Laugh Mid-Atlantic Tag-o-Rama

I am thinking of starting up a new Tag-o-Rama for the Mid-Atlantic region. This would include - Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, North Carolina & Washington DC.
The rules are as follows-

#1 - Find the tag and mascot (The Ornery Orange) and reproduce the photo with the mascot involved somewhere (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag with the mascot gets to place the next tag. That person will have 48 hours to post the next tag, if they haven't by that time (weather will be taken into consideration, ie. 20" of snow), then it can be grabbed by anyone else, and they may post the new tag.

#2 - Take the tag (and mascot) to a new location, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person 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. Check the official map to be sure you new tag location has not been done already. Repeats are not permitted.

#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) not placed on a dirt road. Maintained gravel is 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 like to get dirty.

#4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.

#5 - No whining. If you have a valid sugestion to improve the game, we can listen to that. If you just wanna bitch and moan because you got Bruce'd, do it elsewhere.

#6 - If the tag does not move in 168 hours from the drop-off time, it may be grabbed by the same tagger who dropped it off, and moved to a new location, ad infinitum.
This will heretofore be called the P.W.Y. Rule, or Play With Yourself Rule.

The Mid-Atlantic Tag-O-Rama Map is here - http://goo.gl/maps/2gj7



First tag to be posted soon (weather permitting).

Would hate too see tag get stuck in one state to long, maybe Drop tag in different state than tag was Got in?
That would keep your game from settling close to home and guarantee a true mid-atlantic game.

Cool2 Rule#6

Maybe we'll give rule #6 a test ride? If the tag starts to stall a lot then it's history. The rule would definitely encourage longer trips, instead of block hopping.
I will be posting the new tag as soon as I can make a path through the snow on my street.

In lieu of rule six I think you need to define the geographical limits better. A tag in Erie PA or Abingdon VA would probably sit for weeks. - unless you don't mind that for your game.

There's no reason this tag game has to move fast, it's not a "commuter tag" but to head off border bouncing, instead of different state, maybe 60 and up mile moves. Just a thought... PA is BIG compared to D.C.
This game looks good. Due to probable day trip distances maybe intro a mascot (not unlike the NorAm egg) that does represent the tag, with a first "bruced" gets it if no new tag is posted/claimed within a week of the posted 2nd place.

Additional Rules:

#4 Tag mascot (i.e. blockhead, chicken, etc.) is required to clame the tag. Please post your "bruced" pictures even if the tag mascot has already been taken. Tag claims must be posted within 12 hours of the 1st "bruced" photo. In the even no official tag claim is made within 12 hours, the person with the 1st "bruced" photo gets the tag and the honor of choosing the next Tag mascot. (does that make any sense??)

#5 Read the Rules, understand the intent of the game. Quality not Quantity. If you want to tag a stop sign at the corner of "I'm impatient" and "Hurry Up" roads just to up the tag count, play a local game instead.. There are no rules that say you can't play more than one game at a time, so if this one sits for a week or two while the stars align for a big move, then so be it.. Obviously don't sit on it for weeks on end if you have no plans to actually take it somewhere though.

Rules may be modified or added later if it is determined that they are needed to promote movement of the tag.
The above "Rules"have been blatantly lifted from Blinkerfluid.

I would agree that rule 6 could be problematic. I do like the idea of a minimum mileage rule though. That would make the tag move a bit without requiring it move to a new state.

Looks like your game is getting "legs"
Have fun.

Slithering

Yes Jax
Legs move a bit faster than slithering along it seems. I just hope these legs take-off like the MD Tag has.

Hey, where'd everybody go?

It seems legs are not too much faster than the slime trail.
Do I have to grab my own tag and move it somewhere easier to reach??

If it weren't for my extreme distaste for riding east of Fred-neck, I would make the grab man. Then put it back west...

Do you still have your K75S man? I am currently getting my 87 K75C back on the road.

I'd go after it if I could ever get more than a 1/2 day off.

Nut nest

The million dollar question is where will the next nut nest be?
