt has to be Green, Black, or White only (DFOK colors).

AND, if DFOK is okay with it you can get sport grip in just white or black or both for cheaper than what I'm assuming is embroidery Mark?

Josh Parker   April 10, 2013 at 11:21am

im down for a shirt. i vote black or green shirts

Mark Kewley   April 10, 2013 at 7:07pm

Wow! I got a call before noon that my shirt was ready! At one time it was decided that only Black, Green, and White were ok. Someone is wanting to include another color. Probably need some sort of group decision.

Josh Carroll    April 9, 2013 at 8:43pm

I'll be bringing a box full of plastic tomorrow for Warner Wednesday ::: Innova, Discraft, and Millennium ::: Also have some leftover Gateway Karmas from the Spring Invitational ::: Price Range $10-17 (see my photo albums for a list of inventory)


Kevin RevKev Clark    April 9, 2013 at 3:29pm

league is still on right

Kevin Zane   April 10, 2013 at 1:51pm

Is the $15 price just for KSU students?

Kevin Zane   April 16, 2013 at 4:34pm

Does Open play for cash? Or no prize at all?

Travis Bailey    April 7, 2013 at 10:02pm

Put this together earlier.



Rick Petrie    April 7, 2013 at 7:20pm

With our Fairmont Fundraiser 3 Disc Challenge coming up, I thought I should start figuring out what driver(s) I want to order.
To do so I'm planning on practicing with what I already have, plus trading or borrowing a few discs with fellow DFOK members...

If you are looking for an overstable mid range I've got a sentinel you can borrow.

Alan Fox   April 8, 2013 at 10:54am

172 Rick

Rick Petrie   April 9, 2013 at 8:31pm

Thanks Alan. Both of mine are 175. Travis, I appreciate the offer but I think the Sentinel's are going to be too overstable for me.

Rick Petrie    April 7, 2013 at 1:18pm

For those of you who care to post their scores (or even just reviews of the layout) from yesterday's DU Open tourney, I added a 20 hole layout option to the course in Herrington.


Josh Carroll   April 7, 2013 at 2:40pm

I think you need to take out the spaces between the hole numbers on your custom layout. Might be causing the funky look when it shows up in the News feed.

Rick Petrie   April 7, 2013 at 5:41pm

Good call Josh. I made that change & it worked... except it does not apply to scores already entered (so I removed & reposted my scores)

Rick Petrie    April 6, 2013 at 11:30pm

It was awesome to see so many DFOK members at the DU Open today!

How cool was it to hear the Tournament Director, Dennis Vahsholtz, say "Disc Golf is alive & well in Manhattan."

Mark Kewley   April 7, 2013 at 2:31pm

Thanks Dakota, That tournament is always a blast. I'm glad I managed to keep it together.

Travis Bailey    April 6, 2013 at 2:04am
