Fairmont expansion project... advisory. I went out Monday and unfortunately met one of our neighbors. I had my dog (on a leash) and rick happened to drive by. I went and said hi and we were talking. My dog bolted and the leash was pulled out of my hand. She went straight to my brother who then picked up the leash. Anyway the neighbor saw this and yelled from his front porch to get my dog on a leash and that this was not a dog park. He used some more colorful words to tell me this but that ... more

I had the same thing happen to me...in fact I'm sure he said the same exact words to me. I feel like I have talked to the guy before, he said he was okay with the disc golf just didn't like other dogs "mocking" his dogs and making them bark. Good point though Adam that is the l ... more

I think there is a park rule. manahattan also has city ordinace about dogs on leash... i dont really know if fairmont is considered city limit

Attention Points League Players:
Please be sure to let me know which division you wish to compete in for this new Spring Season. This includes if you simply want to stay in the same division as you were in for the Winter Season. I still need to know your decisions.

I might as well bump up to advanced, thanks Rick!

Josh Carroll   March 21, 2013 at 1:04pm

Something to think about next year. Is there a way to implement performance-based tiers? Could definitely help get the field spread more evenly without forcing people to make a decision to play in a division that they aren't comfortable in. Maybe your first 3 league rounds in a season determine the tier you belong to? After those three, you're locked in that tier until the end of the season.

Rick Petrie   March 28, 2013 at 1:04am

These are interesting ideas and want to hear more about them. We will meet again, like we did last year, to establish format & rules (+changes) for the 2013-2014 season.

Rick Petrie    March 17, 2013 at 9:04pm

Shout out to the following DFOK members for all their hard work at today's Fairmont Park work day.
Kevin Clouse
Alan Fox
Adam Johnson
Mark Kewley
Thad Pultz
Bill Pryor
Daisuke Takahashi

If you missed today's workday, don't worry, there will be many more workdays in the future.


Rick Petrie    March 17, 2013 at 9:17am

Good Morning Everyone!

Reminder: Today is the first WORKDAY of the Fairmont Disc Golf Course expansion project.

Today's focus will be to do some basic clean-up of a specific wooded fairway area so as to get a better look at what we have to work with in there. This is sure to be the coolest "before & after" part of the course expansion project so don't miss out on a chance to help & see it change before our very eyes.

Sunday March 17
10:00am -thru - Mid-Afternoon
(Come & go as you can. Any amount of time will be helpful)

See you there!

Kevin Clouse   March 17, 2013 at 9:50am

Could someone pick me up at 10? I don't have a ride out there until Meghan gets off work at 1

Mark Kewley    March 15, 2013 at 4:57pm

Anyone playing Tutle tonight?

http://www.discgolfscene.com/profile/15417   March 15, 2013 at 5:14pm

A guy in DL will play.

Mark Kewley    March 13, 2013 at 11:01pm

I'm going to check out this week's Fairmont back 9 layout tomorrow around 5:15 if anyone wants to play to some signs.

^ Very interesting.

Rick Petrie   March 14, 2013 at 1:50pm

Travis, Yep it is interesting. Good news is it flows easier than it reads... (It's layed out as a 10 addition, but #2 temp could be easily dropped to make it 9 holes).

Adam Johnson   March 14, 2013 at 1:50pm

If you haven't played the reverse then you should give it a try... my opinion is that it has 2 AWESOME shots, but does complicate flow

Kevin RevKev Clark    March 13, 2013 at 2:23pm

The THIRD ANNUAL LCM "Break The Chains" tournament will be held on Saturday, April 27th at Fairmont Park. Registration is not yet open, but I will post when it is. In the meantime... It will be a two-round tournament, with registration/check-in from 8:45 to 9:45 a.m., and final awards ceremony around 5pm. Cost will be $15 for Students and $20 for everyone else. Players package so far is a disc and a mini. Tourney discs will be Discraft XLs, Z-Nukes, Z-Predators, and Crystal Z Buzzzes. Mark your calendars!

Is this still happening? I can't find the registration anywhere and was looking at possibly making it out to Manhattan that weekend.

Travis Bailey   April 3, 2013 at 9:15pm

I think he said he just hasn't made the page for it last night at league. He said it should be up by the end of the week. It's still on!

