Talking Hampton Roads Photo Tag-O-Rama

WELCOME TO THE HAMPTON ROADS TAG-O-RAMA GAME!!!




This is a simple, fun little game that is a great excuse to get out and ride (like I need an excuse) It's part treasure hunt, part trivial pursuit, part race to grab and all fun!!!



Rules are easy...sorta

#1 - Find the TAG reproduce the TAG photo (as best as possible). This is GRABBING the TAG.First person to post the photo of the TAG site WITH their Bike in the photo has the next TAG.


#2 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here. TAG photos must have the Motorcycle in it.

Give a few hints so the players can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties. Posting the actual location, Coordinates, or explicit instructions is fine too. The point of the game is to get out and ride.


#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) not placed on a dirt trail c) not on or within eye site of any Military/DOD Bases. Maintained gravel / dirt roads are OK, but make sure to let folks know that gravel is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't ride full on DS bikes. Base defined as any place that I need to show an ID to access.

#4 -File photos are NOT permitted. (File Photos defined as a photo from the past stored on your computer) Wether you are tagging or grabbing,you gotta ride to play this game.

#5- All tags must be within the Hampton Roads Area. Refer to the map if you unsure as to the where the boundaries are.

#6- The 36 Hour Rule. The Poopy Peanut Rule. This rule is designed to keep the game moving!!! If someone makes a Grab, they have a 36 hour window to post the next Tag. If the Grabber does not post a new Tag within this 36 hour period then the last Tag is back in play for a Grab (Steal).

A)If no one makes a grab after the clock has expired, a New Tag should be placed ASAP by the Exclusive Grabber then it's Game On!

B)If someone makes the grab after the clock has expired and before a New Tag is placed it is considered a Steal, the Next Tag belongs to that person.

#7- Confusion Rule- If all this is confusing to you, PM me or any of the other regular players for definitions / explanations of the Game or just stick around for awhile until you figure out how to play on your own.

#8- No Whining, Pissing or Moaning Rule- Pretty self explanatory

#9- It is just a game rule- Relax....we are out riding motorcycles and taking pictures.....this is nothing to be fired up about.....take a deep breathe....count to 10.....now don't you feel better. When played with a game spirit in my mind and heart....it can almost be fun, you know?

Hampton Roads Defined as:
Virginia Beach
Norfolk
Chesapeake
Portsmouth
Suffolk
Surry County
Isle Of Wight County
SouthHampton County
Franklin
Newport News
Hampton
Poquoson
York County
Williamsburg
James City County
Gloucester County
Mathews County

If it is not on the Map, it is not in play

Thumb First Tag!

The gently arched bridge at the tag was built in 1996 of bent pine and weathered steel. It is the only bridge of its kind in Hampton Roads. For some it may take only a quick peake to figure where this one is. For others it may take alot to crack this nut of a tag. The river that runs under the bridge can be described as a 315 on the compass rose.



**Caution-for anyone going after this tag within the next 24hours, the road was quite flooded due to all the rain, still passable. It would suck however to hit that water at say 45-60mph**

If I thought I'd have half a chance of nailing it, I'd be there. But alas, one of the locals should have that one grabbed within an hour or two.

Man, what a BUNCH of crap. This is making me WALNUTS, really. I was just there, not more than three hours ago. And I was on the bike, too...I wish I would have known.

Give it more gas, if it doesn't solve the problem it will at least end the suspense.

Grab
Off Martin Johnson Rd. in Chesapeake.






Tag

If you gotta have a grab and that's a fact
This one's off of a road called Ballahack
Don't be a wimp just take your time it's just a mile and a half to the second sign
If your off road skills are a "wee" bit rusty avoid this grab you will get dusty

Grab.



On the way out I passed someone on a yellow GS with stainless panniers (a 650 maybe). I turned around and followed for a mile or so down the trail, thinking it was an ADVer going for the grab. Once he noticed I was following him he kind of got spooked and hauled ass away from me. I was just going to tell him I already got the grab lol, was that any of you cats?


Oh and tag:



If you need a grab and it's a little hot
Come on down to this cool spot.
Expensive burgers that are greasy
But real cheap drinks that are freezy.

You can't see the sign but it's Sonic on Cedar road & rt 17 by farm fresh.

I do not believe it will or should, but that is just my opinion and who the heck am I? I think we will leave it to all to decide wether they obide by it or not.

I don't think it is terrible punishment to say "No File Photos", what is the worse that comes from that???? " You mean I have to physically ride my motorcycle to a cool location for a picture?.......but I had already been there 3 years ago...... "

Come on.......this is all about riding right?

Good job UpST8! Congrats on starting this up, and hope it gets more folks riding down that way. Maybe someday we'll do a dual thread cross post with me taking a pic of your bike from the New Kent border and you mine from James City county.

Ya'll better watch out though. We have some serious riders here that have no problem heading out on a 300 mile trip at 3 in the am, so if you know where one is get it ASAP! You have been
warned.
