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:

Let them know you want to hear how Stew is doing through local media too!

Congratulations Team!

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.

Prodigy PAR2 April 22nd: Registration Open NOW

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.

Register Now

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.

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.

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.

Roctoberfest this Saturday: PDGA C-Tier

It’s official, Roctoberfest presented by Innova at Passive Park is a PDGA C-Tier event, so you’ll earn a player’s rating, and PDGA points in addition to the Left Coast Cup series and club points that you’ll earn. Amateurs will get a $65 player’s package.

Pre-registration closes tonight at midnight, if we’re not full, day of registration will be allowed (but costs $5 more).

Player’s meeting at 9:30am, first round at 10am. We should be done by about 5pm.

Trilogy Challenge TOMORROW

There’s still room for the Trilogy Challenge tomorrow at Mundy Park, you can continue to register on-line until midnight tonight. Or you can register in person tomorrow (costs an extra $5). It’s a rain or shine event, hope to see you there!


There's also still room for Roctoberfest next weekend, which has an even bigger player's package (less discs, more stuff).

Roctoberfest presented by Innova

We previously announced the Fraser Valley Championships 2016 presented by Innova, and the event is still happening but we changed the name, so the event will be called Roctoberfest presented by Innova. If anyone cares about the name change you can have a refund. The event should be a PDGA C-Tier (sanctioning pending).

Why the change? The Fraser Valley Disc Golf Club wanted to be involved in an event that contained the geographic identifier “Fraser Valley”, and given the timeline their involvement was not possible for this event. Our intention is to work with them to bring you the Fraser Valley Championships sometime in 2017.

Don’t forget that all amateurs get a killer Innova player’s package worth $65 and which will include a premium Innova disc (spoiler alert it’s either going to be the Mystere or the Savant, but we don’t know which).

This is the first event in the Left Coast Cup series.
