Reminder: The Manhattan Mercury is scheduled to be at our usual disc golf league today. They will be interviewing players about the upcoming Ice Bowl & Ribbon Cutting event, plus any background info about disc golf. Let's be sure to put our best foot forward today... It will go a long way in future projects too.

Rick Petrie   February 16, 2014 at 10:49am

BTW, They are sending photographer along... so you'll want to have your best disc golf look going too. ;-)

Rick Petrie   February 16, 2014 at 5:30pm

Great turnout today, especially considering the muddy & slushy elements. Can't wait to see what the newspaper comes up with... maybe even something before the Ribbon Cutting & Ice Bowl.

Mitchell Brenn    February 16, 2014 at 8:14am

Lost Disc Alert! Circle stamp eagle on hole 14. Please let me know if you find it.

Adam Johnson   February 15, 2014 at 10:35pm

Mitchell Brenn   February 16, 2014 at 2:51am

Rick Petrie    February 16, 2014 at 6:36am

Ooops. That should have said "never played #13 LONG". Like mega long!

Mitchell Frederickson    February 15, 2014 at 9:53am

Would anyone like to carpool to Wichita on Sunday for a PDGA C tier tournament?

Ben Nispel   February 15, 2014 at 9:09am

Drag AJ and Mitch up here with you! And if you end up coming could you bring my shirt from Josh?

Josh Carroll   February 15, 2014 at 11:38am

I'm actually heading down to Hutchinson this weekend but I won't be able to make it down to Wichita. If I hear of anybody I know making the drive from the Hutch crew, I'll pass the jerseys on to them to give to you.

Ben Nispel   February 15, 2014 at 1:21pm

Sweet, I still have a disc for a hutch guy too. I think his name is Matt newton so I'd like to send that up to him as well!

Mitchell Brenn    February 14, 2014 at 5:06am

So Millennium now sponsors USDGC champion Steve Brinster! Just thought I would share some cool news about Millennium/Discs Unlimited since they help us here in Manhattan a lot.

Hey I'm a sponsor too :(

Rick Petrie   February 13, 2014 at 11:42pm

Well done to you too Alan!

Alan Fox   February 14, 2014 at 6:46am

lol thanks Rick

Rick Petrie    February 13, 2014 at 11:40pm

I'm seeing no large out cry to "cancel" Sunday's league event... So it's Game On! See you tomorrow.

Mitchell Frederickson   February 8, 2014 at 8:21pm

What time is it again?

Rick Petrie   February 8, 2014 at 10:37pm

1:15 check-in. 1:30 start time.

Rick Petrie    February 8, 2014 at 3:42am

Considering the widely varied snow depths (drifts) on the course, plus none of the Fairmont parking lots have been cleared, I PROPOSE we CANCEL this Sunday's regular league contest. I'm all for playing in some snow, but competing in these exact conditions could be very regrettable.

Nothing to do on the weekend without league? You could stop by Fairmont and dig out a couple tee pads... that way they don't get totally snow packed before the Ice Bowl & Ribbon Cutting event.

Are you proposing a change to the official rules then?

Mark Kewley   February 8, 2014 at 11:30am

"- League events may be canceled due to dangerous weather conditions. Cancellations will be based on Severe Weather Warnings issued by the National Weather Service. When in doubt, check the leagueu2019s main page as all pending cancelations will be posted there. "

Rick Petrie   February 8, 2014 at 12:06pm

I wasn't wanting to make any big "rule change". I was just curious if we should cancel due to this unusually large total. I suppose we should host league at the usual time & place, then let those in attendance determine how much of the course to play. That has worked in the past...

Rick Petrie    February 3, 2014 at 4:13am

Who y'all got?

Rick Petrie   February 2, 2014 at 6:13pm

I'm thinking Broncos because so many people are "saying" the Seattle defense is so good. That seems too simple.

Adam Johnson   February 2, 2014 at 6:43pm

dont bet against peyton

Rick Petrie   February 2, 2014 at 9:06pm

Looks like I better stick to college football. Well at least the Chili Peppers were good.

Rick Petrie    February 1, 2014 at 10:36pm

Hello all league guys and gals! The Sunday league events will take place at the usual time & place, despite the snow & it being Super Bowl Sunday. Fresh snow is fun to play in, plus the Super Bowl kick-off isn't until 5:30pm...
Hope to see you there.


Rick Petrie    January 31, 2014 at 11:08pm

Anybody interested in helping rotate Warner baskets this afternoon between 4 & 5?
I know y'all want to play new placements...

Shout out to Adam Johnson & Bill Pryor for volunteering to help move baskets... especially on such short notice.

Rick Petrie   January 31, 2014 at 9:22pm

No problem Adam. I got hung up at work a couple minutes...

Adam Johnson   January 31, 2014 at 9:26pm

Thanks for moving baskets rick

Rick Petrie    January 28, 2014 at 6:07am

I just got registered for the LCM / DFOK event on Saturday Feb 22!


Mitchell Frederickson    January 21, 2014 at 4:54am

I was checking out the oz disc golf tour and noticed that the Manhattan ice bowl is not listed. Our ice bowl is a food drive, correct? Should someone promote this on www.kansasdiscgolf.com

Rick Petrie   January 20, 2014 at 7:28pm

Ours was on the KDGA schedule last year. I think Kewley is going to contact Smitty or Maceman or someone with the KDGA gang to get it added... that way we can earn KDGA points, plus we might attract some out of town KDGA players...

Mitchell Frederickson   January 20, 2014 at 10:13pm

Sounds good!

Kevin RevKev Clark   January 21, 2014 at 12:36pm

I have tried more than once in the past to make contact with someone at the KDGA through their website. No one has ever responded or posted the information. Somehow Mark Kewley made contact with them last year and got the info posted. I don't know how he did it.

Rick Petrie    January 13, 2014 at 9:11am

Thanks to all who came out to league today.
It might have been a muddy snowy mess, but still a good time (at least I thought so).


Ben Nispel    January 9, 2014 at 8:07pm

Kanin and I are in route to manhattan. Who's up to throw a round today? We'll be playing all 3 courses!

Mitchell Frederickson   January 9, 2014 at 11:34am

let me know when you guys are shooting tuttle creek or warner. You can text me if you want. (260) 450-1761. Thanks!

Rick Petrie    January 5, 2014 at 7:58am

Shout out to Kewley for being able to host out league events when I cannot (I've got one last Family X-Mas event tomorrow).
That's the teamwork & dedication we need to have league every single week this season.

Ben Nispel    January 5, 2014 at 5:01am

Kanin and I should be in town next Thursday the 9th if anyone would like to join us for a few rounds!


Josh Carroll    January 1, 2014 at 3:41am

Is Glow League happening tonight? :P

Alan Fox   December 31, 2013 at 6:04pm

no not Tonight

Dustin Harrison    December 30, 2013 at 12:25am

Tag 1 is up for grabs today in bag tag


Austin Cranston    December 27, 2013 at 5:57am

Went out and played a snowy round at Fairmont today and forgot to pick up my white KC pro aviar on hole #2. It should be on the left side somewhere. It has my name and number on it and will probably turn up once the snows gone.

Alan Fox   December 28, 2013 at 2:22pm

Actually I lost my Blue Rainbow Stamp Flx Buzzz in the snow on hole 9 yesterday
