When dropping off trackables please:

1. Put the individual TBs into a ziploc baggie (replace if in bad shape)

2. Print out the bug sheet for each TB, insert into baggie

3. Put a small slip of paper inside the baggie and Give it one of several mission labels listed below for ease of sorting - WHERE the TB WANTS TO GO!! If it wants a particular state, list that as well.

4. You will receive 1 ticket for each TB you bring, this will allow you to take the same number of TB’s from the trackable area on Saturday.

5. As you leave the TB area: You will be asked to turn in 1 ticket for each TB you are taking.

6. Those not having brought TB’s will get the opportunity to pick up a limited number TB’s after the CITO on Saturday until all TB’s are dispensed.

7. DISCOVER LOGS of TB’s Due to the high volume of trackables and the cachers expected, there will be a limited number of large TB’s set aside whose owners have requested "Discover logs" only. These will be available for pick up after the CITO on Saturday at the owner’s discretion.
