What the heck is a bag tag?

Bag tags are a friend way of bolstering competition for local members. Every member will get a numbered bag tag. The goal is then simple, try to be #1 by challenging and winning matches against other bag tag members. Below are some rules of etiquette, challenge rules and reporting matches.

Bag Tag Etiquette

Disc golf is an honor and truth based sport so we will conduct ourselves according to the rules but with spirit of competition. Chill out. It's a luggage looking tag. Even though they're made of metal, you're not going to die if you lose. The main purpose of the bag tag challenge is to encourage friendly competition among Danville Disc Golf members.

In order for Bag Tag Challenges to work, all challenges must be accepted.
Each player must have their Bag Tag at all times. Bag Tags must be plainly visible and can not be hidden.
Challenges are to be made by choosing times and courses that are reasonable.
Friendly side wagers of any kind can be made at the discretion of the participants, but are NOT required.

Challenges

In order for Bag Tag Challenges to work, all challenges must be accepted.

1) Challenges will run once bag tags are recieved (March 4, 2017 based on your finish at the March Maddisc PDGA Tournament) up until at TBD date at years end but before the Danvile Disc Golf Member Championship, planned for November 4.

2) The higher Bag Tag challenges the lower Bag Tag. You are not allowed to challenge more than 5 spots above your current tag. If you are tag #7, you can challenge #2-6. Challenges can be made in person, email or through the Danville Disc Golf Facebook Page. We're working on getting challenges through the website, not sure on a timeframe but I'm working on it.

3) The challenged player must give the challenger two (2) times to meet in the next two (2) weeks or they must forfeit the tag. Preferably both a weekday and weekend option. If the challenger can not meet that timeline, the challenge is void. Not showing up for a match results in a forfeit no matter the excuse.

4) The challenged player picks the course, tees and format. Format choices include: stroke play or match play. PDGA rules apply. If the challenger wins the round, the tags are exchanged.

5) Ties are won by the holder of the lower bag tag. However, players can agree before the round starts that a play-off will be used in case of a tie, and rules for the play-off.

6) A player can't challenge you, lose to you, and immediately challenge you again for another round. They must challenge or be challenged by another player first. However, if agreed, consecutive round challenges are allowed if both players consent.

7) Incomplete round: If a player does not complete a bag tag challenge round, the exiting player should trade tags with the player with the highest tag number that is present at the entire event (unless for health reasons). If play is stopped by all players before the round is complete, no tags are exchanged. This could be due to hazardous weather, physical emergency or mutual agreement.

8) Multiple people at the same course at the same time can have a group challenge with 5 or less playing in the group but must adhere to the 5 spot rule in moving up.

League or Tournament Challenges

All MUST participate in at least one challenge if the TD gives proper notice and aknowledges it is a bag tag event prior to the event. This would be the only exception to the more than 5 spots rule if a majority of the players on the card agree. No sudden death will decide ties. You must play the same tees for the challenge to be accepted in tournaments.

Ranking

Tags will be issued at the March Maddisc Event. Best scores at this event will determine tags. Lowest score first round and winning the match play event will get lowest tag. Subsequent tags will be given to players winning match play with second best score and so on. Players joining after the March Maddisc Event will receive the lowest available tag. If you are unable to make the event but have paid membership you will recieve the lowest available tag after those that have played. To obtain a tag, sign up for membership.

Reporting

Players holding tags must update the club respentative or by posting on the Danville Disc Golf Facebook Page with the results of the challenge within a couple days. The website will then be updated to reflect the new rankings, if any changes occur. The winner of the challenge is responsible for reporting the results of the challenge.

Lost tags

Lost tags must be reported within 1 week of misplacment. You can do so on our Danville Disc Golf Facebook Page or by contacting Kevin on our contact page. There will be a cost to replace a lost tag. That cost is the responsibility of the member who lost it and depends upon quantity of current tags in stock (more than likely @$10). Any lost tag must be paid within 4 weeks or membership will be suspended.
