Just as the first episode of our instructional video series Deep in the Game is about to surpass 20 000 views on Youtube, it’s time to roll out the second episode of the series. This episode concentrates on proper backhand driving technique and it’s hosted by 2009 Disc Golf World Champion Avery Jenkins.

The first episode of our instructional video series “Deep in the Game” was launched just a little over a week ago and it has already gathered over 16 000 views! A big thanks to all of you who have helped us spread the word. We believe information on how to improve your game should be free and accessible for everyone. For this reason, and with a little help from friends around the world, we’ve produced subtitles for the putting episode in English, German, Czech and Finnish. Just click the “cc” button when the video is playing to opt the subtitles best suited for you.
Subtitles not available in your language? Help us out!
We would like to offer subtitles in every language possible, to help the players that don’t speak English. If you think you could help us out by translating the subtitles from English to your language, please send us a message! We will provide you with time-coded text file with the English subtitles from which you can translate the subtitles to your language. If you think you’re up for the task and you master a language not yet featured on our subtitles list, contact Janne from our staff at janne.lahtinen[at]innovaeurope.com. In your message, please mention to which language you are willing to translate the subtitles.
Episode 1 contest still running
Last Friday we posted about a chance to win exclusive Deep in the Game discs. We’ve already received a whole bunch of answers, but especially since we are raffling 3 prize discs for those with the correct answer to our contest question, you still have a great chance of winning. All you need to do is to spot a Discmania sticker somewhere in the background and submit the correct time to us. Easy, isn’t it? Check out the full rules of competition here for your chance to win!
UPDATE: 3 More languages added!
Thanks to some very nice people across Europe, we’ve been able to add Norwegian (Thanks Tor!), Swedish (Thanks Hasse!) and Dutch (Thanks Mark!) subtitles to the first episode. Awesome!
If you are interested in helping us out and making these videos more understandable for people speaking some of the languages not yet on the list, contact us!
UPDATE: French & Estonian subtitles added!
A big thanks for Gwen and Rene for submitting the translations! View the episode here.
REINVENT YOUR GAME.
We’ve received a lot of questions asking whether the Deep in the Game -stamped discs are available for purchase somewhere. The answer at the moment is no, but there’s a chance to win some with a little luck and close attention.
What you can win?
For the putting episode, we are dealing out 3 bright yellow Discmania C-line FD’s. This model, the FD in C-line, is not yet available anywhere as a stock release, although you may have seen it as a fundraiser for the Russian Championships. Each disc will be sent to a randomly selected person, with the right answer to our question. There will be 3 separate winners, so you have a great chance of being one of them!
What do you need to do?
We’ve hidden a small Discmania sticker somewhere in this episode. 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 ;)
Free tip: Watching the episode in HD and full screen will help you spot it ;)
Rules of the competition
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 2 airs and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 2nd.
4. The prizes will be shipped to the addresses provided by the winners.
Happy hunting folks!
