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 Now I bring Tag-o-Rama to Maryland. 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. Maryland Tag-o-Rama Map can found here. 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. 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. Explore all of Maryland, and post your results here! Repeats are discouraged, but not unacceptable. #2.a - New tag is to be placed within 48 hours of the grab. #3 - Tag must be placed on or near a legal road. Single track is out, but dirt and gravel roads are good. Keep it big bike friendly, and let people know if the they will be getting dirty to reach the tag. #3.a - Tagging within Washington DC city is off limits for this game. #4 - File photos are NOT permitted. You gotta ride to play this game. #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. The person born in this house was in the US Army, but decided the north was being a bit aggresive. He was injured and captured at Gettysburg. He was released in a prisoner exchange, but died shortly afterwards. The house can be found near where a river named for a rider's least favorite forest animal meets a river from the Empire State. I started the Maryland Tag-o-Rama because it is great for getting noobs to start posting, it encourages riding and learning about your state, and becuase I wanted more tags to steal. I do not want to be the Maryland game boss, seeing that I am not from your state. I leave it up to Maryland inmates to decide on whether to change any or all of the rules for your state. Have fun.
