Just so you all now, the weekend doubles will be played at stable run this sunday at noon. The entry fee is a disc of champion or better plastic. All players will receive a disc for payout.

Anyone know how deep the snow is? Just want to know if I should drag my cart around, or bite the bag bullet.

I will give you an update tonight on the snow depth. As of now the cart should stay home but that could all change by the end of the day!!! :)

Skis are what I need really. Traction would help on my feet though. :)

Yes it will!!! I don't think the cart will be any fun if you bring it. The course is still 95% snow covered. The problem is that the snow has been trampled from play during these last few nice days and now no fairways are smooth. Expect random direction skips and slick conditions on the fairways. If the pads weren't clean I would wear Yak Trax. If you don't mind wearing them on the concrete, then I would recommend bringing them. And if you do bring the bag, you should only need a few discs if we are playing the short course.

The snow that remains is very thin and sparce in areas. Only two spots that I think can eat a disc and its hard to get there. With the cold temps, nothing will be able to dig in. You may be able to get the cart around Irban?!

Yeah, usually this is the best time to play on snow. Cold enough that you don't sink in to whatever snow is left. The only thing is ice, but you have to have some challenge.
