+cincol Posted January 7, 2009 Share Posted January 7, 2009 (edited) The current "Around the World in 80 Ways" Race is almost at an end. I was thinking about some ideas for the next race. Let's open a discussion and see what develops out of the ideas. My current idea is a race from a particular city in SA to another particular city in SA - BUT here is the "kinkel in die kabel". The TB must visit at least 2 other continents prior to arriving at the destination city. Bonus points will be awarded for each additional country beyond the mandatory 2. Scoring will be kept as simple as possible. Scoring 1. For every cache it’s placed in 1 point 2. For every 50 miles [as per GC miles] traveled 1 point 3. For posting a picture 2 points 4. For crossing US or Aus state/SA or Canadian provincial lines 2 points 5. For crossing international borders 3 points 6. For attending an event cache 3 points 7. For being placed during a FTF 4 points 8. For visiting specific countries mentioned prior to start 5 points Notes 1. Points for caches visited will only be awarded once for a cache. Once a bug visits a cache, any subsequent visits to that cache will not count for points. 2. Points for mileage will be based on the mileage counter on each bug’s page. 3. Points for posting pictures will only be awarded once per photo per cacher. One cacher posting multiple pictures will not gain additional points, though it is encouraged if the poster desires to help document the travels. 4. Points for crossing state/provincial lines or international borders will be based on a straight line model, using the travel bug’s map. No matter how a cacher travels as they carry the travel bug, a straight line between cache A and cache B will be used to determine which state lines are crossed. 5. Points for attendance at an event is only awarded once per event. 6. Points for being placed during an FTF requires that you be the FTF on the cache in question. Due to the increase in smaller caches, being FTF does not require that you leave the travel bug at the cache, only that you are the first to find it while the travel bug is in your possession. 7. Any bugs "dipped" in and out of caches will forfeit those points. ie: NO dipping will be allowed at all. This also applies to multiple moves by any 1 cacher. A bug may only be moved ONCE by any cacher. An owner therefor may move his own bug, but only once. Any ideas/suggestions to add? Anybody interested in administering the race?
