Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

Durty, While we're on the topic of tournaments, I listed the local experts/businesses below. Dynamic Discs is "involved" in putting on the Little Apple Open each year (I'll let mrsenortyler or smitty elaborate if needed). Anyway, based on conversations with them, I have no doubt there will...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

Smitty, Regarding Manhattan getting three KDGA events: Right now I'm hyper focused on getting Warner built, I'm not to concerned about tourneys (at least not yet). But if I were in tourney mode, here's what I would pursue / start looking into. FAIRMONT PARK: I think it would be easy right now to use...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

Smitty,
Your question/statement about tourney's got me thinking... but I don't have time to put it into text. I'll try to jump back in later tonight or tomorrow to lay out my thoughts on tourneys at Manhattan area courses.

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

Smitty, We're doing what we can to get the sport going strong in Manhattan. DG could grow very rapidly now that we'll have two free courses "in town", rather than just one out of town course that you have to "pay to play" (@ the State Park). It doesn't sound like a big deal, but ...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

I can confirm that yesterday (friday) the City of Manhattan received the another contribution for our disc golf course project . With that in mind, between the checks we've received and the pledges that have been made, WE ONLY NEED TO FIND SPONSORS FOR ONE FULL FAIRWAY ($400), AND ONE HALF FAIRWAY (...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

BREAKING NEWS (since last night's post): Around mid-day today, yet another interested party contacted me and made a pledge to sponsor a "Full Fairway"! They went on to say the check was going in the mail today to the City. That's great news! So, after adding up the funding we've already d...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

Durty Doggy, I can appreciate the idea of everybody pulling together to take portable baskets to Warner Park for a tourney. As you might have already heard, for a month last summer, a bunch of us took baskets to Fairmont on Wednesday nights for league. I was glad to hear about it in time help and pa...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

By the way, we are 58% finished with our fund raising efforts.

With that in mind, there's still some spots available if you want to get your name or someone else's name (or company name) on the course signage.

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

rlangton, Glad you enjoyed our revised course layout. It has taken some serious politicking to even get a glimpse of the wooded area for #1 & #2. You no doubt still have some connections out here in Manhattan, right? Do you know of any potential donors? Pulling a few strings of the right people ...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

If you want to stay up to date on this project, I have set-up an account of my own on Twitter and will try to post daily updates. We're still in the fund raising stage right now, but I will keep posting updates to Twitter through out the entire process until we're playing out there. To see my update...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

Here's a couple photos from the fairways. This is fairway #1 looking from near the basket location back towards the tee box on top of the hill. The trees with orange ribbons on them will be removed by Parks & Rec. Forestry staff. Don't worry, we're gonna leave plenty of trees in the way to reall...

Re: Warner Park Update - Manhattan, KS

As you'll see in the course map below, we were able to work with the Parks & Rec. Dept. to put some fairways in the thick wooded areas. The "open" looking fairways will be difficult too because of the constant grade/slope challenges at Warner Park, not to mention the scrub brush sort o...

I have a Warner Park Project Update for you. As you might or might not know, Mark Kewley and I have been working with the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department to build a disc golf course in the south east corner of Warner Park in Manhattan, KS. After our last disc golf presentation at the Novem...
