Much of the reason Charlie started the Martin Disc Golf Club was to advocate and care for the Harrison Road Disc Golf Course. So far we have accomplished much in the way of course of improvements, but as you can tell from the piles of wood chips and railroad ties staged on the course – there is much more to do! Expect to have the opportunity to attend a three hour ‘MULCH PARTY’ in the very near future.
This writer had big fun during the 2013 bag tag challenge. I started with tag #9 after the kick-off tournament. My lowest tag was #22 and I ended with #6 – not too shabby. The 2014 tag challenge will be bigger and better! If you like competing in disc golf, then you’ll enjoy competing in bag tag challenge matches. Bag tags are a way to compete with single players or within groups. It’s pretty simple … best score for the round wins the lowest bag tag within the competition (complete rules are posted on our Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MartinTNdgClub/). The goal in bag tag challenges is to work your way up to the #1 tag!
Bag tags look spiffy hanging from your disc golf bag or backpack and identify you as a part of the Martin Disc Golf Club. The best part is you get all this swagger and also support your local disc golf club for only $7!
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE!!!
There will be monthly weekend bag tag tournaments for you to play in and a weekday evening league (currently Tuesday @ 6:00 pm). Bag tag players will have contact info to arrange 1 on 1 challenges with other players.
AND, I am pretty certain that a Martin Disc Golf Club Bag Tag proudly displayed from your bag or backpack actually makes you more attractive to potential mates!!!
Bag tags will first be available at Tuesday League or a weekend tournament when they first come in. Next couple of weeks. After the low numbers have been distributed on the field of valor, you may purchase tags from the club and begin your 2014 bag tag challenge
The Harrison Road Vibram Birdie Bash was big fun! We altered the course, and had an excellent day of bashing birdies. The photo at right shows the winners: Charlie Jahr and Colin Tindall. Colin also won the spirit award because he was awesome! We hope to do this again next year – look for it!
