Announcing the 1st Annual CannonBall Run TravelBug Race.
Rules are simple:
Get yourself a set of TravelBug tags, (avalible from Groundspeak) and attach them to a race vehicle. Include whatever instruction you feel are necessary.
Send it to me via snail mail at:
1242 Graff Rd
Attica, NY 14011
I will "grab" it and hold it for release at a local caching event on March 8th, 2003.
Bugs are allowed to travel only one state at a time, and the states must share a common border, any bug that skips a state must backtrack to the last continuous state it was in (not necessarily the same cache) and continue from that point. Same holds true if the bug leaves the country.
You are allowed to move your own bug if possible, you are allowed to misdirect someone else's bug also but you are not allowed to "kidnap " or "trash" someone elses bug.
Endpoint for the race is Pheromone Cache near Ripon CA, Waypoint GCBFEA Zipcode search 95366. First TravelBug to log into that cache wins. The GreenAchers are the final judges and will declare the order of arrival.
Winner receives a trophy, and certificates will be awards for other catagories ie: most miles traveled, fewest states visited, most cachers logging the bug etc.
Anyone wanting their bug returned to them after the race needs to include a mailer envelope, prepaid from the above ZipCode. Otherwise the bugs will be re-released from Pheromone with their race directions removed.
If anyone is interested they can check out the thread at Geocaching.com under TravelBug Forum also.
Good luck in the race, and have fun!
