He's serious, as are the conditions forecasted for Saturday.

I personally support his and anyone else's decision to withdraw if it's outside of his/her comfort zone.

But alas the show must go on.

Discs have been purchased, so if you aren't going to brave (and I use that term very loosely) the coldest conditions ever in Ottawa during February month, maybe you might need a new Timberwolf or Polar Bear? All the proceeds go the charity.

As long as you have no exposed skin and lots of layers you will be toasty warm all day. I remember a past icebowl where temperatures were this cold and it was a blast. At least the snow is not waist deep and we have a warm place to sit between rounds. If you are unable to play but still want to hang out, we need a photographer to document this craziness.

Again, I promise you will not regret bringing ski goggles, a sled for your bag, thermos of warm liquid and your warm smile for your card mates. I also recommend not bringing too many discs and grippers will save you strokes. Having an extra pair of gloves in your sled and heaters will also go a long way.

The cars on Blair road will wonder as they drive past in their heated comfort.

Minus 37 at tee off is what is forecasted with a 20km wind. No exposed skin people. This is not a preference thing.

Strap a thermometer to your bag for pictures if you have one. This WILL be interesting.

It's the windchill that matters on exposed skin. With no exposed skin it will be a walk in the park.
