Thanks. The language of the law reads:
(a) It is unlawful for any person to: (1) Recklessly throw, push, pitch or otherwise cast any rock, stone or other object, matter or thing onto a street, road, highway, railroad right-of-way, or upon any vehicle, engine or car or any train, locomotive, railroad car, caboose, rail-mounted work equipment or rolling stock thereon.
That being said, it appears that by successfully landing on the island, one would not be breaking the law. That hole would be a great score differentiator. If you go onto the road, not only do you receive an OB penalty stroke, but you also are arrested on the spot by Kansas Police.
(a) It is unlawful for any person to: (1) Recklessly throw,
So when participating in a disc golf event are we recklessly throwing?
rash, heedless, incautious, negligent, imprudent.
1. utterly unconcerned about the consequences of some action; without caution; careless (usually followed by of):
2. characterized by or proceeding from such carelessness:
Since we are not being "rash, heedless, incautious, negligent or imprudent", it should be considered a lawful throw.
Do you concurr?
No! Deciding to throw while a pedestrian, biker or vehicle is in your potential disc flight path is obviously reckless. In multi-use space, it is the disc golfers responsibility to yield to all other users, whether you can see them or not (blind shot). My guess at SMP, is that the Rangers there have had multiple reports by other park user types of discs thrown by heedless, non-yielding, golfers. As a result, the park isn't going to approve, if even temporary, use of their space that would increase the likelihood of vehicle damage, biker accident and/or pedestrian injury.
