So... since there is no class Monday. I was thinking about taking a trip to Emporia on Monday... Is anyone interested?
Mitchell Brenn August 27 at 2:15pm
I'm going to fairmont around 2:45/3:00 to get some practice putting in if anyone would like to join.
Travis Bailey August 27 at 12:40pm
What is the texting program that you guys use? I get all of them indivdually. Should we all try and get GroupMe?
Would anyone like to play tonight other than Tuttle?

Glad to hear back from you Ian. We are still working on specifics, but I will be sending out an email later this week after the OSAS Club & Activities fair on Thursday.
Mitchell Brenn, our team captain, has told me that we should plan to meet at Fairmont on Saturday, August 31 for our first practice (due to the Friday night football home-opener). Future practices throughout the fall will likely be scheduled for Friday evenings. Stay tuned.

I expressed interest in joining the club team towards the end of last school year. Do you guys stay active during the entire school year. If so, how do I go about joining you guys because I'm really interested.

Is anyone up for a round at Tuttle around 3:30/4 today? I'd like to play before I head to camp for two weeks.
I can't drive my car because my driver's window fell into the door, so I'd need a ride. Just send a text if you're wanting to play!

Hello K-State Disc Golf Club,
Please allow me to pitch something to you regarding one of your club’s home courses, located at Fairmont Park.
As you may or may not know, the Manhattan based disc golf club Disc Fanatics of Kansas (DFOK) is working with Riley County Parks to remodel & expand the Fairmont Disc Golf Course. In order to stay up to date with the project please Favorite and/or follow the club’s Talk tab on discgolfscene.com ( http://www.discgolfscene.com/clubs/Disc_Fanatics_of_Kansas ). You can also Like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter, or go to www.dfok.us
As part of this project, DFOK is responsible for raising $4500 to contribute to the project. Riley County Parks will also be paying for project improvements, in addition to our $4500 budget. I order to raise our DFOK club share, we are asking organizations & individuals if they would like to be a "Fairway Sponsor". By sponsoring a “full fairway” for $500, or a “half fairway” for $250, their name will be displayed on permanent course signage. Sponsorship opportunities are limited, 9 "fulls" or 18 "halfs" or a combination of both. These Fairway Sponsorships" are available on a first-come first-served basis.
Here’s where the K-STATE DISC GOLF CLUB comes in. You guys & gals are members of an ideal organization to sponsor a fairway. If your club sponsored a fairway, it could be something you would be proud of for decades to come. It would go a long way in establishing a legacy for others to follow. It could be a recruiting tool that would motivate new students to learn more about your club. It could be something your club can put on your organizational resume as giving back to the Community. The list of positives goes on & on.
All it would take for your club to sponsor a half fairway is for 20 members to pitch in $12.50, or 10 members to pitch in $25, or any combination equaling $250. Since it’s a first come, first served process, there’s no specific deadline on DFOK for finding the required sponsors. Meanwhile (in a few weeks) many of you will be out of school working your summer jobs and may have $12.50 or $25 (or more) discretionary dollars in your pockets. So by that time your club sponsoring a fairway could be very do-able.
One way to do it would be to designate one person to mail your K-State Club member donations to until you get to the desired $ level of your choice (ie $250 or $500). After you get to your desired $ level, then have that person deliver those funds to me. Then BANG, your club has permanent recognition in Fairmont Park! (Note: Final sponsorship checks are to made out to Riley County Parks).
Opportunities to get your name permanently displayed on courses do not come up very often. Therefore, please seriously consider your options.
p.s. You can start raising money amongst yourselves anytime, then refund it back to your members if you happen fall short of raising it in time to get the last spot.

Hey I just found out about you guys through Kstate rec service. I'm a going to be a 3rd year at Kstate next year and I love disc golf. Do you guys stay active over the summer with any organized outings?

Everyone should sign up for the Break The Chains tournament this Saturday...There are only 5 people signed up in Advanced and only 19 people signed up in general. It's $15 and you get a disc! Go give plasma tomorrow if you are short on cash. I'm sure one of us will go with you if you don't want to go by yourself.

Is anyone interested in going to Emporia on Sunday to watch the pros at the GBO? I'd really like to go but not on my own. Haha. Let me know!

Anyone have a chair I can borrow for the tournament on Saturday? Not sure when I'll be able to pick it up though.
