Put this together earlier.

With our Fairmont Fundraiser 3 Disc Challenge coming up, I thought I should start figuring out what driver(s) I want to order.
To do so I'm planning on practicing with what I already have, plus trading or borrowing a few discs with fellow DFOK members...

If you are looking for an overstable mid range I've got a sentinel you can borrow.

Alan Fox   April 8, 2013 at 10:54am

172 Rick

Rick Petrie   April 9, 2013 at 8:31pm

Thanks Alan. Both of mine are 175. Travis, I appreciate the offer but I think the Sentinel's are going to be too overstable for me.

Rick Petrie    April 7, 2013 at 5:18pm

For those of you who care to post their scores (or even just reviews of the layout) from yesterday's DU Open tourney, I added a 20 hole layout option to the course in Herrington.


Josh Carroll   April 7, 2013 at 2:40pm

I think you need to take out the spaces between the hole numbers on your custom layout. Might be causing the funky look when it shows up in the News feed.

Rick Petrie   April 7, 2013 at 5:41pm

Good call Josh. I made that change & it worked... except it does not apply to scores already entered (so I removed & reposted my scores)

Rick Petrie    April 7, 2013 at 3:30am

It was awesome to see so many DFOK members at the DU Open today!

How cool was it to hear the Tournament Director, Dennis Vahsholtz, say "Disc Golf is alive & well in Manhattan."

Alan Fox   April 1, 2013 at 9:50am

thanks buddy!

Alan Fox    April 1, 2013 at 3:46am

Just so everyone knows this weekend at tuttle we set our lights out for night golf Friday and left them out to play again Saturday and I had 5 of my flashlights stolen off the baskets and a few of the milk jugs were destroyed. Just a heads up in case other people had this idea pick your lights up each night


Travis Bailey    March 31, 2013 at 11:58pm

Anyone going to the DU open this weekend? If so, any idea when it will end? I'm super interested in going, but need to be home on Sunday by 6:00. Thanks!

Haha yeah, Saturday. Thanks, I'll definitely consider signing up now.

Jon Tveite   April 3, 2013 at 4:18pm

I made it back by 6, but I had to miss the awards. Luckily some DFOK guys collected my prizes for me. I think I left Herrington around 5:15.

Travis Bailey   April 3, 2013 at 4:34pm

Cool. Thanks!

Dimond Cutter    March 30, 2013 at 3:41pm

Mark Kewley   March 30, 2013 at 5:35pm

Happy Birthday Alan!

Damen W    March 26, 2013 at 1:22am

after some heated discussion......the lions club decided to fund seven more baskets tonight and 3 additional sleeves which will give us five alternates now. Hopefully everything will be finished by the end of april with a three weeks to practice before the tournament.

Adam Johnson   March 25, 2013 at 11:36pm

great work!

Mark Kewley   March 25, 2013 at 11:46pm

It looks like Monkey Island is Cancelled: http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/101623


Rick Petrie    March 21, 2013 at 2:34am

For those of you eagerly awaiting Points League and Bag Tag league updates, I will not be able to post them tonight.
I will get everything up to day either tomorrow night, or Friday afternoon. Also, I will do my best to make sure this does not become the norm.

My apologies.


Adam Johnson    March 20, 2013 at 2:20pm

Fairmont expansion project... advisory. I went out Monday and unfortunately met one of our neighbors. I had my dog (on a leash) and rick happened to drive by. I went and said hi and we were talking. My dog bolted and the leash was pulled out of my hand. She went straight to my brother who then picked up the leash. Anyway the neighbor saw this and yelled from his front porch to get my dog on a leash and that this was not a dog park. He used some more colorful words to tell me this but that ... more

Kevin Clouse   March 20, 2013 at 4:36pm

I had the same thing happen to me...in fact I'm sure he said the same exact words to me. I feel like I have talked to the guy before, he said he was okay with the disc golf just didn't like other dogs "mocking" his dogs and making them bark. Good point though Adam that is the l ... more

Adam Johnson   March 20, 2013 at 9:54pm

I think there is a park rule. manahattan also has city ordinace about dogs on leash... i dont really know if fairmont is considered city limit

Rick Petrie    March 20, 2013 at 3:57am

Attention Points League Players:
Please be sure to let me know which division you wish to compete in for this new Spring Season. This includes if you simply want to stay in the same division as you were in for the Winter Season. I still need to know your decisions.

I might as well bump up to advanced, thanks Rick!

Josh Carroll   March 21, 2013 at 1:04pm

Something to think about next year. Is there a way to implement performance-based tiers? Could definitely help get the field spread more evenly without forcing people to make a decision to play in a division that they aren't comfortable in. Maybe your first 3 league rounds in a season determine the tier you belong to? After those three, you're locked in that tier until the end of the season.

Rick Petrie   March 28, 2013 at 1:04am

These are interesting ideas and want to hear more about them. We will meet again, like we did last year, to establish format & rules (+changes) for the 2013-2014 season.

Rick Petrie    March 18, 2013 at 1:04am

Shout out to the following DFOK members for all their hard work at today's Fairmont Park work day.
Kevin Clouse
Alan Fox
Adam Johnson
Mark Kewley
Thad Pultz
Bill Pryor
Daisuke Takahashi

If you missed today's workday, don't worry, there will be many more workdays in the future.


Rick Petrie    March 17, 2013 at 1:17pm

Good Morning Everyone!

Reminder: Today is the first WORKDAY of the Fairmont Disc Golf Course expansion project.

Today's focus will be to do some basic clean-up of a specific wooded fairway area so as to get a better look at what we have to work with in there. This is sure to be the coolest "before & after" part of the course expansion project so don't miss out on a chance to help & see it change before our very eyes.

Sunday March 17
10:00am -thru - Mid-Afternoon
(Come & go as you can. Any amount of time will be helpful)

See you there!

Kevin Clouse   March 17, 2013 at 9:50am

Could someone pick me up at 10? I don't have a ride out there until Meghan gets off work at 1

Mark Kewley    March 15, 2013 at 8:57pm

Anyone playing Tutle tonight?

[member not found]   March 15, 2013 at 5:14pm

A guy in DL will play.

Mark Kewley    March 14, 2013 at 3:01am

I'm going to check out this week's Fairmont back 9 layout tomorrow around 5:15 if anyone wants to play to some signs.

^ Very interesting.

Rick Petrie   March 14, 2013 at 1:50pm

Travis, Yep it is interesting. Good news is it flows easier than it reads... (It's layed out as a 10 addition, but #2 temp could be easily dropped to make it 9 holes).

Adam Johnson   March 14, 2013 at 1:50pm

If you haven't played the reverse then you should give it a try... my opinion is that it has 2 AWESOME shots, but does complicate flow

Kevin RevKev Clark    March 13, 2013 at 6:23pm

The THIRD ANNUAL LCM "Break The Chains" tournament will be held on Saturday, April 27th at Fairmont Park. Registration is not yet open, but I will post when it is. In the meantime...

Players package so far is a disc and a mini. Tourney discs will be Discraft XLs, Z-Nukes, Z-Predators, and Crystal Z Buzzzes. Mark your calendars!

Is this still happening? I can't find the registration anywhere and was looking at possibly making it out to Manhattan that weekend.

Travis Bailey   April 3, 2013 at 9:15pm

I think he said he just hasn't made the page for it last night at league. He said it should be up by the end of the week. It's still on!

Kevin Zane   April 4, 2013 at 11:22pm

Cool, It would be a really good excuse for me to make the trip to Manhattan now that I am back in KC. I'll do my best to make it out.
