That was pretty funny.

I like the muff for disc golf...especially because it has a Bears logo!

I thought that it might get in the way, but that is not the case.

It's not that hard if you see where it first hits the snow. They only travel under the snow when there is a layer of ice under a fresh snowfall. Even then, it's not that hard.

In fact, I have lost more discs in the summer months than winter.

Doesn't snow all that much here, it's just cold and hella windy. When it does snow it's normally just enough to mess up the roads and close school for a day or 2.
I'll be out in shorts, wool socks, maybe a layer or 2, a hoodie, and maybe a pack of hand warmers. God I hate pants...

I bought a Champion mock turtle neck and hope to not have to use it for a few more weeks!

I am getting my thicker short sleeved shirts out for our terrible 50 degree NC winters.

But seriously a good pear of mittens that you can throw some hand warmers in are PERFECT... I wear those 1 size fits all gloves with the thumb, pointer, and middle fingers cut off...the only fingers I really use to hold a disc in any throwing style.

In New England, we gear up by purchasing a bottle of whiskey and only carrying a few slower, brightly colored discs. We also wrestle with grizzly bears to keep warm and grow our beards long and thick enough that we can brush off the teepads with them. To avoid the problem of losing discs in snow, we either throw them right in the basket or, if the hole is 800ft or more (ie not aceable), we simply put so much spin on the disc that the friction of the air heats it up and it melts all the snow within a 10ft radius when it lands. If entering a tourney, it's customary to get Chuck Norris as a caddy. He's usually willing because he likes learning how to be a badass by watching how it's done.

What's a little bit of snow and cold weather to those of us born and raised in it? Sledding, pond hockey, bumper hitching, etc... all kinds of fun things to do when it gets pretty outside. Cant imagine a little bit of disc golf will be any different.

Northface boots, longjohns and lightweight ski pants/overalls. A base layer, turtle neck, wind breaker and vest. Fleece hat and gloves and a pint of whiskey and we are ready for anything. Bring it on old man winter, been there and done that.

Time to bust out some new plastic, I usually try to cycle some new stuff into the bag. More DX, less KC, less CE, brighter colors, might even try some discraft this year.
