Colorado Front Range Tag-O-Rama

Any interest in a local Tag-o-Rama? I need a reason to go explore some interesting places along the front range this winter. This game is popular back east, not sure why it has not caught on here other then the vast open spaces we have could lead to some long times between tags and frustrations in finding them. I have a possible solution. First,
Rules are easy...

#1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

#2 - Take the tag 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.

#3 - Tag must be a) findable and b) may be placed on a dirt road if a street bike can make it. 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 - Your bike has to be in the TAG picture

#6- The 36 Hour 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).


Here is my two suggestions for making this more fun and easier in our vast open spaces.

Lets restrict the area (for this winter anyway) to the front range and eastern plains. This means no farther west then where the snow builts up. No farther east then Kansas (this allows for some cool indian battle grounds), Fort Collins in the northern border and Pueblo could be the southern border.


I will post the first tag tomorrow. or tonight!

Tag

I enjoy playing TAG on the ST owners forum, its a kick. Obviously its better in warmer conditions. We play in the entire state, but nobody wants to strand the tag in the snow so it just happens to stay East and usually closer to the metro area during the winter. Im in..

How can it be fun if there's not at least an outside chance of dying?

Very Clever pic and Clue. Me and the girlfriend took a ride to the new tag. Her first times on the highway and in city traffic. This game gave us a reason to head that way.



I'll be moving the tag Southeast to the burbs.

I tried. He beat me there by an hour or two, but I'm out of the new one without more info (like coordinates, a name, an address, or at least a decent hint).

Google image search (and maps) is your friend. I didn't know where or what this place was, but when I went to Google, and typed in costume shop near Denver, CO, I found the shop in the first few pictures. I just assumed it was a costume shop, but did have to refine my search from halloween shop to find it.
