Have one more tournament to play in a few weeks, then, it's back to my 150 class bag full of DX and G-star.

Been doing that the last few years. in late April/May, I'll break out my regular bag.

How many of you guys take a real offseason? I usually have some sort of tournament almost every month even in the winter and only take a break if I have an injury.

Of course this is coming from a GA native who has only played in the snow 7-8 times(MN/WI while traveling). It can get cold here but playing in the 40s isn’t bad if it’s dry.

I have played a few rounds up your way when it was very cold and didnt hate it. You have to modify your throw a bit but its still a good time.

This will be my 5th winter playing DG and it's honestly been pretty easy to find decent weather to play most weeks. Occasionally the cold will settle in for a couple weeks but it's rare. Yay global warming??

Somewhere around freezing and I'm out and I don't change my bag much.

Same here but also as long as the snow isn't above my knees. Then it's just miserable.

Take a season off? Or the organized season pretty much ends?

Around here, anything serious ends in late October. Besides one weekend league that plays every week and a few fund raiser winter events (which are pretty much outdoor drunk fests), the courses around me are for the most part vacant.

A couple of friends and I play a local pitch and putt and make an ace-run safari layout, or play putter only rounds, but for the most part, I play a lot of solo golf in the off season. It's a good time to work on things, or just enjoy some quiet throwing time.

I usually put the discs away for a bit in the winter and focus on fitness. I find my form changes too much because of slick teepads in the winter. Im better off just not playing. If I lived somewhere warm then there would be no offseason.

Between lost daylight and skiing every weekend I rarely golf after thanksgiving/before daylight savings comes back. So while I swap a large portion of my bag out it isnt for exactly cold weather but rather disc color during fall and late winter/early spring.

With fall foliage and grasses dying I swap any red, yellow, or orange out for dayglo or pink. I will switch my KC Aviars to black and have gone with DX Aviar Drivers from time to time as my one change for grip purposes. As was mentioned above, its also a good opportunity to season some newer discs that may get more full time play during summer months. Never hurts to have more available for the various cycles.

Weve already had a couple light snows and really we could get snowed on where we play almost any month outside of maybe July and August. We got some sideways sleet during the fishing net frisbee game at my league finale just last Saturday.
