Virginia Tag O Rama

That's right folks, Tag O Rama has come to Virginia and it starts today.

You've got to play to win, just like Powerball but way better. You will not win millions of dollars, you life will not be ruined, your friends will not abandon you, and your SO won't plot how to make it "look like an accident" so he/she can take up with the pool boy or baby sitter.

I shamelessly ripped off this game, right down to the rules from the good folks in Ohio. Luckily the guys who invented it are better riders than business men. All we've got to pay them is a cold beer once in a while. What a bargain!

If you haven't done so already, please read up on the Farnsy's Ohio Tag O Rama thread. It's just over in the Central Forum, but why not do the easy thing and click the link.


Rule #1. If you're new, watch how the game is played for awhile before jumpin' in cause I ain't explainin' everything to ya'

Rule #2 One tag at a time and county roads are acceptable (no dirt) but the tag must be findable. Include clues in your tag. Don't make the clues useless, not everyone is a Jeopardy contestant wanna be. Some Virginia folks like Freak, Gramps, PhilSpace, Sherpa and others know just about every nook and corner of this state and do serious miles so don't expect a tag be open for long. No whining and no file photos.

There are plenty of folks here that will help you understand the rules.
*** These rules are subject to change***

See, only 2 rules

Are you ready to play?

Here's the tag.

This is located on an aptly named street in a county that could be named after a place in England. That really narrows it down for Virginia, doesn't it?

OK, the county could also be named after a place in Germany.

By turning off of the main street, a route number that adds up to 9, you'll find the building on the right.

The building was formerly a church and a Civil War field hospital. Again, that really narrows it down for Virginia. It's lawn is used for concerts, civic events, and weddings.

The town where the tag is located is in the middle of everything, and is named in honor of the estate of a native son who went on to great fame in Kentucky. The guy was a badass, even engaging in a duel that resulted in a hit on him and the other guy.

You go out and find it, take a picture of your bike in front of it, and then you get to post the next tag of something someplace in Virginia and give some clues.

I think you can figure it out.

What county could be from both England and Germany?

After that it's easy.

But there's no Hamilton County in Virginia.

There is a Hamilton County Ohio though.

So, I guess it's possible over on their thread.

Don't worry, it is a great game and even if it's played down south.... they will still "get it" sooner or later. It's sure to get you out riding more often.
