Sorry for that re-re-posting of the News a few minutes ago.
I used to be able to edit News posts, but the web-page no longer has that capability.

First I noticed one misspelled name, then I realized I omitted a different name all together...

Rick Petrie   August 10, 2013 at 2:47pm

William Mitchell   August 9, 2013 at 9:09pm

birdied hole 6. Probably the only time I'll do that at its current placement.

Rick Petrie    August 9, 2013 at 10:24pm

I went to Fairmont on my lunch break today to label the baskets that can be labeled right now (long stort there).

While there I found a couple tiny end wrenches on a baskets. I think they were left behind by someone this morning. ..

Let me know if they are yours so I can get them back to you.

Shout out to all who assisted in tonight's Fairmont Park Disc Golf Course Remodel & Expansion tasks.

It was great to see yet another strong showing of DFOK'ers working to improve one of our courses.
A special thanks to Bill Pryor for going the extra mile(s) by leaving to find, then purchase, a couple replacement nuts & bolts.

I plan to post official DFOK news tomorrow some time... But in the mean time, I hope you can find time to go enjoy the new 18 hole layout.

Good ... more

Alan Fox   August 8, 2013 at 10:45pm

Kevin Clouse    August 8, 2013 at 9:41pm

Hey dfokers does anyone have a 1 or 2 man tent they would be willing to let me borrow for the weekend? I will take really good care of it! Please let me know, thanks!


Rick Petrie    August 8, 2013 at 7:25am

Hey DFOKers,
The moment we've working for... might be tomorrow night.

Redskin Rendezvous? What decade is this?

William Mitchell   August 7, 2013 at 6:20pm

I didn't even notice that. Good catch Jon!

Mark Kewley   August 7, 2013 at 10:42pm

"Are you going Mark?" I don't think so.

Rick Petrie    August 7, 2013 at 12:06am

If you are a Manhattan area disc golfer you might want to clear your schedule for this Thursday, August 8th.

I apologize about that being very vague, but that's as much detail as I can provide at the moment.

Until then, stay tuned for more specific details.

Ha Jon. There's still too many variables out of my control for me to be sure... but at least now people can start making tentative plans just in case things fall into place.

Jon Tveite   August 7, 2013 at 11:17pm

It was more a joke than a complaint....

Rick Petrie   August 7, 2013 at 11:23pm

Ya. Jon I know, that you know... but for those that don't know, now they know. Ya know?

Kevin Clouse    August 6, 2013 at 4:42pm

Jon. I heard he is a long-lost son of Chuck.

Josh Carroll   August 10, 2013 at 1:46pm

For the MPO division, it looks like Adam, Mitchell, myself, Daisuke, and Billy are still in the race! But seems as if McBeth has it all wrapped up with a 4-stroke lead going into the finals - http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/99303

To anyone who has "wanted to help with the work on the course expansion", but has too hectic of a schedule to attend a workday... here's your chance.

Each one of our new pin placements ended up with some "extra dirt" piled around the outside of the hole. Now that we've installed the new ground equipment, some of that dirt needs to go back in around the outside of the black irrigation "box" things (to the level of the green lid).

Our best chance to do ... more


Rick Petrie    August 4, 2013 at 11:52pm

BTW, I reposted today's DFOK to include Scott's name, then deleted the old news post.
Feel free to re-post your comments under the new news thread.


Rick Petrie    August 2, 2013 at 2:56am

My apologies for blowing up everybody's discgolfscene News feed & the DFOK Tab, but this is a HUGE week for us...

Okay, on to my actual content. If you can spare a long level (2'-4') for Saturday's Workday, please bring it along. I've got two, but a couple more would be ideal. (We need them to make sure the center posts are perfectly plumb).

Otherwise I think we're good on tools... but bring tools if you're dying to do so.


Rick Petrie    August 1, 2013 at 10:03pm

Fairmont Expansion Update:
I am pleased to announce that this morning RL County Parks was on-site digging basket locations in preparation for our club work-day this Saturday. Yes, I was on-site to ensure all of them went exactly where we wanted them.

I'll post an official update & maybe even some action photos later tonight.

So...at Tuttle Tuesday I saw my mint green destroyer in the creek on hole 5, and decided to go back after the round to get it. After getting there and wading the creek for about 30 minutes, it was gone. What I did notice though, while driving over, we're 2 college aged kids drying off at their truck. Looked to be a white dodge Dakota or small sized pick up truck like it. Both had short hair and were skinny...I know it's not a lot to go off, but if anyone knows ... more

Hey everyone. Let's help Rob out here (if possible).

Rick Petrie   August 1, 2013 at 1:57pm

BTW, Whew! I drive a Dakota, but "skinny" & "college aged" was a long time ago for me.

Rick Petrie   August 1, 2013 at 2:58pm

Minty! Minty! Good one Clouse!

Mark Kewley    August 1, 2013 at 6:54am

If you are interested in an Innova Disc Carrier bag with Phoenix Quad Shock straps, the Buy Now price is $65. Feel free to make offers. I might agree to the right combination of plastic and $.



Rick Petrie    July 30, 2013 at 3:29pm

Rain rain go away, so Riley County Parks can get our stuff ready for this weekends workday.


Robert Adams    July 30, 2013 at 4:57am


Lost a mint green destroyer in the creek on hole 5 at Tuttle this evening. Went out with my brother in law for a round in the rain and think I put it right in the drink. Tried to wade through and find it but it was waist high...so I couldn't get too far in. A reward awaits it's return if anyone finds it!


Jacob Strait    July 28, 2013 at 10:20pm

Let's get a round in today....anyone planning on playing today?

Ben Nispel   July 28, 2013 at 2:44pm

Me Tim and Mitch are going to get a round on at Tuttle if anyone would like to join! Probably around 3:30

Austin Cranston   July 28, 2013 at 2:45pm

If its not raining I'm down for a round

Ben Nispel   July 28, 2013 at 3:55pm

We'll be there at 4
