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.

HA!!!

 I prefer to play without because the few times I tried ribbons they only lasted 2 or 3 holes before the tape failed.
Throw farther, not harder...

Thanks for the info, I will be able to try the ribbon thing out Friday.   Looks like the forecast is looking up for Saturday, showing around 30 degrees and Sunday 18.

Weather is looking better for this weekend.  Pads are clear and I am picking up the Players Packs today.  If you are planning on playing, please pre register to help me move the event along faster.

Players Packs can be picked up at Dynamic Discs Kansas City on Friday (tomorrow).

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.

Footing was good. Pads were clean. There are a few spots where there might be ice under the snow - especially on sidewalks/paths/roads.
