I don't consider myself a noob, but this is a good thread to clarify this for me. Casual relief is defined as "up to 5 meters straight back" on the line created by the basket and your disc. But...
If my disc lands in the middle of a 20 meter (diameter) muddy pond, does casual relief take me all the way to the edge of the pond, even though it's 10 meters from where my disc came to rest? Also, if it's a muddy pond, do I have to technically go in and find my disc before I can take casual relief, otherwise it's a lost disc?
For those of you who played the Majestic, I'm thinking of the casual pond on #10 at BRP.
