Proposal- $4.00 mid-round quitting fee.

Should a penalty fee be implemented to dissuade people from quitting during a round? 4,5 bucks?

What?

I guess it would depend on the circumstances.

If they, quit on hole 8 after kicking their bag, screaming the f-word, and stomping off in a hissy fit cause they missed another 10 footer........then yes.

If they, skipped the last 2 holes because its puring down rain and they're down by 10 strokes with only two to go........then no.

If they, get injured at any point during the round then obviously........no.

So what you bringing to the IceBowl for EVERYONE to eat?

dear thefox,

splendid idea. perhaps we should charge $1.00 per remaining hole. injuries would be exempt with a valid doctor excuse.

if we can implement this retroactively, a certain someone would owe $657.67 by my calculations.

put it to vote and we can add this to the bylaws.

Good idea for a charity event. However, good luck getting some people to pay. They are already salty for playing poorly or got drunk to early.

Why would a guy, who is notorious for picking up and leaving half way through a round start a thread like this?

The Fox = The Fonz, right?

Correct. Fonz. Just fun fund raising. Beats a cake sale and I don't know how to organize a tourny. Also, if you take a tumble, $1.00 fee, etc. Just ideas.

Not retroactive, it's in the bylaws of The National Disc Golf Amendments and Regulations Manifesto. est. 1937, article 38. chap 12. Sorry Kev.

Pete, feel free to chime in with a mom joke now, though they should be worth $1.00 also.

How about $5 penalty for getting a ctp started before everyone gets in! Or if you practice a ctp, $1/foot away from the basket!

Or penalty is they must be the new CTP marker for all to toss at.

how bout a bag kicking fee?
I've since lost it, but at the 2007 Ice Bowl at SM I caught footage of some guy kicking his bag after he missed his put on hole #3. It was funny to watch because his bag pretty much exploded and all his discs came out of the bag. A few of them looked as though they were going to roll down the mountain.

Kev-

Them bag kickers serve a comedic purpose. It's pretty funny. Maybe a .75 cent discount for each incident. A punt is worth .50.
