There's a culvert in play on one of the holes (17?) at Rand Park in Keokuk, IA.
If your disc goes in, you are required to throw out of it.

What if your disc is under the bridge on dry ground, but not enough clearance to take a legal stance? Do you just move back and take relief to the side of the brifge opposite the basket?

I had a disc in a pipe in World Mixed Doubles and Chuck made me stick my foot down the pipe and play from there instead of playing from the grass over the pipe directly above my disc. What a jerk. There could have been snakes, homeless people, or strange clown spiders. "We all float down here."


Hornets nest #7 in this picture on the right middle of the right side fairway; between the first 2 tree shadows. That pipe.

You see that a lot at some of the newer parks where they built up fields to level with fill dirt... the sides crack and erode...we had 2' deep cracks and channels at Eastway and RL Smith on some of the fairways where water eroded or flowed through the ground under the surface...

Your disc was sitting exposed to the sky in the half pipe as I recall with no ground above it. I believe they later covered the pipe before singles started. Even if it was partway in the pipe, you don't get relief on the ground above the pipe IF you can still mark and take a legal stance (which you were able to do). It's similar to when your disc is almost against a tree on the basket side. You must take a stance there if you can and only get solid object relief behind the tree if you physically can't take a legal stance.

What if my disc rolls in front of a huge fallen tree, and there is no place to stand within 30cm of the disc unless you are standing atop the fallen tree?

Can I throw from atop the tree since it's immediately behind my lie within 30cm?

A fallen tree is generally not considered a playing surface. So No. Rule 803.04 covers this
Quote:
E. If a large solid obstacle prevents a player from taking a legal stance within 30 centimeters directly behind the marker disc, the player shall take his or her stance immediately behind that obstacle on the line of play. The player must comply with all the provisions of 803.04 A other than being within 30 centimeters directly behind the marker disc.

It would seem to me that taking stance above, if possible. would be the most reasonable and logical extension of the rule. Unless TD specifically says otherwise.
