Thanks again to all volunteers and participants involved in yesterday's Swap Meet & Ace Race event. Your hard work & participation made this event fun for all.
There was a very solid turnout of players / club members participating in the Swap Meet. Countless trades & sales were made, getting unwanted discs in the hands of people who want them. Considering the popularity of the Swap Meet, might we need two per year? We'll see.
Of course there was the actual Ace Race course. The list of participants contained 48 people, including players from Kansas City, Overland Park, Lenexa, McPherson, Fort Riley, Wamego, and of course Manhattan. Thanks to the flexible rules of the Discraft Ace Race format, the temp. course came together nicely including some very fun and "Aceable" holes. Thank You to ALL players who brought their basket(s). It was much appreciated! Because these gracious players, the course included one ground level basket, one hanging basket, one 8' tall basket, and a big finish 18th hole with a bank of 7 baskets in front of a baseball backstop! Also because of the flexible format, participants were encouraged to request who they wanted to play with. Thanks to the friendly nature of all participants in attendance, 8 groups of 6 people were easily assembled to take on the course.
Want to show your thanks? One way to show your appreciation is to send your event pics to [email redacted] so they can be posted on our DFOK club Disc Golf Scene and Facebook page.
