Either learn to deal with the slow player being slow or be the "Dbag" who enforces the rules. There really is no other option. People who play slow do so because either they're unaware that they...

You may want to re-read that. It's always against the rules to possess or imbibe alcohol during play at a PDGA event. There are no exceptions and no authority is granted to the TD to suspend that...

Part of the reason the PDGA doesn't allow alcohol is insurance related. Every player in every sanctioned event is covered under the PDGA's event insurance policy. By making it a rule that alcohol...
