From Scott Carpenter:

"Yep, I've played both of the Ames courses one time on the way up to Minnesota four years ago. Oh, there was a lot of mud on both of them.
Carroll Marty - I'm kind of surprised this course is only rated 3.50, because I really liked it. I suppose what gets it dinged is its length, even from the "pro" tees. But IMO the wooded holes, transition holes, and elevation makes up for it. Something that you're going to see the ... more

He also provided some links some YouTube videos of the courses - Carroll Marty (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjwFsBZoDdo, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0D_UTzPkDFQ, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMjmyz5yqog) and Stable Run (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tvaElmRzRM)

Disc Golf is once again in the top 1/4 for sport club point standings! Points are awarded to clubs for being highly active and organized (completing required paperwork on time, attending officer meetings, fundraising, traveling, hosting events). The point standings system is a factor in determining our annual SCC Budget Allocation.
We are currently sitting in 7th out of 29 total club teams with 190 points. Keep up the good work guys!


Josh Carroll    February 14, 2014 at 12:02am

Please leave suggestions/ideas for a back-up plan for determining the team that will be competing in Ames, IA in the event that the snow/weather prevents the completion of tryout rounds.

not so much with bryce though.

A.J Cruz   February 14, 2014 at 12:31am

When and where are we going to vote? Obviously majority of us want to vote so I say we get started on that as soon as possible to make sure we can work around everyones schedule and get everyone at the meeting.

Jacob Patchen   February 15, 2014 at 12:09pm

We can try to have a meeting this Thursday. It seems like most of us are usually able to make it to those meetings.


Josh Carroll    January 24, 2014 at 11:33pm

Just a reminder, first group practice of the semester will be at Warner Park tomorrow (Saturday, January 25th) at 1:30pm. See you all there.


Josh Carroll    January 2, 2014 at 4:14am

Got everybody's names and numbers organized and jersey sizes noted. Should be able to place the order within the week or beginning of next week. Any last minute changes, be sure to let me know.


Josh Carroll    December 25, 2013 at 9:07pm

Merry Christmas to you guys! I appreciate each and every one of you and am proud to be apart of such a passionate team.

Josh Carroll   December 26, 2013 at 1:35am

Haha, thanks Mitch :P

Travis Bailey    December 21, 2013 at 9:36am

Guys, continue to ask for sponsorship help. We are hundreds of dollars short for the next few upcoming tournaments. We desperately need support from family and friends!


Josh Carroll   December 20, 2013 at 11:43pm

Just to point out, however, the recogntion on jerseys is pretty much out of the question at this point. We got the $100 from Discs Unlimited so I told them that I'd put their logo on the backside. The "Bronze" level sponsorship of $25 would still be acceptable.

Travis Bailey   December 21, 2013 at 10:45am

Yep, but we could put some type of thank you to donators up on here and Facebook and all that jazz. Just because the recognition isn't there doesn't mean we shouldn't ask.

Josh Carroll   December 21, 2013 at 11:00am

Good point. Also, I received some contact information for another potential fundraiser. Travis Redeker sent us who to contact about working the concessions stand in Bramlage for a night.

I deffinetly agree on being cheap. Just to make sure though, this is the only place we can order from?

Josh Carroll   December 24, 2013 at 12:17am

Not the only place. Just one of the first I had found that is reasonably priced and doesn't have a ridiculous minimum quantity. They also must be on this list of Licensees: http://www.k-state.edu/logos/lrg-current-licensees.pdf

Ben Nispel   December 27, 2013 at 6:48pm

Hey, I'll buy one!

Josh Carroll    December 14, 2013 at 2:48am

Practice will be in the MAC Gym at the Rec again tomorrow, same time! I will also be bringing some samples for an official KSUDGC mark which will be showcased on our 2013-14 season jerseys. Bring your putters!


Josh Carroll    November 7, 2013 at 7:33pm

Sorry for the late notice, but we will be meeting tonight, November 7 at 6:00pm in 401B Conference Room at Hale Library (4th Floor). See you all there!


