I'm gonna say whatever works, but i think a time period of 48-72 hours.....just a thought.....as for the mascot...eh......Seems like it could be fun, but I'm thinking it will get lost or stolen with in short order. Of course whoever loses could be responsible for choosing the next mascot...could make for some fairly comedic mascots lol.

I'll mostly be riding weekends. I get off work at 3 every afternoon, but being the time of year it is, i won't be leaving to go tag hunting in 98+ degree temps

Early Sat and Sun however, I'm all over it.

I like the idea of a mascot. It would give us all something to sort of look after and be defensive of!

While we are waiting for someone to score my TAG why not talk about what kind of mascot would be good. Or do you just want the next person to dream it up solo.

What do other TOR's use. My thought is that if it looks too cool it will get stolen.

I think it should be small enough to be hidden and I once had a key chain that had something like this on it.
If this is found please return to owner by calling 1-800-GSA- 1200.

The only one I have heard of getting stolen was one in the NATOR (North America). Someone placed it in a flower bed at Coney Island.

Here are some mascots from some other games:

Don't tell me this tag is going to stand until Saturday and I'll have to take my first REALLY long ride to go retrieve the tag?

It's over 3 hours each way for me. I've always wanted to go there, but I hate riding slab and would have to take the back farm roads and smaller highways to get there which will take even longer...

AND remember that who ever scores this TAG gets to pick the mascot.

That would be so cool to be the one to create our mascot and set it out for the first time.

I wish I could go get the tag, buy my first chance won't be until July 4th weekend

It's a fair piece down the road for me as well. (2-2.5hrs one way)

As for the mascots, I'd say something like a toy (like the suggested motorcycle). Something that we don't have to worry about being in the weather too.

Okay, who is free on Saturday? (June 27)

I think my kids may be going to visit their mom this weekend, which means I am free to RIDE! It will be hot, but it means I might finally get to visit GZ and pick out the new mascot. I would love to have someone to ride along with me since this will be my longest trip to date...

I'd like to make the trip but unfortunately have to work instead. I came *so* close to riding up there to get it Sunday, but it was just too freakin hot!

Yeah but for a ride like that I'm sure it'll get started earlier in the day!
