Frisbee fines story clarified - Frisbees NOT banned

The reported “Frisbee Ban” is actually a misunderstanding, somehow perpetuated by social media, news sources etc… It appears that the intended rule or change to rules, was to allow officials/lifeguards etc, to designate areas at any given time for Frisbee tossing and other sports, based upon conditions at the beach.
