‘Tis the season of manufacturer events. This one is unique in that the discs are GLOW. You get your option of playing a day round or an evening round or both. Each round is 18 shortened holes such that they are “par 2’s”. Unlike some other events, you putt out each hole. Lowest total round score wins.
The afternoon and evening sessions are separate, and include their own prizes. If you want to play both sessions, it costs only another $5. If you want to play additional rounds in either the afternoon or evening sessions in order to improve your score, they are $5 each.
95% of the pre-orders have shipped. The website has been updated with what’s still in stock. Here’s some pictures of the discs that came in.
The Glow JK Aviars feel amazing…
Some of you undoubtedly know Johnny “JMac” MacDonald, and some of you won’t. Regardless of where you fall on that spectrum, we have a fundraiser that may interest you. We’ve partnered with DoubleRam Discs (who donated the design) and with Innova (who are making the discs) to help raise funds for JMac. Funds will be used to help fund a bucket list trip (which includes and Innova warehouse visit), with leftovers being used to pursue future treatment options.
JMac himself will have 100 DX Flat Top Rocs that he’ll be selling on his trip for US$20.
We’ll be selling the rest of the discs with proceeds going to JMac.
Here’s the stamp:
Discs are in the production queue and are expected to be available mid-late March 2017.
The Legacy Phenom is a fairway driver, rated as speed: 8, glide: 5, turn: -1, fade: 2. Pinnacle edition offers a pearly and translucent look to the plastic, has a slightly firmer feel and provides a little more stability in windy conditions compared to its icon edition counterpart.
The First Run in Pinnacle has an official release date of February 21st, 2017. At this point we’re just gauging interest to see if we should bring some in.
note: the Phenom was previously released in Icon plastic, so this is the First Pinnacle Run, but are stamped as First Runs.

Draft course map is:
Amateur and Junior pads may be added.
Reminder this is the second lower mainland event in the Left Coast Cup and the third overall.
We expect that the rounds from Roctoberfest presented by Innova will be included in the 15 Nov 2016 ratings update. All stuff has been submitted to the PDGA.
If you’re curious what a TD Report looks like you can see it here (Roctoberfest presented by Innova TD Report).
You may notice that the individual payouts in the amateur divisions are relatively small, that’s intentional, and a byproduct of providing all amateur players with player’s packages.
Final results are posted on the PDGA web site: Roctoberfest presented by Innova. If you were a participant please double check to make sure that your PDGA number (if you have one) is not missing. Also please verify that your total score is in fact accurate.
Congratulations goes first and foremost to all participants for braving the scary forecast to play in totally reasonable conditions. Thank you to Innova for sponsoring the event and the great player’s packages! Also thank you to The Disc Cellar for organizing the event and the Left Coast Cup series.
The next Left Coast Cup series event is:
- Mayhem at the Meadows in Penticton (29 Oct 2016) registration open now
- the Squamish Open in Squamish (19 Nov 2016) registration open probably later this week
Series points will be tabulated and posted later this week.

Thank you to everyone who helped verify scores, moved baskets, did course maps, flagged the course, etc… Disc Golf events are not possible without you, you’re AWESOME!
Scores are updated through Round 1: http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/30351
We’re still a go for today, but we’re not full. So day of registration is available. Keep in mind day of registration costs $5 more than the on-line pre-registration.
We’ve also been advised that the Township may close the park, at this point it is not closed, so we are moving ahead normally. However if the park is closed, the event will be halted or cancelled. Based on the forecast we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to avoid all of that, but it is a possibility.
So long as the Township does not close the park, we will be playing. We may alter the course to accommodate the conditions.
If you are registering this morning, you will be able to do so between 9-9:30am, with the player’s meeting at 9:30 and the first round starting at 10am.
