ALSO, IT being a pdga event its against the rules to be smoking a bowl while during the event so they could be dq'ed for such actions.

Was in my 1st PDGA sanctioned tourney 2 weeks ago and a me and a guy in our foursome both thre our discs into the same nasty, thorny bushes. I found mine easily, but we could not find his. We repeatedly asked the other two for help, but they flat out refused and went and sat down at the next tee and smoked a bowl. Now i'm pretty sure the answer would be to say something to the TD, but when do you do this? What is the penalty for this?
All players of the group must, upon request, assist in searching for
the disc for the full three minutes before the disc is declared lost.
Right, but don't they have to at least walk the perimeter of the bushes and look in?Chuck Kennedy wrote:Players are expected to help another player look. However, they aren't required to put themselves at risk in "unsafe" areas like steep slopes, pricker or razor bushes or poison ivy areas for examples. It's a common sense call whether a courtesy violation should be given for not helping to look.
It just struck me...now I know why I sucked at being a TD! Thanks, Frank.Frank Delicious wrote:and using good judgment.

Every time a crazy example to play DA is thrown out there it always boils down to interpreting the rules, evaluating the situation and using good judgment.
