    Rules are easy... and most likely wont be followed anyway.

    Tags must remain in Connecticut. Southern/ southwestern CT. South of I-84 and West of the CT River. See map below for region boundaries.

    1. Find the tag and reproduce the photo (as best as possible). Take the tag to a new location preferably more than a mile from the previous post, get the photo and post it here. Give a few hints so the next person can figure out where the tag is located. Try to keep the tags interesting.

    2. Tag must be: Findable and Accessible. Accessible for more than a few hours during the day (i.e. a road is only open 2 hours a day = No Good. Location is only open on weekends = No Good. The road is only open from 8am to 6pm = OK but let people know that when posting the tag.) Maintained gravel and dirt is OK, but make sure to let folks know that 'rough road' is required to get to your tag. We don't want to exclude those who don't like to get dirty. Reminder that tags must be public accessible.

    3. Your bike or a part attached to your bike has to be in the tag picture.
    4. The first person to post a found tag gets to place the next tag. Time stamped photos don't mean anything. If you get a tag, but somebody else posts their picture first, you lose (bruced).

    5. The person who is responsible for posting the next tag has 48 hours to do so with the exception of foul weather (heavy rain, snow, hurricane, etc).
    6. When posting new tag, please note where old tag was located.
    7. One tag at a time. File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game.
    The purpose of this little Connecticut subset TOR game is to get out and ride. Lets have fun and keep the tag moving.

    Here is the first tag. Please note this park entrance closes at dusk.

    hint: the park's namesake pond touches the road this entrance is on.

    Thanks

    The tag run was her initial shake down after picking her up last weekend and catching up on years of neglected maintenance this week.

    Now, I may be able to keep up with you in the tight stuff

    Well I have the tag but I am not allowed to post attachments.
    Is there any other way to get the tagged posted?
