I think the coldest I've played in was -10 F (not wind chill). Bearable in 3+ layers, if it's sunny and the wind isn't too bad. Just make sure your hand isn't wet when you reach into those metal chains or basket to grab your disc.

Shoot...it's forecasted to be 21 for a high here tomorrow afternoon, and lots of players are asking each other where they're playing, since it'll be a "heat wave."

A friend of mine played at an Ice Bowl in St. Cloud, MN several years ago, where I think it was -12 to -15 F (not wind chill). Threw a drive that hit a tree, and his disc split in half. Now THAT'S cold.

First PDGA event I ever played in, temp was 4 degrees at tee off. High got up to 9. Cold doesn't really bother me. It's the wind and snow that gets me.

If anyone is out to set a personal best for coldest round ever, well, here's your opportunity to see how insane you really are.

Yeah, think I'll go down to Florida today so I can brag about playing in 80 degree winter weather.

Nah, it'll probably rain.

As I've often posted, a calm sunny day in the teens is a gift.
