Mundy Park League: Week 3 front 9Mundy Park League: Week 3 back 9

Welcome Theo Brown!

Theo has officially been part of the team for only a couple of weeks, but in that short time span he’s managed to win an A-Tier in Amateur Advanced, no small feat considering that was his first PDGA event (with a PDGA membership).

With Theo on the team we add some youth (we’re a little Masters heavy at the moment), some increased regional representation (Islands) and clearly a whole lot of skill and passion.

Check out Theo’s Bio for more of his history and what’s in his bag.

We look forward to supporting Theo and his goals.

We are pleased to be bringing a PDGA League to the lower mainland. The venue: Mundy Paaaaark!

This is a PDGA League, which means that you get to work on your PDGA Rating and collect PDGA Points. Not a PDGA Member? Doesn’t matter you don’t need to be, anyone is welcome to participate.

The Disc Cellar is presenting a barebones PDGA league at Mundy Park Jul 5-Sep 6, 2017. Why barebones? Initial feedback on the concept was people are more concerned with getting the opportunity to work on their PDGA rating than they are in winning prizes. So remove prizes and the league is dirt cheap, and you get to work on your ratings.

Course: Course layout may change week to week, but will always be Mundy Park

Start Time: flex start, on Wednesdays

Rules: all PDGA rules in full effect

Divisions: all PDGA divisions are offered, pick anyone that you’re eligible for

Prizes: no prizes, just bragging rights

Ace Pot: any ace hit during league play with 2 witnesses will earn a $20 Disc Cellar gift certificate

How many weeks? The league runs for 10 weeks, you can join in at any time, play as many weeks or as few as you like. You do not have to play on any given week.

Cost: $15/person for the 10 weeks, or $2.50/week drop-in. Pay online, or in person at the course.

So how does this actually work? Show up at Mundy Park on Wednesday, play the designated course, submit your scores to david@disccellar.ca (picture of a signed score card), and repeat. Unofficial results will be updated weekly, with final PDGA Ratings being generated once the league is complete.

This starts today, I will be at the course from 6-7pm tonight, and we’ll be playing the regular Mundy Park recreational course (twice). In order for your score to be valid: it must be for the designated course, it must be on a Wednesday, and it must be witnessed by 2 other people (note: the other people do not need to be playing in the league, they don’t even need to be disc golfers) (correction 12 Jul 2017: you must play with 2 other people and they must be league participants or PDGA observers, these are PDGA restrictions). Basically, we’re trying to make this as flexible and easy as possible for everyone to do. Fit it in with your schedule, and improve the accuracy of your PDGA Rating.

GStar Roadrunner

New Prices: Innova GStar and Echo Star

This isn’t really new news, but we haven’t previously announced it. From time to time manufacturers change their prices, this usually happens at the beginning of the calendar year. Often this is a modest increase in the wholesale cost for discs, or a change in the retail pricing. This is almost always an increase.

This year, Innova due to operational efficiencies was able to lower the pricing on both GStar and Echo Star. For GStar that means that the MSRP dropped $2.00 from $17.99 to $15.99, while Echo Star dropped from $15.99 to $14.99. Our prices have matched this reduction for months now (although you’ll notice that isn’t the case for most Canadian retailers).

We have always recommended the various recycled plastics, including Echo Star as they represent some of the best value in Disc Golf, premium plastics for modest prices. This continues to be the case, but now GStar also offers an amazing value proposition when price is compared to expected durability/lifespan. There are also substantially more models available in GStar plastic than Echo Star, including a full compliment of midranges and putters (Echo Star is mostly drivers).

If you haven’t already considered GStar or Echo Star and don’t have other reasons to prefer other plastics, save yourself a few dollars on your next purchase and give them a try.

Congratulations Team!

Prodigy PAR2

‘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.

NSFW – JMac Fundraiser

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.

Legacy Pinnacle Phenom First Run

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.

Legacy Pinnacle edition Phenom First Runnote: the Phenom was previously released in Icon plastic, so this is the First Pinnacle Run, but are stamped as First Runs.
