Stewart McIsack – let’s get him some press

Some of you are probably following the PDGA 2017 Amateur World Championships and already know that Mission’s Stewart McIsack (#73512) is currently in 7th place after 5 rounds (tied for 4th after 3 rounds).

Let’s see if we can get him some mainstream media coverage:

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.

Congratulations Team!

Team members: Michael Ramanauskas (2nd MM1), Theo Brown (1st MA1), Sarah Hokom (FPO)

  • Grandmasters (MPG): 5th place, Dan Laitsch

BC Open is here, good luck to all competitors

There’s some 177 people playing 3 courses in and around Langley today. The event is being organized by others and we’re just a small event sponsor. We do however have a number of sponsored player’s in the event.

For the event we’re cheering a little bit harder for:

  • Daniel Laitsch (16032) MPG – 3rd after Day 1
  • Theo Brown (94691) MA1 – 1st after Day 1
  • Jordan Bernelot Moens (86370) FA1 – 1st after Day 1
  • Michael Ramanauskas (65898) MM1 – 2nd after Day 1
  • Sarah Hokom (34563) FPO – 1st after Day 1 – team member for the weekend

May everyone throw well, be happy with their rounds and exceed their ratings (which I believe is unfortunately mathematically impossible based on how the PDGA calculates ratings).

Here’s some photos of some of our sponsored players goofing around during practice rounds.

Squamish Open TOMORROW

We’re a little over half full for the Squamish Open tomorrow, you can still register online tonight until 6pm, and then you can register on location tomorrow morning as well (there’s an extra $5 charge for that).

Draft course map is:Squamish Open Map

Amateur and Junior pads may be added.

Reminder this is the second lower mainland event in the Left Coast Cup and the third overall.

Roctoberfest presented by Innova: PDGA Update

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.

Roctoberfest presented by Innova: Final Results

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.

Winners for the day were:

  • MPO: Miguel Alvarado
  • MA1: Brett Hislop
  • MM1: Michael Ramanauskas (Disc Cellar sponsored player)
  • MG1: Rob Gillette
  • MA2: Christian Tasse
  • FA2: Robin Darling
  • MA3: Bryan Smith
  • MA4: Thiago Crevatin Azevedo
  • MJ4: Ezekiel Salmon

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!

Day of Registration: Roctoberfest presented by Innova

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.
