Not to bad, is't very playable. I'm headed over on Thursday. Will do some work with Jed the parks and rec guy. Then we will play a round. I will give you a report after then.

I shot a 4 under, on the original 12 holes, today while checking out the conditions. It was a great day, no wind, sunny, and about 10 degrees. I was plenty warm with some Under Armour as a base layer, a fleece and the shell of my skiing jacket.

The snow is about 31/2 inches deep with a crusty top, which kept disc from burrowing (I could throw all my disc, mostly white), and also made for some interesting skips and slides on this very hilly course. I had one hyzer shot land 10 ft to the right of the pin, would be parked on a normal day, and it skipped 50 ft, then slide down the hill another 80 ft. Overall one of the most enjoyable rounds I have had at Franklin park.

The weather looks like it should warm up, but I trust weather men about as far as I throw my drives, not very far.

On Friday Night Belle Plaine got around 10 inches of rain. The rain caused a flash flood at Franklin Park.

The rest of the course is fine, the basket and collar will be reinstalled before the Franklin Fling (Plug; PDGA C-tier, Sunday July 8th)

Better contact FEMA. You may be able to score a trailer or two, I heard they have a few left over.

I would say whacker rules, but as of today the pin is back were it belongs. Sorry to disappoint you Greco. Does this mean you are coming?
