What do you folks do on rainy days?

I had the urge to play so bad today but it was pouring. What do you folks do to get your fix on rainy days?

Yup, time to practice in the rain, because it always rains during tournaments.

I may have chenged my thinking - there was a day when I played Central Doubles or tournies come hell or high water, but recently I came to the realization that I play disc golf because it is fun. I do not make a living at it - I do it because it is fun, I'll never be anything more than a mediocre rag arm. As such, playing disc golf in the rain by and large is not fun. So, I think that I will not play in the rain anymore. Having come to this realization - I am not sure what I will do for a multi-day tourney and it raining on day one, or I am in the hunt for some some decent dough or plastic and it starts to rain, or if my abandoning will cause particular disruption to the group I am in - but I think that I am done playing in the rain.

Look at a radar map, then get in the car and drive somewhere it isn't raining. It's usually not more than two or three hours away.

I played yesterday at JPM. But then again it did not rain much near where I lived. But then again I like to play/practice in rain because in a tourney if its raining-play continues. If the weather really sucks I might set up my mini basket in the house and play a variety of different holes with minis.

Suggestion: put your practice basket in the largest open space your house and play a putting game. If the missus doesn't like you putting your dirty basket on the carpet, buy a mini basket and play with your minis. And it's fun for the kids too!
