Have fun and follow the rules and spirit of disc golf. The purpose of the 2015 Bag Tag Challenge is to add another element to personal, league and tournament rounds of disc golf. Please display your Bag Tag where others can easily see it. You must have your Bag Tag with you to participate in any challenges and to be eligible for CTP prizes at So Cal Series events. Please do not avoid challenges by leaving your Bag Tag at home or by concealing your Bag Tag.
Your goal is to have the lowest numbered Bag Tag possible. When players participate in Bag Tag challenges, the player with the lowest round score earns the lowest numbered Bag Tag among the challengers. Bag Tags must be exchanged immediately following the round. In the event of a tie, the player who started with the lowest numbered Bag Tag will be awarded the lowest numbered Bag Tag. You may only challenge those with a 2015 So Cal Bag Tag; no other Bag Tags are eligible to participate in challenges. You must have your Bag Tag with you to challenge or accept challenges.
When you play any League, Tournament, or Recreational rounds of disc golf, you automatically have an individual or group challenge with all 2015 So Cal Bag Tag holders on your card. You may not deny this challenge. This challenge does not have to be publicly announced or agreed upon before the start of the round as it is automatic. You may not accept a challenge if you do not have your Bag Tag with you.
All challenges on your card take precedence over any challenge from another card. For example; if you have a challenge going with a person who is on another card, and you have an individual or group challenge going on your card, you have to settle with your card first and then you can settle any other challenges you may have.
Any member with a higher Bag Tag number may challenge any player with a lower Bag Tag number to a round of disc golf. Challenges may be made in person, by telephone or e-mail. The player receiving the challenge can choose the course to be played. If the challenger cannot agree to a reasonable time or date for the match within the coming week, the challenge is void and both players may look for new challenges. If the challenger has the lowest score for the round, the tags must be exchanged immediately following the round.
Challenges are on a round-by-round basis; i.e. challenges are for one round only in a multiple round event.
You may, but do not have to accept a challenge from a player that you have just beaten until either player has completed another challenge or one week has passed, whichever comes first. This ability to deny challenges excludes automatic challenges that occur during a subsequent round of a multi-round event.
If you lose your 2015 So Cal Bag Tag, please report it immediately. You may then purchase a new Bag Tag. Replacement tags, if available, will cost $5.00.
When a challenge via telephone or e-mail has been accepted, neither player can participate in another challenge until the agreed upon match has taken place.
The awards for 2015 Bag Tag will take place at the Year End Awards and Banquet in December. There will be a prize for the members holding the lowest and highest numbered Bag Tags. Additional Bag Tag prizes will be awarded at random and to players in all divisions.
If you are found to be purposely concealing a Bag Tag with a low number, or that you appear to be refusing to carry your Bag Tag to avoid challenges, you may be asked to surrender your Bag Tag. You may be allowed purchase a new Bag Tag if any remain available.
Rules are subject to change and disputes will be decided based on the spirit of the Bag Tag Challenge by the Board of Directors. The SoCal Board of Directors reserves the right to revoke your tag at any time.
