Tape a ribbon on your plastic and keep huckin'.

Played a fundraiser snow bowl last year, it had to be like 15-20 with 12" that fell the night before. Temp course. No pads. Just don't thaw out between rounds. I went to mcdonald's for lunch, and damn near froze solid on the second round. All the snow and ice that clung to me on the first round melted inside, and froze again, closer to the skin. I leaned about the advantages of cover-alls and synthetic underlayers that day.

Played 18 at Hiestand from Madison this afternoon. 22 degrees. "Real feel"?

11 degrees.

Also there is probably 1/2" of snow on the ground.

Child's play.

I play every weekend during the winter and haven't missed any rounds due to weather. I work outdoors so i'm acclimated and i believe that really helps. I'm also a firm believer in wearing quality outdoor clothing that's lightweight and warm. We played a round last winter with a wind chill of -10 below and 30 to 40 mph winds. The only downside to cold temps is the fact that older dx plastic will shatter and break.

West Bend? Name your time.

I played embarrassingly bad today at Hiestand.

And I'm not going to blame the weather...

wind is more of a deal breaker for me than temperature. last year, I slipped on ice and backhanded a tree. I will not be playing in slippery conditions this winter.

My first tournament, was a few weeks ago. It was the 1st of 10 tournaments in a Winter series, and oh boy did id rain, hail and kick up some wind. We set up a temporary course with portable baskets and it is only ten holes, so we played two rounds and took a lunch break and then played two more. Altogether, we played about 6.5 hrs of disc golf. I'd guess it rained for about half of it, but not real bad. But at 930 at signup it was FROZEN. Fingers getting stiff and numb and everything. WELCOME TO THE WINTER SERIES. Gotta love disc golf.
