Capture the Flag Ruck
In order to make this fair and keep Jewel from cheating and stacking a team we will be doing a team draft. Each pax will be placed in a hat and pulled one by one to be placed on a team. There will be 10 teams in total. Each team will be assigned one of the 10 segments on the map above. For example team 1 will plant their flag in segment 1 on the map above.
The draft will take place on Monday 6/27 (Broadcast on Zoom, link will be provided)
From the center point (The Raven 3900 Shelbyville Rd.) each team has been assigned a slice of the map. Within that slice, you must place your flag (Flags and maps will be handed out to designated team captains prior to event start).
Start at your Flag!
Your flag cannot be planted until the night of the event, which is where you must start. Your flag must be in a public area. It must be planted in the ground. It cannot be covered, hidden or disguised. It must remain in the original condition as when you received it. Your flag cannot be placed somewhere where it is likely to be removed, or that will put other Pax in serious danger. It is recommended that you scout your location prior to the Ruck to maximize your time rucking.
No Pax may use a phone, GPS watch, or other device to map or otherwise track locations. Team must stay together!
Meet up at your start location with your team at 7:45 pm.
At exactly 8 pm, the Team Captain will take a picture of their paper map with the exact location of their Flag marked with an X. (you will need a sharpie)
This picture must be clear and the X must indicate (Small X please), as close as possible, where the flag is located. The X cannot be so large that it does not show where the flag is located.
The picture will then be sent via slack to #capturetheflag2022, along with the Team Number associated with the map image.
At this point, the game is on.
The Objective: ruck to as many flags as possible, taking a clear picture of the flag showing the Team Number on the tag and at least 2 Team members.
The team that returns to The Raven by 11 pm with the most pictures of flags wins.
BONUS of 1 flag given to team with most donation money to TKO Parkinson’s
Maybe other Bonus’ sent out during event……Stay tuned
Any team that fails to return to the Ainsworth by 11 pm is disqualified.
The winning team will be HANDSOMELY rewarded with GORUCK swag.
