First few posts pretty much nailed all the right things. I'll just reinforce the thought of extra clothing, particularly socks and shoes and a shirt... just leave them in your car and change into them between rounds if you need to. I hate playing with wet feet.

Waterproof, reusable scorecard.
It can hang outside your bag and the pencil lead will not run off.

If you bring an umbrella don't make it a small one. Bring a big one that will cover your bag well when you set it all down. If it's big enough you can work under it while it is down there to take score or dry your discs and hands. I just did this all day Sunday.

Chances are they have to use the score card provided by the TD.

Climbers chalk or Birdie Bag to get the hands free of all moisture. Besides that, everything else that has been mentioned on here is spot on.

You could likely put it on the one waterproof card and then transfer it.

Yep. Everybody on here is right on. I personally use a pitchers's rosin bag vs the birdie bag (theyre about $2 at your local sporting goods store)..

Also I recommend bringing a old trashed towel to throw off of if the tees are particularly muddy or slippery. You can lay it out across the tee pad, throw from a stand still and pick it up after your throw. Your call if you want to share it with your card, but a little extra advantage never hurt

Waterproof socks are awesome. They just stay in my car all the time.

Ha! Great advice and the only thing guaranteed to keep you 100% warm and dry.

But, sometimes you just want to man up. In addition to what others have said, I use chamois towels and scale down my disc selection to a few in soft rubbery or Pro plastic. Even if it is actively raining I can dry these enough - they're damp, not dry - with the chamois to still get grip I can trust.

If you wear glasses (I do), you gotta have the hat with a brim, and enough dry towels to keep them relatively free of water drops. Even harder than throwing wet discs is scoring when you can't see the basket.

Good luck!

I've found the best towel for drying a disc is a bath towel.
