"Tag, you're it" section
on: May 21, 2013, 08:13:43 PM
I thought we could start a "Tag, you're it" section, as seen on many other forums. Anyone think it's worth starting?

No prizes, just a bit of fun - although we might get some good photos.

It's an excuse (for the missus perhaps  :007:) to get out on the bike to pick up and move a tag, so you can give someone else the same excuse to get out and find your tag.

You ride to a notable place (that someone else can identify) and...
...well see the rules below:

Rules:

1. One active tag thread per country or area (e.g. Bavaria, NW England, Scotland, etc.)

2. Tag thread name examples: NL: Tag - would be for Holland; SCO: Tag - would be for Scotland, etc. 

3. Someone 'sets' the first location.

4. Ride to the current tag and take a photo of your bike at that location - to prove you were there.

5. Ride to a new tag location and take a photo of your bike at that location - again, to prove you were there.

6. Post both the old tag photo and the new tag photo together in the thread to complete the process.

7. Repeat tags are not allowed during the current calendar year.

8. You can't move your own tag.

9. Don't move tags out of the 'designated' area/country.

10. Anyone from out of an area/country can move the tag within that area/country

11. Only use photos taken after the tag was last set. This is a riding contest after all, not a photo contest.

Just wondered if there's any interest in this as there's been no replies  :027:

It can be simply started with a dedicated topic that any one can start but obviously there needs to be a degree of interest.

As soon as I've got my new tyres fitted I'll start a Tag for the Dutch/Belgium/German members (most of the members based in Germany live near the Dutch border anyway.

I have some time to think of a good Tag to start with.  :084:

Would like to have had a 'Tag, you're it!' section under 'Out and About' though - just to make it easier to find.

Interest will pick up when everyone sees what it's all about. :169:

Let me know (by pm) when ready and we'll create the section in "Out and About"   :038:

I like the idea, I am happy to start the Australia tag, may I suggest for Australia that we add state to the tag given the size of our country and that we have members spread around the states, this would give interstate option to pop over the border and move the tag  :164:

eg.  AU:state   (states being   NSW, QLD, VIC, ACT, NT, SA, WA & TAS)