Kevin Zane   April 4, 2013 at 11:22pm

Cool, It would be a really good excuse for me to make the trip to Manhattan now that I am back in KC. I'll do my best to make it out.

Kevin RevKev Clark    March 13, 2013 at 2:17pm

Hey Everyone, I don't have permission to create a "new" DFOK league on Disc Golf Scene, so that is why you don't see 2013 Manhattan Area Discgolf Doubles on the DFOK page. The 2013 Doubles League DOES exist though! We started last night with 15 players! The scores are already posted. Currently the 2013 Manhattan Area Discgolf Doubles is listed as an LCM event on Disc Golf Scene, but it is not really and LCM event.

Rick Petrie   March 14, 2013 at 2:03pm

In my opinion need to set down and further discuss this as a group. I think this is one example of why we need to start having regularly scheduled monthly DFOK meetings... otherwise we will become more unorganized & fragmented.

Josh Carroll    March 12, 2013 at 5:23pm

Hey everyone! I'll be bringing some K-State discs to Warner Wednesday. We're trying to get rid of all our inventory, so bring $20 and get yourself a Powercat custom stamped disc (Polaris LS or Astra). Funds will be used to support our squad who will be traveling to St. Louis this weekend for the Gateway Collegiate Classic to try and qualify for the 2013 NCDGC!

shaun chambers   March 13, 2013 at 12:20pm

i will take 2 of them a polaris and astra but will be at work,any chance to meet up another day, or maybe come by taco lucha(im the head cook) and i will buy 2

Josh Carroll   March 13, 2013 at 1:06pm

Done and done! I'll swing by before Warner league and get you hooked up

shaun chambers   March 13, 2013 at 3:25pm

ok i will be there between 4 -11 beer on me if your of age thx

Damen W    March 9, 2013 at 7:53pm

We are asking the Lions Club on Monday to buy 7 more baskets...which will get us to 18!!

Jon Tveite   March 9, 2013 at 9:09pm

Good luck!

Adam Johnson   March 9, 2013 at 10:36pm

good luck!

Mark Kewley    March 9, 2013 at 7:01pm

Since it turned into a nice afternoon, I went to Fairmont. I picked up an unmarked disc. Describe it and I'll get it back to you.

Actually, it looks like it was mine. Magenta Lat 64 River, Opto plastic. 171g? Probably in the parking lot from my awful drive on hole 9?

Mark Kewley   March 10, 2013 at 5:09pm

HaHa, yep. I'll have it with me Tuesday and Wednesday.

Travis Bailey   March 10, 2013 at 5:14pm


Robert Adams    March 8, 2013 at 9:18pm

Anyone want to do a tag round at Tuttle on Sunday if the weather's good enough?

Mark Kewley   March 9, 2013 at 12:56pm

RevKev had posted a while back: Tuesday, March 12th. Looks like this Tuesday!

Robert Adams   March 9, 2013 at 7:30pm

If anyone likes, I'll be at Tuttle for a tag round at 1:00 tomorrow afternoon. If the weather's bad I'll post on here an hour prior. Hope it's a nice day!

Robert Adams   March 10, 2013 at 12:48pm

Not gonna go out today, was hoping the weather would be better. I'm recovering from a bug, and I don't think todays weather is going to help with that, haha. See everyone Tuesday for Doubles!

Kevin Zane    March 7, 2013 at 11:06pm

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.

Mark Kewley    March 5, 2013 at 10:12pm

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 ... more

Alan Fox   March 6, 2013 at 1:03am

no objections here sounds like a good idea to me!

Mark Kewley   May 4, 2013 at 7:56pm

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.

Alan Fox   March 5, 2013 at 8:18am

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?

Mark Kewley   February 26, 2013 at 9:29pm

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

Mark Kewley    February 19, 2013 at 1:59pm

Glow league tonight 6:30. Only 3 more left.

Alan Fox   February 19, 2013 at 6:02pm

Rick Petrie   February 19, 2013 at 6:19pm

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 ... more


Mark Kewley    February 11, 2013 at 10:01pm

Looks like a good forecast for glow league tomorrow night.

A.J Cruz   February 12, 2013 at 12:05am
