Mike, I'm not familiar with stargates. If they transport travelbugs through the 
mail, then I would say no. The racers have to be escorted by a geocacher at all 
times. :)

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. -Laurie (Denmother)

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?-Jon

I'm glad you asked...Here are the race rules from the Spring Picnic cache page 
(GC18VM4): TRAVELBUG RACE RULESAll 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 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 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) 
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 race.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.  -Laurie (Denmother)
