Break the Chains registration is now open at: KSULCM.ORG. The first 60 players to register and pay will receive a custom stamped tournament disc. Open players may choose to pay for the tourney only or to pay for the tourney and a player's pack for an extra fee.



Sign up soon! Let's see if we can break our record registration from the 2014 Ice Bowl!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to remind you that the 4th Annual "Break The Chains" Disc Golf Tournament is coming up on Saturday, April 12th. The registration page is glitching out right now, but it will be up and running soon. I will re-post when online registration is ready. In the meantime, you can check out the flyer at KSULCM.ORG. We have decided for the first time at an LCM tournament to offer cash prizes for the Open division, so this should be an added incentive for you to try playing OPEN.

Good find Rick. I know a bunch of DFOKers donated a lot of time and $ on this. It's nice to get some love on the radio.

Rick Petrie   March 12 at 11:49pm

Thanks. Plus, good publicity like this should help our chances of expanding Warner Park & other cool projects in the future. (at least in theory)

TUESDAY: Highest Wind Speed = 31mph, Highest Wind Gust = 42mph

that seems bout accurate if not higher lol

Rick Petrie   March 12 at 4:15pm

I don't know for sure where this weather station is located... I agree that the winds at Tuttle could have been even stronger than in the NOAA reports.

Lost Disc: Red star destroyer a couple feet into the water right next to the basket on hole #13. I'm going out tomorrow or Thursday, but posting just in case someone grabs it because I'm not sure if my name is on it.

Lost Disc: White Destroyer on Fairway #17 at Tuttle, along the bank of the creek...

Fairly short because it got slammed down by the wind.

It was pretty dark out by then so I'm not sure if it went in the water or not.

Who are you again?

Rick Petrie    March 9 at 10:32am

Anybody interested in my "used" disc golf cart/stroller? I can arrange a test drive if needed.

If it doesn't sell locally, I plan to take it to the DU Open on March 29th... where I'll make sure to sell it.



Thanks!

By the way, the Bag Tag part just keep rolling with the same tags... there's no change in that, other than it will take place at Warner along with the Points League change in venue.

Rick Petrie    March 9 at 12:34am

DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS AND "spring forward" tonight... you wouldn't want to miss the start of the Sunday League event by one hour!

Hey everyone! If you haven't already heard, the K-State disc golf team earned a bid for the 2014 National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships held in April. In order to finance the tournament expenses, the club has arranged to order fundraiser t-shirts. You may reserve a t-shirt now by making a contribution of $15. T-shirts will only be guaranteed to those that reserve a shirt prior to placing the order. Thanks!

Here is the sample design: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0dgJ-mhNBbyODlpYnRLMmc2ZFk/edit?usp=sharing

Here is your chance to have some input on our 2014 "Break the Chains" tournament discs. I will be placing the order tomorrow... Friday, March 7th. We are ordering Innova discs this year, but can also order Discmania discs. We will only be able to order 3 or 4 models because of quantity requirements. So, let me know what Innova or Discmania discs you would like to see. Let me know in the next 24 hours....

sorry Rick I had a couple things come up I'm not gonna be able to make it to the meeting tonightlike I thought I was really wanting to come

Rick Petrie   March 6 at 11:43pm

No problem... we still had a good group tonight. Hopefully you can make it to the next one (which was set tonight for Thur. March 27th).

Rick Petrie   March 6 at 11:45pm

By the way, I'll post notes from tonight's meeting soon. Lots of good stuff was discussed, plus some good decisions made too.

Rick Petrie    March 2 at 10:33am

Today's Winter Weather Warning has been downgraded to an Advisory.

However, I do not plan to "un-cancel" today's league events because of the dangerously cold temperatures. The predicted high temp. for today is 7 degrees... and the National Weather Service is saying "Wind chills will range from Negative 10 to Negative 20 degrees".



If you have strong points why today's league should be "un-canceled", please post them here ASAP.



Thank You.

Ahhh Travis, weather is relative... we would have wrote our league rules accordingly if it took place in Ames.

Travis Bailey   March 3 at 2:55pm

Haha, I had fun. Wasn't too bad the second day.

Rick Petrie   March 3 at 7:42pm

Ya. Looks like you southern boys crush em.
