Which is why I said,regardless if its a rule or not,he should of moved it out of courtesy. If It was a bench and was apart of park equipment,no need for it to even be questioned. Its just the simple fact that the spotter was looking at the situation as if he couldnt move it even if he wanted to.

I would have been pissed as well, and common sense dictates the chair be moved, but so many people respond to other rules quandaries with remarks like "then don't play sanctioned events". I'm getting into the spirit.

Cyclone is right, but what this really comes down to is this.

Well this is also in the rule book

"The Spirit of the Game

Disc golf is played, for the most part, without the supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be. This is the spirit of the game of disc golf."

And by your logic Cyclone I can park my big belly right in front of the basket and they can't do anything about it.

I think there should be a rule that says "If you do not want me to pee on it, then it is not part of the course..." I bet they would move it then.

For the record...

I really don't go around peeing on stuff. Just making a point. I will NOT pee on you, not even if you ask me to...unless there is a jellyfish and you are in pain, but that's it.

But how can they make rules against people not playing? This sounds more like an issue the PDGA needs to settle with the Competition Manual or something. The guy, who was part of the event, should be required to move himself and the chair from the line of play.
