I normally do both days and the overnight marathon, but I just could not get myself excited about playing all night this year. The sub-zero windchills this week definitely made that decision easier. I have the clothes for it; I spent a fortune last year making sure that I could stay warm while still being able to throw.

Year Two at this school has been a tough one teaching because I can no longer say I was just trying to survive the school year. Now I have to show that students are improving within my program. A lot of late nights, which means that if I can get my five hours of sleep instead of playing disc golf all night in sub-zero temps, this time I have to unfortunately pick the sleep.

I am going to play Saturday, likely early in the morning so I do not have to wait on the back-up Hole 2.

Not having time to read that whole deal and or do more investigative reporting, how much are they going to change Fort Snelling?

Honestly, I really like it the way it is outside of that Par 2. I do not even complain about Hole 14 despite not having a forehand.

I thought they were pulling the DG course. Or was that just for the season? Made it sound like a permanent thing..

Which courses in the Cities are best for winter discing?

Hills/ice are mostly no problem as we have plenty up north here.

Oakwood looked pretty good today with the tees cleared and not really iced up anywhere. Acorn is currently pretty tough to get around with ice trails everywhere and only some pads cleared.

Fort Snelling and Wirth Par 3 are just closed for the winter. There is no reason to think either one will not open in spring.

As for the trees, I saw which ones were marked for removal, and most were not in play much.

One difference will be that the whole row along the airport fence is going away, so maybe more discs will be donated to the TSA.

I'll be going out in spring to see if the removal of some of the trees caused a need to change the design.

Weekend competition in twin cities

Is there many non sanctioned tourneys or leagues on the weekends? Or is pdga events the best bet for weekend competition?

Thanks
