If you think you can keep the game going then I say go for it. But normally the game dies out quickly and Barry is the only one playing.

I know you guys thought last years format was good but it died out also. I saw on another forum that guys were posting up GPS coordinates off their phones or taking pictures of their GPS screens showing Northings and Eastings and using that as a tag game. They then put up a picture of their bike at that location. The good thing about that is it can just be a scenic road somewhere, not necessarily needing to have a landmark in the picture. Just a thought.

In the 3 years I have played we never made it to the end of the season, and my alter ego, Ray/Vin seems to be mostly gone.

I am open to whatever. Hell, if it makes things easier, we can remove the use of the gallery for tags.

I'd like to see the game back, even if I can't participate.

Didn't we do away with the site based gallery for last seasons game?

Last year we still required the hosting to be on site for most of the game.  By the time we talked about changing that, the game had petered out anyway.

Yeah, I wouldn't guarantee any variation of a tag game wouldn't die out here over time. Last years arrangement couldn't get any easier for the most part and it still died.

So who would actually participate in this? What format does the majority like?

I personally like to ride to the actual tag location. It might slow the game down but I think it's more fun. I like the GPS idea because it can get you onto some nice twisties and scenic areas where there are no landmarks to take a picture of. Maybe it can be a combination of landmarks and GPS coordinates. If there is a landmark, great, otherwise post the coordinates. Or we can ditch it for this year?

I think it has to be both. Limiting it to just the GPS, makes only people who can ride with GPS able to play.

Yeah I agree, but you can put the coordinates into google and it will give directions to get there.

I think I have gotten the drive to win out of my system.  Now I just want to know that on any day I feel like a ride I'll have a flimsy excuse to do so.  There are only so many times I can go to VT to get cheese, though I am thinking that a smoked meat or sausage ride could be in the cards.
