As most of our frequent readers have probably already noticed, the 2nd episode in our 5-episode series, Discmania Deep in the Game came out a little over a week ago. By this series we aim to provide tips and instructions for current and future Disc Golfers on how to Reinvent their game. An essential part in making these episodes available for all, is to provide them for free via YouTube but also providing them with proper subtitles to provide a real learning experience also for those who don’t speak English.
Thanks to some friends around Europe, we’ve been able to translate the captions of the first episode to English, Finnish, Czech, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, French, German and Estonian. The second episode is already available with English, Finnish, French, Norwegian and Estonian subtitles and a couple of languages are still in the process of getting translated. If you think you could spare a little time to help Disc Golfers in your country by making translations to your language, please let us know by dropping an email to janne.lahtinen[at]innovaeurope.com. All help is much appreciated!
Ep 2 contest still running
If you haven’t taken part in our sticker-spotting contest yet, now is a great time! All you need to do is to spot a Discmania sticker in Episode 2 and submit the info to us to make you eligible to win exclusive plastic. This one was a bit on the tricky side, so make sure you watch the episode with 720p quality and full screen to make your job easier. We also strongly recommend you read the full instructions here to avoid wrong answers.
Update: German & Dutch subs added!
The Backhand episode is now equipped also with German and Dutch subtitles. Thanks to Mark & Frank for submitting the translations!
As some of you already guessed, just like with the first episode, we’ve hidden a Discmania sticker somewhere in the Backhand episode too for you to spot. Spotting the sticker may just pay off well, since we’re once again dealing out sweet Deep in the Game -stamped discs to three lucky persons with the right answer to our competition question:
At which time is the Discmania sticker visible in the video?
(Extra points for those who also point out the location of the sticker)
For the Backhand episode we’ve reserved 3 exclusive first run C-line FD’s, one for each lucky winner. One of the three key points of the episode is featured on each disc, hand written by Avery Jenkins himself. As you may already know, these discs are not yet available as a “stock” release, so here’s a chance to grab yourself a sweet pre-release C-FD that is not available anywhere else.
All you need to do to make yourself eligible to win is to spot the sticker in the episode and submit us the time when the sticker is visible. All answers must be send as messages to our Deep in the Game facebook -page.
To participate in the contest, you must send us a facebook message via the Discmania Deep in the Game -facebook page. (Click to enlarge.)
Please note: The sticker is visible for a short time and it’s not necessarily easy to spot. There are logos similar to the sticker visible in the episode in the clothes of Jussi & Avery, but they’re not the one you should be looking for. Additionally there is a sticker on the lawn when the 3 keypoints of putting are shown in the episode, but the winning sticker is visible somewhere else on another timeframe. The one you should be looking for is much harder to spot than that ;)
1. Everyone with a facebook account are eligible to participate.
2. The three (3) winners for this episode will be randomly selected from the group of correct answers. All winners will be contacted personally (by a reply to the facebook-message), but we do reserve the right to publish the names of the winners.
3. The competition closes when Episode 3 airs and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 15th.
4. The prizes will be shipped to the addresses provided by the winners.
Once again, Happy hunting folks!
For the first episode of Deep in the Game -series we had a sticker spotting competition with some exclusive plastic as prizes. The contest is now over, so it’s time to announce the winners: Jenny H. C., Travis S. and Antti K. The winners have been contacted privately and the prize discs will be shipped their way once we have all the needed addresses.
So where was it?
We have to admit that the sticker was not too easy to spot. Despite this, we got just under 300 answers and about 80% of them were correct. The correct answer was of course 1:04-1:06 at the right hand corner of the LaMirada sign. See below:
Here's the correct answer. Click to enlarge.
Thanks for everyone who took submitted answers! Now go watch Episode 2 – Backhand (just released!) and work with your form!
