Thread: Capture the Flag TB Contest

  1. #1

    Default Capture the Flag TB Contest

    We have a Travel Bug contest going on over on GC.com. The competition is Northern New England (ME,NH,VT) versus Southern New Hampshire (MA,CT,RI). As a member of the North team, I'm looking for support from any Maine cachers who can help us keep the bugs moving northward into Maine, or who can help us grab bugs out of the South whenever possible.

    The contest is non-commercial, and being done for fun only. It will last until the end of October, 2005. Complete details about the contest can be found at http://www.newenglandgeocaching.com/capflag.php. There is also a rather lengthy discussion going on in the GC.com New England forum.

    If anybody wishes to help, please keep an eye out for any of the Capture the Flag TBs which are making their way around New England. There is currently one in Maine already, and I plan on pushing several more up that way as quickly as I can.

    RULOST2? and I are making arrangements to pick up a Capture the Flag TB in New Hampshire next week on behalf of the "North" team. It needs to get to Acadia park for extra points. Anyone I can hand it off to in the central Maine/Bangor area who can get it there?

    Here's the TB listing:

    It has to get to the "Picnic at Somes Sound" cache on MDI:

    Thumbs up I can help out

    If you can get it here, I can get it there. I know right where that cache is so it would be easy to drop it. This plan will work if you are coming during the week. I am supposed to be out of town next weekend. If it's next weekend I can place it the following week. I will be in Poland camping. So we could meet somewhere else. Let me know.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Default Fun!

    It's a ways away, but it is possible that when I travel to Vermont this summer that I could move this TB to the Vermont bonus cache (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache...c-018ade4b6eb5). I have friends in the area of the cache that I am hoping to visit while in Vermont. I'll keep an eye on the TB and see if it will work out.

    My work is taking me to West Lebanon N.H. for 11 days first of June. Plan to be in the White River Junction area for that time. Will do what I can for the north.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    The Capture the Flag TB's need to keeep moving to gain points, so any plans for a trip to Vermont later in the summer are iffy.

    Ideally I can drop it in a cache here in central Maine, and have someone ready to pick it up and move it to MDI. The main concern is to NOT let someone from "The South" grab it.

    Brad - We'll be back Thursday, but if you're heading out for the weekend, perhaps we could meet at the I95 cache for a hand-off? Or somewhere like that?

    Right now, the only TB in a South cache is in Connecticut. Anyone going south that can grab the bug?

    Talking One for the north

    Maybe we should cement one to " Cindy " That might prevent someone from the south taking it over. hehehe

    I've made arrangements to pass "Cindy" on. The person I'm getting the Capture the Flag TB from is named Cindy, and wants the block! LOL!

    Thanks for the help, everybody!

    On Friday I dropped two of the bugs near Bath. One of the bugs has already been picked up by (what I think is) a North team supporter, but the other bug needs a ride towards the Bonus Cache on MDI.

    Hubby and I are planning on going up to Quebec City in June... maybe we could get it and drop it off in Jackman or such.
