What: Event to launch 2014 BBH TB Race
When: 1st January 2014 2:30pm til it gets too cold!
Where: Brownlows cafe
Who: BBH members and anyone else mad enough or wants cake that badly!
Why: I blame Daves Piglings!
We plan to meet at the cafe at 2:30pm (doing some caches before and after) have a nice piece of cake and swap TBs ready for the start of the race. The cafe closes at 4pm.
Here's the description and rules for the race: This race is for members of the Beds, Bucks and Herts gecocaching community and anyone else who wants to join in and bribes me with cake. As a group we seem to have become more than a little cake obsessed. I thought it would be fun to have a cake themed travel bug race for 2014. There will (hopefully!) be special cake themed trackables, but these are not compulsory :) Rules that were added by race organizer
1. The race runs from 1st January 2014 and ends on 31st December 2014. Any mileage before or after those dates will not be counted.
2. Trackables must remain in the UK (Channel Islands, Scottish Islands, Scilly Isles, Isle of Man are all ok too).
3. Dipping (one cacher taking the tb to multiple caches) is not allowed. Only the first visit by each cacher will count towards the mileage.
4. There are extra bonus miles to be awarded at the end of the race as follows: a) for each picture on your tb page of your tb with real cake will gain a bonus 10 miles* b) for each visit to a cache with a cake in the cache name will gain a bonus of 10 miles*
5. You may reuse an old travelbug for the race, but it does need to be attached to something cake themed or have a cake themed name.
6. The trackable can start anywhere in the UK, it doesn't have to be in the BBH region (but you might want to remember the bonus miles for cake caches!).
7. Judges decisions are final and may be influenced by cake bribes delivered at local BBH events.... Have fun and plenty of cake! :)
* By attending the event (and uploading a photo to the TBs page) you can earn these bonus miles!
