†††† The purpose of this program is to promote visitation and friendly competition at the chapter level. Any and all chapter "participants", to include North Carolina District and Region N teams, may participate in the capture of the Tarheel Travelerís Plaque.
††† A minimum of four (4) North Carolina GWRRA members, representing their home Chapter, is required to capture the Tarheel Travelerís Plaque. With a 24 hour notice, a District Team or a Region N Team member (maximum of 1) may stand in for you as a member; however, if the District Team members are standing with their home chapters, there is no maximum.
†††† The plaque may be captured by automobile or motorcycle.
†††† There is no minimum mileage required. The chapter traveling the longest distance will claim the plaque. The releasing Chapter Director shall have the final say in determining distance traveled, by using an application measuring distance from meeting place to meeting place.
†††† The capturing Chapter Director is responsible for notifying Libby Jennings (919-732-7961 Home) or (919-291-1918 Cell) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours of capture.
†††† Within thirty five(35) days of capture, starting the day and hour captured, the capturing chapter must make the plaque available at their next monthly or at their scheduled Chapter Special Event, whichever comes first.† If a chapter does not have a regular meeting or special event scheduled within thirty five (35) days, ( or in December) then that chapter is not eligible to capture the plaque.†
†††† The plaque should be awarded as soon after the meeting starts as possible. If it is being given away during a scheduled Special Event, it should be given away as soon as possible following the start of the closing ceremony.
†††† Once a chapter has captured the plaque, that chapter is not eligible to capture it again until one other chapter has captured the plaque; however if the plaque is not captured at the next monthly meeting or scheduled Chapter Special Event, then at the following meeting or event, any North Carolina chapter, including the previous chapter that possessed the plaque, may capture it to avoid having the plaque sitting idle for more than one month.
†††† The capturing chapter will attach a visitation bar to the Tarheel Traveler upon capture.
†††† The chapter capturing the plaque the most times will receive $100.00 and permanent possession of the plaque.† Any ties will be decided by a drawing at the North Carolina Operations Meeting in January.
†††† The inclusive dates for this program are from date of Operations Meeting in January to November 30 of each year.
This plaque retires on November 30th of each year.
Please get this plaque to Libby Jennings as soon as possible after November 30th.
