We’re proud to have been a part of a number of new courses over the years, but this is the farthest East we’ve ventured so far. Congratulations to Sam Meggs and the community of The Pas on embracing Disc Golf.
Like so many Disc Golf projects this one wouldn’t have been possible without a motivated and dedicated local volunteer putting in countless hours. It also wouldn’t have been possible without sponsors and grants. In particular The Pas Community Renewal Corporation (TPCRC) was instrumental in making this new course install possible. Let’s spread the love and take a moment to let them know that their contribution and generosity is appreciated by the Disc Golf Community everywhere!
So give them a like on Facebook, or send them a note, or an email. Here’s some pictures of what they made possible:
Format: depending on weather and course conditions we will be playing the 10 recreational pads, followed by 10 additional holes using either the recreational pads or the alternate pads. If course conditions/weather make some of the alternate pads inappropriate those holes will either be skipped or played from the recreational pads. We will not be playing a second round, although if participants are interested we can do a break and reseed people after the first 10 holes.
There has been a shipping hiccup, which means that the MVP Circuit discs will be here on time, but the restocking order with lots of other goodies will not arrive until Tuesday.
Congratulations to Team Disc Cellar are in order after solid performances in the first two rounds by all players.
Derek Wintermans sits tied for 3rd place (Pro Open) at even par (6 strokes back of Matt Dixon [1st], but 4 strokes clear of Dave Ross [5th]), with two rounds above his rating 998 and 974 (compared to current rating of 949).
Wesley Eccleston sits in 1st place (Pro Masters) with a 5 stroke lead and two rounds above his rating 962 and 984 (compared to current rating of 952).
Jordan Moens sits in 1st place (Amateur Intermediate Women) with a 1 stroke lead and one round above her rating 829 (current rating 804).
Keep up the good work, but we’re proud of your day 1 performance regardless!
Provincials is underway this weekend in Kelowna, and we’d like to wish everyone good golf and good luck. Although we’re not on-site this weekend, we are a major event sponsor with a noticeable on course presence.
Find our tee-sign and snap a picture with it to be entered into a draw! Post it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and tag us so we know it’s there.
We’d also like to give a special shout out to the Team Disc Cellar members competing this weekend: Wes Eccleston, Derek Wintermans and Jordan Moens.
The Disc Cellar is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an MVP Circuit event at Robert Burnaby on Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 with player pack distribution starting at 10am, and the event starting approximately 10:30am.
For your $35 entry fee you get 3 discs (putter, midrange and driver) and an opportunity to take home one of the big prizes. Division prizes will depend on the normal divisions of those who register, but we expect to offer at least 3 prizes: Top Pro, Top Amateur and Top Woman. We may also have additional categories: Junior, Recreational, etc… depending on participation.
We will play 18-20 holes to determine the winners. There may be additional side events. Register through our online store.
Even if you cannot attend you can purchase a player's package.
Day of registration will be available if we still have packages left, but will cost $40.
We’ll be participating in and on location at the Burnaby Club Classic tomorrow at Robert Burnaby. We’ll have our mobile stock with us at the event, so feel free to stop by. The event itself probably goes from about 10am-2pm, but we’re just guessing depends on the turnout and how quickly people play.
When I really committed myself to disc golf in the fall of 2010, I was a sponge for disc related footage on YouTube. Unfortunately six years ago good coverage was hard to find. Since then there’s been an explosion of the sport on-line with what seems like unlimited tournaments, interviews and video clinics. My subscription bar always seems to have new videos every day. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite, frequently updated channels and break them down in to a few categories:
Major Tournament Coverage
The Spin TV – Innova’s channel, tournaments, interviews, lifestyle
Prodigy Disc – formerly McFlySoHigh, tournaments, team and disc info
McFlySoHigh Video – very high quality coverage from many major past events, not updated since 2015
