|Each participant will be given a treasure map, and a gpx route (the gpx is optional and not necessary to play).
The map and gpx will have on them 5 primary destinations, plus some bonus locations as well as Cache pots.
These locations will have either a color-coded chip-pot or a geo-cache pot. The chip-pots will
have in them chips with a number on each. Each player will collect one chip from each pot. Only one
of each color can be submitted so taking more doesnt help. Each number will represent a predesignated
playing card that will be revealed at the awards party later. Participants must collect at
least 5 chips to have a hand. If chips are attained from the map's "bonus" locations as well, that player
will have more than 5 cards from which to choose his 5-card hand.
For those that do choose to use a gps capable device, there will also be geo-cache pots to discover. These pots will have in them one single ticket good for schwag goodies donated by one of our great sponsors. Coordinates for those locations will also be on the treasure map. THIS IS NOT A RACE!! This event can be started whenever you choose, from wherever you choose. Once you have your map early saturday morning, you can strategize your ride any way you like. Ride with a group of friends, or go it alone. Its up to you and there is no rush. The only pre-requisite with regards to schedule is the finish. All participants must be at Brewligion in Murietta at 1:00pm on Saturday, August 11 to claim their winnings.
Please print the waiver below, fill it out, and hand it (along with your money) to one of the ride-leaders on your next goat ride. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for a ticket. Your name will be recorded, you will receive an entry ticket, ...and youre good to go!