Ian Waters    November 6, 2013 at 2:42am

Vinyl Banner sale is on again! Unless we pay for faster shipping we wouldn't get it here in time for the tournament so maybe Thursday we could discuss having a banner and Josh you should bring a copy of the design you made up to the meeting. Here is the link to the deal. http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/105524/build-a-sign---3x6-personalized-vinyl-banner

Josh Carroll   November 8, 2013 at 1:24pm

I went ahead and jumped the gun on this deal, I called Build-A-Sign to make sure they were still offering the November special. I submitted the artwork and went ahead and paid for the banner myself. If the club likes it and wants to claim the banner for KSUDGC use, we can vote to have club funds r ... more

Travis Bailey   November 5, 2013 at 4:59pm

Yeah. We can discuss it on Thursday. (And really, I don't plan on spending more than 20 dollars for the cost of lunch)

Travis Bailey   November 5, 2013 at 5:58pm

Josh, even if the club paid for it it would be pointless for you to go buy the stuff anyway. I can just pick it up with club cash when I get the rest of the supplies. Haha, why add that extra reimbursing step?

Josh Carroll   November 5, 2013 at 6:27pm

Doesn't matter to me, we can vote on specifics at the club meeting.

I'll be there Mark!

Rick Petrie   November 3, 2013 at 2:48pm

I'll be donating a couple discs, one purple and one white... 1 Purple Discraft Buzzz and 1 White Legacy Cannon (wabash cannon?)

Rick Petrie   November 3, 2013 at 3:01pm

The wife and I will also be donating 2 K-State Basketball tickets for their game on Nov. 13th. Look for a special sign-up for a chance at these... (to make sure they go to someone who will use them).

Josh Carroll    October 21, 2013 at 7:56pm

It is my understanding that there is neither finances nor interest in going to Austin, TX for the regional qualifier tournament. For those who did not hear the news, Iowa State decided to postpone their qualifier tournament until spring since the planning wasn't where it needed to be to successfully host it at this time. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the agenda looking forward.

David Moreno   October 21, 2013 at 12:34pm

So no Texas?

Ian Waters    October 16, 2013 at 11:01pm

At our tournament I'm not sure how raffle tickets will be sold but you could sell them by using the raffle tickets as a mulligan and you can have up to 18 mulligans but can buy as many raffle tickets as you want. Say 1 ticket for 1$, 9 tickets for 7$, 18 tickets for 15$ or some other denominations that make more sense. We should have buckets in front of each item being raffled off that they want. Just some thoughts on that.

Josh Carroll   October 16, 2013 at 3:56pm

Mulligans aren't going to fly (orders of the TD) :P Travis has already mentioned that he is very anti-mulligan. But thanks for the raffle suggestions, I think I've heard of that system where they can put the tickets down for the items that they want.

Ian Waters   October 16, 2013 at 9:54pm

Haha gotcha, no problem

Josh Carroll    October 15, 2013 at 5:43am

Pardon the late acknowledgement, but I'd like to thank everybody that gave up time and energy to get the Yellowbook phonebooks delivered last week. Many of you sacrificed several hours each day to get these books distributed on time and I wanted you to know that your hard work is appreciated.
Thanks to Travis for discovering the opportunity, our club raised a total of $283.55 from the phonebook distribution fundraiser. Thanks for your hard work guys:
Travis, David, Tim, Jacob, Jeff, and ... more

Come experience the new MD Disc Golf nickel plated baskets called "The BasketOctober"!!!

We will be using portable baskets for this tourney so that the course can be tweeked before installing permanent baskets. Your input is what we want! Come be a part of this course development and try the newest design in baskets.

October 27th - Baldwin City Course Kick-Off



Ian Waters    October 14, 2013 at 3:49am

Hey guys about a week ago I mentioned a vinyl banner we could get on the cheap. Here is a link for all the details on how to get the deal http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/103850/build-a-sign---3x6-personalized-vinyl-banner . Pretty much we can get a 3 x 6 foot banner with any design we want for 19$, free shipping. If we get a design put together we could even have this for the tournament we are hosting.

Josh Carroll   October 14, 2013 at 9:11pm

I like the idea. I threw together a quick sample of a possible banner design. What do you all think: http://www.discgolfscene.com/media/198808_g.jpg

Josh Carroll   October 14, 2013 at 9:12pm

Oh...well I just checked the link and it said the offer for the banner has expired.

Ian Waters   October 14, 2013 at 10:16pm

Dang it! Well I'll keep an eye out for it again in the future. That it is one slick banner though!

Yeah what David said was what I thought we were doing. The final decision is made by the Iowa people. Also I too dont remember us "officially" voting on it. We just talked about it.

David Moreno   October 14, 2013 at 4:28pm

so are we dropping the TX one? because I need to know so I can tell my aunt if we are still staying there or not.

Travis Bailey   October 14, 2013 at 6:30pm

Yeah, definitely need to clear all if this up.
