The Disc Cellar is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a Trilogy Challenge event at Mundy Park on Saturday, 08 Oct 2016 with player pack distribution starting at 10am, and the event starting approximately 10:30am.
For your $35 entry fee you get 3 discs (putter, midrange and driver) and an opportunity to take home one of the big prizes. Division prizes will depend on the normal divisions of those who register, but we’re planning for: Top Overall (Advanced/Pro), Top Amateur (Intermediate or below), Top Woman, Top Beginner (self-identified) and Top Junior. Additional prizes may be awarded.
We will be playing 18 holes (2 x recreational course) and then the top 4 players in each division will play another 9 holes. There will be an instructional clinic after the event for anyone who wants to stay, and The Disc Cellar will be open after the clinic for anyone who wants to browse our full selection. Register through our online store. Even if you can’t attend, you can purchase a player’s package for later pick-up or to have shipped to you.
Day of registration will be available if we still have packages left, but will cost $40.
If you’ve been sitting on the fence, today is your last day to get off it and register for the Ogopogo Open this weekend in Kelowna. There’s lots of people going so you can probably carpool if that’s a deciding factor. On site camping is free, so you can keep the travel costs down.
We haven’t really been promoting this yet, but essentially our full disc inventory is now on-line in our store. Bags, hats, shirts, minis, stickers, etc… are not there yet, and the details and photos for the discs may be sparse, but the inventory should be accurate. Here’s where we are:
Innova inventory: incomplete (new order arrived yesterday, approximately 100 discs left to enter, and custom stamp inventory needs to be re-verified and completed; big restocking of Bosses, Destroyers, KC Rocs, Pigs and more)
If you’re going to be in Kelowna, make your special requests today/tonight because the full inventory can’t travel with me. There may still be the odd bug in the system, but given there’s about 2,000 discs in the system hopefully you won’t encounter one. Happy shopping.
If you were listening at one of the player’s meetings you know that there was a mix-up which meant that the player’s package items were not here in time for the tournament. The silver lining there is that it meant that you got to pick your size and colour instead of having a random assortment of shirts to pick from.
Here’s the sizes and colours that I have on record. I’ll be submitting the list on Wednesday night, so if you want to make a correction, or don’t have yours listed please comment on this post before Wednesday evening.

Men’s colours are:
Women’s colours are:
The shirts are coming from Dynamic Discs, so if you have any requests for their products I can bring those in at the same time.
I’ll be placing an order on Monday for a couple of Latitude 64 DG Luxury Backpacks that a few lucky disc golfers are getting as late Christmas presents to themselves. If you want in on the action let me know ASAP.
The E2 (second edition) has the following enhancements over the first model:
more padding in the straps
larger drink holder with adjustable strap
larger zippers on the side pockets
redesigned larger opening on the top pocket
It is now available in the original Black/White, Camo (dessert), Silver and Orange. Pricing will stay the same at $245 including tax for now, but may change in the future if the Canadian dollar stays this low.
These bags come from Dynamic Discs for the time being (starting in another month or two they will be available through the Canadian distribution channel). That does however mean that I’ll also be restocking other Dynamic Disc products at the same time, like the Soldier Cooler bag. So if you need a DD Bag or disc, let me know and I’ll bring it in for you. Stuff should be here the week following the Victoria Duck Golf.
I haven’t been doing a good job of posting about new releases lately, despite claiming that I would. Here’s some of the most recent Trilogy (Latitude 64, Westside, and Dynamic Discs) releases:
Westside VIP Harp
Existing disc, new plastic. “The Harp is Westside’s most reliable approach disc. Designed to withstand any type of conditions. It will hold in the wind. For professional players this could be the only approach disc they will need to carry as it can hold anyone’s arm speed and still hyzer. For slower arms it will be your most overstable approach disc.”
Westside BT Hard Shield
“Westside’s newest putter on the market, the Shield, is the next step up from the Swan. Designed with a tacky grip in the BT plastics, the Shield is a little thicker and has a small bead on the rim. It holds a stable line when throwing as an approach and a straight line into the chains while putting. Now available in BT Hard Plastic.
Latitude 64 Gold Hex Missilens
“The Missilen from Latitude 64 has been a huge hit with players and they are now releasing it in Gold Hex plastic. Along with the stock stamp (left), they are also releasing two limited edition stamps (middle and right). These two stamps are limited run.”
Now Three more from Dynamic Discs
“The Witness is a great fairway driver for players with lower arm speed. An understable flight path and tremendous glide make the Witness an excellent choice for players looking to gain distance without sacrificing accuracy. Bigger arms can use the Witness for controlled anhyzers, hyzerflips, and rollers.”
“The Enforcer is a predictable, overstable distance driver. The Enforcer will fight the wind with the same speed and similar glide of the Trespass. The Enforcer will be a perfect overstable complement to the Trespass.”
Limited Edition Dymax Fuzion Freedom
“Our 14th disc and final new release of 2014 is here. Introducing the Dynamic Discs Freedom. The Freedom is a 14 speed understable disc in the vein of the King or Havoc and the fastest that Dynamic Discs has ever produced. For the big arm throwers, this disc will go a long way on an anhyzer line with a predictable fade back to stable at the end giving easy distance on hyzer flip shots. For those with lower arm speeds, the Freedom is the long distance drive that you have been wanting and asking us to produce. This disc will sail past that spot in the fairway where you normally land. It will take your usual throw and translate it into uncommon distances. Free your shackled expectations of the distances that you can achieve!
Dynamic Discs is releasing a limited run of DyeMax Fuzion Freedoms. Only 999 of these were manufactured. Each Freedom is individually numbered on the bottom with laser engraving.”
These are all new models and not currently in stock, but should mostly be available by special order.
