    So it's kosher, according to PDGA rules, to smoke tobacco during rounds? I'll just add that to the list of reasons I don't play in tournaments...

      It could be flagged as a courtesy violation. Warning, then stroke.

        I take issue with the claim that this happens so much more in Washington than in Oregon. I'm not going to deny that it happens here, but it's hardly an "every round" kind of thing, at least in the rounds I've played. I saw it a lot more when I played in Int., but since I moved up to Adv., I rarely see it at all. And the one big tourney I played in OR, people were openly sparking up right at tourney central!

          Oh...NO...regardless of an individuals "status".
          It is still ILLEGAL to consume in a "Drug Free Zone" which includes ALL Schools & Parks. So anyone who attempted to use that excuse would just be shot down in the end.

            This is only if the smoke bothers you. They can smoke cigs if they make sure to stand downwind of anyone who requests that they do so. If they still continue to bother you with their smoking, then the warnings/strokes occur.

            According to the competition manual, you are only prohibited from these activities from the 2-minute warning to when the scorecard is turned in. Were you offended by people drinking liquor at tourney central between rounds too or just the 'evil weed'?

              I knew about the schools but didn't know that parks were included in that law. Is that just State Parks? County Parks? Amusement Parks? Can you show me where that can be found?

              Do the harsher penalties for "within 500 yards of a school" ALSO include "within 500 yards of a parks"?

                  Heh, I never said it offended me. But isn't the whole rationale of the rule to present a professional, clean image to the world at large? Seems to me, a crowd of 100+ people standing around with bursts of fragrant smoke erupting here and there pretty much trumps the couple of groups that may be partaking during the round (which, as you might guess, was also happening). I'm not trying to come off as preachy here or anything, I'm just saying, I don't think it's right to imply that Washington is more guilty than Oregon when it comes to The Rule.

                    Point is, we need to stop worrying about social status related to being the tattle tale on these rule violations and just do our part and rat on the rule violating SOB's... I used to be a little concerned about what people would think if I ratted someone out but from now on I will just be upfront about it and if someone cries like a baby, i know i got plenty of fellow dg'ers who will back me up... I would expect the same for everyone else... I want to see the game grow, i want to see my kid*s* be able to play this game their entire lives, but it wont happen as long as we are sterotyped and don't help each other step up our image...

                        Now you got my curiousity "piqued" if that how you use that in English... Why is the tournament scene not "Mr Schneider's" "thing"? Just curious... I would like to hear the other side of the spectrum...

                          Some people don't like when it takes over 3 hours to play one round.

                            This. I'm on the course to throw, not stand around. This is why I don't play Pier Park except before noon on weekdays.

                            Also, I don't have as much fun if my score actually matters, and if I can't throw extra discs to see what they would've done.

                            Also -- the reason I posted here -- I've rarely seen a large congregation of disc golfers that didn't involve cigarette smoke. I know people "try" to stay downwind, but you know that doesn't always work out. I can smell it from 500 feet away. (Pot smokers actually bother me less, because they usually go back in the woods and do their thing, and don't carry it around with them stinking up the course... on the other hand, pot smokers who do it out in the open piss me off much more, because it's not good for the image of the sport.)


                            I think it's interesting that so many serious disc golfers are always looking for organized tournaments to play in... most other sports aren't like that. There are thousands, maybe millions, of hard-core ball golfers who play every single weekend, but they rarely play in tournaments.
