Default Winter Autoduelling

On Christmas Eve Day, I have been thinking of Steel on Ice: Winter Autoduelling in ADQ 5/3. I realized that mini-supplement did not include an important item: A Snow-Making Machine commonly found in skiing areas. A Snow-Making Machine would quickly create road hazards and targeting modifiers for snow. :o)

The former CAADA chapter AVRO had some useful items for winter autoduelling on its Web site.

Issue 3 of High Velocity Duelling (HVD) Magazine was an issue dedicated to Antarctica, and included special rules for operating on that frozen continent, including equipment to protect vehicles against the extreme cold of Antarctica.

NOVA ran quite a few "snow" events; Snow Tires were very popular, even in summer; they neutralized the vaunted "ice/oil combo" quite nicely. (We won't get started on the fact that Ice and Oil *don't* combine like that.... >:) )

Ice Droppers were bad enough; fortunately, no one ever developed an Ice Grenade, or Ice rounds for the Streamers. I think we had quite enough...

...ICE-CAPADES.

Growing up in North Dakota, simulating icy driving conditions was the *last* thing we wanted! Our battles were always in clear, sunny 72 degree weather!
