Because the Plaid Jacket Open is a tournament we must respect and obey the rules of Disc Golf more closely than a casual round. Over the next five days I'll place a few rules which need to be re-stated.

The Plaid Jacket Open will follow PDGA rules, if you have time please have a quick read.

Foot Fouls

This is a common violation which we all see due to the condition of the tee pad or a slight better view if we step a couple feet to the side. During a tournament this is strictly illegeal and ask everyone to becareful during the tourney. The condition of many tee pads are poor and will be fixed or the tee pad moved slightly to deal with this problem.

You have to be planted BEHIND the board in a box extending 3 m back when releasing the disc. If a violation occurs and is called by a member of the playing group and a 2nd person in the playing group concurs, then three things happen. 1) the throw is disallowed, and a re-throw must be made. 2) the player is issued a stance warning, 3) the re-throw cannot be made with the same disc. Should a 2nd such violation occur the same conditions as above apply as well as a ONE stroke penalty.

Mulligan - Re-throw

Pretty basic rule, during tournament play there are no re-throws. If you make a very poor throw then you must play it where it lies. If a child or dog distracts you while you are throwing you can not re-throw.

It is also courtesy not to make distracting noises (dropped water bottle, conversation, etc) while someone in your group is throwing.

Playing in order

Part of Disc Golf is patience and being able to throw under less than perfect conditions. All players must wait for their turn.

RULE: 801.02 ORDER OF PLAY
B. Teeing order on all subsequent tees is determined by the scores on the previous hole, with the lowest score throwing first, and so on. If the previous hole was a tie, the scores are to be counted back until the order is resolved.

C. After all the players in the group have teed off, the player farthest from the hole, (the away player), throws first.

D. During tournament play, no group may play through the group ahead unless the group ahead is required to stand aside in accordance with the rules or as directed by an official.

E. Throwing out of turn shall be considered a courtesy violation. See 801.01F

How about a little clarification on out of bounds. Is anything on the other side of the cycling path (or road, or what have you) out of bounds, or does the disc have to be resting (completely)on the path?

Any path that you do not have to throw over is deamed a boundary line. You cross it, you are out of bounds and you take the next throw from where it left bounds. (not from where it landed)

Man made objects (such as that path behind 16 that ends abruptly) are OB if you land on them.

A. A disc shall be considered out-of-bounds only when it comes to rest and it is clearly and completely surrounded by the out-of-bounds area. A disc thrown in water shall be deemed to be at rest once it is floating or is moving only by the action of the water or the wind on the water. See section 803.02 E. The out-of-bounds line itself is considered in-bounds.

B. A player whose disc is considered out-of-bounds shall receive one penalty throw. The player shall mark his or her lie up to one meter away from, and perpendicular to, the point where the disc last crossed into out-o-bounds, as determined by a majority of the group or an official. This holds true even if the direction takes the lie closer to the hole. If the disc is also considered above two meters, the penalty for a disc above two meters shall not be assessed in addition to the penalty for out-of-bounds.

C. The Rule of Verticality- The out-of-bounds line represents a vertical plane. Where a player's lie is marked from a particular point within one meter of the out-of-bounds line pursuant to the rules, the one-meter relief may be taken from the particular point upward or downward along the vertical plane.

D. If the in-bounds status of a disc is uncertain, either a majority of the group or an official shall make the determination. If the thrower moves the disc before a determination has been made, the disc shall be considered out-of-bounds, and he or she shall proceed in accordance with 803.08 B. If a player other than the thrower moves the disc before a determination has been made, the disc shall be considered in-bounds, and play for the thrower and the mover of the disc shall proceed under the rules of interference, 803.06 B and C.

Huck you Chuck. The only reason that I foot foul 'occasionally' is the poor condition of the tees. That is different now. So we shall see who foot fouls. Cheat to win...chowder

I direct your attention to 804.5 a(3)
Take that!

(1) Unsportsmanlike conduct, such as; loud cursing, throwing things in anger (other than discs in play), or overt rudeness to anyone present.
(2) Willful and overt destruction or abuse of plant life, course hardware, or any other property considered part of the disc golf course or the park.
(3) Cheating: a willful attempt to circumvent the rules of play.
(4) Activities which are in violation of the law or park regulation or disc golf course rule, including the illegal consumption of drugs or alcohol. Directors are granted the discretion to disqualify a player based on the severity of the offending conduct. An official warning of disqualification may be issued by a director where appropriate.
