I heartily agree. I did my share back when I was young. so nothing against those that choose to partake. but even during a mini it seems really innapropriate. If they keep it to themselves and I dont have to see it then whatever. I think it's up to the TD to really set the tone at the players meeting though. my first tourney in Abilene the TD stressed how anyone caught drinking beer or smoking the "green" would be DQ'd and asked to leave. period and I only once smelled it on the far side of the parking lot.
that and smokers who throw the butts on the ground. I always ask my group if they mind if I smoke, and if it's ok I keep my butts in a stash tray till I can trash can them. but alas.I'm sure some people dislike smokers too so oh well.
dont be a H8ter!! haha. no. I dont smoke that much man.. sometimes I dont smoke at all .
the point was I pick up all my trash, and I observe others around me. call me a "conciensious" (sic) smoker, but I do believe in appealling to others around me as far as smoking goes. even at a mini or a tournament I'll stay at the fringe if I am smoking and watch wind direction.
not all smokers huff a pack an hour dude.
i really don't understand why people cannot take the the trash that they bring on the course off the course with them. At least hold on to that empty 12 pack box till you see a garbage can. There are normally quite few of them located every couple of holes. If you think about it you are actually giving the vandals more fuel for there fires buy leaving crap like that all over the course.
I always love the players who bring one disc, throw it as fast and carelessly as possible while talking on their cell phone the whole time, and then want to play through your group like they are seriously playing the game or something... :)
I smoke cigarettes but make sure to ask my group, and I pocket my butts, Litter on the course sucks and the parks departments and the public look down on us for that. Also, nothing wrong with the herb, but not around the younger players. In tournys with a young or novice devision, keep it hidden or do it prior and at lunch. Represent the sport and more players will come. Just my 2 cents.
I play for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's with my friends and social. Other times I'm out there for a bit of exercise and by myself. I play fast, usually in the early morning, and usually with earphones. Is that so bad?
My biggest peeve is when I hear someone complain about he trash and then walk right by a can or plastic bottle. It's not that hard to pick a little trash up during a round. Like others, just my 2 cents.
Sorry dude i used to do that every time i played disc. i got tired of wieghing down my self with other peoples trash . I came to play disc golf not cleap up a frigging park. If your mama dosent play disc golf then you better pick up after yourself. . I dont drink pop or beer out on the course . i have used the same jug for my tea or water for over two years. i quit smoking. and rarly ever eat any thing while playing disc. i don't bring or leave trash so I'm not hauling any more out with me.
Well, I play disc golf, and if I ever caught my sons littering on the course I'd kick their @$$, I'm out thier to escape my worries, not clean up after my family! Really though, sounds like you've kicked some bad habits, way to go!
