2017 Ace Race Disc has a name: Sting

If you played in last year’s Ace Race, the disc has a name Sting and was PDGA approved on Nov 7, 2017.

Marketing speak:

“The global Ace Race evaluates a new Discraft prototype each year with the help of 20,000 testers, and last year the players were once again pleased with the results. The design goal was to create a disc that is easy to control, holds an almost perfect line on all throws, and fits comfortably in most hands. The Sting achieved all of this.

Here’s what the disc can do:

  • Holds an almost perfect line on big throws
  • Even new players can hold an anhyzer line with long glide
  • Rip it for high-speed hyzer flip drives
  • Delivers long flights to reach maximum distance

Stability rating: 0.0 | Available weight range: 160-174 | Suitable for all players” – by Discraft

Quilchena Ace Race

It’s ON! So there were some hiccups and a few missteps with this one, we’re stepping in to make sure the event still happens. If you have previously registered for the event, please register again. If you have previously paid for the event let us know.

The current plan is to keep it at Quilchena, we’ll do everything we can to make that happen, but if a venue change is required we’ll be at Robert Burnaby as our back-up location. If we need to use the back-up location, people who can no longer make the event will be offered a refund or they can just get their player’s package later.

Ace Race Tomorrow

Burnaby Ace Race is tomorrow, and as of right now, I’ve got 25 or so Player’s Packages left, so you should be able to show up tomorrow and get one. If we sell out, we do try to make it work so that everyone is able to participate, even if they have to use someone else’s discs for the day, and get the full player’s package later.

The Disc Cellar will be on location all day tomorrow, although we’ll have a bit less selection than normal because we’ve got the Ace Race player’s packages to haul out as well.

Here’s the course map for tomorrow as designed by Chris Miki and Owen James, if you like it they get the credit, if you don’t I get the blame.

Club Partners?

In addition to The Disc Cellar Open we’re hoping to bring a number of other events to BC this year.  We’re looking for Club’s to partner with in order to make this happen.  What that probably looks like is The Disc Cellar dealing with the registration, ordering, shipping, player’s packages and all of that stuff.  While the Club offers up a course and does local promotion of the event, with some day of setup and take down.

Here’s a list of the 4 main events that we’d like to see happen, let us know if you’re interested:

Trilogy Challenge

To be held sometime between May 31st and August 22nd.  Here’s what the player’s get:

  • Unreleased Dynamic Discs Driver
  • Unreleased Latitude 64 Midrange
  • Unreleased Westside Discs Putter
  • Trilogy Mini
  • Trilogy Lanyard
  • Trilogy Bag Tag
  • Trilogy Koozie
  • Trilogy Scorecard and Pencil

Discraft Ace Race

To be held sometime between August 1st and October 31st.  This is the original of this type of event, and we’ve run one in Burnaby for 8 years now.  That said, it doesn’t have to stay in Burnaby…

This one has the most clearly defined format, you’re just going for Aces on a shortened course.

Player’s will get:

  • 2 prototype discs, same mold, sometimes in different plastics
  • usually a mini of some sort
  • some other accessories

Vibram Birdie Bash

To be held between March 1 and June 1.  You get to select your Vibram discs, and you’re trying to get birdies or less, doesn’t have to be Aces.

Player’s get:

  • 2 Vibram golf discs (their choice)
  • 1 Vibram DG Dri fit
  • 1 Vibram mini & sticker
  • 1 Vibram towel

There are also lots of prizes: champion disc, spirit award disc, round card prizes and CTPs.

Battle of the Aces

To be held sometime that fits well in the regular event schedule.  Rules are essentially the same as the Ace Race.  This is a Legacy Discs event.

Player’s get:

  • 2 premium discs
  • 1 dri-fit shirt
  • 2 wristbands
  • 2 stickers
  • 1 Bearded Brothers bar


So clubs, or individuals, if you’re interested in helping host one of these events this year, let us know and we’ll make it happen!

Got any old Ace Race discs?

I’ve been contacted by someone who’s looking for historical Ace Race discs, specifically these years:

  • 2004: Glide
  • 2005: Slipstream
  • 2006: Meteor
  • 2007: Impact
  • 2010: Hornet

Discs should be in decent condition but can be used.  If you’ve got any that you’re willing to part with from those years (note: I ran my first Ace Race in 2006) let me know and I’ll coordinate.

The discs must have Ace Race stamp indicating the prototype disc and cannot be the production model.
