Here's a suggestion that sounds odd but which works WONDERS. I learned this a few years back when it was january and the local store was selling off Xball Gold for $20 a case...I guess people were buying it and the shells were so thin it was breaking and they were then returning it.

Anyway, do this:
1. Get a case of (your choice) brand paint in advance
2. On the day you play, open the bags and leave them on the counter while you take a hot shower...really get that steam going
3. When done, run your hand under warm water, shake it once or twice, then swirl it through each open bag
4. Close the bags back up with a zip tie
5. Nestle the bags in your field bag with a Nalgene bottle full of warm water

Using this technique I have shot the thinnest tournament grade paint in sub-freezing weather with ZERO breaks. This is SO much fun when everyone else is just shooting thick shelled paint and cannot get breaks just bounces...

Seriously, TRY IT!

You should also not buy Polar Ice for a cocker based pump. I can shoot premium in 30 degree weather out of my pump. YMMV.
Yes. I have seen more sh*tty polar ice and other "Winter shell" paint than any other kind. I think it's because fields or maybe distributors hold it over year-to-year when they don't sell it all.

More often than not, it's out of round and even when fresh, it rarely breaks.

My suggestion is to have everyone come down to Miami for a pump meet.

I might be in the area if I could get a freaking apartment to accept my application...

Back to the OP.
You really shouldn't do anything else because it's cold. Just go play.
