Found on Current #2 Fairmont:
Yellow Innova DX Cheetah stuck in a tree (left it). Might have to call the FD ladder truck to get that cat down.
Innova F2 (Factory 2nd) blizzard disc. If you can name the disc + stamp color, I'll get it to you asap.

Alan Fox   July 8, 2013 at 9:07am

so what should i do with his disc mark?

Mark Kewley   July 8, 2013 at 11:42am

He has been here the last 2 years. I guess you can play with it until he comes back to Kansas?

One week from today I'll be headed to the Sunflower State Games disc golf tournament. Saturday is the doubles format, played just like our Tuttle Tuesday best disc format, however you bring your teammate. Sunday is a standard singles tournament. You can sign up and play in one of the two tournaments for $25 or both for $35. If you medal (top 3 (bronze, sliver, gold)), you'll be qualified to play in the 2014 State Games of America. Personally I love playing in the Doubles event... m ... more

All the Sunflower State Games events/competitions take place in the Topeka area. The disc golf tournament is at Crestview course. http://sunflowergames.com/disc-golf

Ben Nispel   July 6, 2013 at 12:37pm

Awesome, Hopefully Tim will head down with me and we'll see you there!

Austin Cranston   July 6, 2013 at 4:01pm

Any chance of a car pool?

Alan Fox    July 5, 2013 at 7:14pm

Disc golf at Tuttle anyone?


Alan Fox    July 4, 2013 at 3:20pm

For anyone wondering all holed are up at Tuttle except hole 10

Rick Petrie   July 4, 2013 at 12:39pm

Is there something in the way preventing them from re-installing #10? They've been known to forget to return all 18 baskets... lost in their storage lot I suppose. LOL!

[member not found]   July 4, 2013 at 12:45pm

Alan Fox   July 4, 2013 at 9:03pm

Rick Petrie    July 4, 2013 at 12:52am

Hey all you 2012-2013 DFOK Points League Champions, please tell me you received your $10 Discs Unlimited gift certificates (via email). I sent them out back on the 19th, but haven't heard a peep out of anyone receiving them (except for Bill).

Kevin Clouse   July 3, 2013 at 9:23pm

Hey I got mine Rick! Cool prize for tag league!

Austin Cranston    July 3, 2013 at 4:28pm

I'm sure there will be a car pool for the state games for the first day doubles, but will there be one for singles the next day?

William Mitchell   July 4, 2013 at 12:08am

Check with Clouse. He needs a push to enter in this tournament.

Mitchell Brenn    July 3, 2013 at 3:15pm

Would anyone be willing to teach me how to push putt? I've watching this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_7RPOmSSsU and others and I just don't get it when I try to implement it in real life.

Rick Petrie   July 4, 2013 at 9:16am

See y'all soon.

Kevin Zane    July 3, 2013 at 3:24am

I have a couple guys I'm waiting on for a response about a doubles partner for the Sunflower State Games... anyone interested if they don't pull through??

FYI, There is a residency requirement for the Sunflower State Games. You have to be a Kansas resident to participate, partially because it is a qualifying event for the State Games of America.

Kevin Zane   July 5, 2013 at 12:34am

....well, one of those guys got back to me and we will be out there saturday and sunday. Good luck everyone.

Rick Petrie   July 5, 2013 at 7:23pm

Cool Zane. DFOK domination of the SSG! (ya, you're still a DFOKer in my mind).

Rick Petrie    July 2, 2013 at 3:32am

Basket A.P.B. for Fairmont tomorrow night. Oh, and all are welcome to play league while you're there.



Rick Petrie    June 28, 2013 at 12:21pm

For those of you who do not read or have opted out of the official DFOK News emails, I thought I would post an update here.
At approx. 6:00pm last night, we received our last Half Fairway donation, thus completing our Fairmont Disc Golf Course Fairway Sponsorship Campaign!
Stay tuned for construction updates, scheduled club work days, etc.

It's going to be an exciting July & August for Disc Golf in Manhattan, KS!


Mark Kewley    June 26, 2013 at 11:47pm

I forgot to mention at league... I found an Excal with no name at Fairmont the other day.


Rick Petrie    June 26, 2013 at 12:55pm

Lost Disc Alert:
I threw it On The Wild Side of the fence on new fairway #3.
It's a mostly white with tie-dye swirl Wraith (champion plastic).
Otherwise known as the perfect pattern to lose in tall grass. :-)

Rick Petrie   June 30, 2013 at 6:51pm

FOUND. Three guys were playing the new layout (sign-to-sign style) and found my lost Wraith. I just happened to ask them if they found a Wraith over the fence, they said yes, then handed it to me. Awesome!

Rick Petrie    June 26, 2013 at 11:40am

In all the preround fundrasing lastnight, I forgot to mention this week's DFOK Meeting.
So here goes.
Thursday, June 27th (tomorrow)
Manhattan Public Library
at intersection on Poyntz & Juliette.

Hope to see you there.


scott collins    June 24, 2013 at 3:41pm

I am willing to start another $50 group to sponsor a half fariway at Fairmont. I need 4 more people to get in on this with me. And as I have been informed by Rick time is of the essence so lets get this money together so we can have our names etched in metal forever.

thats great alan

Rick Petrie   June 25, 2013 at 11:10am

Scott, Jon is up to speed with this, I think he just wanted everyone to know what they are agreeing to/what recognition they're getting for their donation.

Rick Petrie   June 25, 2013 at 10:49pm

FYI, Alan finished up this group of five tonight before doubles league. Good Job Alan! Watch for official DFOK News later tonight.

Rick Petrie    June 21, 2013 at 2:23am

Hey everybody, the Sunflower State Games disc golf tournament (in Topeka) is only 3 weeks away.

It offers one of the few doubles tournaments Kansas each year, on Saturday. The a standard rules Singles event on the following Sunday. If you medal (1st, 2nd or 3rd) you are then qualified to participate in the State Games of America!

Go here to get signed up ---> http://www.sunflowergames.com/disc-golf


Rick Petrie    June 20, 2013 at 5:24pm

Greeting on this Thursday lunch hour (for me at least). I have some news that's still "developing", but not locked down with check in hand just yet. Therefore I'm going to keep it vague and post it on this Talk tab. This morning I received another verbal commitment for a Full Fairway! Considering the organization, it's a 95% lock! That means we only have 2 more fairways to go! (Technically it's shown as 1 Full + 2 Half fairways, but we can do some shuffli ... more

Rick Petrie   June 20, 2013 at 2:41pm

Revise that. one more Half fairway sponsor locked in their spot over the lunch hour today. We're in the home stretch now! Unly 1.5 fairways to go!

Travis Bailey    June 18, 2013 at 8:30am

After not playing Warner in nearly 1.5 months, I've learned that the new hazards on hole 6 like to eat discs. Took me a solid 30 minutes to find it. Avoid them at all costs. Haha!


Rick Petrie    June 17, 2013 at 10:45pm

Calling all portable baskets for tomorrow night's Manhattan Area Doubles League (temporarily) at Fairmont Park.

Use the "Talk" page on the Doubles League page to RSVP.
