April Fools Dubs practice @ Sunday Dubs & Bag Tag 2012?

Hey guys! I'm kind of missing the league, but taking a break here. I would like to have a tally of how many of you would purchase tags for this year if I run it again. Post on here, email me @ billgaskill@gmail.com, or text me: 828-489-1617. I'm getting some art work together, putting together a player's pack, and working on some new formats that I think will make it even more fun next year. Also, Mike G. asked me to post on here to let you all know that Sunday Dubs tomorrow, 3-25, will be ... more

I have some league plastic lying around. Pretty sweet stuff. Last chance to play Bryant for the year, most likely (Not to mention the last day of the year) I'm bringing my hip waders! I know, I know.

All hail Sir Nick

Alas, Sir Nick Marshall had his iron horse stolen up in Portland (Actually, it was more of a pony). What did Nick say when I tried to console him? "I don't care about the car. My DISCS WERE IN THERE!!!!! "



And what was attached to Nick's stolen disc golf bag? Tag #12!



So, there is no longer any tag number #12. Well, existentially I guess there is, but not in OUR league.



Now, if I can just activate the remote self destruct module....

Hey all, I've been talking with a few guys about getting together tomorrow morning (Sat. 11/19) for a tag round. Might be in the snow, from what I hear! Let's make it 9 am, Adair. $5 buy in, winner takes 80%, random draw tag takes 20%. Also, we'll have a chance to discuss possible dates for the bag tag finale.

Holy Crap!!!



That was really fun guys! 22 guys showed up for a great round @ Willamette.



Jesse Seibel took the #2 tag and the PreRelease Prototype TeeDevil.

John D. won the random draw (tag #45) and won the Angel Holding Beer on Tray/Releasing Fart from Skirt ROC

RYAN HOPSON ACCEEEEDDD hole #7 with a TeeBird, I think. He won a Glow ROC with Rainbow Stamp!



Someone remind me who won the CTPs: I think it was Tyler and Skinny. Two 22oz, First Run Calapooia Bottled Chili Beers, and a couple of badass minis!

Ok, to hell with Doodle. I've royally mucked this one up, so I'm going to behave like a king and do whatever I wish! I figure with Gaddafi 6 feet under, there's room for a little autocracy in the world. We're playing for tags on Saturday at 5:00 PM at Willamette. I've spent $60 in League cash on some kickass merch as pictured below. If only 10 of us show up for it, so be it. I know I will be there, and I'm bringing some game! I dare you to take away my precious Tee Devil, and my CTP beer!



There will be at least a couple Safari rounds TBA!

Bag Tag Challenge: The Legacy of a Rampage.

The people have Doodled! Friday, Oct. 7, 5:00PM at Willamette.



A brand new, cobalt colored, Legacy Rampage (speed 14 driver) is up for grabs this week.

We'll play a straight up, stroke play round. Lowest tag number at the end gets the Rampage.



There will also be a randomly drawn tag that will win a beautiful custom stamped ROC.



But wait, there's more! A CTP on hole #16 will win a Mini Driver and a great big delicious beer. (Must be over twenty-one to redeem, or bring father and his generously round beer gut.)



See you guys out there! Tee time 5pm sharp-ish.

I have a small number of fishing style glow sticks and some tape, but I would recommend getting your own. The BEST ones (aside from the mounted LED type) that you can tape to your disc are the ones you can get at Bimart (or GLBTmart, as I like to call it). They are the tiny LED lights that look like lite-brite light replacements. They are metal cylinders with a plastic tip, super bright, and can usually be used again...expensive though ($4 a piece or so).



Or you can just plan on winning the tag dump at 6pm and getting a sweet LED setup and new disc.....

We're down to the last 6. If you know anyone who's been wanting to pick one up, get them to come out to Willamette tonight at 545. I'm not going to order any more this year, so were getting down to the wire here.

We'll tag dump, and low tag (from raw score), will get first choice of the two discs I'm bringing out. The high numbered tag gets the other. Talk about a bagger challenge!



See you all on Tues. at Adair, 5:45pm.

Ok guys, time for a throwdown. I have a sweet first run Archon and a badass Roc burning a hole in my pocket (I have really big pockets)



Here's the deal: At handicaps

Lonely Bag Tags

I have Bryan's #13, Karl's #7, and #38 and #39 for whoever "took" them at the Wash. They'll be in my car. If you want to call or text me and arrange a pickup/dropoff, I'm cool with that. (828-489-1617) By the way, I'm really stoked that we have some new members from the Wash! Just for clarity, make sure you read rule #2 again...you MUST have your bag tag on you to participate in a challenge. I know that got bent a little this weekend, and that's ok (TD had my powers), but let's stick to tha ... more

The Rules

Sweet! looks like the Wash produced some more bag taggers. I thought I would post the rules again for them. I wrote a suggestion to DGS.com that they should have a permanent rules section here so the rules don't drop off the news with new posts...we'll see what happens.



Anyway...here they are again: I've made some clarifications, but otherwise no major changes.

The Wash

Eric S. is in charge of the tag dump at the Wash. I really wish I could make it out there!



Have fun guys.

Way to go Mike Key!

Jesse's reign has ended! Not only that, but Mike has already defended #1. Who's next?!?

