Below, you will see several different files that can be used independently to find the chip pots. Depending on the navigational
tools that you have available, ..and your desire to mess with them.. :), choose the one that works best for you.
On your map of choice, you will find 5 primary destinations, plus a bonus location. These locations will have a color-coded chip-pot. The chip-pots will have in them chips with a number on each that looks like this:
Each player will collect one chip from each pot. Only one of each color can be submitted so taking more doesnt help. Please honor this rule of play so others behind you can enjoy the same game you are. These pot locations will be un-manned, but marked by a crepe-paper party streamer. Spot the streamer, walk up to that bad-boy, and look at your toes. ...HEY NOW!! :) Each chip-number will represent a predesignated playing card that will be revealed at the awards party later. Participants must collect at least 5 different-colored chips to have a hand. If chips are attained from the map's "bonus" location as well, that player will have more than 5 cards from which to choose his 5-card hand.
After you have claimed at least 5 chips, bring them to the Goat Party at Brewligion at 1:00, and exchange them for their numbered playing-card counterparts.

THIS IS NOT A RACE!! This event can be started whenever you choose, from wherever you choose. This event officially starts at 7 AM (pots will be there FOR SURE), tomorrow (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.
If you would like to ride with a group, there are a few already scheduled. These will all be "no goat left behind" rides,
...with an emphasis on fun!

I want to extend a very big "thank you" to the Goats that helped make this event possible: Matt Crowther, Glen Kratz, Ryan Strathearn, Jack Beasley, and Pat Hurter. It takes a herd of goats to kill a bear.
