As with previous years there will be alot of
Travel Bugs and Geocoins coming into the event and with so many
around it is very hard to keep track of who dropped them off and
who took them out of the event. So this year we will try something
different. We will collect them preferably on Saturday morning
when you sign in but we will take them at other times of the days
as well and put them in a container and keep them all together and
put them on display on the Sunday night if people want to have a
look at them. We will also provide a list of all the trackables on
a printout for those who want to discover them as well. When you
want to take any of the TB's/GC's out all we ask is that you find
it on the list and just write your name next to the trackable so we
have a record of their coming and going.
