An idea I had last week:
It seems that most people like knowing who has what bag tag. Transparency can only help the ongoing shuffle of tags...
Does anyone agree that it would be a good idea to write your new/current tag number in an extra column at the end of weekly score cards? If this isn't a too much extra work and data entry for Scott (Scott, please weigh in on this), it could be posted along with regular weekly scores. (Name, tag #, adjusted score, raw score) This would of course be voluntary, and I wouldn't expect everyone to participate. If someone wants to keep their tag# private, that's lame, but fine by me. I think most people would want to list their tag, and see where others landed week to week.
My guess is that this would start small, with only a few groups remembering to list tag #s on their score cards. As people continue to see tag #s posted with the weekly scores, I think more and more people would remember to do it, until it becomes a normal part of playing the weekly. If people really support this idea, we could make sure that the weekly score cards are printed with a column for tag#.
I can't think of a reason not to do this, unless it IS a lot more work for Scott to enter. I already appreciate the amount of time Scott puts into the weekly data, so I wouldn't want to add anything extra that might contribute to burn out.
Anyway, please list opinions on this. I'll assume that Scott's take should carry the most weight.
