About this League
continue reading ›
Have fun and follow the rules and spirit of disc golf. The purpose of the Bag Tag is to add another fun element to personal, league, and tournament rounds of disc golf. Please display your Bag Tag where others can easily see it.
Join the Alaska Disc Golf Bag Tag Challenge ($10.00 for ADGA members and $15.00 for non-members) to receive a Bag Tag (supplies limited).
Your goal is to have the lowest numbered Bag Tag possible and have fun along the way.
Rules of Engagement
1. Members who “posses a current Bag Tag in hand” may issue/schedule/participate in challenge(s).
2. Any member with a higher Bag Tag number may challenge any player with a lower Bag Tag number to a round of disc golf.
3. Members cannot avoid challenges by leaving the Bag Tag at home or by concealing your Bag Tag (see forfeiture).
4. Challenges may be made in person, by telephone or e-mail. When a challenge via telephone or e-mail has been accepted, neither player can participate in Casual challenges until the agreed upon match has taken place.
5. The player receiving the challenge can choose the course to be played AND must make a “fair and reasonable” effort to be available within 1 week.
6. 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.
7. Once the challenge has been agreed upon, any changes must be agreed upon otherwise a forfeiture may occur.
8. If the challenger has the lowest score for the round, the tags must be exchanged immediately following the round.
9. Challenges are on a round-by-round basis; i.e. challenges are for one round only in a multiple round event.
10. If round is not completed by a player after challenge has started, that player shall receive the high # tag in the group.
Automatic Challenges (AC)
• Automatic challenge during any League, Tournament, or Casual/Recreational rounds, if any ADGA Bag Tag holder(s) are on your card (in group).
• The challenge does not need to be publicly announced or agreed upon before the start of the round–it is automatic!
• Members may not deny this challenge.
Casual Round Challenges (CRC)
ADGA members may casually meet at a course OR agree to meet at a course/time to compete for bag tags in:
• Head-to-Head (me vs. you) challenges.
• Group Challenges, where multiple players each put a Bag Tag at stake during the group round.
• Members may not deny a challenge and then proceed to play a round (see forfeiture).
Proximity & Distance Challenges (PDC)
Event, League or, Tournament Play
ADGA members “competing in” (proximity) a coordinated Disc Golf event (official or casual) may agree beforehand to compete for Bag Tags while playing in separate cards/groups/divisions (distance), for a given round.
Example: “Let’s see who shoots a lower score in Round 1.”
Any Automatic Challenges take precedence over any challenge from another card. You must settle with your current card first.
Relief & Award:
If a member is eligible for an Auto-Challenge AND shoots a better score than the tag holder in the AC round, but is denied his/her new tag due to claims of a “Distance” challenge he/she may claim the tag s/he is owed from any of the distance-competitors.
Wins, Ties, and Exchanges
Q: How do I win?
A: The player with the lowest score at the end of the challenge round earns the lowest numbered Bag Tag among the challengers.
Q: I won, when do I receive my winning Bag Tag?
A: Bag Tags must be exchanged immediately following the round.
Q: What happens if we have a tie?
A: In the event of a tie, the player who started with the lowest numbered Bag Tag will be awarded the lowest numbered Bag Tag. This may require some sorting in a group challenge.
Challengers who have just won, may, but do not have to accept/schedule a rematch challenge from a player that the s/he just beaten unless one of the following occurs:
1. Either player completes another, separate challenge.
2. One week has passes.,
Whichever comes first.
Rematches are overridden by automatic challenges that occur during a subsequent round of a multi-round event.
Members may only challenge members who posses the ADGA 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.
Each Bag Tag belongs to the entire club membership and should be accessible to all club members. Any club member will be required to surrender his/her Bag Tag if:
• He/She is found to be purposely concealing the Bag Tag, especially with a low number.
• Refusing and/or “forgetting” to carry his/her Bag Tag, especially to events where members are “likely” to be present.
• Refusing Automatic Challenges.
• Generally denying Bag Tag access to other members (TBD by 2 or more club officers).
If you lose your Bag Tag, please report it immediately. You may then purchase the next lowest number Bag Tag available. Replacement tags, if available, will cost $5.00.
If bag tag is forfeited the tag will go back in the pool and can be sold to the next member or can be purchased by an existing member for a $5.00 exchange fee. Rules are subject to change and the ADGA Board of Directors will decide all disputes. The ADGA Board of Directors reserves the right to revoke your Bag Tag at our discretion.

Fellow Disc Golfers,
Beginning today at 6 pm, John Lorentzen is starting up an unofficial organized round at Kincaid Park on Mondays. This will be a fundraiser to help raise money to improve both Kincaid Park, as well as, WCL. It's $5 per person with $2 going to the payout and the other $3 will be split between the two courses. The reason it's called the Bag Tag Fundraiser is because this is your chance to settle any challenges that may have been brought up during the week. On the other hand, when you get there and see that So and So is there with their number X card you can challenge that person on the spot. Those who just want to come out and be placed on a card to play for cards can do so as well. Lastly, John will also be giving out a special prize at the end of each Monday night round. I'll let him talk about that later. We hope you'll come out and support a good cause.

Course layout updates
I have contacted the web designer and have updated the course layouts. He fixed Kincaid, Russian Jack, Service High School and West Chester Lagoon. On Westchester please use the short9 and long9 until we reroute the course. After course is rerouted there is a 2010 layout for scores to be posted. If you see any more updates please let me know. Thanks Brian

If anyone would like to put in a challenge for someone who has a lower #, please go to the talk tab on the bag tag challenge home page and post. This will help me keep track of the challenges and make sure people are not making their tag unavailable to other players. Thanks Brian
