In the real world of TB's it is legal to move your own, why not here?

Good point, but no, you can't hold or move your own entrant. I'll update the
race rules to reflect that.

So you can't hold or hide other entrants, but I see no rule stating I can't
hold or move my own entrant. Is it safe to assume that this would be
considered fair?

I'm glad you asked...Here are the race rules from the Spring Picnic cache
page (GC18VM4):

All Travel Bugs to be entered in the race must be new; that is, they must
not have been dropped into any cache prior to the 2008 SLAGA Spring Picnic
Event cache, so they will all have the picnic as a common starting point.
Geocoins can be entered in the race and will be treated as Travel Bugs.
All racing TBs and Geocoins (Entrants) should be dropped into the 2008 SLAGA
Spring Picnic cache page prior to May 3rd. You can have as many Entrants as
you like. There WILL NOT be travel bug tags available at the picnic. Tags
can be purchased at
Groundspeak.com. A limited number of tags can also be purchased for $6.00
each before the event by contacting JC_Geo, Wheelinb, or L Frank.
All Entrants MUST be turned into the Travel Bug Race box at the Spring
Picnic no later than 1:00 PM. Don't take them to the travel bug trading
Volunteers wanting to pick up race Entrants should sign in with TB race
coordinators (JC_Geo and wheelinb) by 2:30 PM. Preference will be given to
volunteers who do not have an Entrant in the race. At 3:30, all Entrants
will be distributed to the volunteers who have agreed to move them to their
first cache.
Owners of the Entrants in the race are expected to show good sportsmanship
with regard to other Entrants. This means that if you find another
TB/Geocoin which is entered in the race, you will take no action that will
unreasonably hinder the Entrant's movement. This includes, but is not
limited to, picking up and holding the Entrant or placing it in an
exceptionally difficult or rarely visited cache.
The race will end on December 1, 2008. The standings will be posted on the
SLAGA web page (www.geostl.com <http://www.geostl.com/> ) approximately
monthly, and at the end of the race.
There is a $2.00 fee per Entrant that will be used for the prizes. The more
Entrants racing, the larger the prizes.

Prizes to be awarded at SLAGA Christmas Party.
Entrant which logs the most miles. TB/coin must still be active at end of
Entrant which logs the least miles. TB/coin must still be active at end of
First Entrant to go MIA.

Hey All, don't forget to order travelbug dogtags if you need 'em for the
SLAGA Travelbug Race. The race will start at the Spring Picnic on May 3.
Your tags will need to be activated and attached to your racers when you
bring them to the picnic. The entry fee is $2 per racer, and it is open to
all previously uncirculated TBs and geocoins. Prizes for the winners will be
awarded at this year's Christmas Party.
