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.

nick samuelson   March 6, 2014 at 6:26pm

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, 2014 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, 2014 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, 2014 at 8:33pm

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, 2014 at 2:55pm

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

Rick Petrie   March 3, 2014 at 7:42pm

Ya. Looks like you southern boys crush em.

Rick Petrie    March 1, 2014 at 7:06pm

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


Rick Petrie    March 1, 2014 at 7:02pm

Winter Storm Warning for Sunday = No League SUNDAY (as per official league rules). See league rules or DFOK News for more information.

Rick Petrie   March 1, 2014 at 11:29pm

Well done Alan & Mark. I think that makes you guys the most fanatical of the Fanatics!

Alan Fox   March 3, 2014 at 5:39pm

We are pretty crazy aren't we Mark!

Rick Petrie    March 1, 2014 at 12:59am

It's the end of the month... Time to move some baskets... come help at Fairmont at 4:00.
Before they get frozen in place (again) by the upcoming blizzard. Thanks!

Josh Carroll   February 28, 2014 at 3:17pm

I'll be out there playing a round. If you can find me, I'll help out.

Rick Petrie   February 28, 2014 at 4:14pm

Awesome! we don't need to move them all... some were just moved for the ice bowl.

Rick Petrie   March 1, 2014 at 9:24am

Shout out to Ian Waters, Mitchell Brenn & Josh Carroll for helping move Fairmont baskets yesterday! (sorry 6 long is still frozen solid!)

Kevin Zane    February 26, 2014 at 10:40pm

Has anyone heard anything about a 2014 Little Apple Open?

show all 4 comments
Rick Petrie   February 26, 2014 at 1:26pm

Ya, kind of. Kindy (w DD) contacted me with some questions... I really pushed for a 2 day tourney... that may not happen.

Rick Petrie   February 26, 2014 at 1:26pm

Sounds like they have a few dates in mind... could even be in mid-summer... It boils down to when DD and Smitty (the TD) can fit it into their schedule.

Rick Petrie   February 26, 2014 at 1:28pm

In other words, it sounds like their company still plans to host a 2014 Little Apple Open, but the date is still undecided.

Mitchell Frederickson    February 25, 2014 at 9:02pm

Can someone please post the info for the upcoming tournament to raise money for new baskets. I think there was two or thee events? Not really sure?

(2). Our club has set a standard practice of scheduling meetings (in a fomal meeting enviroment) in order to spend time vetting any proposed club endevor. For example starting new leagues, building/remodelng courses, etc. Reason being, it provides everyone an oppurtunity to collaborate on big & ... more

Mitchell Frederickson   February 25, 2014 at 3:19pm

OK, got ya. I didn't realize there were 3 clubs. Thanks Rick.

Jon Tveite   February 25, 2014 at 8:23pm

No offense taken, Mitchell. Thanks for being interested.

Rick Petrie    February 23, 2014 at 4:35am

Cool to see so many of you at Fairmont today.
Shout out to everyone who helped make it happen!
That course is something we can all be really proud of.


Rick Petrie    February 22, 2014 at 7:28pm

Wether you are playing, or watching, I look forward to seeing all of you at Fairmont Park.


Rick Petrie    February 21, 2014 at 7:39am

For anyone who wants to help set-up on Saturday Morning (Feb 22nd), here's the basics.
Arrive around 9:15am to help set-up some folding tables, a couple portable tents, and a few other miscellaneous items. We will need to be set-up & ready for the non-playing visitors by 10:30am. (Rev. Kev. may also need some help, however he'll highly trained LCM students by his side).

Considering we are expecting a lot of non-players at this event, the usual practice area will only be used to ... more

Rick Petrie   February 20, 2014 at 10:06pm

In other words, we don't someone's first experience with disc golf to be getting smacked in the head by a putt. :-)

Rick Petrie    February 20, 2014 at 11:57pm

If you head to Fairmont Park during the work day on Friday please do not park in disc golf parking lot, especially if you see large equipment working on the parking lot. Thanks.

Rick Petrie   February 20, 2014 at 6:46pm

.... there's lots of other places to park and start your round.

Rick Petrie    February 20, 2014 at 6:03am

Disc golf is blowing up my phone, computer & schedule... and I like it!
But it's almost game time, so I'll be off the grid for a while tonight... and you'll probably like that. (Ha!)

Rick Petrie   February 19, 2014 at 8:04pm

K-State game time, that is.

Mark Kewley   February 19, 2014 at 8:29pm

Are you also going to tweet that you are off the grid :)

Rick Petrie   February 20, 2014 at 1:50pm


Rick Petrie    February 18, 2014 at 10:37pm

Just received word from the County they are installing some hardware right now. Exciting stuff!


nick samuelson    February 18, 2014 at 8:38am

Rick Petrie   February 17, 2014 at 10:56pm

Good job to you too! I think you're in the best photos... playing through distractions.

Alan Fox   February 18, 2014 at 6:29am
