BCDC Bag Tag Challenge Rules


Bag Tag Challenge Season 2 

The second Bull City Disc Club Bag Tag Challenge will run from Saturday 4/6 (at the April monthly) to Sunday 10/6/2013 (the day after the October monthly). The initial distribution of tags will result from a placement after both rounds of the April monthly. Following the monthly, the lowest number available will be distributed on a first come-first serve basis based on contact with the bag tag administrators.The cost of a bag tag is $10. Contact bag tag administrator Marco Iannello <; 413.426.2877> to join. You will receive the lowest numbered bag tag available at the time. $1 covers the cost of the tag while the extra $9 goes towards the end of season prize pool. In order to receive a tag, the bag tag administrator will require your name, phone number, and email address.


Season 2 is migrating to a more wide open challenge format encouraging a more social series of challenges and an opportunity for a dynamic exchange of tags. Rules have been simplified. Please read on below, and have fun!

All challenges must be accepted, i.e., if a group meets up at Valley for a casual round and a bag tag holder makes a challenge, that challenge must be accepted.

The higher numbered Bag Tag (challenger) challenges a lower numbered Bag Tag (challengee).

The challenged player (lower numbered tag) 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.

The challenge should be completed using normal method of play. Examples of abnormal methods of play would be a one disc round, requirement to throw with a certain hand or method (forehand, backhand, etc), glow round, etc. If both parties agree, an abnormal method of play could be used in a challenge.

Back-to-back challenge rounds against are not encouraged but could be accepted if the parties agree.

Multiple people at the same course at the same time can have a group challenge.

Challenges at a BCDC monthly will be MANDATORY. Members willing to put up their numbers will have the numbers redistributed at the end of the monthly tournament according to aggregate score.

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. 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.

Lost Tags

When a tag is lost, you must make a new one from a mini and deal with the shame that reigns down upon you. You must also give the bag tag administrator $10 for the replacemtn tag you made.
