Pre Reg is updated.  Saturday is filling up fast, only about 28 spots left.  Sunday took a jump and nearly doubled in the last 2 days.  Remember if you are interested in getting the zip hoodie, you have to be registered by the end of tomorrow night.  I am placing the order on Monday morning and only ordering what is needed to fulfill the pre-reg's.  I would say at a minimum, PM me, email me or give me a call.

Thanks

Currently over 80 for the entire weekend.  I am going out there today to check out conditions and make sure everything is in place.  Hoodies have been ordered and Hot Stamp has been ordered. 

on Friday Feb 7th, you will be able to come to DDKC and pick up your players packs prior to the event if you want too.

Threw over the speed tracker on friday from 18s green and it tracked the disc. Possible side game who can throw the fastest.

It's Frostbreaker Week!!!  There is some snow coming during the week, which I'll do my best to make sure the pads are cleared.   I know there are some people waiting until the event, but please pre - register if you are planning on playing so I can get as much done as possible.   This will make for a quicker and smoother event.

So is there any chance of this tourney being postponed a week?  If not, what is the best method for finding a disc in foot deep snow? Can you use lights and do they help? I have never played in this type of weather and if anyone has any tips they would be appreciated. 
Title: Re: 2014 Frostbreaker
Post by: Bill the TD on February 05, 2014, 11:12:30 AM
We will need to ribbon our discs.  I mean taping a 3' length of ribbon to each disc so we can find them.  You tape it on fold the ribbon over and tape it again.  It is best to do it with warm discs and tape so you get good adhesion.
Title: Re: 2014 Frostbreaker
Post by: robm on February 05, 2014, 11:30:18 AM
for those that snow golf, ribbon is better than LED?
what kind of tape do you use for either?
typically I use packing tape. duct tape seems to sticky, eh?

The tournament is not getting postponed.  It is just snow and no reason to change the event date.  I have special permission from the PDGA to allow ribbon or LED lights during the event.

I was also wondering if duct tape would be a better choice. And if so, what is the best method for cleaning the adhesive off of the disks afterward?
Title: Re: 2014 Frostbreaker
Post by: Bill the TD on February 05, 2014, 01:10:18 PM
I remove sticky stuff with an orange oil.  It comes in a spray bottle and it will break up most adhesives.  The oil woin't hurt the disc but you will probably have to wash the disc to remove the oil.

Does everybody know the 90 degree rule?? Designate a single file str8 line down the fairway, used by ALL GOLFERS when you get to your disc, 90 degree towards it... allows many people to see disc enter slits

For those newer to playing in the snow during tournament, it is not much different.  If you are nervous about losing a disc, you can also have a spotter from the back of your card spot.  Although I don't mind the special circumstance for this event, I will say it is not normal.  All the years I ran events in WI, there was never any mention of ribbons and they play all winter with 2-3 times more snow on average. 

I am not criticizing anyone, I just want players to know it is not that rough playing in snow.  It will be colder and you might have a few more standstill shots, pay more attention to your shots as a group but play is the same.

 I prefer to play without because the few times I tried ribbons they only lasted 2 or 3 holes before the tape failed.

Played a few holes this afternoon in mostly virgin snow. If you watch your disc land and get a land mark they are not too hard to find. Hardest finds are the ones that enter and then slide under the snow. Found all of my drives today and only had to clear 4ft by 4ft one time due to slide. (NO WHITE DISKS)

How was the footing?  I messed my knee up last Friday bowling and still have some swelling from some loose cartlidge and not sure if I want to risk further injury this early into the season.

Using ribbons worked really well.  I did not notice them affecting the flight much, granted I am not very consistent yet.  Considering there will not be much pristine snow shortly into the round, gonna be a little difficult to see the entry points.  We didn't lose any discs but spent a bit of time looking for those that did not have ribbons on drives a few times.  Will sledders be an issue on the course?  There were a few on a couple other hills, but with the weekend and warmer temps, what is the normal way of dealing with that?  Probably won't be an issue.

Per Scott's request, I moved baskets #4 and #10 this morning. Those shots are pretty blind and hopefully this will reduce potentially lost discs.
