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.
The Disc Cellar along with Michael Ramanauskas have teamed up with Provincials this year to bring you a commemorative disc in some of the most sought after molds from Innova!
They are available for pre-order now through The Disc Cellar’s online store! There are 8 different discs to choose from, with at least 20 of each being available. The discs have been ordered, but will be arriving just in time for Provincials, so these are pre-order. In the store, there are two FREE SHIPPING options, one is in store pick-up, the other is delivery at Provincials. If you pre-order you guarantee that a disc will be put aside for you.
Because we don’t physically have the discs yet, you get to pre-order with the same granularity as we get to use on the custom order form, so we cannot at this time guarantee exact weights or colours.
Assuming that we don’t sell out during the pre-order phase, discs will be available for purchase at Provincials, and if there are any left, through The Disc Cellar until inventory is gone.
Your disc choices are:
Champion Metal Flake Gator (Flat Topped)
Champion Metal Flake Tern
I-Dye Champion TeeBird
Coloured Glow Champion Tern
Coloured Glow Champion Thunderbird
With the exception of the DX Roc and the XT Colt, none of the above discs are available as regular stock production models from Innova, and are only available custom stamped for events. So stock up while you can!
Here’s some mock-ups of what the stamp might look like on the disc (note: this are mock-ups of the actual design superimposed on a picture of an actual Innova disc [Champ Thunderbird] and will differ from the final product).
We’re quickly pulling some details together, and it looks like this is all going to work (there’s still a chance it falls apart, but it’s small). So here’s what the current plan is (subject to change), everyone will get a mini to help you remember the event (I know it’s small, but small is better than nothing, and it’s sponsorship and not coming out of your payouts).
Then, there will be some custom stamped discs available for sale at the event, and possibly pre-order as well. Artwork is being generated by the lovely and talented Michael Ramanauskas of the LDGC and washline.com.
We’ll be partnering with Innova for the custom stamping on this, so that means you have a short window where you can make your preferences known for what you’d like to see us order…
So if you see something you really want to throw, or collect, let us know. Personally I’m leaning towards Champ Metal Flake Gators, Champ Metal Flake Terns, R-Pro XDs, Colour Glow Champion Boss and maybe some Yeti’s. But I’m open to suggestions.
So I may have an opportunity to acquire some blank discs, and I was thinking that maybe there are some aspiring dyers out there. This could be a perfect match.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
you let me know that you’re interested in trying dyeing
I bring in some blank discs
you dye one (or possibly more of them)
I auction them off as fundraisers to support one of the many upcoming events (possibly The Disc Cellar Open, maybe a Women’s Global Event, maybe something else)
I suppose if people don’t like that idea, but want to buy some blanks and dye discs themselves and then sell or keep them, I could sell the blanks too. Anyway, let me know if you’re interested and we’ll see if this has legs.
Also, if you’re someone who likes buying dyed or unique discs and thinks you’d be interested in buying one of the discs, feel free to comment on that too. The idea really does fall down if at the end no one is interested in buying any of them.
