Still waiting for the "None of the above" option. Got a foot of fresh snow outside, heading out to a tourny in an hour!

Try to stay away from negative wind chills, other than that its fair game. Its practically spring time in Wisconsin, 8 degrees and about a half foot of snow on the ground.

My limit is: If I can see my breath, I'm not playing.

It's all about the wind chill. If the wind chill is below about 15 I'l be staying inside. More than 3 inches of snow will keep me inside as well.

If my pee freezes into little ice pellets before it hits the ground, I'm out.

I'll play in just about any conditions. We got a night game going on friday night in the middle of a snowstorm in like 10* weather at about 1:30am.

It was a lot of fun. And yes, Alcohol was involved.

I voted ice. Slipped and full on backhanded a tree this winter. Will not play when it is slick, but,I do not mind wind and cold.

I guess the only real deterrent for most of us would be thunderstorms.

Ideally for me it would be upper 60s, low 70s, a very light but warm zephyr that always seemed to be coming off my left shoulder. Low humidity and partly cloudy.

Were you not challenged to use many many shots in your arsenal and discs from your bag? Did you not leave thoroughly beat down physically and mentally, replaying the bad throws and how you could have done better? Aside from the grass issues this summer, the rough is indeed rough. Tailings is another course emphasizing accuracy and control, but brings in the need for some power as well - it scores out with a much higher SSA per 18 than Winter Park, Rollin Ridge, and others.

If you want well groomed playing conditions, come play the Tailings event in June on Saturday the 29th. It will be the 4th annual tournament there. Non-PDGA, but part of a "Disc da U.P." series of events we will be hosting this season to commemorate all our new openings and changes. Look for 18 new holes in Marquette, 36 new holes in Escanaba, 18 new holes in Republic, and more and more expansion, improvement, and new courses, especially in and around the Marquette area.
