In other words, if you rode to it in an afternoon just to place a tag, somebody else will likely ride there to get it.
As for the mascot, sure, why not. It will get lost. But we could try and keep up with it.
What does having a mascot do to the "first to post gets the tag" rule?
Just my $0.02
Oh yeah, while I'm contributing I like a 36 hour time limit.
Read some of the other tag games, such as the "Valley Dual Sport Tag-o-rama" which is the first one I started following on here that used a mascot as the game got moving. Whoever gets the mascot gets the tag, no matter who posts first. Mascots are hidden in pipe, under a brick, in the dirt, behind a tree, etc. and usually work mostly for off road or remote tag locations.
Think I am about to head out for a short sunset ride....
