The Great PodCacher Travel Bug® Migration – Take 3

Summary: Listeners all over the world will start a simple travel bug, a TB tag attached to any container with a log sheet inside. They will be named in a standard way and have a standard document/log sheet inside. The TBs will start to travel, gathering names on the log sheet. The goal will be to gather as many names as possible, and then travel to one of several destination caches (Tourist Spots). The winning TB will be chosen by raffle from the ones who make it to one of the specified destination caches by the deadline (January 1, 2010). After the winning TB is chosen, another winner will be chosen (by dice roll) from the names on the log sheet connected to that travel bug!

Prizes: The person who started the winning TB will get a Team PodCacher GEOCOIN. The name picked from inside the travel bug will be able to choose a prize from the current prize vault.

Raffle tickets for the drawing will be awarded to Travel Bugs as follows:

  • Arrival at a TGPTBM tourist spot / destination cache (see bookmark list) by deadline - 1 ticket
  • For every 25 names on the log - 1 additional ticket
  • Visiting any of the other TGPTBM tourist spot caches (see bookmark list) - 1 additional ticket
    1. Releasing a Travel Bug:
      Step 1: Create your travel bug by attaching a TB tag to a container of your choice (i.e. a film canister)
      Step 2: Print the log sheet to put inside your TB
      Here are 2 possible PDF files: Log Sheet and Log Sheet Mini
      Step 3: Name your travel bug as follows: "PodCacher TB Migration by YOUR CACHING NAME"
      Step 4: Release your TB and watch it go!

      So, in order to win a prize, you could START one of the TBs, or you could make sure that you sign your name on one of their logs.

      Contest deadline: January 1, 2010

      Additional Rules:

    2. Former TB Migration participants can continue to play (your on-line goal must be updated)
    3. In general, TBs must travel alone, not in groups
