Community Volunteer Tag

Recommended Posts

So, I got a community volunteer tag from someone at an event. What should I do with it? Is it like a standard travel bug that I give a goal and set free, or something different?

 

Thanks!

It would work like any trackable item.  Was it a gift?  Is it activated?  You can see if it's activated by doing a trackable search.  If it's an unactivated gift to you, and you wish to be able to log it, you first activate it.  I keep some tags or coins that I was given by Lackeys or volunteers, and I don't activate the tags or coins, because they won't be in play.  It's up to you.

It wasn't activated, I'll have to think about what to do with it...

Thanks!

Cool gift from a lackey.

These are actually distributed by Community Volunteers as gifts (not by Lackeys, who have different awesome tags to bestow on worthy geocachers).

 

I enjoy giving out unactivated tags at events, as swag in caches I hide or find, or to geocachers I meet on the trail.  The recipient is welcome to hold the tag in their collection, activate it and send it out in the world like a travel bug, or pass along the tag to someone else.
