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

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

I will be there but could be a lil late

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

I'll be there.

Jacob Strait   February 12, 2013 at 3:24pm

thinking i will be their!

Rick Petrie    February 10, 2013 at 2:40pm

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.


Rick Petrie    February 9, 2013 at 4:22pm

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 ... more

This was on KDGA, if anyone is free this afternoon:

Re: Moon Lake DGC

by Darren B » Mon Feb 04, 2013 7:10 pm

Is there anyone who would like to get an afternoon round in with me at Moon Lake this week? I am in town for classes Tuesday and Wednesday and it looks like i will be free to play anound 4. I tried to follow your layout tonight but it got dark before i figured it out. my # is 620-680-0575 if anybody has time Thanks


Mark Kewley    February 5, 2013 at 10:21pm

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).
