Our club is looking to start tag matches but not sure what is the best, cheapest, or a mixture of both type of tag to start with? we have around 20 members so we are not looking to order in big groups of 100 or anything. any ideas?
if you are looking for cheap, just cut some #'s out of construction paper, if you want nice, get the one's hootie mention'd, and order some extra one's, your club will grow and you will be ready when it does.
Our club uses a metal Tag that is about 2in square piece of stainless steel that has our logo on it and the tag number. Someone it the upstate of SC makes them, but I'm sure you can find em anywhere. They are super durable and I think each member pays 10 buck for a replacement if you lose it, you get your first on with the 10 bucks that you pay when you join the club. And I think they make a cool jingle on your bag also!
In So Cal we get our bag tags from Temple Tag. They make nearly indestructible cattle ID tags in many colors. We get the large Herdsmen with key rings instead of rivets. We paid an extra die fee one time to have our club logo printed on the reverse side. The key rings never rip out and the numbers and logo won't wear off. They are less than $2.00 each and you can order as little as 25. Here is the link: http://www.templetag.com/
The disc golf club in Big Rapids, Michigan uses metal bottle openers with numbers stamped on them and key rings so they clip on bags. The bottle openers are shaped like a dog bone (their home course is on the campus of Ferris State University-the bulldogs).
The bag tags look cool and are functional so golfers buy them (and therefore support the club) even if they don't expect to take part in the tag challenge. My tag is green #17.
My club uses dominos with a little hole drilled in the first digit, wired to a key ring. The blank one is one, and the one blank is ten. You will need two sets of double nine dominos, a small drill bit, automotive safety wire and key rings. They work great and you can make or replace any number you need.
