You did read that, in this thread. It appears a TD can seek a waiver from the PDGA for ribbon on discs for a sanctioned tournament. I will admit, I have not looked up that rule myself, so don't quote me on it.

Another important part of my winter weather garments is a neck muffler. Works better than a scarf.
As a Texan I can 100% relate to this. Growing up, our "longhandles" were 50% polyester/50% cotton. Garbage! It took my first snow ski trip decades later to force me to learn how to dress for the cold. I found Patagonia's web site to be very helpful for teaching me what I was missing. Polypro and fleece are definitely your friend. Cotton is EVIL! Also as a wintertime motorcycle rider, neck gaiters ROCK!
