I saw a gentleman refer to tournament etiquette by saying "and no FLICKING"

what exactly does this mean?

maybe he ment no FLIPPING? as in flipping your disc instad of using a mini? in tournys people get all bent out of shape about that.
I just got confirmation that I had it wrong and that is exactly what he meant...I can see why, that would really improve the lie in some cases.

It's not that it really improves your lie, it shoud do the same as putting down a mini on the front edge of your disc. Sometimes people actually flip the disc though and move it forward past the imaginary line at the front of the disc. Some people also try to place their foot more to the side of the disc than you would be able to legally behind the mini. But yes, in a tournament, especially sanctioned, use a mini.

Even in casual play, use a mini to stay in the practice of it. Flipping can actual constance another throw because you are actually placing a disc in front of your previous lie, so "Mini Marker" up.
Never use a mini. Stand behind your disc. It will save you bending over many times, especially in a long 3-4 round tourney over a weekend. If you can't make the putt because of the extra eight inches then you need to be in the back yard not on the course. The only time I use a mini is if it will somehow improve my being able to take a legal stance. i.e. stuck in a bush with nowhere to stick your foot.
Excellent point(s) Trevor. I do the same very often.

Or if I wish to throw the same disc... you're sounding like you'll fit in well in the Masters division Trev.
