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.

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.

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!

I believe I'm behind on congratulating three people for recent Aces.. so here goes. Nice work Austin, Alan & Adam... apparently the "A Team", in more ways than one.

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....

More tee sign post are going in at Fairmont as I type!
They're looking pretty awesome so far... if I do say so myself.

Also of note, this week is the last Sunday DFOK league event for the "Winter Points Season"!
For those of you who didn't remember, we play the Bag Tag & Points leagues on Wednesday nights for the spring & summer months.

Meeting Reminder: Tonight at the Manhattan Public Library.
Can't make it by the start time? No problem. Better late than not at all.

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.

Go play disc golf today, while it's still safe out there!
