Obviously we would still want the info even if just found online, but should someone still get a "finders reward" for it?

Get out your binoculars lol. The balloons don't actually go on display in the U.S. until Dec. 5th and they are only out for the day. That's a lot of ground to cover in a day

Data would be entered into a hidden database by a page cerated by PbN Mastermind Kyle.

PbN staff would gather, review and submit findings

IF we won the $40K the PbN member that submitted a winning location would get 1/10 of the prize money (PbN keeps nothing) AND 5 years of FREE ASM membership and $100 gift certificate for the PbN store.

If we didn't win the $40K (LOL which is more likely) then the first person to submit one of the verified balloon locations still wins the 5 years of FREE ASM membership AND the $100 gift certificate for the PbN store.

Only the 1st person to submit a specific location would be the winner (so if five people spotted balloon X, only the 1st person to submit location X would win)

Any PbN member that registered to search for the DARPA balloons this Sat would receive a nifty DARPA PBN badge on their profile.

These would be collector badges as this is a one-time deal and the only way to get this badge.

What do you think?

Ed

How can I register?

The point is to have a group of people around the U.S. looking for them, thus why PBN has been summoned. We've got connections in every state!

for sure, what if I found information on a balloon online that a 'nation member hasn't yet submitted?

Same way you'd know it was real if anyone posted info to PbNation through the "secret" forum

obviously any "unconfirmed" locations could be posted here so that anyone within the area can go and get the required information - but in that case I think it's nice to give the person who came up with the location to have "confirmed" should get at least a partial reward.
personally I am not interested in any cash - I'd rather see the amount donated to a good cause, maybe something that would benefit paintball.

There seems to be a few people from Tampa looking. We should split up the city so were not wasting time searching in the same area.
