That shouldn't be a problem if we get started around 9:30

I'm ok for wherever. Need to be out of Fairmont by 11:00
Hours: 6:00 am - 11:00 pm

I'm 50/50 on playing a glow round this weekend, but I can't wait for the DFOK Glow League we're planning for this winter (no mosquitoes).
My 2 cents worth would be Fairmont because the footing is super safe in the dark, plus no glow defying water hazards.

I still have enough glow sticks to light up 9 holes that I got for the LAO weekend. The only problem is it doesn't get dark til LATE. If there are enough people that want to do this I would be in on a Friday or Saturday night. Chime in if you would show up for a glow round.

A glow round does sound like fun. Which Night works the best?

I was sooooo tempted to play tonight, but getting home to air conditioning & off my feet ended up being a bigger lure. Sorry.
BTW, I still want to do that trade. I'll keep mine with me so next time I see you I'm ready.

The first league round event details are not yet finalized. But I do know there will not be a league/season kick-off tournament at Fairmont Park. Stay tuned for an further details.
There will not be any professional divisions available. The best players will need to participate in the Advanced division.
Hope that helps.

By the way, I forgot to include Adam Johnson as a generous ($20) contributor in yesterday's initial news flash. However, I have now edited the news the club page of discgolfscene to reflect his contribution. Please forgive me Adam.
Also, I have removed the "PDGA" part of the points division descriptions because we are not a PDGA sanctioned league. Nor will this league effect your PDGA rating.

I should point out that (at this point in time), none of the DFOK leagues, tournaments, etc. are PDGA sanctioned events.

Once upon a time, on a course named Riley Conference Center, some guys ran over a basket (with their tractor) while baling hay.
Have you guys taken an inventory of the baskets since they cut the hay? . ? . ? By the way, you won't be in the clear until they have baled & hauled off all the bales of hay.

They cut the grass for Daughtry...but not disc golf. What's this world coming to...
Ken Braeger June 2, 2012 at 8:21pm
The grass at Riley Conference Center was cut today (prepped for bailing). I haven't been on the course to see if it's cut completely around yet, but I'm going to try and get tomorrow to check it out. I expect with the upcoming Daughtry concert, the grounds will get a manicure. Since the grass was done with a combine (or such), I expect the tee boxes are no longer unmarked, but I'm excited none the less to get a few more rounds in before the baskets are moved to Moon Lake..

My destroyer champion blizzard is very stable and i rarely turn it over. Ive never really used in windy conditions but that's mostly because I try to play safe in heavy wind. The blizz champion wears much fasterfor me. If u are used to throwing 170 g discs then I would suggest not going below 150 g. Good luck Jon

If you aren't satisfied with your distance already, then I would discourage grabbing a blizzard (if that is the only reason you want to try one).. They are fun to throw, and will likely go farther but I would say that anyone could benefit much more from a little field work with some slower, less forgiving discs. Learning to generate better weight transfer, clean release, good timing and mechanics will push your limits much further. With the right practice, you'll find yourself throwing ... more

With the right practice, you'll find yourself throwing 325+' controlled turnovers with your buzzzes (or other mid-range of choice) and pushing 375+ with fairways while everyone else is still trying to figure out how to get their blizz wraith/katana/(whatever) to flip with any predictability.
