It is not all hype,
In the right conditions they work well. You have to remember what you are throwing and not try to kill it. I have a couple that I keep in the bag. I'll let you throw them.

Personal/Equipment question for DFOK folks: a lot of you seem to have these newish, very lightweight Blizzard discs -- what do you think of them? I haven't thrown one yet, but I'm finally getting curious. I know they were kind of a novelty for a while, but now that you've played with them, do you think they are a good addition to your bag? Any thoughts on which one? I would probably want to go with something pretty stable, like a Destroyer or Wraith. I have a tendency to flip lighter discs. I know you have to throw them differently, but I haven't gotten the hang of it yet.

Hole #1 & hole #2 were pretty much designed together...
Hole #1 was kind of designed from the basket up. We knew where tee pad #2 needed to be, then we saw a good place for basket #1 & looked & looked & looked for a good tunnel to go up the hill.
Initially tee pad #1 was supposed to be much closer to the opening in the trees. However we kept pushing it back to get out of the path of the Parks & Rec. pick-ups & lawn mowing equipment.

I don't see how you look at those tangles of trees and see a golf course. Many thanks to our DFOK visionaries!

Happy Memorial Day to all. If you're playing today, grab a few that are Red White & Blue and let them fly!

Thanks Jon. I'm glad to see there are so many DFOK travel options this weekend. Please let me know how that Abilene course is holding up... I too am considering playing in that tourney next month.
Speaking of travel options, Ya gotta read at least part of the article below. WOW! I think he should be made an honorary DFOKer.

I definitely still want to go. It looks like the rain will hold off too, so it should be a good time.
Jon Tveite May 26, 2012 at 9:39pm
I'm glad you guys got something planned that works for Rick. I would go but I have other plans on Sunday.
I would still like to head west to Thomas Park on Monday, and hitting Abilene on the way there or back. Mark, you expressed an interest, as did Austin. Are you guys still up for it? Anyone else want to make the trip?
Rick Petrie May 26, 2012 at 9:32am
Sounds like you and Kirk have a well thought out plan/schedule. I'm looking forward to it.

That Topeka trip will work good for me! I love playing the Big Shunga temp course... Gotta do that once a year.
I have two proposals/opinions, but veto them if needed.
1. I prefer Crestview over Lake Shawnee.
2. We should play the more shaded course of our two in the afternoon.
( It would be super cool if we had time for Big Shunga, then Centennial (Lawrence). Maybe next time though)

Josh, Yes we're there... However, you haven't missed much. Until last week it was basically just there to point players to discgolfscene. Afterall, discgolfscene is far better suited for our DG communications & discussions. Now that we as a group have got out into the community to do a few nice things, I figure it's time to show non-players what we're about. Thus I've posted a few photos from those activities. IMO, Facebook should still only be used by DFOK to show non-players that we' ... more

IMO, Facebook should still only be used by DFOK to show non-players that we're responsible members of the community and that DG is a good use of our community parks... (in other words use Facebook to help us in the political game around town) But when it comes to discussing the game, our leagues, scores, course reviews, etc. to continue to use discgolfscene.

DFOK has a Facebook page?! :O Why haven't I "Liked" it yet?
Rick Petrie May 25, 2012 at 12:05am
Earlier tonight, I posted some photos on the DFOK facebook page. The photos are from the Get Around 2 It, plus the Tuttle Creek Workday earlier this month (May).
If you see you any photos yourself that you don't want on Facebook, just let me know so I can remove/adjust the photo.

Next week is kind of busy for me at work but I’m going to try to be there for one of the afternoons. I agree with Rick, the more we can do for the community the better. It makes it much easier when it comes to course improvements, expansions, and new courses.
Those 4H kids should have come to my putting clinic Tuesday night :)

Me and a cpl others are playing Jones east west and peter pan everyone is welcome , and dynamic is open Monday
Jon Tveite May 24, 2012 at 1:49am
Austin, that's kind of what I was thinking, too -- check out Abilene to see if it's worth playing the tourney there, which is coming up soon. But mostly I'd like to try Thomas Park.
Still, destination is negotiable. I was thinking maybe Eisenhower, or maybe Peter Pan and Eisenhower?
Either Sunday or Monday would be all right for me, I think.
