Raffles. Most disc golfers are obsessed with raffles. Just take your money, and buy what you want.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned so far in the 8 pages I have read through....very annoying to me, at least (especially when I am guilty of it)..

Players who are totally UNAWARE of when their disc is now the farthest from the basket, hence, it is now YOUR turn to throw. How hard is this concept? It happens to all of us, occasionally. Once they do realize or are told, NOW they can start the process of : getting to their disc; looking at the shot; determining what disc to throw; cleaning said disc; and going through their routine....finally throw the thing....then the whole process starts again on the next throw....AAARRRRGGGHHHH !

As an aside, and again we all have done it....following other players to their disc, when your disc is somewhere back there, and you have just walked halfway to the basket....DONE IT!!
Ummm, I've done this both ways. Ouch. Being out, and not playing, and being in and playing before the out player. Sigh. I have an excuse though, I'm old...

I've done this, and it is SUPER fun. You need a decent roller to do it, but if you have one, forcing yourself to throw really stupid rollers is a great time.

Mine is:
Noob buys OS Speed 14 driver
Noob hits one tree
Noob throws awful OAT turnover
Noob stops throwing disc because it is "too flippy now"

Go heel to toe three times to measure out a meter. Good attempt at being accurate but I'm sure it is not. Drop your mini down "close enough", without the extra effort. If someone has a meter stick with them they can say something.
My size 13 boots are 12" long.
3x12=36" and a meter is 39" and some change so i'm within the parameters of the rule which is UP TO A METER relief from OB

I know a few guys, usually players who are not quite as good as they think they are, who will quit or want you to think they quit, if they are in danger of losing a round. They suddenly have to quit after nine holes or they start throwing rollers or other out of character shots to try to show that they were just goofing around the whole time and not really trying to put together a solid round. Some people have such fragile egos.

Players who use DGCR to record thousands of courses played yet never leave a single review in 11 years of use....WTF? It's disc golf course review, not Disc golf courses i've played, give a little back fer gawds sake. (Yep, I just found the members stats pages for the first time and shocked to see how many people just use this as a course bagging record without ever helping other players make a choice of where to play. Play it, review it, or at least review some of them!!

Piggy backing on the 3foots length thing:

When players measure out only 10paces thinking that 10yards/10steps is equal to 10metric meters to verify if a putt is outside the circle.

32.8feet is about 10meters so that’s more often almost a normal 11 steps.

Yeah, I don't let that fly in my groups. If someone paces it out, I count with them and make sure they get to at least 11 (I suggest 12 just to be sure) before they declare themselves outside the circle. Also have to watch to be sure they're taking full, 3-foot-ish strides. Sometimes the terrain forces a short stride or two to step over/around an obstacle and you have to be aware of that as you count.
