So basically you cant touch your marker disc for the same reason you can't flip your disc and use that as your lie.
For the record if your foot was just ever so slightly touching your mini as it is in the picture you provided I woudln't call you on it.
I grasp your point but disagree with the red part above. You can
touch your mini under the rules. As you stated it's advisable
not to touch it because, more than likely, you will make a stance violation.
The crux of my argument is that, even though you touch your mini in the process of a throw, it's not a stance violation. I'm bouncing ideas around because I just want to make sure I know the rules before someone calls me for a violation or I call someone else. thanks for the responses
