FAIRMONT WORKDAY, COURSE DESIGN MEETING, 3 DISC CHALLENGE EVENT.

Please consider marking your calendars for the upcoming Official DFOK events!

FAIRMONT WORK DAY - MARCH 17TH (THIS SUNDAY) - 10:00AM THRU MID-AFTERNOON:
This will be the first official workday for the Fairmont Park Course Expansion Project. The focus will be to clean out the dead, small & otherwise unwanted material in the wooded fairway (known as #4 or #5). If you want to help, all you need to bring are work gloves & plenty of water. If available, but not required, feel free to bring any lawn maintenance hand tools (non-powered) that you may have. It is a come & go as you can event. Any amount of time will be helpful.

COURSE DESIGN MEETING - MARCH 25TH 5:30PM - LUTHERAN CAMPUS MINISTRY BLDG. 1745 ANDERSON AVE:
This will be the meeting in which we finalize the Fairmont Course Expansion layout, and any changes to the current course. All of the recently displayed fairways will be analyzed & considered, then a hybrid layout will be created containing the best elements of the above mentioned fairways. After our final layout is agreed upon, it will be submitted to the Riley County Parks Dept. for their review & comments/adjustment(s).

MILLENNIUM GOLF DISCS - 3 DISC CHALLENGE TOURNAMENT - FAIRMONT PARK FUNDRAISER - SATURDAY MAY 4TH:
Discs Unlimited & Disc Fanatics of Kansas will be co-hosting a Millennium Discs “3 Disc Challenge” Tournament as a fund raiser for our Fairmont Park course expansion project. The details of this event are still being formulated, but the basics are as follows. For an entry fee of $25, each player will receive 3 new Millennium discs of their choice (mold & weight) in which they must use during this fund raising tournament. Two rounds of 18 holes will be played at Fairmont Park. One round will be a singles round, the other round will be a triples round (3 person teams), while incorporating some unique rules to add to the fun. Stay tuned for additional tournament details.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post them here or look me up.

Sincerely, Rick

Wow! Good job bird dogging all this Rick. I'm excited to start cleaning up the wooded area to really see what is there.

Yep. I am very excited to get in that area to remove the little & dead stuff so we can see what we've got to work with in design. Thus far Riley County has been great to work with. Giving us permission to do this now is HUGE because the spring growth is right around the corner.
