We are having the 1st bag tag challenge this Saturday at the disc golf course in Freeport, Chain Dragon. This is an 18 basket course that has a great combination of hazards and fairways. It is less than an hour from Panama City at the intersection of hwy 331 and hwy 20. Really not that far at all. If you need directions please send us an email. We are planning on playing two rounds of 18. The first round will be for bag tags, which everyone who plays will need. If you do not have a bag tag we will be signing people up at the challenge and a tag will be issued to you at a cost of $10 per membership. If you have never played the Freeport course it is recommended that you obtain a floater disc, which will float in water. Depending on how many people attend, we will separate into small groups, like we did in April, and start at different holes at 9 a.m.. Someone in your group needs to keep score of everyone in your group. Keeping up with your own score would be a good idea.With this bag tag challenge there will be no divisions. Everyone who has a tag will be competing for a better tag no matter the age or gender. There will be no cook out, lunch is on your own. There is a local Hardee's and Subway in Freeport among other local establishments. The weather is looking great on Saturday so we should have a great day to play.
After the 1st round and tags are organized for each player, you may either leave or stay for a doubles round of 18 holes. This round you will have a partner and play as a team. I don't believe this round will be for tags as it will just be for fun and something we have not tried yet. If all goes well we will have more team tournaments and challenges in the future.
If you plan on attending please send a reply email back to us so we may get an estimate as to how many people plan on attending. We have received several emails from people who plan on attending, but we would really like to have everyone come out. You do not have to let us know, you may just show up Saturday morning if you wish. You can contact any of the staff on our discgolfscene.com page for more details.
There 2nd bag tag challenge the following Saturday, September 29th, at the same Freeport course. This bag tag challenge will also be a Panama City Chain Gang event with Turbo Tim heading it up. Tim is planning on playing a bag tag challenge round of 18 as well, and is thinking of having a cook out also. Please contact Turbo Tim for more details and keep checking our site on Discgolfscene/pccg.com, plus Mike Bennett has started a Facebook page for our disc golf club, 'Panama City Chain Gang.' Please check both of these sites as they will have more details to follow.
We hope you will come out for either one, or even better both, of these events as we look forward to playing with old friends and new faces. We know we haven't had a group play since our initial kick off last April, so we are really hoping we have a great turn out in Freeport to see how many members are still playing, and to get an idea as to how many members want to keep having other bag tag challenges, tournaments, and events. Remember we are about half way to our annual tournament in April and over due for an event such as this. So start practicing your putting, get your bags ready, and bring your A game because this Saturday tags will be up for grabs!!
