Got into the 80s here in Ohio today. I put in four hours before work.

And we're supposed to get snow flurries Monday and Tuesday.

Crappy weather delaying my course work of super heavy bench build and installation. Admittedly I have been using the sporadic and infrequent nice days for play.

However, winter has had a flurry of activity locally. Walnut Ridge in Johnston (solidly a 4.5, Corps of Engineers park) opened gates a month earlier than normal. Ewing in Des Moines (big arm bomber through a hilly aging arboretum) getting big love from the city doing a needed cull of aged out and damaged trees that will see benefits for a long time. New fancy baskets at Big Creek in Polk City, Lewis in Colfax, and Grandview in Des Moines transplanting lots of baskets into the community. Confident a new course announcement coming at any time.

So, not so bad a winter really.

I played big Creek for first time in about 20 years (which then was one of my first and worst experiences of disc golf 100 degrees and lots of tall brush that I was in on every hole...) This time I really enjoyed it. In addition to the new baskets, has a lot of work been done to knock down the brush since then or is it a matter of playing in winter vs summer?

Is your confidence about newcourse announcement rooted in insider knowledge?

Just shoveled nine inches from my driveway during a break in the storm. It's supposed to pick up again overnight for another 4"-6". First tourney is less than two weeks away, I hope it warms up soon.
