I'll do all three depending on the situation. I usually yell from the tee to watch out, if they don't hear me I'll walk over and let them know that I'm about to send a disc flying through there and if it's a serious throng of people or equipment I'll throw way around them if feasible or just skip it.

I would do as BrotherDave said. Probably first skip the hole and come back if it looks like they are temporary. I had a kids soccer game set up on my first hole a few weeks ago. waited until they were on the other end of the field and then threw.

basically a point based contest set up for the sole purpose of getting the most aces. Discraft sponsors the actual "Ace Race" and vibram has their own version plus I am sure other local groups etc have held them with different discs or whatever.

It is, but no, they really don't have a right to be right there. There are plenty of other spaces available. That area really needs warning signs.

I have found that the verbal warning of discs headed your way does nothing. The sport is new here, and people have no idea what I'm talking about.

Pure'd a drive...

What exactly does that mean?

Really great line that ended up under the basket or a super straight drive with control. That's what it means around here anyway.

I'd take my 175 gram Boss and aim for their heads. That might teach them a lesson.

It means you threw a Pure (Lat 64 disc) off the tee. It is a great disc. Best putter I have ever used.

It usually means that your shot went straight through some type of gap.

Jolly launcher might be a new plastic blend, but it's also a marketing ploy...don't get duped.
