    Night Hare and Hound...Anyone Know How?

    Looking for input on how to organize a night Hare and Hound event.

    Thinking a Chem light for the Hare and Led lights in the spokes...five minute head start. Don't know what to do if you catch the Hare?

    After an hour...sound a horn for thirty minutes left...start the fire...set out the chairs and open the coolers and wait for the Hare to show up.

    Thinking Friday nights starting at 8pm.

    Bring your own drink or charge to cover?

    Meet at Apache Lands...?

    Well?

    Night Hare and Hound...Anyone Know How?

    Go modern, which would require everyone use a GPS or map, and make the Hare a waypoint. Short Track Papgo was like this (and still may be) where they set a start point a turn around point and back. Since there are multiple options to take there, it works pretty good.

    Sounds cool, depending on how many people show I would have 2-3 hares. Use simple back, red blinking LED lights - easy to mount on bikes or back packs.

    Where the hell is apache land?

    apache land is one of the trail heads for the Gold Canyon system. I think the cloud view parking lot would be better

    if you catch the hare, you both stop. he gives you the hare lights,( should be a quick exchange) and then you become the new hare. the new hare takes off and the old hare has to wait the same amount of time as the rest in the beginning before pursuing the new hare. this is the penalty for being caught. meanwhile, everyone is still chasing the hare. The winner is the the rider who is the hare at the end of the hunt (ride). they should be the first to finish. sounds like fun to me!
