START DATE : APRIL 15Th 12:01 am - September 15th 2011 1200 midnight precisely
Motorcycle Tag came out from Toronto, Ontario by a guy visiting Vancouver, named Gene (Lightcycle) a few seasons ago ..
“There's one in SoCal that's been on-going for 3 years. I'm from Toronto just visiting Vancouver, and we started our game in April. In 4 months, we're close to 100 Tags…
I just logged on here to find a location to a picture that was posted which I thought was in Vancouver. I thought it would be funny to "tag" the picture while I was on this road trip. When folks started talking about our game, someone suggested I start one here, so this is it!”
Well it took off with close to 30 players chasing around that one tag, it went from Squamish all the way out to the corners of Chilliwack. It was a rush of a game but we found once it went east, the people in the west weren’t out there due to distance and vice versa. It became a virtual tennis game who could keep it in their side of the Fraser longer….
During the season 2 game we decided to split the Fraser River and have two tag games running, basically east vs west, two tags running at all times one on each side of the river. We created bonus points if you were able to get over to the other side of the river and grab their tag. It made for a good competitive game but it was still every man for themselves. Good idea but still missing something…
Now we are at season 3, I decided to change it up a bit and create something really interesting. I was thinking why not make it a more social team sport. I liked to play the game capture the flag when I played paintball. I wanted to incorporate that into the rush of this game. How about have 4 teams with 4 tags running at once. You would have your tag in your boundary…similar to a Flag. You would now have your team going after 3 “Flags” in the other boundary areas. Whatever team posts those Tags up first gets the points. The more teammates/bikes you have in the tag picture the higher your points….. Capture the tag was born.
