Laugh Alabama Tag-o-Rama

It started in Ohio
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=321439

Then it moved to Virginia
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=360246

I brought the game to Pennsylvania
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=372674

When I was visiting Alabama, I found out y'all didn't have a game going. Now you do.

This game is intended to give folks an excuse to get out and ride (like ya need one) and learn more about the place you call home. (Alabama Tag-o-Rama google map)

Rules are easy...

#1 - Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose.

#2 - Take the tag to a new location, get the photo and post it here (pre-staging is allowed, see rule #4). Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, maybe a bit of history that can be found down some nice twisties.

#3 - Tag must be findable. Dirt roads are allowed. Please use the Dirty-Diesel Scale (or DDS) when appropriate.

0= nice paved road
1= rough older paved road
2= maintained gravel road
3= maintained dirt road
4= unmaintained dirt or gravel road
5= double track jeep trail

#4 - As of 02/19/09, file photos are permitted for DROPPING a new tag. You still must ride to the tag to grab it. If using a file photo, the same bike that is used for grabbing the existing tag must be in the tag drop photo.

#5 - No whining. If you have a valid sugestion to improve the game, we can listen to that. If you just wanna bitch and moan because you got Bruce'd, do it elsewhere.

Now that the rules are taken care of, here is the first tag.



This dam can be found in northern Alabama. It was the first dam to provide hydroelectric power to Northern AL.

Go find it y'all.

I do hope that somebody from AL will step up to take the reins on this game. I certainly do not want to tell you how to run the game in your state.

The rules that I posted seem to be a good starting point, but are certainly allowed to be changed as needed for your game.

Have fun with it, and I hope to be able to grab a tag or two when I visit next holiday season.

I used to swim just above the damn there. My grandfather used to jump off the falls there, don't think that is allowed anymore. Beautiful area! Hope you enjoyed riding that area. Someone in N. Alabama should be able to get that tag pretty quickly.

Thanks for starting the thread Skyclad.

The Tag

The last time I was at this location, it was completely dry.




Now, somebody go get this tag before GaM does!

Raining again, or should I say pouring, somebody close should get it.

That is the essence of Tag-o-Rama. The ride is the important thing, the tag is secondary.

I was wondering when this might happen. Still have a 950 in pieces in the shop, so I can't play for another week or 2.
