Yeah this tag getting deep into Virginia would mess with the game and stall it out if rule 6 stays. But if rule 6 is not there the tag would still just end up staying in Virginia once it gets here,but at least there would be lot's of active play...

I'm within 30 miles of 4 of the states in the EPH of WV. I can literally walk over to MD from my house. Not that I'm lazy or anything... cough.

Is the mascot required to claim the tag?

example:
Rider A grabs the mascot and then heads to a location 300 miles away
Rider B shows up 10 minutes later, can't find mascot, but posts his grab via iphone (or whatever)


Who would have the tag?

Respectfully disagree--that would advantage either the local, or the one most electronically connected. Keep the mascot idea--then advantage is to the rider, not the poster . . . .

I personally am not a big mascot fan, to me the location is the important thing.

I have to say that, being someone who routinely has a 150-200+mi round trip tag run in NoVA, a mascot is the only way to go.

It's extremely nice to be able to Grab a Tag and then Drop off the new tag sometimes 100mi from home all in one fail swoop, w/o worrying about getting bruced. I think it should be about the ride, not the iPhone.

We usually go with the 1st mascot-free bruced photo gets to place the new tag if the mascot doesn't show in 12hrs or if there's any funny business (ie: cage-related shenanigans).

I think mascot-less tag discourages long-distance tag attempts. Just my 2c.

That is a really good point. I concede that the mascot makes more sense viewed like that.

Rule#1 Revision #2

I think the idea of having the mascot is a very valid one, it also gives a time line and proof that your bike, the mascot and the location jive together. There is the valid point too about someone gabbing the mascot to come back later with their bike to take the tag shot, but that seems like a lot of trouble and the odds that someone grabbed the tag before you and hadn't posted it yet are just as great. That said the game would still continue, if delayed by a bit.

I didn't mean to spark a big debate with my question, I just wasn't clear on whether the mascot was required or not.
When I go tagging I throw my laptop in the trunk so I can post as soon as I can find wifi, but that has not kept me from being bruced 150 or more miles from home. It's all part of the game, I just enjoy you guys showing me interesting new areas, and finding the fun roads getting there.

Game on, go get that slimey snail............

Were it not for the pending shiznitload of snow coming my way, the current tag location would be a nice ride to/from

Rule #6

I guess rule #6 must go, as the poll will end tomorrow morning and the score is 8 for, and 21 against. Vote now or forever hold your tongue!

Rule 6, how about simply a set distance; atleast 25 miles maybe?
