CacheWalker TB Race 2018
« on: January 02, 2018, 12:00:49 pm »
This is the place for all discussion (unless you think your point deserves its own topic) for the
CacheWalker TB Race: Signal on Tour (name TBC)

The TB race will begin at 0:00 January 8th, and will end on 0:00 December 25th.
Participants received a special trackable tag from volunteer reviewers at the 2017 CacheWalker Twixmas Bash. These tags will be placed in caches and the TB which travels the furthest will win!
If you want, you can attach a Signal/frog related item to your TB tag, but there is no requirement to do so.

The Rules:

  • The race officially begins at 0:00 on January 8th 2018. However, TBs can be added to the race at any point after this start date.
  • The race is on until 0:00 December 25th 2018
  • The TB with the most miles on this date will be declared the 2018 Winner at the 2018 Twixmas Bash (apparently there will be one!)
  • CacheWalkers may not move their own tags along.
  • Therefore, TBs must be dropped & collected by different cachers (if moved on by the same cacher only the FIRST jump will be counted).
  • The owner of the TB must not be present with the cacher who's moving it IF they both visit the same cache together for the drop.
  • 'Discover/Visted' logs do not count.
  • CacheWalkers can only have ONE TB each in the race (unless a couple/family are wishing to have their own).
  • If your TB goes missing YOU ARE OUT OF THE RACE - you cannot re-release another trackable tag as part of this year's race.

The official TB-run page for the race is now up and running here - CWTBR 2018

How to join the race:
Please email griffgrof@cachewalker.co.uk or Griff Grof via his profile with the public Trackable ID (TBxxxx), that you find on the 'Details' page of your TB on Geocaching.com.
There no limit for the number of participants.
You can still request to take part after the start date, but the sooner the better/further!


Please name your TB in this format: CW: Signal on Tour (your caching name)

Let the race (and discussion) begin - 3,2,1... GO!

Do we have to attach a superbike to our TB or could it be something more appropriate ie a frog?

I was thinking we could make it optional, the common thing (in the past SuperBikes) is the tag. So, either something appropriate, something else or even nothing.

Unless people think otherwise?  ???

I would make it optional (two of mine lost their bikes!) but a frog would be good :)

I see you have gone with the 8th as a start date  8)

  • CacheWalkers may not move their own SuperBikes along.

Sorry I couldn't make the event, I have been rather pre occupied recently. Have you any objection to me entering a TB into the race, I have a spare one hanging around. No problem if you just want the TB's handed out at the event, I can keep it until next year.

I think thatís fine, plus you could always attach a Signal/frog related item to it anyway (if you want to)  :)
