Why push it,
Can you not make it through the day without a beer?
Don't get me wrong I would have a beer every hole if it wasn't against the rules.

If a player has been previously issued a warning for alcohol possession at the same event, all subsequent violations shall result in immediate disqualification.
Sounds like possession of OH during rain delay is DQable. What if someone else holds the beer and I sip it through a straw?
That rule has always made me chuckle. As far as I read it, you are good if you put the alcohol away a few moments before submitting the scorecards. Or if you start drinking on hole 2.
You are just not allowed to carry it from start to finish.

Here's the part that gets me.

E. The director may postpone the incomplete portion of the round for a later date if, in the director's opinion, the conditions will not improve or if darkness will fall prior to the projected finish time.
So unless you turn in score cards until the next day or week or month or whenever it's rescheduled, you can't drink the entire time?

What?

Yeah, if you drink over night the PDGA beer nazi police will be at your door.
I thought you were being serious until I saw this post.

In OR there are no alcohol rules for state and most city parks. Pier Park has a one-day alcohol permit you can buy; unfortunately, its $15, which raises the cost of a drink higher than bar rates.

Meanwhile, at the Fling for Life benefit at the Blue Angel complex in Pensacola, there was a beer cart that traveled the course during rounds so you didn't have to carry your own cooler, and cans were $1.25. Life is good in the South.

To me, this is the classic case of "...the rules can't possibly cover every single situation (in writing)..." --OR-- the converse, "...where's the loophole somebody's looking for to get away with something...." So in my mind, if the intent of a rule is clear then that IS what it means, whether there's a loophole in the letter of the rule or not.

I would think that the rules and competition manual mean you cannot consume or possess these during the round. The laws of the park, to me, specifically don't matter. If you're in rain delay, that round is still going on. A "rain delay" is just that -- a "delay" in the round whereby players are still out on the course, but not playing at the time, just like a baseball "rain delay". Once the TD calls it off, then it's no longer a "delay." Now obviously the TD has to be sure he/she has clearly defined how the call is made.

If we are debating the intent of the rule, then that's a different argument. But I believe the intent is clear; no alcohol during play until you separate yourself from the round by either turning the cards in or leaving the park/course.

That's just my interpretation.

Put your drank in a container that hides the contents. Problem solved.

It depends on how much you drink. Kind of sounds more like a challenge.
