I only wonder if Team Germany would be paying for Simon to fly from the US to Estonia, his food and lodging while he was there, and a flight back to the US afterward? Because that would be the only...

The marking rule 802.06.B.

The marker is supposed to be placed "on the playing surface, touching the front of the thrown disc on the line of play". Technically speaking, the mini wasn't placed on...

Sunday would need to be designated as a make up/over-run date well in advance of the event in order to get away with it. It's not something that can be announced on Friday that the tournament will...

You mean aside from the first year of Worlds? :)

Sam Ferrans won the third ever World championships in 1984. He was not in attendance for the first two. He's the only one I can find.

Rick's first title was in Emporia and that event was 5.5 rounds (4 + semis + final 9). His second, in Augusta, was the only four round Worlds that has ever been held.

I think five rounds is just...

Scheduling is the biggest issue. Even when it's been in North America, the tour has been on the other side of the continent when it's gone on. And that was when the PDGA was involved with it (major...

Ah, makes sense.

I don't think an interference penalty is warranted on the other player. A misplay penalty for sure, but not interference.

If he picked up the disc believing it was his own, I don't think that qualifies as intentional...

At one point, Star team was for major champions only. Now it seems to be full time touring players + major champions. Since Eveliina is neither at the moment, it's no surprise she isn't there. My...

Multi-round days would mean easier/shorter courses. I can't imagine they're going to do that just to satisfy what likely is a minority opinion about the number of rounds.

Scratch that. Simon's going to Iron Hill after all. Apparently, Discmania prefers that he play there. Or at least, that's what he told the TD up here.

I didn't detail it since I didn't think it would be all that relevant because it likely has nothing to do with Cat's issue or anyone else's. I have no problem with sharing though.

PDGA sanctioned, the TD didn't know how to proceed, and he didn't think to just look up the rule in the book? Shameful. As Smigles points out, the rule is clearly labeled "Misplay" and is pretty...