Bryant Handicaps

Hey Guys, A couple things. First, Mike Storrs is suggesting that he's going to shut down Bryant Handicaps if <12 guys show up this week. That would be a shame, I think. In my opinion, Bryant is the most challenging/interesting course in the area right now. Several of the Albany crew have done some serious work out there, and the fairways are really reasonable. I plan to do some grooming next week as well. It's great to have a course that really challenges you to make precision shots. I t ... more

AM-BOOZLED!!!

I don't want to pour too much salt on those fresh wounds, Nate, but....



WOOOOHOOOO!!! Way to go Shawn Barry!

Shooting a SMOKIN' 45 (gotta be a PR) to tear the #2 tag off of Nate's bag.

The student becomes the teacher. It's gotta be a bit like the first time I took my dad down wrestling though....I think I cried a little.



Nice work Shawn.

Lost and Lonely bag tags

Mike, Karl, Bryan, and Roy- I have your bag tags. I'll be at handicaps tonight. If I don't see you there, they will be in my car and you can grab them when you see me.

The Willamette Open

Hey guys, Wow! What an awesome weekend. I had a great time! Nate S. took first for the pros (did we ever question him?) securing the #2 tag and a badass piece of glow plastic. I took down the Advanced field, taking #3 and a nice Echo Star Destroyer (I told you I'd get my money back, one disc at a time if I have to!) Kelly dominated the Pro Masters (He was the only one with a tag). Dr. Bryce also won a nice new disc by default as the only GM tag holder. The intermediate men were shephe ... more

Tag Dump

Thanks to Dave Pittman and Aaron Swank. Give either of those gents your tag if you are in flight b at willamette in the am. I'll be collecting all of the tags at adair.



See you guys in the morning!

WO Tag Dump

Hey all,



I need a volunteer from flight B (Pros and Intermediate Ams) who can take charge of collecting tags on Sat. morning at Willamette. I'm going to be taking care of flight A at Adair. Let me know if you're willing to do this and I'll let you know what I need you to do. (Basically, we need to keep track of what # people came in with and what div. they are in)



Thanks,

THROWDOWN #1- Bounty on Seibel

Whoever takes the #1 tag from Jesse so we have it at the Willamette Open will win a brand new, First Run, NUKE OS!

Tag Updates

Hey everyone, I'm really stoked that we're all updating our tag numbers pretty religiously. I've noticed that some folks post tag updates after scoring a round. If someone in your group has scored the round here, the system automatically updates the tag numbers for you. You might not see the updated tag number immediately because I have to approve the round first. I usually do that within minutes if I have my phone on me. It's no big deal for me though, I just delete or deny any redundan ... more

The Willamette Open

Alright. Here we go. It's our first tournament tag dump. I'll be paying out the lowest numbered tag in each division. Anyone playing in the Open, bring me your tag on Sat. am.



Skinny helped me pick out some SWEET discs for payouts. (Don't worry Nate, we got some sick Discraft shizzle in there)



It's on like donkey kong!

Rules of Play

Ok, I've finalized the rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1B-aHhHA8hUt1zs6yBacmjMGfiKCInazzXpGoqvTDKgs/edit?hl=en_US Notice that I reserve the right to "bend" the rules occasionally for throwdowns. For example, if one person is sitting on the #1 tag for a long time, I may initiate a Mob Challenge where everyone has a chance in a single round to take out the #1 tag holder. Heck, I might even give him/her a little handicap! Don't worry, I won't do this right before a big payout o ... more

That was FUN!

Hey, thanks again to everyone who showed up for the first match play tourney of the Willamette Valley Bag Tag Challenge 2011!!! I know I had a really good time out there. Now I just have to get rid of this #12 tag. Sorry Hooper, but your bum ankle is calling to me. Plus Jesse could refuse my challenge and Skinny, well, he's just not easy for me to beat... I wanted to let you all know about "Billy's Bag Tag Throwdowns". Every other week or so, I'm going to post a challenge here. It mi ... more

See you all tomorrow for the Bag Tag Challenge!

Well, I guess I'm ready. I'm ironing out the details for the bracket system for the match play tourney. I've never done this, so it might be really interesting. Bear with me tomorrow. Since I'm playing in the dang thing, I need a couple of you to run the board for me when I'm out competing. We'll figure it out. I'm stoked! I'm getting some food together for after the tourney. I will bring charcoal/lighter fluid. Bring your own meats. I'm also bringing a couple pans of my famous mac ... more

THEY'RE HERE!!!

Hey Guys, I'm really stoked. The bag tags have arrived! They look decent. The printed putters from Gateway look great. I'm going to be running the initial Match Play playoff for the order of the tags in the next couple weeks. It's going to be impossible to pick a time that fits everyone's schedule, especially with all the upcoming tournaments. I'll do my best. Any input is appreciated, but I'm going to just have to make an executive decision at some point. Briefly here's what you'll get ... more

Skinny tells me the bag tags and discs are en route from Gateway. I will let you all know when we are going to do the first match play afternoon to pass out the tags!

Calapooia Brewing has agreed to a liquid sponsorship of the two tourneys...one at the beginning and the final bag tag bash. Thanks to Mark and Paul for helping me out with the logo, and for ongoing excellence in malt beverage production.
