Anyone else in Winnipeg interested in entering the Great Canadian TB Race 2006?



I'm working on a new TB to enter into the race and thought I'd see if anyone wanted to race against me. I'd be willing to gather up the TB's and send them off to Utsman in January.



The Race begins in March 2006.

I'm trying to track down my racer from 2004.



Perhaps we can bulk buy some new tags for racers.

Yes ustman mentions something about special concesions for racers from the 2004 race as it doesn't seem any prizes were awarded as no TB made 10 provinces/Territories in the alotted time for the race.



I did move one racer "Screech" from the 2004 race from Speedy Creek to Winnipeg but at that time the race was over even though Screech TB was the only one to make it to Manitoba. Personally, if no TB's have made it in the alooted time, I think they should extend the race until the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes can be awarded. MHz

The race organizer disappeared for a while and the website stopped updating, there were never any prizes organized and the whole thing just fell apart.



I did help Perpendicular Migration and Little Quad from the 2003 get into Ontario. Perpendicular Migration got 3rd as a result and the owner sent me a TB from his prize loot which ended up becoming my 2004 racer which disappeared in Ontario this year....

My travelbug "Smokey" actually won the 2003 Great Canadian Travelbug race.  It was a toy Fire Truck from New York.  It didn't make all 10 provinces/territories in the allotted time, but it was the only one to hit 7 provinces.  I actually had that travelbug come back to me as someone brought it to an event I attended in Hamilton, ON (after the race).  I then moved it to Winnipeg myself on my next visit, and it subsequently disappeared when MI's Go Fly a Kite cache went missing.



It was kind of funny, because my brother (Marvin_From_Mars) placed second in that race with his East Bound and Down travelbug (a toy semi).



I won an El Diablo Hiking Staff for placing first and it's still one of my prized possessions.  I had them customize it slightly for me to add my junglehair stamp and a canadian flag, as well as having my caching name put on there.

What does it take to get in the race besides a travel bug?



Also where is the start and destination?



Is there a link with more info?

Just need a TB and to get it to the starting point. Link is in MHz's first post. Starting point looks like its Ontario.



On a sidenote, I found my 2004 racer, it was sitting in someones backpack.

It starts in Barrie, Ontario in March, 2006 but the starting cache does not count as an Ontario cache in the race.



The TB goal is to visit as many Provinces and territores as possible before the end of the race in November.

Alright! A TB comes back from the unkown! I've already lost a couple but I guess that proves they may turn up eventually! Are you racing this year ertyu?

I have contacted Utsman and let him know my plans for the new year and he says that he's heard from several groups who are also mass mailing TB's to him. Looks like there certainly will be some pretty good compeition this time round.



As for TB tags, I used my last one for Tear Around TB but I suspect I will be getting some for xmas. If I don't, I'd be happy to order a bunch. MHz

Just to let people know if they have thier Race TB's ready to go, I will be happy to pick them up at the Winter Soiree. Please do not drop your bugs on The Winter Soiree page as the logs need to be clean for the race. Once I've collected all TB's, I will mail them off to Utsman and I'm sure he will be in contact with you all as to where they need to be dropped or handed off to him. Don't foreget to register your TB with Utsman via the Race page! Thanks!

Paula
