Now that I am Grandmasters I generally use the age rule. If the temp is below my age I'm not likely to play. I have already broken the rule this year and played in the 40s but didn't enjoy it much.
where were you at today?.... your age was twice the temperature, and we had waterworks all to ourselves

I've played in near zero rounds with the wind chill, but prefer 20+ degrees.

I will play almost down to zero and even in a decent snow. The most important thing to do is wear an outer layer that breaks the wind. Then you need less inner layers. But they must be wicking material

Today it was 18 degrees and windy here ("Real Feel" was zero). I played 18 at Crystal Lake.

I was going to go play another 18 at the home course but I only played four holes before the wind gusts started to really piss me off. So I stopped playing and went to the bar instead.

I'll play in anything. Any temp, any precip, any time. Last winter I played in blizzards, light snowfalls, rain and -15 degrees.

If you prepare, you can play in anything.

That's why God created Christmas ribbon. I didn't lose one disc last winter.

Yep. Layering is key. I've played in some B. as in B. and S as in S. weather and been fine just layering smartly.

^^^^This.

Call me fair weather, I just say I gotta take advantage of the pow with my board and not my discs. However it would be fun to throw a disc down the hill and see if you could catch up to it on your board and snag it before it hits the ground...if that's even possible.

No bad weather, just bad gear.
