Can we use stargates???? There are several in the US. Kansas and Texas have 
one. They transport TBs to another stargate at the owners expense. Crazy way to 
get miles!!

  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

      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 
      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 table.
      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 
      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) 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 race.
      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.
