Northern VA Tag-o-rama!
 
Here are the rules that I ripped off of the VA tag-o-rama which ripped 'em off of Ohio... Hey, everything on the internet is free for the taking right?:deal


Rule #1. If you're new, watch how the game is played for awhile before jumpin' in cause I ain't explainin' everything to ya'

Rule #2 One tag at a time and county roads are acceptable (no dirt) but the tag must be findable. Include clues in your tag. Don't make the clues useless, not everyone is a Jeopardy contestant wanna be. No whining and no file photos.

Rule #3 All tags must be within the following counties: Loudoun, Prince William, Fauquier, Stafford, Arlington, Fairfax, City of Fredericksburg, City of Alexandria.

There are plenty of folks here that will help you understand the rules.
*** These rules are subject to change***

I think this tag requires a bit more of a clue.

Good job guys! Off to a great start! Wish I had the time to come up and get it. Maybe next time...:thumb

I didn't figure it would take long to get a NOVA game off the ground. Once I finish my honey-do list, I'm in the saddle. :clap

Motocox 04-04-2009 09:14 AM

And where exactly is NOVA? What are the boundaries? Is Leesburg in? Fredericksburg? To answer my own question I say yes and yes.
I would say the following counties: Fairfax (Arlington, Alexandria...), Loundoun, PW, Fauquier, Stafford and Fredericksburg.

cool zone! need the play field designated tho...
 
from our (richmond) experiences in "what's in bounds', you really might need to have the definition as to the particular zone you guys want to limit this to. the valley boyz, hampton clan, richmond mongrals, and state freaks all have defined bounderies to keep whining to a minimum....which we call rule # 3 (no whining)....:rofl

best to lay those bounderies on the T-o-Rama intro page before they get tested, you can always stretch them later.....

best of luck, I (and I'm sure lots of n'er-do-wells) look forward to yet another zone for targets....:rofl :rofl :rofl :rofl
cool!!!!

Motocox 04-04-2009 03:53 PM

I'm not going to make it to the saddle. Stupid beer got in the way. :D

Sounds good to me, should it just be the city of Fred. or all of Spotsylvania county?

Motocox 04-05-2009 10:26 AM

I'm thinking just the city of f-burg. Lots of good tags in the town. I never really considered spotsy to be part of NOVA.

FOXedupONE 04-05-2009 11:38 AM

Is DC and within beltway area of MD in too?:dunno How about Warrenton area? Is there enough good riding in NOVA to make a game out of it? I would think that whenever someone up there get's on a bike they'd want to get away from NOVA. But who knows the Richmond folks seem to have fun in the city playing and commuting.

zcooney 04-05-2009 02:35 PM

Added county restrictions... maybe add DC too? What cha think?

SteveOnTheWay 04-05-2009 04:07 PM

Here is the thing about DC, the traffic is terrible. Can't imagine trying to stop along the road and snap a photo w/o getting run over:becca

Tag, you're it!
 
I found Steve's tag. It's Beaverdam Reservoir, which although it's in Loudon County, serves as the Reservoir for Fairfax City. Riding out to this spot was both my and my Versys' first experience riding on gravel. We both made it unscathed.:clap
