It's like PAX running around town playing capture the flag as part of our adult recess.
Ghost flag can only be claimed if a visiting AO has a minimum of 5 pax at the AO who possesses the flag.
A stealing AO cannot neglect their AO on the day of the stealing. Q must still show up and lead. This is for the sake of any FNGs.
If two or more visiting AOs show up to steal the flag, the AO with the most Pax wins the flag.
If two stealing AOs have an equal number of Pax, the Q of the AO where the flag is being stolen from chooses a challenge, such as 1 minute burpee off.
No minimum length of stay at an AO before Ghost Flag can be stolen.
PAX from the AO that has possession of the ghost flag must send out a message on the F3 social media of your choosing (Slack / Twitter / etc..) where the flag will be the next day. This is for the sake of those AOs who only meet one or two times per week.
Example: AO which has the flag only meets on Monday and Wednesday. AO can announce that flag will be flying at (wherever) Tuesday AO. Home Tuesday AO is not eligible to steal the flag, but any other AO can show up to steal.
**Note** This means that just because your AO only meets on one day a week is no excuse that the ghost flag is not posted with a PAX at an AO. That flag should be displayed proudly every day. If your AO only meets once a week and you stole the ghost flag, someone needs to get that ghost flag to an AO every single day.
Oh – and not to forget…. If an AO successfully steals the Ghost Flag from an AO where the flag was not present (and should have been), the successful AO can choose an “exercise punishment” for the Site Q and/or resident PAX to perform during their next workout.
