2019 update: Bagtags from the DCDGC are unumbered this year, but players are free to number their tags and compete with their friends. Handicap tracking through udisc and discgolfscene every Sunday at 2pm, and Monday at 7pm is the main social/league games.
Dawson Creek DGC Bag Tag Rules 2018
Everyone shall conduct themselves honourably and according to the rules.
Default format and the general concept of bag tag play is head-to-head or within a playing group in order to win the lowest(best) tag possible.
Special circumstances including group challenges are acceptable so long as there is agreement amongst all tag holders present. Tag holders have the right to abstain from group challenges.
PDGA rules apply for bagtag games. Discretionary rules including the 2 meter rule are the decision of the lowest(best) tag holder.
Each bag tag holder must have their tag visible & on their bag at all times.
A player is required to have their bag tag in their possession to play a bag tag match.
The higher(e.g #13) Bag Tag challenges the lower(e.g #1) Bag Tag. Challenges can be by phone, e-mail, in person, or through the Dawson Creek Disc Golf Club Facebook group.
You may not refuse a challenge (with the exceptions previously mentioned.)
Once a challenge is made, players must reach a mutually agreeable meeting time within a two week time frame. The challenged player must not play other challenges until the set match has been played.
If the challenge is not met within the two week window, the lower tag must forfeit their tag to the challenger.
If a player is out of town or unable to accept challenges (and they have a top 16 tag ) for greater than 1 month, it is recommended they swap tags with a higher bagtag holding player, or receive a blank bagtag.
The challenged player holds authority to pick the course, tees and format.
If the challenger wins the round, the tags are exchanged.
Ties default to the holder of the lower(best) Bag Tag, unless ALL players agree before the round starts that play-off hole(s) will break ties.
Back-to-back challenges are optional. The holder of the lower tag holds the right to play an interim match before a rematch.
Incomplete round: If a player does not complete a Bag Tag challenge round, the exiting player must trade tags with the player with the highest tag number involved in the match. If play is stopped by all players before the round is complete, no tags are exchanged. This could be due to hazardous weather, physical emergency or mutual agreement.
Multiple people at the same course, at the same time, may have a group challenge with 5 or less playing per group. If more than 5 are present, the group must split into cards of at least 3 and play proceeds as if it were a tournament/league.
Challenges during official tournament play such as Battle of the Peace or or BC Open are optional.
DCDGC Memberships fees for 2019 are $30 for Adults, and includes a Bag Tag, udisc code (and disc for new members). Proceeds fund and support the handicap league games every Sunday, society, BC Ultimate, DCDGC club events, and the South Peace Disc Golf Courses we are developing.
Given the comprehensive rules, there shouldn’t be disputes. In the very unlikely event of a dispute, each party shall contact Daniel Martin for a final ruling.
