In my previous post I mentioned two premiere edition bags The Mystery Ranch Golf Mahal, and the Grip Equipment bag. In this post I will showcase the Mystery Ranch Golf Mahal henceforth the Mahal. I had owned the Grip eq Bag since there first iteration through to the latest. I enjoyed the Grip bag however being a touch older I found that my back was begging for more support. In my research I came across the Mahal and promptly traded my Grip eq bag for a grey and black Mahal and have not looked back. FOR ME the leap in comfort, space, and options convinced me that indeed the Mahal is a quantum leap over anything else I had experienced or seen on the market and it should be at 300$.
The Golf Mahal will turn heads when people see it for the first time. You can carry as little as 15 discs or as many as 35-40. In the pictures the Mahal looks huge and with the side pockets extended it is, however you can compress the side pockets and then the Mahal is not that much larger than the grip eq bag and the like.
Next I will cover the Grip eq bag but in the meantime let me know your thoughts on the Mahal or any other bag for that matter. If you want to check out the Mahal in person grab me next time we are on the course together.
There has been an explosion in cool new designs in back pack style bags. Arguably Grip Equipment started the revolution and wider interest in back pack style bags and Mystery Ranch‘s Golf Mahal as the longstanding pinnacle in craftsmanship and quality which other backpack style bags aspire to. However not everybody wants to spend 300$ on a bag or do they need the capacity of these higher end bags. I next little while I will post some cool new bags for members to consider. The first in the series for your consideration is the upper park designs bags. Let me know what you think do you think backpack style bags will eventually take over from the strap style bags?
Every player ends the year saying to his friends ”next year I am going to…”. This year I am going to give you some offseason tips to help you end that sentence with something that you will be able to uphold. Just like most of you I was once still developing my game in the offseasons and most years I made great improvement. The three areas I will concentrate on are technique, physical training, and overall self improvement. I can promise that if you follow these offseason tips you will see improvement on and off the course.
Registration for the last Duck Golf event of the 2013/14 season, to be held at the Jericho Disc Golf course, opens at 8:00AM, Sunday, February 2. Registration closes Saturday night at midnight, February 22. Join us for the season finale and trophy presentations. Note that this will be a B-tier event for all Open Divisions.
Woman’s Global Event - Rocks the Knox
May 10, 2014
I am really excited to be bringing this Women's Global event to you, the women of this amazing sport! There needs to be more of us out on the course and this event is going to help make that happen!
The PDGA Women's Committee has been working tirelessly to create this event and work out the logistics so TD's like myself can make it possible for women around the world! The inaugural Women's Global Event in 2012 was a huge success and made history as the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf. 41 registered tournaments, reaching across 24 states and 4 countries (including United States, Norway, Finland and Australia) resulted in a turnout of 636 women in 15 different PDGA divisions.
Lets be part of the history of 2014's event and get Canada included as one of the participating countries!
I have chosen the Knox Mountain course in Kelowna BC because its a shorter course and offers all skills levels the opportunity to enjoy the game and feel good about their round. All the information you need can be found under Tournament Information. Please be sure to read the Registration page before registering. There is important information in there regarding how to obtain your players pack!
I look forward to making history and having fun with all of you!
Yours in Disc Golf,

The Doomsday stats have been upated one last time before the season closer. Some spots in some divisions look sealed up but in other divisions it's all coming down to one last day of golf for some people.... this could get interesting.
It's great that it's been such a tight year, with so many different people winning in all of the divisions.
Thanks for coming out everyone and we'll see you on Sunday in Rose Hill and beyond for next season.
The stats for the year have been updated ahead of tomorrow's event in Vernon at Fallow Ridge.
Thank you to everyone who registered for the 2013 Canadian National Disc Golf Championships. We have reached our capacity and can not accept any more players. This is an amazing accomplishment and this will go down as Canada's largest disc golf tournament ever!
The itinerary has also been posted here . Please read it for all of the information on players meetings and which courses you are playing and when. Also listed will be start times for disc clinics with some of the sport's best players.
After a very successful first Doomsday at Rose Hill with a total of 50 players we are getting ready for the second event this weekend. The results of that first event and information on the Doomsday tour can be found here . The second event will be in Pritchard on a private course owned by long time club member and friend Randy. This is a fun small technical course that will test every aspect of your game. If you do not know how to get to the course be at the general store on the highway in Pritchard by 9am on Sunday and we will all travel up together.
Remember that if you are not a current club member or BCDSS member with another club that you will need to bring 10$ to join the club before you can play.
The time of year has come for disc golf clubs around the world to hold their annual Ice Bowl charity tournaments. All money raised from pledges and entrance fees will go to a local charity. There is also a food drive for the local food bank. Since the 1990s when Ice Bowls started happening around the world disc gofers have raised 1.6 million for charities and over 400,000 pounds of food!!
The KDGC Ice Bowl is a non competitive fun event for everyone regardless of skill level. It will held at the Rose Hill Disc Golf course on Feb 10th with a start time of 10am. Be there a little early and make sure to bring a food bank donation with you. Entrance fee will be 10$ and as stated ALL proceeds will go to charity.
If you're a seasoned disc golfer you know what finding discs in the snow can be like , and for those that haven't been golfing lately (shame on you!) there is a LOT of snow on the course. So be smart about it and ribbon up if you don't want to lose plastic.
If you don't disc golf and you'd like to take part drop us an email through the contact link on the web site and we'll see if we can't hook you up with some plastic to throw.
Hope to see you all out there.

As you've no doubt noticed we've got a new website design. The main reason for this was to have a great mobile friendly website for the vast majority of people who visit on their phones and tablets.
In the process we've lost a few new features that were recently added but I'll be looking at trying to restore some of those in future updates.
Are you golfing this Sunday ? The correct answer is yes.
If there is anything you would like to see on the site leave a comment here or use the contact link above and if it's a good idea we'll see if it's possible.
