This is information I just got from Kyle at GARS:

2016 North Georgia Fox Hunt sponsored by The Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society

Saturday April 16th, 2016 at 10AM EDT

Radio Direction Finding on 2m and 70cm
Form teams to represent your club
Entries are separated into “Classic” and “Doppler Assisted” classes
Trophies for each class will be presented later
147.150+ 141.3 for instructions and critical fox information
Teams must register at the starting point to participate
Event starts at the sign in which is in front of the Goodwill at 8560 Holcomb Bridge Road, Johns Creek GA (some GPS say this is Roswell) https://goo.gl/CR7Sg7
There is no charge to participate

The 2016 North Georgia Fox Hunt is a life-like scenario. There is widely heard interference on 2m. Your team hunts for it (by car). Once discovered, you will find it is a legal cross band repeater, and is not the actual source of the interference. The real interference is coming from 70cm and you must hunt for the source (on foot). Because Doppler assisted teams have an advantage over classic teams, and because not everyone has this technology, trophies will be presented to teams in each class to try to keep it fun and fair for everyone.

Weather statement: The 2016 North Georgia Fox Hunt will be held rain or shine, except in the case of strong winds, lightning, or thunderstorms. Monitor the fox repeater frequency of 147.150+ 141.3 the morning of the competition if weather has the potential to be an issue. Come out, represent your club, hunt the fox, and have fun!
