Geocache Description:

[LV] Slepnis ir regular izmera lock & lock karbina, kas atrodas bijušaja motobola trase. Slepnis satur logbooku, zimuli, zimulasinamo ka ari GC pirmajam atradejam.
Motobols ir spele, kura piedalas divas komandas. Katra komanda ir 10 speletaju, divi mehaniki un treneris. Speles laika laukuma katrai komandai atrodas pieci speletaji – cetri brauceji un viens vartsargs. Pedejais ir bez motocikla. Speletaji bumbu drikst parvietot ar kajam vai galvu, bet vartsargs to var nemt ari rokas. Bumbas apkartmers ir 119-126cm, savukart svars - 900–1200 grami. Nakts macos bumbai ir jabut baltai.
Motobola laukums ir identisks futbola laukumam, tacu ta segums parasti ir maksligs (noblietetas smiltis, asfalts u.c.). Maksimalais laukuma izmers ir 110m x 75m, bet minimalais - 85m x 45m. Laukums tiek atzimets ar baltu 12-24cm platu liniju. Ir atlauts lietot ari citas spilgtas krasas, ja balta nav pieejama. Laukumam, 2m no sanu linijas un 5m no gala linijas, ir jabut ierobežotam ar margam, lai gadatu par skatitaju un dalibnieku drošibu. Motobola vartu izmers ir 7.32x2.44 (tads pats ka futbola). Nakts macos laukumam ir jabut apgaismotam; ja apgaismojums nav pietiekams, organizatora klubam viesiem ir jamaksa kompensacija. Ja oficialais macs tiek atcelts apgaismojuma del, tad speli automatiski zaude organizatoru klubs.

Motociklu tilpums ir atlauts lidz 250cm3, maksimalais motocikla garums nedrikst parsniegt 2,2m, bet svaram ir jabut robežas no 70 lidz 120 kg (bez degvielas). Motocikli nedrikst tikt aprikoti ar liekam detalam, kuras var traucet citiem speles dalibniekiem vai ari sabojat bumbu. Izpludes trokšna limenis nedrikst parsniegt 98db, bet maksimalais stures platums var but 70cm.
Spele ir sadalita cetros periodos, katrs ilgst 20 minutes. Partraukums starp periodiem ir 10 minutes. Pec otra perioda beigam komandas mainas pusem. Spele uzvar ta komanda, kura ir savakusi vairak punktu.
[ENG] Cache is regular size lock & lock lunch box wich is placed in motoball track. Cache contains log book, pencil, pencil sharpenter and GC for FTF
In the fine tradition of horse soccer and fireball football, Motoball is yet another adaptation of the Beautiful Game. What could be more fun than playing football while riding a motorcycle? Played on a gravel surface field similar in size to a football pitch, the game consists of four, 20-minute quarters. Each team has four motorcycle riding field players and one keeper who sadly is no longer allowed to ride a motorcycle too because this proved to be a bit too psychotic for the sport’s own good. The teams also have a coach and a mechanic with the mechanic being arguably the most important part of the equation.
What about the ball? Glad you asked. In Motoball the ball is about twice the size of a regular football and it weighs one kilo. It may be kicked or headed, but for the love of God don’t even think about using your hands or trying to carry it while you pop a wheelie or jump over a tank filled with sharks. The two referees – one at each half of the field – and their assistants will whistle you for an infraction faster than you can put down your kickstand.
A poke around the Internet reveals that Motoball does have its fans. The game reportedly dates back to the first World War. These days the sport has quite a following in parts of Germany and Russia, and you would be foolish to overlook France when it comes to international play.
