‘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.
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).
Illuminate your game with Prodigy Glow. Prodigy Glow is an intense glow blend, currently available in our 400 series plastic. Even on the darkest nights, you can still light up the course. Don’t get left in the dark!
Models available starting December 2nd, 2014. Pricing will be $20.00.
Also now available from Prodigy are their toques (although they don’t call them that):
Disc Golf doesn’t stop for winter and neither should you. We’ve designed these winter hats to keep you warm on the course. Available in two styles, these 100% acrylic hats will suit everyone.
The SKULL CAP has plenty of stretch for a great fit and shape retention. It is available in Black, Navy Blue, Light Blue, Pink and Gray.
The KNIT CAP features a 3-inch folding cuff for extra warmth over the ears, branded with the Prodigy logo. It is available in Black & White.
Both models of Winter Hats are One Size Fits Most, and will be $15.
Again, these are not necessarily currently in stock, but they can be acquired if you’re interested.
GStar Archon (released 10 Nov 2014)
“The Archon is a Speed 11 Distance Driver that blends the graceful long turn of the Katana with the smooth fade of the Wraith. It has been described as a longer Valkyrie. This is the disc for players looking to master their game and rule the course. Now available in gripalicious GStar, just in time for winter. Weights: 165-175g; Flight Numbers: 11/5/-2/2″
Hoodies & Long Sleeves
“Just in time for the chilly months, New Air Force Hoodies & Long Sleeve Tees will be arriving soon. The Hoodies will be offered in zip and no-zip because people are adamant about which is their favorite. We’ve partnered with RECOVER BRANDS to provide these super comfy garments made from 100% recycled materials. RECOVER apparel was a hit in the USDGC pro shop so we’ve decided to add them to our stock line. While we don’t have them in stock yet…”
LongSleeve Tee: S – XXL, Carbon, Grey, Forest, and Blue No-Zip Hoodie: S – XXL, Grey and Blue Full-Zip Hoodie: S – XXL, Carbon
“Our 2015 Calendars will be arriving in the next week or so. Make sure to get some for stocking stuffers and Christmas presents. Featuring 14 months of beautiful disc golf at destinations around the globe. December 2014 thru January 2016. Next year’s Majors and National Tour Events are pre-populated to help plan amazing disc golf memories.”
GStar in the Cold
“With winter already here in many parts of the country, it’s nice to have GStar available to players who don’t stop playing when they have to layer up. GStar performs well in a wide range of temperatures, but perhaps it is best appreciated when the mercury drops. GStar stays flexible at colder temps, and it still feels good in your hands when you can barely feel your fingers. Added grip can mean the difference between a miserable round and an exciting one. GStar has may options to get players throwing.
GStar Beast (retooled): 165-175g, 10/5/-2/2. “The Beast mold has been retooled to the original (’03) specs. GStar is the first model to utilize this retooled mold. New Beast production runs will use the retooled mold. DX, Driver Pro, Champion, and Star available in the former configuration while supplies last.
This one has all come together rather quickly, but there will shortly be a truck load of Gateway arriving, featuring 19 portables and 200 discs. The discs include all of the assorted varieties of putters that they currently make including Glow Wizards, Magic, Voodoo and Warlocks.
The shipment is scheduled to arrive just before the DCO, but as with all cross-border shipping dates they are approximate.
Assuming that it all does come together in time, you will be using the new portables during the DCO, and I think you’ll like them!
