Hey guess what! A tag is just a tag. A worthless piece of pot-metal we all carry so proudly. Why??.My dog has several tags he packs on his collar but he never cops an attitude about them. Although he does occasionally lick his balls in public just to make others jealous. I started playing this game before Nudga had tags, THANK GOD! I always hear people asking if we have TAGS for sale. Hell no! We have a fee in order to become a member of the coolest group of disc golfers in the USA. This fee helps maintain our course and fund the best tournaments in the state. WE DON'T SELL TAGS. Yet that seems to be what way too many people concern themselves with, TAGS. I play for fun, the spirit of competition, and the camaraderie of awesome people who are members of our club. Who cares what tag you have. A good tag doesnt make you a better father/mother, husband/wife, neighbor, citizen, or friend. You wont be given sponsorship to play the PDGA tour. It will not enshrine your name into the library of congress. Your bag won't be on display at the smithsonian. You won't be given a raise at work, and you will not receive the congressional medal of honor. You'll still have to pay taxes, eat and breath once In a while in order to live. And when you take a dump, it will stink just like mine does. Go tell your neighbor or co-workers about your nifty little tag and it will probably bring a puzzled look to their face as they ask you what disc golf is. When they dig our bodies up in 2000 years they won't wonder in amazement at the shiny metallic charms we carried that were inscribed with a funny acronym and a series of numerals. Having a better tag than someone means nothing. We can ALL do SOMETHING better than the next guy. Just so happens that a GAME has brought us all together. And at times this GAME sets us apart, which is unfortunate. I say play to have fun and who gives a damn bout a piece of tin. It's not like you can take the #1 tag to PAWN STARS and retire off what they pay ya for it. Ha ha. There were MASSIVE TEARS FLOWING after the round to give out new tags because people left early and took tag with them. Who cares? Damn, the earth is gonna wobble off it's axis cause someone had to get a tag 1 digit worse than they earned. ITS DISC GOLF PEOPLE!! Not the superbowl, world series, Stanley cup or daytona 500. I luv ya all and enjoy playin with (almost) all of you. Don't let tags get in the way of good people enjoying an awesome game together. I've spoken my price, and then some, I'm out. PEACE
